Raw Eats, Organic Fresh Pressed Juices, Salads, and More from West Palm Beach
First off we have some organic fresh pressed juices! This red one is called ZEN. It had Red Beet, Red Apple, Fresh Ginger, and Lemon. It was great! It was part of my lunch that day along side a salad. I had a LOT of salads and they were all great! I also got a bunch of ideas for salad dressings, too!
I really enjoyed both juices! There were about 3 or 4 other choices, too, but they were REALLY expensive. They averaged between 13 and 15 dollars each. I opted for those rather than the 'adult beverage' options.
The colors of the juices were AMAZING! And they were oh-so-tasty!
The dressing was a citrus balsamic...yummy, yummy, yummy!
As you can see it has greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc. ALL of the lettuces were so crispy and fresh. I am pretty sure that all of the tomatoes they used in all of the restaurants there were heirlooms, too!
Don't you just LOVE hierlooms?
The juice you see in this photo is fresh squeezed grapefruit juice! It was terrific! I need more grapefruit juice in my life...I have missed it a lot!
Other mornings I have various berries, melons, some pears, lots of citrus, etc.
Around mid to late afternoon I had a lot of veggies and some fruit too. Here is a plate from one of those mini meals. I had corn chips with a really great salsa, some guacamole, plus some raw squash, cucumbers, celery, and jicama. I must have eaten my weight in jicama!!! I think I had a slew of it each day! YUM!
Other days I had various sweet peppers, carrots, zukes, beans, tomatoes, grapes, etc...
And I just LOVED these little shot glasses they put them in, too!
This Mango Soup had, of course Mango, citrus, red pepper flakes, and some herbs!
Yeah...so...the coconut water IN the coconut was still $12! Oye!
But it's not like I get REAL coconuts and fresh coconut water here in the snow belt so I was stoked to get it when I could!
The last full day we were there we decided to go to their Italian Restaurant and when I made the reservations they asked us if we had any special requests and I said 'Well, I'm looking for vegan options' and when we showed up our super nice waitress was WONDERFUL and said 'I know you are vegan let me tell you what we can do for you' and suggested the roasted brussels sprouts (with a bit of onion) in oil and they were done to perfection!
I also had a salad similar to the one with the pears and leafy greens above. There was also a bruschetta, too! YUMMO!
I could have eaten this dish every day I was there but the salads, fruits, and juices were DELISH, too!
So...what do you think of some of the foods I consumed on vacation? I think I did really good! I certainly behaved myself and kept things interesting!
