“Mock Chicken” is Back for Brunch!


glcMockChickenWe are so happy to bring back “Mock Chicken” salad for our brunch this Sunday. This was one of our original menu items that we started out with at our West Columbia location and so many of you have not had the opportunity to taste our vegan, raw version of chicken salad. Today’s chicken salad is quite a bit different then long, long ago. As many of you know today’s mass produced or non free range chickens:

1 – Are fed large amounts of antibiotics and drugs to keep them alive in conditions that would otherwise kill them. These antibiotics make chickens grow so large, so fast that they often become crippled under their own weight, and another reason is to get them to the market in only 6-7 weeks time after being hatched from an egg. Its this type of antibiotic use that makes drugs less effective for treating humans.
2 – Studies are done all the time but in a recent one done in Dec, 2013 97% of chicken breasts tested have some sort of harmful bacteria and in an Apr, 2012 study 48% have fecal contamination. If it comes from a coop more than likely you will be eating poop.
3 – Chicken is loaded with dangerous levels of arsenic, which can cause cancer, dementia, neurological problems, and other ailments in humans and is one reason Men’s Health magazine ranked chicken number one in their list of the “10 Dirtiest Foods”.

Yes we are glad to have you back “MOCK Chicken” salad. Maybe we should consider a name change though?
