Yin Eats: Tossed

posted by on 21/02/2012

salad *immature laughter* gets me every time! Yin Eats is back, went on a bit of a slump in recent weeks with countless number of Pret baguettes being bought. The lazy option. I ended up going to a healthy eating spot Tossed today, on that healthy hype – sort of. Yang recommended this place to me a few months back, so finally decided to check out what was so special about it. I’d always walk past it, put off by the name haha. Ended up getting the Yin salad, fully customised by one self. Sort of sounds wrong and no they didn’t toss it for me o_O More on the reverse.

Tossed is a quirky healthy eating spot, like no other. I’ve never been to a salad bar that’s so vibrant! jokes all around the spot, the back of the waiters/’tossers’ tees even says ‘would you like me 2 toss 4 u?’ haha hilarious. You can read more about the company’s history here.

Our view is that healthy eating isn’t boring. It has nothing to do with sitting in a field nibbling rice cakes and munching sunflower seeds. To us, it’s about following a balanced diet that includes lots of fresh fruit and veg, some good carbs, loads of water and the odd beer and curry as a reward! It’s a philosophical approach to life that means that when you can, you take things easy and in moderation, and you have respect for your fellow human beings and for your environment. We’re here to help you make these positive changes in your life.

So I ended up going for the bespoke salad, think Subway’s salad bar times two. The options are ridiculous, I actually had to ask the poor waitress what she recommended as I was a little overwhelmed by the choices available. Ended up going for a green lettuce base, chicken goujons, tomatoes, cucumbers, bit of cheese – mozzarella, baby potatoes and voila – you have the Yin salad. Eek, little did I know that each thing had it’s own separate value. Adding chicken goujons was around £1.50 but you know me, I can’t eat JUST greens. Chicken is a must. Something tells my salad wasn’t the most ‘healthy’ of lunches. Ah well.

Verdict? Delicious. I’d visit again and experiment with the bases and salad options. The price came up to £6.10 so it might be worth checking the prices on the flyers before picking your options in advance!
