Amanda's Appetizers

Local Thyme

I met my friend Julie for lunch last week. She’s also gluten free! We were going to go get pizza, but decided last minute to eat healthy. I found a restaurant halfway between the two of us called Local Thyme. It has a lot of gluten free, paleo and vegan options. It’s just the kind of place you would find in Manhattan, but it wasn’t overpriced.

I got the burrito bowl with brown rice. ItΒ was vegan and gluten free and had black beans, sweet potato, corn, pico de gallo, scallion, garlic, guacamole, lime and cashew cream.

I just noticed I got a lemon instead of a lime! Oh well. I mixed everything together and ate it all.

It was so delicious and filling. It was a larger portion that I thought it would be but I was okay with it because it’s packed with nutrients. The cashew cream didn’t taste like cashews orΒ and was very creamy. It actually gave off a little cheesy taste.

Julie got the ALT (mashed avocado, sunflower sprouts, tomato & cilantro) on a gluten free wrap. Hers was also vegan and gluten free.

I don’t know how this picture is so blurry. Julie liked hers too.

We ate our lunches downstairs and just caught up. We will definitely be going back in the future.
