Greens & Proteins to open second valley location


Beverly Poppe

Some health food tastes like sacrifice. The bison cheesesteak at Greens & Proteins tastes like deliciousness.

After only two years, Greens & Proteins Healthy Kitchen is expanding.

The restaurant for the health conscious crowd will open a new location early next year at West Flamingo Road and the 215 Beltway. The first restaurant opened in 2011 in the southeast valley near the 215 Beltway and Eastern Avenue.

The new location will be the first to offer a breakfast menu, which includes protein pancakes with organic agave syrup, scrambled tofu with tomatoes, basil and tofu chorizo and house-made granola. Greens & Proteins includes vegetarian and vegan choices and will continue to serve fresh juices and smoothies, along with made-to-order soups, sandwiches, wraps, burgers and pizza.

The menu lists calorie counts for each dish and includes a "build your own meal" option, in addition to raw food choices.

Chef Michael Trimboli will run the kitchen. Stacey Dougan, who helped bring vegan menus to the Wynn, is consulting on the raw food menu.

The new Greens & Proteins will be located at 9809 W. Flamingo Road. Hours will be 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. It will offer indoor and outdoor seating.
