Life Alive: clean eating

I was very happy to spend some quality time recently with my sister in Boston. It's been ages since I visited, and she made it a point to show me a number of new restaurants, buildings, renovations and more. On the agenda was a great 'urban oasis and organic cafe' called Life Alive

The way they put it, 'A delicious meal ... is the starting point for nurturing the body and soul.'  And they're onto something. Sure, there are other organic places around, but this one has such great decor, an inviting vibe, and a line out the door and around the corner. 

We intentionally went for a late lunch to avoid the crazy time. The only downside of this is that they'll maybe be out of a special topping (avocado in this case).

I tried The Goddess (foreground in the photo), with ginger nama shoyu sauce over carrots, beets, broccoli, kale, tofu and brown rice. Melissa had The Adventurer, with sesame ginger nama sauce over corn, beets, broccoli, kale, cheddar, sprouted legumes, tamari almonds, quinoa and brown rice. 

Both were absolutely DEELISH, crunchy and totally satisfying. I mean, serious flavor. Balance that out with the Love Alive smoothie with blueberry, strawberry, banana, date and chia-almond milk, and it's hard to beat.   

If you're getting ready for a cleanse, are a serious juicer, raw eater, health nut or just someone who wants to feel better, this is the place. Too bad they only have locations in Massachusetts! I'll have to campaign to get Life Alive into Houston.
