If you follow me on Facebook, you know that last week I took a short trip to Miami — I put up a bunch of pictures of the juice that I drank and the food that I ate down there.
What you didn’t see was food from a visit to Choices Cafe, an organic vegan restaurant in downtown Miami, right off of Brickell.
Given that several of my friends in the industry had told me about Choices Cafe and the restaurant has been listed in my Pressed Organic Juice Directory for quite some time, I was eager to go check it out. Read More »

Victoria Boutenko, a household name in the raw food world, is a huge advocate of green smoothies. She has written books about green smoothies and documents how they have transformed lives. Victoria Boutenko also believes that all fruits and vegetables can be combined.
