A Little Taste of Healthy Heaven- Acai

For years I have searched high and low for the best Acai bowl in Los Angeles. From the beaches of Venice to the breakfast nooks of Hollywood, I have ventured, tasted, and left (disappointed). But now my friends, I have found the bowl with the tastiest blend of Acai, freshest topping of berries and bananas, and yummiest granola this side of the Rocky Mountains. I present to you (drum roll) Liquid Juice Bar.

Not only do they have an Acai bowl, they have 4! Each one more healthy than the next. But if your not into kale and fruit, the bowl for you is the Tropical Transfusion. So good I think it may be the best Acai concoction I've ever had. And just so I don't sell this place short, they have a full juice, smoothie and food menu. Smoothies without frozen yogurt! In LA!? Can you even imagine? Thank you Liquid Juice, I love you!!!

Tropical Transfusion
BLEND: Fresh organic apple juice or almond milk, acai, coconut meat, banana, strawberries, pineapple and mango

TOPPING: Granola, banana, blueberries, strawberries, goji berries, coconut flakes, and raw honey

Favorite Finds

Found these colorful ice cream bowls from Crate & Barrel. Love them to organize my chopped veggies for taco night, or fill them with yogurt, fruit, and granola for a yummy breakfast. But the best reason for buying these beauties is their perfect size as cereal bowls for a less guilty midnight snack ;)

A-Frame is A-OK

Last week I had the chance to finally visit the new A-Frame in Culver City. Created by Roy Choi, the man behind the Kogi Truck, A-Frame packs a Korean and Hawaiian punch with a side of comfort. Community tables, easy to share plates, and plastic dinnerware make this my new favorite homey spot. It doesn't hurt that they have great inventive dishes that keep your taste buds happy and surprised either. Good food, unpretentious, coo,l and open until 12am are all reasons enough to check out this refreshingly unique spot. I'll definitely be back to try their cracklin beer can chicken.

Furikake Kettle Corn = popcorn, corn pops, dried seaweed, sesame seeds, drizzled butter. Could have eaten 3 bowls of this.

Swordfish Brochette on tzatziki. Wasn't sure how I felt about seared swordfish beforehand, still not sure.

Their take on the "clam chowder". Similar to a green curry but one of the best damn chowders I've ever had.

Spicy Asian Baby Back Ribs with hoisin-chili glaze. Delicoius but spicy. Very spicy
