I have long held that I have no interest in liquid calories minus alcohol.  Only partly kidding, but sodas and juices have never really been my bag.

However, in the past few years, as vegetable juices have turned {more} mainstream, they are the one place I make exception.  Green juice in the morning is one of my favorite things!

So when this weekend’s dinner included dear friends Michelle and Bryan, who happen to be the lovely owners of local fave Living Greens, I couldn’t hide my excitement when they brought a few flavors for us.  We broke into two to sample as a group after dinner – Mahalopeño {pineapple, kale, cucumber, jalapeño} and C Booster {carrot, apple, lemon, ginger}. Sooo good  – even the veg-shy Mr. is a giant fan!

Plus, I think they helped stave off the effects of perhaps too much wine. And the bonus of a Coconut Smoothie {fresh young coconut water blended with coconut meat} in the fridge for morning helped any lingering ailments.

If you are in SF, I highly recommend checking them out!  And regardless of where you are, it’s time to add juice to the menu.
