Imagine: you’re making your way through dense traffic when a pang of hunger strikes. You pull into a drive-thru and order a vegan breakfast sandwich, organic kombucha, and berry flax smoothie.
No need to pinch yourself, you’re not dreaming. This is your new reality thanks to Plant Power Fast Food, and they’re coming to the LA area with locations in Long Beach and Redlands in San Bernardino County.
Plant Power Fast Food is a vegan drive-thru restaurant with a strict no GMOs and no artificial ingredients policy. Their mission is to provide “nourishing fast food that feeds your soul and makes your mouth happy.” (Insert hand raising emoji here).
Ready to take on the McDonald’s and Burger Kings of the world, Plant Power is about making vegan food friendly and delicious for everyone. So, whether you’re a vegan who misses the taste of eggs and bacon or a curious omnivore who likes the idea of ordering a meatless meal from your car, Plant Power has you covered.
If you think eating a plant-based meal on the road means dissecting the menu or investigating the ingredient list, think again. Plant Power is open and honest about what their meals are made of, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the many vegan options at your fingertips.
Satisfy your hangry belly with one of their burgers, shakes, tenders, wraps, fries, and soft serve. Coming for breakfast? Check out the egg and cheese muffins — sub a fried egg for the patty for an extra $1.50. In between options like voodoo fries (fries smothered in sauce and grilled onions) and Big Zacs (think: vegan Big Mac) are healthier selections like the Avocado Kale & Quinoa salad and Raw Tacos loaded with guacamole, hummus, and veggies.
And no trip to a fast food restaurant is complete without something to sip on. Try the Kombucha Float or Peanut Butter milkshake blended with almond milk (praise the vegan powers that be).
You won’t only feel good about the food you’re eating, you’ll feel good about what you’re unwrapping. All of the packaging is biodegradable and compostable.
In a perfect world, we’d meal prep every day. But sometimes, a trip to a drive thru is just plain necessary. Rather than head to Wendy’s (and wonder what you’re eating), stop by Plant Power for peace of mind and real food.
Redlands (perfect pit stop on the way to Joshua Tree) is open as of fall 2018, and while Long Beach's outpost was delayed, expect it early 2019.
