2019 Best of the Boat vegetarian: Rootz

ROOTZ has rooted itself into local vegetarians’ hearts.

The eatery (and drinkery) blends up big business with fresh-pressed juices, smoothies, salads, grain bowls, paninis and more, all hand-designed by holistic health practitioner and former executive chef Fawn Racoma to “balance the body.”

Best sellers are its Mediterranean-inspired Medi-tate Bowl (cucumber, marinated onions, carrots, goat cheese, red peppers, grape tomatoes, sunflower seeds and spirulina pesto); and all-vegan Bhodi Tree Bowl, named after the tree Buddha sat under when he became enlightened.

You’ll be enlightened with its purple cabbage, celery, carrots, cucumber, pea chutes and raw almonds, all mixed together with miso ginger dressing. Most everything is raw, local and as fresh as possible.

“I want people to have the freedom to create what their body needs,” Racoma says.
