Pure Food and Juice
You don’t have to wait until January to detox from the richness of the holidays.
Whether you want to do a one-day juice fast or start adding more plant-based foods to your diet, Pure Food and Juice, 3524 S. Peoria Ave., is a good place to start.
Owner Cynthia Beavers’ seasonal menu includes a green chile poblano chowder with crusty French baguette bread and pesto — the perfect take-out food after a long work day. Or dine in at Pure, where they have much more than juices and smoothies. Pure has plant-based dishes of Mexican, Italian and Asian influences; desserts; fresh pressed juices; espresso; smoothie blends; organic wine; beer and handcrafted cocktails.
As for that chowder, it’s made with chiles, corn and sweet potatoes in a creamy broth. It tastes more guilty pleasure than health food.
“Our motto is we make really healthy food but make it taste really unhealthy,” Beavers says.
