Bitches Be Balanced: Houston & Austin

Bitches be Balanced

Houston & Austin were a cities of extreme balancing due to the plethora of delicious food and beer and cocktails and fun on offer.  These were our saviours:

Houston

Pure Barre |  1948A West Gray St Houston, TX 77019

I go to Pure Barre in Williamsburg, NY, so I’m a bit biased, but I bloody love it.  Intense barre workout that gets you shaking.

Snap | Locations in Houston, Dallas, Austin and Chicago

Healthy take-out spot with amazing salad bar and a fridge stuffed full of homemade ready meals that can easily be reheated.  Seasonal and consciously sourced ingredients.  Cold press juice.

Austin

Barre3 Austin 115 Sandra Muraida Way #103, Austin, TX 78703

Some of the best barre classes I’ve ever taken.  The studio is large and airy and is full of Texan friendliness

Picnik 1700 South Lamar 400-B, Austin, TX 78704

Paleo food truck with the most ridiculous bulletproof coffee list.

JuiceLand | Several Locations

Cold-press juice.  Nuff said.

Casa De Luz1701 Toomey Road, Austin, TX 78704

Macrobiotic set price lunch.  Think soup, salad, veggies, rice and beans.  Dessert for small extra charge.

Bitches be Balanced: Nashville

Bitches be Balanced, Nashville

If you read our previous post on Nashville, you will know that it was a pretty over-indulgent 4 days.  Here were my favourite places to make myself feel a little better about life:

juice. Nashville | 1106 Division Street, Nashville 37203

The first cold-press juicery in Tennessee.  Huge selection of small batch cold-press juices.  TIP: get there early as they sell out quick!

Franklin Juice Co. : Acai bowl

Franklin Juice Co. | 230 Franklin Rd. Franklin, TN 37064

Delicious cold-press juices, elixirs and probably the best acai bowl I’ve ever eaten (though that could be down to them serving them in the cutest terracotta pots).  Check out their twitter to see when their van is, too!

The Post East1701 Fatherland St, Nashville, TN  37206

Delicious cafe with a whole host of gluten and dairy free options.  Vegan friendly.  Fab selection of cold-press juices and takeout salads.  Read our review of their brunch here.

Barre3501 12th Ave South, Nashville, TN 37203

This was my first time with the Barre3 franchise (I’m a Pure Barre kinda gal), but WOW have I been converted.  Ballet-pilates hybrid, this is one intense full-body workout without the impact of HIIT.  Feel stronger and more flexible after – just what the doctor ordered after days of driving!

Bitches be Balanced: Miami

Bitches be Balanced, Miami

Welcome to the first BITCHES BE BALANCED post, where George will give the down low on all things juice, health and workout that happen alongside our more indulgent endeavours and hours sat behind the wheel.

Although the first thing I did after landing in Miami was go off in search of green juice, here it was all about Acai bowls. One of the hottest breakfasts that have been circulating in the health food world over the past 3 years, acai bowls are blended frozen acai berries (native to Brazil), usually with another frozen fruit such as banana or other berries, superfood powders, a splash of nutmilk, and topped with as much as you can you can pile in your bowl (granola, fruit, seeds, etc). Its basically a smoothie/ice cream hybrid that tastes amazing and is totally Instagrammable.  It’s also conveniently loaded with antioxidants, vitamin C and healthy fats.

Here were our top 4:

 IMG_1418JugoFresh several locations, we visited 222 N
W 26th St, Miami, FL 33127

Amazing acai bowls, alongside the best juice in Miami, salads and delicious cold brew coffee with coconut water and reishi.

10 Fruits | 143 NE 3rd Ave, Miami, FL 33132

Juices, smoothies, acai bowls, sandwiches and salads.  We recommend the almond and green acai bowls.

Under the Mango Tree 714 6th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Adorable bohemian vegetarian cafe. Great to grab a smoothie to take to the beach!

Jucy Lu2621 NW 2nd Ave Miami FL 33127

Cold-press juices and organic food in the achingly cool area Wynwood. Everything locally sourced. The turmeric shots are a winner.
