Alabama, Shindigs Catering, Birmingham

Comfort food? Check. Healthy food? Check. Wait… what? Make no mistake, this combination does exist, and the Birmingham-based food truck Shindigs Catering is the venue. As the name suggests, Shindigs is available for hire as a caterer for private events all around Alabama, but the truck also sets up shop at random locations to feed its hungry and adoring public. Currently, the truck is hawking signature burgers like the Willis (grass-fed beef with bacon, gorgonzola, blueberry mostarda, and truffle yogurt) and the Bueno (beef and chorizo with a 45-minute egg, manchego cheeseromesco sauce, and cilantro-lime aïoli) along with entrées like Korean steamed buns and quinoa salads. Sure, these dishes may not fit the traditional definition of “healthy,” but the meats are raised humanely; the vegetable-based items are organic, gluten-free, and vegan; and the ingredients are GMO-free and contain no hormones, antibiotics, or added trans fats.
