Hey Boston! Free Food on November 4th at VERTS Mediterranean Grill!


If you’re looking for some free food, then you may want to check out a restaurant that’s new to Boston.

VERTS Mediterranean Grill, which is based in Austin, Texas, is expanding north and opening a new location at 95 Summer Street this Friday, November 4th.

I learned about VERTS from reading two blog posts. Boston area food bloggers, Georgina of A Noted Life and Tina of Carrots ‘N’ Cake were both invited to Austin and wrote about their trip and the new Boston location.  The details of the free food are below.

After opening 34 restaurants in Texas, we’ve finally made it up north. And we can’t wait for you to try our fresh, customizable Mediterranean fare.

Our doors open at 95 Summer St. on November 4th and we’ll be giving away free entrées all day: pitas, salads, and bowls. All loaded up to your liking with your choice of protein (beef + lamb, chicken, pork, beef meatballs, falafel), toppings (sumac onions, pickled jalapeños, quinoa tabbouleh, grilled veggies, and feta, among others), and our delicious sauces. Try the tzatziki. Then try to spell it.

Our flavors will transport you to the Mediterranean. Until you look outside and see that it’s snowing. We hear it does that here.

The first 200 people in the door will leave with a bag of VERTS goodies: gift cards, recipes, and swag, so stop by early.

If I get a chance, I may make my way over there and try some food myself. I love Mediterranean food and can always use a free lunch!

Nourish Your Soul: Free Samples at Copley Square Monday, September 28th!

Nourish your soul nutrientsNourish your soul smoothiesnourish your soul juicesDo you like fresh and nutritious juices and smoothies? Well, you’re in luck!

Boston’s first cold-pressed juicing shop, Nourish Your Soul, is opening a third location upstairs at Healthworks Back Bay (441 Stuart Street, Boston) in the heart of Copley Square.

Joining South Boston (15 Channel Center Street, Boston) and West Medford (17 Playstead Road, Medford), the new Back Bay location will be Healthworks’ primary café and is open to the public.

Also, for the first time, Nourish Your Soul will offer breakfast and lunch items, in addition to cold-pressed juice, made-to-order smoothies, cold-brewed coffee and snacks.

Susan Cabana, the company’s founder, is also a health and wellness expert. Her personal story is quite compelling.

At age 37,  she was suddenly widowed and left alone to raise her three young daughters. Then she lost her job. She explains how she started to heal herself and founded her business along the way.

I started running and then found yoga. It was on my yoga mat when my teacher asked the question, “What would you do if you had no barriers or fears?”

In that moment, I knew I wanted to pursue a career of helping people heal themselves through a healthy lifestyle that includes food, movement, meditation, gratitude, and, of course, juice.

The biggest transformation in my life was adding one green juice a day. Nourish your Soul is more than just a juice & smoothie shop.  Each juice and smoothie we create heals and nourishes the body.

At Nourish Your Soul, we empower individuals to achieve optimal health and happiness one breath, moment, and sip at a time.

Most of us are trying to find ways to live happier and healthier lives. Yoga, meditation and eating healthy all resonate deeply with me. Nourish Your Soul sounds like a wonderful place to regroup, refresh and nourish yourself. I’m looking forward to trying many of their offerings. For people into cleanses, they have those too.

If you’d like to try some free samples, head over to the new location in Copley tomorrow 5pm – 7pm for their Grand Opening. Also, enter for a chance to win giveaways like cleanses and gym membership discounts!
