We’ve Got The Juice

No seriously. We do. 99% of us are obsessed with juices, smoothies, & overpriced fruits. And yes, I did just totally make up that statistic. Why are we ok with spending $10 on a “detox” juice, but can’t afford to buy groceries? I’m not criticizing, I myself am an overpriced juice fanatic. I’d rather spend $9 on a smoothie than buy a $15 shirt at Forever 21. Why is society making me this way??

Anything green is trendy and ‘gramable (word I made up; means able to be posted on Instagram). Don’t act like you haven’t posted a picture of your açai bowl or superfood smoothie on Instagram before. I know you have. We all have. I guess it’s just the world we live in today. New juice bars pop up everywhere, and us millennials are forever trapped into expensive juice and overprices salads. I spent $20 on my lunch the other day and all I had was a sandwich and a juice. Who does that??? Me. And you.

Moral of the story? Work an extra shift so you can buy your weekly juice. Or wear the same outfit three times ’cause you can’t buy a new shirt.

My go-to spots? Raw South and Roots Juicebar. I’ve been dying to try new spots here in Miami, so let me know if you have any suggestions!

Happy juicing,

Threefold Cafe

I had been wanting to try this spot out for a while- but always forgot about it when the famous question, “Where do you wanna eat?” was asked. Luckily, when I suggested a Friday brunch to my mom, she found Threefold Cafe online and we quickly made plans.

The place is quaint and adorable and I’ll definitely be back to try more menu items. I visited their South Miami location- but there’s another one in Coral Gables. I started my dining experience with a classic cold brew (obvs). I didn’t add any cream or sugar and it was perfect to taste. It also comes served in a mason jar- so cute! I ordered the Anyway Eggs which, as the name implies, is two eggs anyway (I went with over-easy) served over some Zak the Baker (yum!) bread. My mom had the Smashed Avo which maaay have given my avocado toast a run for it’s money. It was enormous (but delicious). We also indulged in some Little Kid Waffles for dessert (you can have dessert with breakfast, right?) which were bomb.

Overall I definitely recommend this place if you want a casual, yet super cute breakfast spot. It’s moderately priced and great for a date (whether it’s with your boo or your mom). Check out some pics I took!
