Fork in the Road: Gingersnaps Coffee House and Cafe

In the spirit of the New Year, many have made to work out more and eat more healthfully. The Fork in the Road Crew is no different.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - In the spirit of the New Year, many have made to work out more and eat more healthfully. The Fork in the Road Crew is no different.

So, they enlisted the help of nutritionist Sarah James from Nutrition to Grow to help them find some healthy dishes.

Sarah set the guidelines for a healthy meal and then the Fork in the Road Crew, of course, volunteered to try them.

Their first stop was Gingersnaps Coffee House and Café.

Lisa Eilbracht has run Gingersnaps for seven and half years inside the Open Door Book Store behind the mall. So, when Sarah gave Lisa the healthy guidelines, she came up with a half sandwich and soup combo.

"It is under 500 calories and I have several combinations that will fit into that,” Lisa explained. “It's a turkey pesto; turkey, bacon, provolone cheese with lettuce, tomato and pesto. It's a harvest grain with Portobello mushrooms, it's actually a vegan soup but it's a very healthy soup.”

Of course they are looking for healthy dishes, but it also has to taste great.

"I thought it was outstanding actually,” Sarah said. “I said earlier I am a condiment person and so when I eat a sandwich I don't want it to be dry, the pesto made up for that and you're getting fresh herbs in there."

So for our first stop gingersnaps hit a home run for a healthy choice and great taste.

Gingersnaps is open Monday - Saturday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. For more information, check out their Facebook page.
