Hello! Welcome to Beyond Soy!
A mediterranean diet is supposed to be one of the healthiest, and we know personally that it is one of the tastiest for sure. We only just recently discussed how Roti’s menu changed to include more soy-free options, but today we will discuss another fast casual restaurant with delicious food – CAVA.
We love CAVA because the food is delicious and the soy-free options are plentiful, plain and simple. They have straightforward ingredients and an easy-to-understand allergen menu. One of our favorite features about the allergen menu is how accessible it is. They actually include an allergen menu on the back of every printed menu you can pick up at the entrance of the store. It isn’t hidden online, although it is very easy to find online, and it doesn’t require asking the person behind the counter for an allergen menu (and thusly holding up the rest of the line). Even more encouraging, CAVA labels their items as “soy-free”, not “contains soy”, which provides a much more positive atmosphere. It’s almost as if they are saying “why not chose this soy-free option to add to your meal.”
This trend in restaurants, especially fast casual-type eateries, to include allergen information in an easy-to-find and easy-to-understand format is a huge win for everyone with food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities. It gives each person more awareness and more control over their food and we couldn’t be more supportive of restaurants opening up their menus like this.
Have a great week! If you need us, we’ll be enjoying CAVA!!
