DOYLESTOWN, PA — There are no more reasons to not eat healthy in Doylestown.
Nourish by MAMA, one of Doylestown’s newer eateries, offers meals that are at once healthy and tasty. The concept is simple: real food, unprocessed, non-GMO and made with organic and locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.
Created by the founder of Empanada Mama, Nourish by MAMA cooks up a variety of meat-free, nutritious meals. While Kendall Bajek’s latest eatery is located nearby Empanada Mama, it’s an entirely separate concept.
“I want to share food that is simple and delicious,” Bajek said.
Located at 34 East State St. (next to Nina’s Waffles) Nourish by MAMA was created after Bajek said she found herself lacking an option for quick, affordable, and healthy meals around town.
“I decided it was time to open another little shop,” she said.
And so Nourish by MAMA was born.
The menu features vegan and vegetarian takeout with gluten-free options. Organic and GMO-free ingredients are used to create soups, salads, wraps, grain bowls, open-faced toasts and more. Smoothies may be added to the menu this spring, she noted.
Bajek herself is not vegan or vegetarian but she went with the meat-free concept to help local diners better explore all of their food groups. “I decided to open a meat-free place because I understand that we need to eat our food groups in moderation and most people tend to have meat for dinner,” she said.
At Nourish, diners can grab a quick and convenient lunch packed with vegetables and grains that is designed to keep you feeling full until dinnertime.
“Eating more vegetables is one of the easiest ways to promote health and reduce the likelihood of disease, it can just be tricky to do this with a very short lunch break,” Bajek said.
Nourish by MAMA aims to make healthy convenient for more people and “convince them that veggies can be filling if they are crafted in a nutritiously balanced bowl with flavorful sauces and fresh herbs,” Bajek said.
The current hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Extended hours are planned in early 2019.
