Shred — A Creative Salad Kitchen
Eating your veggies has never been so tempting. The vibrant purples and pinks of shredded beets, varied greens of lettuce, spinach and kale, and the oranges of marinated root vegetables are your palate to play with as you build your own salad. Allowing people to pick and choose is all part of the fun, and a key part of the concept at Shred, where they encourage you to try something new. This is the time to experiment with pea shoots, vegan ranch dressing, Japanese rice wraps and almond butter cups. Stainless-steel warmers hold freshly made soups and curries, glass mason jars are filled with smoothies (seven flavours) and baskets hold treats sweetened with dates and honey. In the mornings this is an ideal place to grab an acai protein bowl and freshly pressed juice for breakfast on the go, or to relax in the sunshine. Shred is a new addition to the variety of eateries along Main Street, which is fast becoming known as Whistler’s foodie row. The owners are locals who saw a need for more healthy eating options and wanted to find an accessible way to encourage people to go for greens. Designed to be a onestop shop for affordable, healthy eating, Shred offers options for vegetarians, vegans and meat eaters daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. New for this summer, they’ve added protein coffees and bulletproof iced coffee to the menu to cater to active locals and resort guests.
