Yesterday was the perfect hipster day - A and I rode our bikes through Providence to the Hope Street Farmers Market, picked up a jar of local honey, a head of Chinese cabbage, and an heirloom tomato (we didn't make it in time for the strawberries, unfortunately), and then rested on the steps at the foot of a fountain, sipping cold-pressed juice and coffee.
The rest of the day was pretty perfect as well. We discovered a new-to-us Mexican restaurant, where I devoured a dish of enchiladas verdes and washed it down with apple soda, then rounded out our grocery haul at Trader Joe's. We've spent the first week of summer vacation eating out quite a bit, so I'm looking forward to making fresh meals at home.
But back to the cold-pressed juice - I realize I'm late to the party, but holy cow is this stuff good! I had an upset stomach the night before and hadn't eaten anything yet that morning, and wandered to the cold-pressed juice stand on a whim, but one bottle of the Watermelon Slice (watermelon, apple, lemon, beet) left me feeling full and better. My NutriBullet juice concoctions are good, but this is a revelation!
The company, Fully Rooted, are based in Rhode Island and source local ingredients. Currently, they sell their juices at Rhode Island farmers markets exclusively (i.e., I'll be stalking them throughout the state). I picked up a 16oz reusable glass bottle for $9, which can be refilled for $5-6 then on. Other juices I'm eager to try are Get Your Glow (carrot, apple, beet), The Works (carrot, apple, kale, ginger, lemon), Echinacea Sunrise (orange, pineapple, beet, echinacea), and Mermaid Mint (pineapple, cucumber, romaine, mint).
For lack of a better word, I'm obsessed. The concept, philosophy, branding (from the bottle design to the website) - I'm so happy to have discovered Fully Rooted!
