La Juiceria Superfoods, Verve Shops, Mont Kiara

Recently we have been indulging in lots of pre-Ramadan food to compile my "2017 Ramadan List". Eating food is what we at GoodyFoodies do best. Having said that, life is all about balance. La Juiceria invited us over to their Verve Shops, Mont Kiara outlet and the timing was perfect. We were more than willing to swap rendang and lemang to sample a few healthy options from the purveyors of superfoods.

Healthy eating need not be boring.  The menu at La Juiceria Superfoods comprises of All-day breakfast, Soups, Soba, Wraps & Pastas, Superbowls, Signature salads, as well as Build your own salad bowl. There will also be Smoothie bowls, their signature Cold-pressed juices, organic coffee, premium tea, and raw desserts.

I had the Beet Aid, which was really nice - great for increasing stamina and improving blood flow

My personal favorite is the Teriyaki Chicken Soba (RM18.90), a tasty bowl of charcoal soba noodles topped with tender and flavourful strips of teriyaki chicken, a runny kampung egg, seaweed and shoyu sesame dressing. Umami goodness in a bowl. I wouldn't mind eating this everyday.

Another must-try here is the Nasi Lemak Wrap (RM21.90), a healthy version of Malaysia's national dish. Instead of rice cooked in coconut milk, it is replaced with quinoa, and served alongside other "nasi lemak" condiments such as ikan bilis, peanuts, Japanese cucumber, kampung egg, and sambal as well as juicy grilled chicken thigh. Very enjoyable, and we both thought the tastes and flavours were pretty spot on and similar to nasi lemak.

For something light, you can try the Truffle Mushroom Soup (RM10.90), served with baguette.

The Superbowls are packed with healthy, nutritious ingredients. For instance, the Buddha Bowl (RM18.90) that we had comes with brown rice topped with roasted pumpkin, bell peppers, tofu, grilled mushrooms, French bean, pumpkin seeds, alfafa sprouts, caramelised cashew brittles, tortilla chips, and a Thai coconut red curry dressing which brings all the ingredients together nicely. Again, this was delicious and lots of nice textures in this one.

I never thought I'd say this, but you must definitely leave some room for the raw desserts from The Honest Treat. I've had some not-so-nice raw desserts in the past, but these were lovely. These raw desserts are free from dairy, egg, gluten and refined sugar. We adored the Banoffee (RM14.90) and Minty Chocolate (RM14.90).

End your meal with a cup of organic coffee - Hubby went for the Vatte (RM11), made using La Juiceria's Almond Mylk with double shot espresso... very nice and creamy. The coffees also come with a shot of chlorophyll water, which is said to energize and improve blood circulation.

For non-coffee drinkers, there is also tea... I had the Premium Chai Latte (RM14) which is handcrafted with fresh spices, and La Juiceria Almond Mylk.
