Best Bite - Seeds and Greens

By Melissa Donald

Much more than a natural grocery, Seeds and Greens in New Albany, Indiana is also a cafe serving meat, vegetarian, and vegan fare.  A sizable house-developed menu including a few breakfast items. Be sure to check out their daily specials at the front of the store next to the cash registers.  Gluten free items are also available.  Do you love smoothies?  Choose between seven different specialty smoothie options.  The popular Slow Cold Press smoothie is a big hit.  Allow for at least 30 minutes for this smoothie to be created.  Many people call in and place a order to pick up a Slow Cold Press smoothie.

Independently owned and operated, Seeds and Greens offers a range of high quality items such as organic and allergy free products.  Other specialty items include a large variety of bulk herbs, spices, and items to make your own tea blends.

Bulk section located in the back right side of the store.
Frequently there are monthly workshops that teach how to use essential oils.  A sizable line of essential oils are available.

Dine in and shop.  There are several locations dotting the store designated for sit down.  Make out a shopping list while you eat.  There are several different items in the store that are not found in many other groceries.  Such specialty items like certain chips, salsas, frozen meats, gluten free breads, and prepackaged allergy free mixes.

Quinoa Veggie Bowl
One of my absolute favorite items on the menu!  The Quinoa Veggie Bowl has a quinoa base (used instead of rice) topped with grilled vegetables.  A warm, high protein salad great for eating in the cooler months.  A drizzle of Asian teriyaki sauce pulls the dish together.  Filling and delicious!

Tomato Basil Soup
During my stay, this was the soup of the day.  This tomato basil soup was full of flavor.  Thick and chunky with a great tomato texture.  Perfect lunch on a winter day.

Pita Hummus Veggie Wrap
Another delicious, warm vegetarian dish.  The Pita Hummus Veggie Wrap includes grilled vegetables, feta cheese, and hummus.  Wrapped in a warm pita - served with a side. 

Seeds and Greens Salad with the house made poppy seed dressing.
Beautiful to look at and so good to eat! A lighter meal yet filling.  Served here with a small cup of soup.  This salad is packed with mixed greens, broccoli, peppers, tomatoes, onions, sunflower, hemp and flax seeds.
