CocoBurg started in Brooklyn, NY through the successful launch of a Kickstarter project (which received 34% more money than its funding goal).
CocoBurg is the first (raw, vegan, soy-free, gluten-free – minimally processed) coconut jerky. The jerky is now even selling on Amazon.com (and Prime members get free 2-day shipping– so try this new, better kind of jerky ASAP!).
I had the opportunity to try CocoBurg, and here is my review: We have a winner! CocoBurg is sweet and juicy, and tangy and delicious. It’s slightly addictive (in a good way!)- and it’s definitely a snack that you don’t have to feel guilty about. Not only is it cruely-free, it is also actually GOOD FOR YOU! Who would have guessed? A snack that tastes great, makes you feel good – and has the best interests of the planet and our environment in mind. Can’t beat that!
When I have two of these per day, that means I’m consuming about ONE POUND OF GREENS + 100% of my vitamins and minerals. Talk about awesome! It’s the easiest (and most delicious!) way of fulfilling my ‘5 fruits and vegetable’ needs that I know of.

I went to The Lunch Room in Ann Arbor. The seemed like the “best” vegan restaurant in town (after doing a Foursquare and Yelp search). I was looking for somewhere with good food, but also relatively healthy. I found them on social media, because they have good looking fan-posted images and their reviews overall seemed positive.
Tomorrow I am getting up for a long day at work, and then I am traveling on a train for 5 hours, from Chicago to Detroit. I will wake up at 5:25am and will get to Michigan at 1am. Needless to say: LONG DAY.
How will I stay healthy, focused and energized for this long day?
In the video below I show you what I will be eating over the course of the day, and why it makes sense (nutritionally) as the PERFECT FUEL for the day I will be going through:
Pret A Manger, Washington DC now offering green juice and raw coconut water.
The 14.5 oz cold pressed green juice (in this case: “apple, cucumber, spinach, celery & lime”) is $5.99 (+tax) and tastes pretty green albeit very sweet from the apple (That being said, I can definitely taste the presence cucumber – which is a good, healthy-tasting thing).
I am happy to see more raw, vegan, health-conscious and nutritious food products coming to the Washington DC market.
The only criticism I could offer (which may be a deal breaker for some) is that the juice is NOT labeled ORGANIC. While not being organic does allow for a lower price point, which will get more people trying green juice… in order for this beverage to be fully legit, and meet a high level of quality: Pret a Manger needs to make this green juice organic and market it as such (as they have done a good job with for their organic coffee).
All in all, I am excited to see more green juice in Washington DC!
