Every time I sit down to write this post I get too damn thirsty for one of Green Plows glorious concoctions and walk away bound and determined to come back and NOT be thirsty to write the post. Well, after 3 attempts, I guess I’ll just have to suffer through and be thirsty to finish off the post. #FirstWorldProblems
Anyhow, The Green Plow Juicery has been around Eugene now for about 2 years – but I just noticed it the other day while making an emergency stop at The Friendly Street Market for some 6 year old approved snacks. Needless to say, I was pretty stoked to see it across the street from the market on Friendly St. (almost at 28th, next to J-Tea). The “fresh juice” scene in Eugene is oddly small for such a hippy/yoga/good vibes-centric town such as Eugene (I really wish Eugene would open a Prasad like place). There’s New Odyssey over off of Willamette St., but that’s pretty much it (at least that I’m aware of). And while I’m far from being the doing-yoga-drinking-wheatgrass kinda gal, I AM after all, a half-assed vegan that loves smoothies and fresh juices.
To round out the whole package, all of Green Plow’s juices and smoothies are 100% organic. Now, I feel like this should be a “duh” statement, but you’d be surprised how many juicing joints use conventional produce. Ew, right? Juices and smoothies are supposed to be nourishing and nutritional, not bursting with pesticides (not to mention the poor working conditions for workers associated with conventional produce – ugh). So, super kudos to them for keeping their juices and smoothies free of crap I don’t want to think about!
I’m super stoked to have stumbled upon their juice cart – it has already become a regular stop when I’m in the area; for me, for my husband, and for the 6 year old who loves berry smoothies!
My next “plan” is to do a Friendly Street crawl that includes: Green Plow, J-Tea, and lunch at Tam’s Place (because she seriously has the best wings and phó in town!).
So yeah, if you’re in the mood to be nourished AND enjoy a tasty beverage check them out and check out their Facebook page for details and what-not.
…and lastly, here are a bunch of images of the menu boards:
