When it comes to living healthily, juice is something that is relatively new to me.
An easy way to get your 'Five a Day' in one fell swoop, juice is a great on-the-go breakfast and feels extra good after a morning work out.
Health brand and organic juice company Roots & Bulbs opened earlier this year in Marylebone. The shop sells green juices varying in sweetness, smoothies filled with super-food ingredients for nutritious and tasty liquid snacks - simple, honest and fulfilling healthy foods.
Sarah Cadji (the founder of London’s newest, healthy takeaway, Roots & Bulbs) is on a mission to revolutionise how and what we eat on a daily basis. Here’s to more greens and goodness in London.
What does healthy mean to Roots & Bulbs? Healthy for us means using the best organic ingredients that make tasty and fulfilling juices, smoothies and food, so that our customers can enjoy them on the go. It also means buying food that is uncomplicated, accessible and feels cool!
What motivated you to start Roots & Bulbs? The reason I feel so passionate about it is because I have seen my life completely change by the food choices I have made. This gave me a deep inspiration to create a ripple effect for others that work hard and have very little time to cook, juice or make smoothies. The fact that there was nothing in London that I could call “home food" pushed me over the edge and I started working on this project two years ago.
What sets Roots & Bulbs apart from what’s out there? We offer our customers the combination of two things that we feel are different to anywhere else. The fact that we make incredibly healthy organic juices, smoothies and food combined with the convenience of getting it on the go, is what we think customers will appreciate.
