In our continuous effort to promote health and wellness within our Campus and community, Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center has teamed up with Green Plate Foods to offer healthy and tasty alternatives to sugary highly-processed baked goods.
Green Plate Foods is a health-food company known for delicious yet nutritious snacks made from scratch with all-natural ingredients. They use organic, locally sourced, non-genetically modified, clean foods as much as possible. Their foods are designed under the guidance of a registered dietician and a team of trained chefs. There are no added artificial ingredients, preservatives, additives or trans fats in their products. In fact, pureed vegetables and fruits are substituted for traditional butter and refined sugar to maximize vitamin and antioxidant content while minimizing excess fat.
Products offered to Memorial Hermann-TMC employees and patrons include raw fruit snacks in cherry chocolate and apricot cranberry flavors, zucchini chocolate and oatmeal raisin cookies made with applesauce and wheat germ, banana chocolate chip and super brownie muffins made with blueberries and spinach, as well as jammy bars and granola bars. You can find these super-food snacks at Cafe Hermann, Starbucks, the Physician's Dining areas and by request for catered events.
