A menu unlike any other Denver restaurants—this could save the world!

Hazel Dell Mushrooms are showcased in the April-May Centerpiece Menu

 

I am a big fan of TED talks. A few years ago a friend of mine got me hooked. So, this week I found one that opened my eyes toward mushrooms! The title in fact is what drew me in: “6 ways mushrooms can save the world.” The TED talk is from mycologist Paul Stamets, who lists six ways mycelium fungus can help save the universe. I am no mushroom expert, but Paul Stamets is. And if you watch this TED  talk you will see why.

I won’t go into the reasons why this is fascinating. Just trust me on this.

Denver restaurants don’t often boast that their menu could save the planet. Sounds silly, right? But perhaps this menu might! After watching this you will want to run and celebrate mushrooms.

This spinach salad power will amaze you!

Spinach and the power behind it

 

Last week was National Spinach Day. I’ll be honest, it was just another ordinary day around here.  But after reading the latest news about spinach, I want to celebrate. A group of bioengineers from a multidisciplinary research team experimented with using spinach leaves to grow healthy heart tissue. And the result will blow you away.

To us ordinary folks, spinach is mostly consumed as a salad, in a smoothie or in your favorite breakfast omelette. The idea of creating new tissue is just the tip of the iceberg on how this leafy green vegetable does the body good.

In fact, did you know, research suggest spinach can help make your workouts even more productive. That’s right. The study suggests these leafy greens make your muscles even more efficient. Popeye was right when he sang: “I fights to the finish… ’cause I eats me spinach”

So if your dreading the gym today, give yourself an extra boost and stop in to farm to table restaurant Fooducopia and enjoy our spinach and berry salad. Nothing wrong with making your workout easier, right?

Wash Park restaurants like Fooducopia are great starting points

Wash Park restaurants in Denver boasts endless walking options before or after a great meal.

 

Wash Park restaurants in Denver like farm to table restaurant Fooducopia know how good they got it. The view of the Rocky Mountains and an urban park covering 165 acres as their backyard. In fact, many people who dine at Fooducopia head straight for a walk around the beloved park. Why not? It’s too close not too.

“Wash Park is a gift from nature,” said Tim Lymberopoulos, owner of Fooducopia who often sees diners enjoy the walk to the park from the restaurant. “The beauty of it is that Fooducopia is three blocks from this wonderful huge urban park. It can’t get any better than that.”

Yep, Washington Park, or commonly known as Wash Park is the best of both worlds—when it comes to nature.

The mountains off in the distance and over a hundred acres of footbed for walking. So in honor of national walking day we put together some fun facts about Wash Park.

Did you know the Washington Park Loop is a 2.2-mile loop? This popular route for walkers and cyclists who use the park is now set to get a facelift.

The park boasts a famous statue of Wynken, Blynken, and Nod in Washington Park. The statue is in honor of American writer and poet Eugene Field known by many as the childhood poet. Be sure to check it out on your next walk.

Look up in the trees. Be on the lookout for this bird in Wash Park! America’s emblem of freedom is known to find its way to Wash Park. A few years, ago, visitors to Wash Park were treated with a bald eagle sighting.

The sun is out so why not celebrate national walking day with a trip around Wash Park followed by a menu of good honest food at Fooducopia? The day can’t get much better than that!
