Hi everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your week so far!
When it comes to food and eating, I must admit that I'm not as health conscious as I probably should be. I've always been the girl who lives by the concept that you can eat whatever you want, as long as it's in moderation. Carbs, meats and sweets are a daily necessity. Fruits and vegetables are also in my diet, but they don't make an appearance in every meal.
A couple of weeks ago, Kale Me Crazy, a new "upscale juice bar that specializes in cold-pressed juices, smoothies, and raw foods", invited me to try their menu. I was immediately intrigued by their concept and its 'sub-promotion' of healthy eating and its benefits. It's just that when I think of Atlanta/Southern cuisine, places like Kale Me Crazy aren't exactly what comes to mind. I decided to give it a go, not just because I was curious, but maybe this could help me start to make better food choices in my own diet.
It does not get any healthier than this!
While I was there, I got to try the ACAÍ BOWL--organic acaí, coconut milk, date, blueberries, cashews, and banana or strawberries, topped with coconut, granola, mint, and raw honey. Think of it as a cross between a smoothie and ice cream, with a few additional toppings. Cool, refreshing, and surprisingly addicting!
In addition to trying their breakfast option, I also sampled their entire cold-pressed juice line! While KALE YEAH and BEET-L-JUICE seem to be a favorite among customers, my personal favorite is the FIRE FIGHTER, which contains carrot, apple, celery, ginger, and cayenne. It's their only juice that comes with a nice kick from the cayenne!
I'm so glad that Atlanta has a place like Kale Me Crazy--I do believe it is something that the food scene here is lacking. When I inquired about the possibility of opening more locations around the city, they said that it's definitely in their future plans, as long as their current location in Inman Park succeeds. (They've only been open for three weeks.) And while I won't be buying a juicer any time soon, I can definitely see myself stopping by every now and then for that spicy FIRE FIGHTER and that oh-so-delicious ACAÍ BOWL.
