Well, it's today my friends. Imagine this.... just back in town. Hot/cranky/starving kids and running late to an appointment with only 5 minutes to spare. Aversion to junk food and need some nourishment FAST. Let's just say it was quite the bonus to stop in at this raw juice bar food truck and meet Shandy. I smile just thinking of her. And she's a Juanita chick! After just a week and half in her space she appears to have a following of steady customers that pop into her window with questions and special juice requests. She and her husband Collin (who built the super cute deck and adorable setting outside the window) make cold-pressed juices in rented kitchen space at The Market St. restaurant and package them for sale. Cold pressing juice is really popular right now for it's fresh taste and ability to retain much of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes and nutrients from the fruit/veggies. They make smoothies and bowls in the truck on-the-spot.
What is a bowl? (photo) At Higher Leaf this could be something much different, but here it is a quart-sized to-go container filled with acai, smoothie, granola, blueberry, pineapple, strawberry, banana, coconut flakes, hemp seed and honey drizzle. OOOhhhhh yeah. So good and too big for one person in one sitting- share one with your sweetie for sure. Riley and I got one with two spoons and fought over bites til the bottom. You can also find shots of wheatgrass or ginger to cleanse the soul. And the menu is ever-changing based on what is fresh and available. In case you want this delicious awesomeness delivered to you, luck is on your side. Delivery is available currently in Kirkland and Bellevue. I'm looking forward to trying more of the juices, so far I have tried the activated charcoal lemonade (traps chemicals and prevents their absorption..see ya later hangover!) and it was sweet and delightfully fresh. Go stop by and say hi to Shandy and try a fresh and healthy liquid snack. Let us know which flavor is your fave! Hours are M-F 8-4, Sat 10-4.
