Healthy Hot Spots

Until now I’ve limited my healthy hot spot posts to Manhattan, but I just had to share this gem of a healthy juice bar in Miami David and I found on a recent trip there. In desperate need of some R&R (and Vitamin D!), David and I ventured down to Miami for Memorial Day weekend. We’re not big fans of South Beach so whenever we go we stay in downtown Miami.

healthy juice bar in miamiOn our previous trips, it had been difficult to find healthy options in that part of town but this time we were pleasantly surprised that a Yelp search turned up a few options, including The Juice Spot just a short half-mile walk from our hotel. It’s dubbed “Miami’s first wifi bar fully equipped with organic cold pressed juices, superfood smoothies, Acai and oatmeal bowls.” But it’s real claim to fame is that LeBron James’ wife, Savannah James, is the owner.

After our first visit, we promptly returned after our workout every  morning we were there and felt fueled and pleasantly satisfied until it came time for lunch by the pool. I’m pretty particular when it comes to smoothies and theirs were so delicious and the perfect consistency and temperature. Plus, you can’t beat those straws! We also loved loved loved the acai bowl.

What I Ate: Smooth Hydrator Juice, Get Zen Smoothie, Peanut Butter Dream Smoothie, R&R Smoothie and the Acai Bowl

When We Dined: Every morning of Memorial Day weekend

Also On the Healthy Side: All of it!

Be In the Know: Most smoothies are listed with whey protein. They have hemp protein but it’s not on the menu. Just ask!

Healthy Hot Spot: Jack’s Wife Freda

I have to be honest, for two whole years the SoHo cafe Jack’s Wife Freda has been on my never ending wish list of NYC restaurants to try– the name alone makes it intriguing —  but for whatever reason I kept missing it. Luckily, I had the chance to go  last weekend with Women Who Brunch and […]

It’s been forever since I’ve written a Healthy Hot Spot post. Why? Because David and I are eating at home more than ever and we love it. We DO get out on occasion (a girl’s gotta live a little!). But I swear now that my belly is used to home-cooked food, restaurant food mostly feels […]

Healthy Hot Spot: Westville

I have one requirement for weeknight dinners out with friends: it has to be healthy. Weekends can be more lax but I lack to stay on track on weeknights. Last week I accompanied my friend, wedding and event planner Karen Brown, to an event at the Metropolitan Pavilion. After a few hours sipping champagne and […]

Healthy Hot Spot: Smile To Go

A gem hidden on the fuzzy border between Tribeca and SoHo, Smile To Go isn’t your average greasy spoon takeout spot. The unassuming storefront is nestled among the galleries and boutiques that line Howard Street, a tiny, less-traversed passage between Lafayette and Broadway just north of Canal. If it weren’t for the lunchtime line that […]

New Yorkers love their brunch, but truth be told, it often leaves me feeling tired and groggy. But the organic, vegan-friendly menu at Le Pain Quotidien has the opposite effect. On any given weekend, David and I can be found at the Tribeca location enjoying breakfast after our morning workout. With locations in more than […]

For everyone who thinks BBQ can’t be healthy, think again. In my relationship, one of us is clearly a BBQ lover while the other (ahem, me), would rather eat dirt. Needless to say, I’ve found myself playing the role of good sport in a few BBQ joints over the years, munching on sides while my […]

Healthy Hot Spot: Dig Inn Seasonal Market

When I worked in an office, I longed for healthy lunch options. Believe it or not, I eventually even swore off  deli salads because of the lack of organic produce available and the negative energy of the guys who slapped them together at warp speed behind the counter. (Hint: Think about the energy in the […]

Healthy Hot Spot: Kutsher’s Tribeca

I gave up my bagel and cream cheese habit several years ago. Thankfully, you won’t find that kind of deli fare on the menu at Kutsher’s Tribeca. Instead, you get a contemporary spin on Jewish American classics artfully served up (in ample portions) in a clean and modern bistro setting. Eager for a light lunch, […]
