Midtown Blue, Sun & Soil Juice Company
It’s Monday. I’m busy. Emails are sent and meetings are scheduled, but it’s noon and I’ve yet to eat. Stepping into Sun & Soil Juice Company is a nice reprieve from the summer heat with a plant collection that freshens the air. Hunger meter: code red, so I order the Midtown Blue, one of eight fancy smoothies ($10). The dark-purple blend of coconut and cashew milk, kale, blueberries, dates, chia seeds, lemon and vanilla produces deliciously subdued flavors, but not fruit-forward or too sugary. As I finish the thick, silky smoothie I’m satisfied with this healthy start to the week. 1912 P Street, sunandsoiljuice.com.
