Tossed at the Prudential Center

11 Mar

March is National Nutrition Month. It’s the perfect time: two months after New Years Resolutions, one month after failed New Years Resolutions. December holidays always disrupt my healthier habits.

Creative and well-balanced foods are sometimes difficult to find outside of my own kitchen, so I focus on healthy eating at home and save the calories for when I’m out. With National Nutrition Month in mind (and I’m always searching for healthy and easy lunch options), I tried Tossed.

Beginning in New York City during the 1990s, Tossed offers ‘garden fresh’ salads, sandwiches, crepe wraps, soups, and catering. Meals are packaged for take-out in to-go containers and a plastic bag. During my visit I saw business people, conference attendees (the Prudential Center location is conveniently across from Hynes Convention Center), and a few families.

Tossed is set up like many other make-your-own salad establishments: suggested salads are on the menu (such as the southwest blackened chicken salad below), or you can create your own.

smoked turkey and avocado sandwich ($8.95)

seafood soup ($3.95)

southwest blackened chicken salad ($9.95), strawberry smoothie ($3.95)

The highlight of Tossed is that you can quickly create a healthy and flavorful salad on a lunch break. My pre-designed salad was light on the lettuce and heavy on the protein, so (being a veggie lover) next time I would make my own. Also look out for sugar (the smoothie was very sweet) as well as cheese and carbs outweighing vegetables in sandwich options. There is a lot of healthy lunch competition that would rank higher in taste and freshness, but Tossed should pride itself on convenience: location (if you work near Prudential) and speed were impressive.

Tossed provided compensation for this meal, but the thoughts in this post and all others on EatingPlaces are honest and true to the authors’ experiences.

    Wow that seafood soup looks thick and creamy, one of my favorite soups!
