EAT! Food and Drink

Again.. Y’all KNOW I love local places that have paleo/gluten free options and I found one that’s literally 8 minutes down the road. A new hip spot called EAT! It’s in the lively shopping centers across from Flatirons Mall seated on the edge of Broomfield.

When you first walk in, you’re greeted by an industrial rustic vibe and friendly staff! The menu is full of classic brunch foods with unique twists, but don’t be fooled because they also provide health conscience items to meet your dietary needs!

They had amazing sweet potato fries and were able to provide us with gluten-free options for our burgers! *They had three different GF bread options, how awesome is that?!

Their drink menu also included some very unique recipes that were delicious additions to our brunch! (They grew the mint in house and used it for their drink infusions.. I love that!)

As amazing as the food and people were at the restaurant (Talking about you David and Alex!) the thing that really stood out to me was their amazing kid’s menu. It doubled as an activity booklet that used a PENNY as the writing utensil.. How eco-friendly is that! No waste, no chemicals.. Just a penny. I love it and I am hooked on that idea!

We’ll absolutely be back again – The hospitality and atmosphere makes you feel as though you’re in a hip downtown eatery but it’s in our own backyard and it’s super kid friendly! Thanks EAT!

Today, we decided to have some family also from Louisiana to come over and root for the LSU Tigers with us! So we wanted to have some good drinks to serve everyone that’s also paleo still! SO I just randomly came up with an idea for a drink and it came out amazing! Try it for yourselves and let me know what you thought or what you did differently ❥

Happy Leaf Kombucha

I have been obsessed with Kombucha for years now. It’s delicious, bubbly but also really healthy! (If made properly) So when I heard there was a local Kombucha tea brewery nearby I HAD to try it!

Hudson and I packed up and made the quick 20 minute drive down to Edgewater! We met up with my brother and his fiancé. It had such a beautiful and relaxed environment and the employees were very warm and inviting!

I started with their Flight of Five Kombucha which had their Cranberry Lavender, Grapefruit Citra, Orange Basil, Cranberry Punch and Hibiscus Lemon Ginger flavors.

Each one was absolutely delicious! My brother and his fiancé had never had kombucha so this was a great way for them to try out some in tons of different flavors (They’re now hooked! 😉 ) We liked them so much we had to get one of their growlers! I chose the Hibiscus Lemon Ginger flavor – It was amazing!! I loveee Ginger.

Hudson has been an eating MACHINE lately – So as soon as he started getting antsy I knew it was time for some grub! We ordered from their really healthy and great option menu! I got a basic chicken salad with their ginger peanut dressing, Hudson had a grilled cheese with apple slices, my brother ordered their chorizo tacos and his fiancé got their cheesewich sliders. Everything looked AND tasted amazing!

After looking around I saw some really amazing stuff on their walls; Yoga + Booch classes, a calendar with their events and a little area for Hudson to draw on in chalk – Just super cute and interactive. I love it!

It was a great place for Hudson to run around, for my family and I to spend some time together, for GREAT kombucha and food and just had an overall amazing atmosphere. I’ll definitely be back – Especially to have my growler refilled 😉 To end it.. When walking out I saw some blankets with a sign that said “Grab a Blanket – Have a picnic ☀” Such an awesome and creative idea, wish I would have seen it sooner! This place is definitely going to be a regular stop for us. Thanks Happy Leaf!
