About a week ago I attended fun, tasty and inspiring wellness event at our local juice bar Manhattan Juice Bar & Cafe. There was lots of healthy goodies, informative speakers talking about how we can all transform our lives, as well as a raffle (I won pilates classes and chiropractic screening!).
We got to taste some delicious foods from Manhattan Juice Bar including the plate above: Raw Celery Salad with sunflower seeds, raw local honey and dijon mustard, Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad with parsley, lemon, onion, mint & olive oil, Avocado Tuna with parsley, onion, celery, avocado, lemon and sea salt, Raw Lentil Salad with lemon, herbs, celery, red onion, sea salt and olive oil and Roasted Beet salad with apples, raisins, spices and carrots. In the middle of the plate you can see their vegan, gluten-free energy balls that ended the tasting with a sweet note.
We also got to taste their juices and smoothies. Above are the NY Islander (mango, pineapple, coconut milk, protein powder) and the Pink Panther (strawberries, banana, vanilla almond milk, protein powder). What an inspiring night! I could totally see myself organizing and speaking at these kind of events in the near future.
