I am so excited to tell you about a new restaurant that has just opened in Birmingham, AL called Blueroot Co. The founder Jennifer Ryan is originally from California and grew up around good nutrient-rich foods.
Last year I met Jennifer at MPower and she told me about her dream of bringing whole food real food nutritious meals on the go to Birmingham. I was so excited because I knew we needed a place like this.
Blueroot Co. menu is a seasonal love fest of the freshest ingredients available and showcases the best our local farmers have to offer.
As I have traveled to NYC, Chicago, LA, and even Kansas City, I have seen so many wonderful places like this and have felt like Birmingham was missing out. In Birmingham, we have delicious fine dining, great shopping, but we are lacking when it comes to quick nutrient-rich foods on the go.
Following your dream and opening a new business can be scary. I still remember when I followed my dream and I opened my Pure Barre studio. I love how Jennifer has decided to go for it! She recently brought me a goody box with some of her favorites.
What’s in the box?
two of our favorite salads – The Farmstand and the Greek Freekeh
house-made Triple Pepper Relish (the kitchen staple you didn’t know you needed)
our not-so-boring Plain Jane Oats
our signature Naked Eggs with roasted local vegetables
an assortment of honey nut and salted dark chocolate Energy Bites to fuel you post-workout or on-the-go
a few healthier options to satiate your sweet tooth with Cashew Butter Cookies and Not Your Mama’s Rice Crispy Treat
Let’s just say I LOVED all of it!! It didn’t take me any time to eat EVERYTHING. I think I probably shouldn’t have eaten ALL of the energy bites in one sitting but I couldn’t help myself. The Plain Jane Oats are anything but plain.
Ok, so I know you are wondering how can you get this awesome food? You will find them at local farmers markets as well as pop-ups around town. This Saturday they will be at Practice Works. Later this year they will be opening a brick and mortar but until then follow them on Instagram to see where their next pop-up will be.
On FASTer Way to Fat Loss, we focus on whole food nutrition and Blueroot is the perfect fit for my lifestyle!
