Want to start off your year strong in terms of nutrition and health? Make South Block part of your weekly meal rotation. This small, locally owned chain has a few spots in the Alexandria area! They specialize in healthy acai bowls, smoothies, power bowls, cold-pressed juices, and toasts. This makes it perfect for a quick and healthy option any time of day.
In the morning, grab a Glow juice with pineapple, apple, aloe, fennel, lemon, and mint, and pair it with the banana toast with banana, almond butter, granola, raw honey, and cinnamon. For an afternoon lunch or pick-me-up, grab a Health Nut smoothie with almond milk, almond butter, banana, blueberries, mangoes, and agave, and pair it with Loaded Toast. The Loaded Toast comes with avocado oil, crushed red pepper, pink Himalayan salt, hemp hearts, organic cage-free hard-boiled egg, and microgreens. Any time of day is perfect for the bowl options, so if none of that speaks to you, a bowl is always a good idea! The combos are flavorful, fresh, and filled with nutrients that will help you power through the new year.
