7-Eleven -- that paragon of healthful, definitely not shameful eating -- might be the place to get your collection of Thor 2 commemorative Slurpee mugs, but now the convenience store is targeting the Whole Foods crowd with a new fresh foods initiative to counter the urge to eat a Big Bite chili dog at 4am.
7-Eleven started this journey last year by introducing more breakfast items, like the $1 chicken biscuit sandwich. But now it's also offering a healthier egg white breakfast. Broader beverage and snack options (Chobani yogurts for everyone!) are also a focus in the chain's effort to get in on the growing fresh food movement, which means you'd better get used to 7-Eleven kale salad, and fear the day that your Slurpees come laced with flaxseed.
