Breakfast Is Served All Day Long at Hutch & Spoon in Denver

July 22, 2015 4:41 pm

The aroma of fresh brewed coffee permeates the air as you walk into the Hutch & Spoon in Denver. Regulars report that the space exudes a warm, friendly vibe, and that's the exact intention of the cafe's owner, Tracy Zimmer. She founded Hutch & Spoon as a place where Denver locals could connect over platefuls of fresh, wholesome fare.

While the menu changes frequently, breakfast items might include a breakfast burrito with egg, bacon, cheddar, and chipotle potatoes; yogurt and fresh fruit; and just-baked pastries. Breakfast is served open to close, but diners who prefer lunch fare can opt for a Swiss and bacon sandwich on sourdough bread, among other selections. Be sure to pair your lunch with Hutch & Spoon's cucumber or pineapple-ginger soda, both of which are made in-house.

The Hutch & Spoon is open for breakfast and lunch 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays.

The Best Foods to Eat After a Workout

July 15, 2015 4:04 pm

You need to refuel after you’re done working out in order to maximize your workout results, and these post-workout snacks are some of the best for speeding up recovery and maximizing results.

  • Protein shakes. If you work out by lifting weights or doing other strength training exercises, a protein shake will help to build muscle and promote recovery. You can make one at home using foods like peanut butter, banana, and almond milk, or you can purchase a shake already made.
  • Steamed vegetables with tofu. Fresh, green vegetables provide nutrients that keep you feeling energized, while the tofu offers a boost of protein without any meat.
  • Oatmeal with fresh fruit. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, refuel after a workout by eating a bowl of steel cut oats with fresh fruit for a boost of natural sugar and protein.
  • Grilled chicken with brown rice. Lean meats are packed with protein for muscle recovery without any unnecessary fats. The brown rice also offers a boost of carbohydrates that will help boost your energy levels.
