This is the last in the Skinny Grub series of blog articles in January. I will revisit it from time to time in the future. So if you have some favorite healthy grub out there, let me know.
I hope you’re holding onto to your New Year’s resolutions! Totally understandable if your resolve is starting to wane. It’s hard work being a “fit foodie” or a food-lover trying to live a healthier lifestyle. This why knowing about the healthy options is half the battle. Yes, this town has a ton of great food — gloriously rich, decadent, calorie- and fat-laden food. Don’t deprive yourself of delicious food, however, everything in moderation. I know, easier said than done, but completely doable. I’m living proof. If I can do it, you can too. But I digress.
Anyways, for those having cold feet about their healthier 2017 ambitions and need more encouragement to keep moving in the right direction, National Green Juice Day comes to the rescue on Thursday, January 26th.
Philadelphia’s two Kimpton restaurants, Rittenhouse Square’s Square 1682 and Independence Mall’s Red Owl Tavern, help the well intended stick to their resolutions by serving made-to-order, green juice with fresh, raw ingredients all year round.
Square 1682 offers:
Being Green, made with cucumber, celery, spinach, kale and lemon.
Beets Me, a raw juice made with red beets, carrots, ginger and cilantro
Daily Dose, made with Pineapple, broccoli, bell pepper and melon.
All three raw juices are served during breakfast, brunch and lunch for $9 at Square 1682. It gets better — guests can add Tanqueray gin to Being Green, Espolon Reposado to Beets Me or Bacardi Silver to Daily Dose for the perfect nutritious cocktail. All “spiked” juices are $15.
Guests can also enjoy Being Green and Beets Me at Independence Mall’s Red Owl Tavern for $8. Red Owl also offers the Rise and Shine, made with coconut, pineapple and orange juice ($8). All three raw juices are available during brunch and breakfast at Red Owl Tavern.
