Vitality Tap- San Diego has some of the best weather in the US, so its a prime spot for long runs and outdoor fitness. I enjoyed a 15 mile run on my first day there and needed some plant-based nourishment stat! Luckily I found Vitality Tap, which I ended going to every morning I was in town. They have a great selection of superfood smoothies, bowls, juices and hot food as well. All organic as well! I got the Acerola smoothie bowl and avocado toast and both were winning. I had a good hang with the owner Eddie, who was a great dude as well. Definitely recommend supporting Vitality Tap when in SD, they will not disappoint.
Greenleaf Juicing Company- We had a few minutes before soundcheck at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland and after a crazy workout in Seattle in the morning, I was ready for some plantbased nourishment! I was so fortunate to have found Greenleaf. They have a great smoothie/juice menu, quinoa and oatmeal bowls and super good homemade soups as well.
They are 100% vegan and organic and the prices are really reasonable. The staff is friendly and overall the vibe in there is laid back and not uppity at all (which in my opinion is a downside of some urban juice bars)
I got a veggie juice and a green smoothie which were both on point but the the soup is definitely worth mentioning! I got the Garlic Greens soup- that alone is worth going back for. I highly recommend Greenleaf when in Portland and looking for a some healthy goodness!
