Juice Served Here Alka-Mizu

AdrianneHo_JohnFrieda_Leather-3AdrianneHo_JohnFrieda_Leather-5What’s all the fuss about alkaline…
SweatTheStyle_JuiceServedHere_AlkaMizuBy now many of us have heard of alkaline water. Some say it can help slow the aging process, regulate your body’s pH level, and prevent chronic diseases like cancer. But what exactly is alkaline water, and why all the hype?

Alkaline water helps balance the body’s pH, which tends to be acidic because of our high acid food diet, stress and exposure to environmental toxins such as smog. It’s also an amazing way to stay hydrated and energized! Alkaline water is also rich in alkalizing compounds, including calcium, silica, potassium, magnesium, and bicarbonate. This water can also act as an antioxidant, finding harmful free radicals and neutralizing them. Wanna give it a try? Grab a bottle of one of our favs from Juice Served Here to see the benefits it can bring to your everyday life!

Vegan Banana Bread

SweatTheStyle_VeganBananaBreadOrganic produce have a tendency to ripen fast. With our busy schedules we often run into the issue of not eating them in time and are forced to throw them away. When it comes to bananas, which are a great way to add manganese, fiber, biotin, and potassium to your diet, we have a great solution.

Vegan banana bread can be an awesome addition to your breakfast, a great afternoon snack, and even a nice treat after dinner. This moist and delicious bread will make you want to share this easy recipe with all of your friends and safe those over ripened bananas!

1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 very ripe medium bananas, mashed (about 1 1/4 cups)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup plain soy milk yogurt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom and two long sides of a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan with parchment, leaving a 2 inch overhang on each long side, and lightly coat with oil.

Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt together in a medium bowl. Whisk the bananas, sugar, yogurt, oil and vanilla together in another medium bowl. Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula until the batter just comes together (it’s okay if there are lumps). Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan and bake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes; tent the loaf with foil if it’s browning too quickly. Cool the loaf in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes, then lift it from the pan by the parchment overhangs and cool completely on the rack. Store the loaf in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

Burgerlords Vegan Burger

SweatTheStyle_BurgerLords-4In the cut of Chinatown lies one of LA’s best new burger joints. It’s one of those, “If you know, you know” spots that keeps its menu simple (three items to be exact), short, and to the point. On some Japan shit…
SweatTheStyle_BurgerLords-3Even when Chinatown’s Central Plaza is quiet you can expect to find a few skaters rocking Babylon and Bronze, LA cool kids, and foodies enjoying a quick bite from one of the city’s best kept secrets. SweatTheStyle_BurgerLords-6With only a takeout window, a few tables and chairs scattered about; Burgerlords is reminiscent of a classic American fast-food joint from the 50’s. But unlike the travesty of most modern chains, Burgerlords uses only high quality grass-fed beef and fry their french fries in rice bran oil.

Anouk Morgan

The Sweat The Style favorite is the mouth-watering vegan burger which rivals any other vegan burger on the market and most meat-based ones at that. Packed with delicious and nutritious ingredients: leeks, eggplant, mushrooms, garbanzo beans, celery, and spices. The patties are made fresh in-house every morning and topped with vegan American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and vegan thousand island.
SweatTheStyle_BurgerLords-2Although burgers and fries are not recommended on the regular, it’s good to satisfy your cravings once in a while. Remember balance is key. If you grew up loving fast food it’s okay to still indulge, just do your research and find places that use real ingredients and make their food from scratch. Eat what you love and give yourself another reason to sweat more during your next workout!
