I rarely post stuff about our own restaurants….but this is a big deal –because we’ve just opened a “little sister” outpost of GOOD EARTH at Ridgedale Center in Minnetonka.
It’s called FIELD DAY, BY GOOD EARTH.
The first thing you’ll notice is that this is a fast casual rather than a traditional “sit down service” restaurant, yet it offers many of the GOOD EARTH items you’ve come to love. A good number of them center around SUPERFOODS – clean, high protein, fresh, high in antioxidants, flavorful and good for you.
Another quality that FIELD DAY shares with GOOD EARTH: We’re “NOT PREACHY.” There’s no scolding here, no rules about what you should eat and shouldn’t eat – it’s about all the amazing foods we’re free to eat.
Ours is a generous planet, and FIELD DAY celebrates its bounty.
This is the kind of place where you’ll eat a great meal with no regrets, where you’ll never walk away asking yourself, “Why did I order that?” You’ll feel the opposite: PLEASED with yourself for eating great food that you actually loved, and ENERGIZED to tackle the rest of your day with vim and vigor.
So what’s on the menu? There are four principal classifications: GREENS….SANDWICHES & WRAPS…GRAIN BOWLS…and HEALTHY KIDS. And within each category there are vegan and gluten sensitive options.
GREENS include the iconic GOOD EARTH CASHEW CHICKEN SALAD, as well as the popular SESAME SALMON SALAD, with avocado, chia and sesame seeds, Napa cabbage and ginger-tahini yogurt dressing.
SANDWICHES and WRAPS include the classic GOOD EARTH THAI CHICKEN WRAP, featuring a flax seed flatbread….. as well as the ever-popular GOOD EARTH CASHEW CHICKEN SALAD SANDWICH.
GRAIN BOWLS, the third menu category, feature delicious offerings, like our popular THAI LEMONGRASS BEEF, with Jasmine rice, farro, kale, peanut sauce and cilantro yogurt. The MISO SALMON includes sustainable salmon, quinoa, edamame beans, chia and sesame seeds with miso vinaigrette.
THE HEALTHY KIDS section offers the all-time kids and moms favorite: All-Natural Annie’s Mac & Cheese. And if your kids are PB&J fans, a must for them is the BUDDY’S LOCAL ALL NATURAL PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY (no high-fructose corn syrup here)…all on our GOOD EARTH HOMEMADE MULTI-GRAIN BREAD (no Wonder Bread allowed).
For those in a hurry, try our GRAB & GO section, which includes HALF SANDWICHES…COOKIES and BARS…plus HIGH PROTEIN and GLUTEN FREE SNACK PACKS.
Oh, and do not miss the GO GREEN LEMONADE (no sugar added), loaded with kale, lemon, apple juice and ginger.
Every month you can enjoy our SEASONAL SPECIALS. December offerings include a BEEF BURRITO/BLACK BEAN WRAP…..CHICKEN CHILI….and a WILD RICE & TURKEY GRAIN BOWL as well as ROASTED ACORN SQUASH SOUP.
PARTY PLATTERS are a great choice for events in your home as well as CORPORATE FUNCTIONS……you can order them on-line through our app or by phone, then pick them up or have them delivered by BITE SQUAD or MEETING MEALS.
FIELD DAY also offers GIFT CARDS – so don’t forget your favorite clergy people, teachers, baby sitters, hair dressers, dry cleaners, mail carriers, paper boys, Sunday school teachers, and starving students. Cards are available for as little as $20.00 dollars.
One thing to note, however: Although FIELD DAY is inspired by GOOD EARTH…it is NOT a PARASOLE RESTAURANT….it has a different ownership group, so brace yourselves……no PARASOLE POINTS….NO PARASOLE GIFT CERTIFICATES.
I’m excited for you to give it a try. And to get your mouth watering right away, check out the images I’m including in this post. They tell the full story about FIELD DAY – that it’s NATURAL, WHOLESOME & UNPROCESSED. And friggin’ DELICIOUS.
