Café Gratitude – Beverly Hills, CA

My brother-in-law, who’s a vegan now, has been raving about this place for a while now.  While I’m not vegan myself, I do have an appreciation for plant-based food so I decided to check it out the last time I was in LA.  First impression was that the space is beautiful!  Open and airy, white and minimalistic…it’s a very peaceful environment.

My friend and I decided to share two things – the Mucho/Mexican Bowl and the Lucky/Torta Española Chopped Salad.  Our server recommended adding braised oyster mushrooms to the Mucho bowl to give it that carnitas taste and texture.  GREAT rec!!!  Had I not eaten breakfast already, I probably would have gone for the Festive/Chilaquiles…I’m a sucker for those.  Next time!

jugofresh – Miami, FL

I’ve decided when I travel it’s a good idea to research good juice/smoothie spots since it’s something I do at home on a regular basis and the healthy nutrients can’t hurt. I can across jugofresh in an article I was reading and without even mapping it out, stumbled upon one when exploring The Wynwood Walls.  I’m not a banana lover like most so I was immediately drawn to the Verano Fresh – coconut water, pineapple, mango, coconut meat, date and spirulina.  It was described as being hydrating, energizing and anti-inflammatory.  Perfect…and that it was!
