The fast food business is about to get a whole lot healthier with the launch of Nourish, opposite the Peace Gardens – the first in a planned national chain.
The new takeaway and restaurant, which opens on Saturday, is billed as ‘fast food with a conscience’ and aims to offer a tasty-but-healthy alternative to the all-too-common diet of fried food and chips.
“We’re going to start a new fast food revolution,” declares nutritionist David Stache, who has launched the venture with personal trainer Ben Pryor and former Milestone chef Richard Pryor.
“The country is getting unhealthier by the day and it’s hardly surprising… With the likes of McDonalds, Burger King and KFC dominating the high street, there just isn’t that much choice when it comes to healthy fast food – so we’re going to step in, take on the big boys and offer a viable nutritious alternative.”
Dishes will range from Mexican bean chilli, and spicy chicken quinoa hotpot to mackerel salad, each with a detailed nutritional analysis.
There are also plans for nutrition courses, cookery sessions and food boxes.
Open Mon - Sat, 7.30am-6.30pm; eat in or take away.
