This is a Green Latern~half gone. What is a Green Latern? A combination of celery, apple and wheatgrass juice. Well, just let me share...
I am currently a Holistic Nutrition student at the American College of Healthcare Sciences. Yes. I am working on a new certification and I am in love. With juice. With studying. With acquiring knowledge about food and juice and vitamins and nutrients. So, I have been scouting out new places to imbibe.
1. to consume (liquids) by drinking; drink:
2. to absorb or soak up, as water, light, or heat:
3. to take or receive into the mind, as knowledge, ideas, or the like:
I have definitely been imbibing~juice, as well as knowledge. Ha!
This green juice came from The Sprout: An Organic Cafe and Juice Bar. It's located on Johnnie Dodds Blvd. in Mount Pleasant and if you have never juiced, this is a great place to explore the possibilities.
Green juices are an incredible source of vitamins and minerals and nutrients and by removing the fiber and the bulk, all of those great energizing and feel good vitamins go straight into your blood stream giving you energy and vitality and a total sense of well-being.
Enough of the nutrition lesson. The Sprout is a neat, little juice bar and besides green juices, they also sell fruit smoothies and protein smoothies. Just ask for a boost...of peanut butter or flax seed or organic chocolate or vanilla hemp protein or even just some wheat-grass.
Or, skip the juices and smoothies and order a meal. I ordered both! As a to go order, I had a Grilled Black Bean and Avocado Burrito filled with quinoa, tahini, black beans, Daiya cheese, avocado and Mexican braised cabbage. On the side, I had a small organic salad with greens, carrots, tahini sauce and a walnut vinaigrette. Sound yummy? Definitely!
It's a tiny place but the food is great and the people are friendly! I would urge you to stop by and try some green juice and relax and imbibe Charleston Treasures style. They also can assist you with some Juice Fasts if you are interested in learning more...
I hope this finds you enjoying your newspaper and morning coffee and making plans for a great Sunday. We are heading to church and then, cleaning out the garage. Sounds exciting, doesn't it? Not really. At all. But, garage cleaning is one of those things that you just have to do. Occasionally. Blah.
Stop by The Sprout and enjoy some green juice and....Happy Sunday from Charleston Treasures!!
