Reviews & Rec's: Boston's First Raw, Vegan Food To-Go! Yay!

CocoBeetOne of the things I was a little bummed out about upon moving to this new city, is that they aren't necessarily on the 'up and up' when it comes to healthy, plant based restaurants. While there are a handful of really yummy ones, they're not on every street corner like I was used to when I lived in Santa Monica, or what I love about visiting NYC! Boston Smoothie and Juice BarYou can imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon this GEM the other day! What a gift to the Boston community! Onur and his partner had a vision and they brought it to life! Wahe Guru! This place is much like my most adored Pressed Juicery in NYC. They have organic, cold pressed juices and superfood filled smoothies along with raw, vegan prepared foods to go, including some desserts, snacks, salads, sandwiches and breakfast bowls! Thank God!!

CocobeetI'm so glad my friend told me about this spot, as it just opened 3 months ago! I came here after a yoga class and it was the perfect ending to my first day off in the city! I tried the Curry Chickpea Salad and a Key Lime Tart for dessert! Both absolutely delightful! As a little treat, Onur offered me some sandwiches to try. I gladly accepted and have tried them since ~ SO GOOD!

This will definitely be a weekly hangout for me! I wish them much success! "Re-Root your life"! (How awesome is that tagline?!)



Reviews: Healthy Brunching in Boston

Life Alive, CambridgeI wrote this post long ago, but it has a newfound meaning for me now that I can actually call Boston home this week!!:) Yay for moving to Boston and having some pretty awesome restaurants to choose from! I can recall many an indulgent breakfast/brunch in my college days either spent all day drinking champagne at Charleston's Vickery's, or 'still--drunk fests' at Myrtle Beach's finest ~ Denny's.

Brunch is the NEW 'weekend night out' in the most trendiest of places and will always satisfy that comfort we crave, but now that I'm a 'healthy veg girl', it's not typically a meal that I look forward to eating out because the options tend to be limited to oatmeal or toast...

You can imagine my excitement when I stumble across a healthy restaurant that caters to me and my tastebuds!

Life Alive in Cambridge, MA is tried and true! While it doesn't have a breakfast menu per say, it does have an amazing juice and smoothie menu and a lunch menu to die for! Literally, anything you get there will leave you feeling happy and satisfied!

True Bistro in Somerville, caters to the fancy vegan cuisine palette! Their dinners are lovely, but their brunches are a treasure!

Veggie Galaxy

Veggie Galaxy in Cambridge is a vegan indulgent diner haven! True to diner form, it offers malt shakes, sundaes, french toast and pancake galore set to the '50's soundtrack and a spinning case of baked goods.

ROOT in Allston is a new fave!! A super hip hot spot serving up a vegan 'foodie' menu complete with a farm style ambiance that includes mason jar glasses.

Thank you Boston, for serving up all that I crave and more! I can't wait to explore and eat my way through the city starting next week! I'll be sure to post my adventures:)

(I hear The Friendly Toast is great for brunch, so you know I'll be checking that out asap!;)
