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!
Monster green smoothie with hemp Seeds, raw cacao powder, spinach, vega energizing tropical tango smoothie, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, tropical blend frozen fruit (banana, mango, strawberry) and a spoonful of chia seeds.
Great smoothie for a healthy day and a healthy lifestyle. Eat your greens!
