Life Alive Urban Oasis & Organic Cafe

When..

Life Alive | The Adventurer

Life Alive | The Adventurer

in Boston and looking for something healthy to eat, it’s worth making a stop in Cambridge at Life Alive Urban Oasis & Organic Cafe. I was up that way last weekend and went for lunch – totally thrilled . The super flavorful options are organic and vegetarian, so every dish is packed with good ingredients and whole foods. From juices to bowls, the menu’s got something for everyone. Personally, I’ve been craving The Adventurer since.

Bar Gelato by Naia

All I can say is..

Bar Gelato

Bar Gelato

WOW. I never actually tried Bar Gelato by Naia, but if these pops taste as delicious as they look in this photo, then I’m sold. I love a treat in the evening and this Italian frozen dessert is made with milk (rather than cream) so it has more flavor with fewer calories – which might leave me feeling a bit less guilty with my indulgence. They have unexpected flavors like grapefruit sorbetto, blue bottle coffee, numi jasmine and st. george single malt whiskey. Hoping to pick some up next trip to Whole Foods, fingers crossed!

Roasted Brussel Sprouts

The veggie of the moment..

Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Roasted Brussel Sprouts

seems to be brussel sprouts. Simple to prepare (always a must with me) and so savory, if done right.

Find an easy recipe here. In my home we first boil them for 5-7 minutes so the sprouts are tender, and once they are ready to go in the oven add speck or bacon for a bit more flavor, delish!
