Denver's on a Health Kick

See also

Proud to be one of America’s healthiest States, Colorado’s capital is moving quickly towards an even healthier 2013.

With an influx of Whole Foods locations and Trader Joe's on the horizon, Denver is rapidly setting the scene for healthier grocery and snack alternatives. Simultaneously, a new trend of farm-to-table delis and restaurants, have sprouted across the city, attracting the health conscious consumer in larger numbers than ever before.

In the Highlands area alone, hotspots Root Down, Masterpiece Delicatessen, Old Major and Beast + Bottle are contributing to a healthier city, while delivering exceptional dining experiences in well-decorated spaces. It is important to note that these concepts go well beyond mere tasting and feasting – these modish dining destinations are supporting Colorado’s agriculture, breweries, wineries and green initiatives – giving back to the State as much as they provide to the consumer.

You will certainly notice the local farm products and beverage lists, but you may not realize that what you are seated on and looking at has also been constructed from local products, recycled and repurposed goods. This is ecosystem sustenance in its most elegant form.

Modmarket is another eatery worth mentioning. Its fifth location just opened in Golden on the grounds of Colorado Mills Shopping Center and offers casual dining, complete with a caloric guide to all their meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Of course all the menus at these vogue locations are seasonal, being that they are based on the fresh farm produce currently available; providing all the more reason to stop in regularly and experience how Colorado’s finest ingredients are concocted into mouthwatering works of art.

Denver’s on a Health Kick and it tastes phenomenal – why not join the party and keep us moving towards a better Colorado?
