After her Miami getaway, I met up with Kara in Denver to spend the weekend with our East Coast transplanted pal, Kimmy. We spent the weekend relaxing, catching up, strolling through the sprawling city and surroundings, catching some live music, and of course, indulging in the local fare. A common trend out there is eating “honest” food and living healthy. Kimmy introduced us to one of her favorite spots, True Food Kitchen and we instantly fell in love. We each paired thoughtful and crazy salads with vibrant juice blends. For me, the Carrot Lemonade (carrot juice, ginger, honey and lemon), for Kara the Cucumber Refresher (cucumber and honey lemonade) and for Kimmy, the Kale-aid (kale, apple, cucumber, celery, lemon and ginger).
After a weekend of rejuvenation in every sense of the word, I flew back to Boston inspired to sift through Kara and my collection of fresh beverages as the first buds of Spring are surfacing.
For breakfast on the go the following Monday, I whipped up an
Avocado, Mango and Coconut Smoothie
Throughout the week I drank ice-cold glasses of
Cucumber, Lemon and Lime Infused Water
And for a sweet treat, I opted for cooling and not too sugary
Fresh, fruity ways to jumpstart your day!
