Vegetarian options can be hard to find, especially if you want a meal or snack that is both quick and delicious? Terri has all of the amenities and more! Conveniently located in the Financial District at 100 Maiden Lane, this is one of few places that accommodates vegetarian, gluten free, and organic superfood options. Quick in service and delicious in taste, Terri has become a favorite in the Downtown area. From the “meatball” sub to a “bacon” “chicken” cheddar ranch sandwich, Terri helps people with dietary restrictions experience the goodness of comfort food.

While they specialize in alternative comfort foods, they also value healthier options as well. Popular menu items include the hummus & avocado wrap and sugar free smoothies with kale and açaí options. Not only will their menu satisfy any of your cravings, but will benefit you as well. Their dishes are packed with cancer fighting and age fighting anti-oxidants, with zero cholesterol and no artificial ingredients.

The co-founders, Craig Cochran and Michael Pease opened Terri with the idea of making healthy super foods as accessible as fast food. This dynamic duo firmly believe that wholesome and healthy food should be the standard, not a luxury. The named Terri after their loving mothers, who just so happen to share the same name. Their mothers instilled the importance of taking care of yourself into them.

More recently, Terri has joined the juice cleanse bandwagon. Different from other cleanses, the Terri cleanse has up to 6 revitalizing drinks per day. This will fuel your body and satisfy your tastebuds. The Juice menu includes:

#1 Apple – Beet – Carrot

#2 Spinach – Cucumber – Apple – Lemon

#3 Strawberry – Mint – Lemon & a Touch of Maple Syrup

#4 Cashew – Milk (Cashews, Dates, Filtered Water)

#5 Kale – Spinach – Romaine – Parsley – Celery – Cucumber – Green Apple

#6 Pears – Spinach – Celery – Cucumber

With all the choices of juices comes all the benefits. Juice cleanses benefit jumpstarting weight loss and transitioning into a healthier lifestyle. Cost of juices vary based upon how long you decide to cleanse for. There are also extended cleanses available for those who resort to long term juicing. Terri’s juices are not only delicious, but can help you feel better, look better, and boost your immune system, and thus your health. Whether you are in the mood for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a quick and healthy snack, Terri’s is the place for you!
