Meet the Sullivans: Sunshine in a Glass

May 21, 2014

Sunshine in a Glass

We recently had the pleasure of getting to try some of Whole Foods Market's “Made Right Here” Juices with Amazing Grass! Their made-in-house juices get an extra boost this month from Amazing Grass Organic Green SuperFoods, and include fun flavors like Eye Opener, Triple Threat, and Kale Yeah! 



What we really like about these juices are that you can have them along with your lunch or before a workout for an extra boost of energy and the vitamins that you'd otherwise be unable to get from coffee or energy drinks. All without the full feeling of a smoothie.

The juices are made fresh early every morning and packaged up for you to grab and go. Each season the juices offered will change as the seasonal produce changes.

Right now these are the juices available at the San Mateo Whole Foods:



We sampled and enjoyed the freshness of them all! The Eye Opener is my favorite so far!

Owen's very favorite was the Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice (which they always have on hand)! Owen said it was so "yummy, yummy in my tummy!!" You can buy the Orange Juice ready to go OR go use the nifty Willy Wonka style machine for yourself to squeeze your own juice. The sweet lady at Whole Foods told me that once I tried their freshly squeezed OJ I would never buy the pre-packaged stuff again and she's right! It's the most amazing thing I have ever tasted. I know this sounds corny but it was like drinking straight sunshine from a cup!


In this short video you can see how neat the juice machine is. Owen loves helping me fill the bottles with Orange Juice! It has become a fun activity for us to do together when we visit Whole Foods.



I'd also like to point out for any local parents some of the other fun things to do in the Bay Meadows area:

Play at Paddock Park - a new fully-enclosed park in the community with a sandbox, bathrooms, two play structures, swings and a rope climbing structure.

MomDays (and dog days too)! - every Monday 3-5pm join the Bay Meadows community at Paddock Park for family-friendly shenanigans – live music, puppet shows, crafts – the events change monthly. Events for June will be added this week.

Park Place Fountain Stream - a fun place to let the kids splash around on a warm day! Located in front of Crunch Fitness. Be sure to bring a towel and a change of clothes!

You can also follow the San Mateo Whole Foods on Instagram and Bay Meadows on Instagram and Facebook for updates.

Our perfect little Monday? Cold juice from Whole Foods, time to splash around in the water and maybe even a stop to see what's happening over at Paddock Park for Momdays!

The Whole Foods Market's “Made Right Here” Juices with Amazing Grass obviously got this mama's (and Owen's) seal of approval! I was not compensated for this review, but we did receive the juices for free to review. All opinions expressed here are my own, as is my love for the fresh juices!

Those look so fresh and delicious. I have to start drinking more of these juices. I try making them at hope, eh... I am always "too busy" a.k.a. to lazy sometimes. Need to make a stop at Wholefoods soon.
