Oct 20, 2020

Healthy eating is a lifestyle choice that’s extremely popular in Mammoth Lakes. After all, when you put in a full day biking, hiking, skiing or fishing in this alpine paradise, the last thing many people want to do is ruin the effects of all that wonderful exercise. Restaurants here have risen to the challenge and now offer a wide variety of healthy options that will keep you feeling strong and looking good.

Elixir Superfood and Juice

Elixir Superfood and Juice believes that they can make the community a better and happier place by producing healthy fuel that nourishes the body, fulfills the soul and treads lightly on the planet. To that end, they make some of the most incredible juices and elixirs you’ll ever taste. Using organic and local ingredients whenever possible, their menu also features many vegetarian options. Try the Backcountry Warrior, made with almond butter, bananas, coconut milk, dates, kale, honey and bee pollen. Or taste a shot of Relief, composed of carrot, turmeric root, lemon and black pepper. If you’re looking for something to eat with all this liquid goodness, order one of their popular grains or greens bowls. You can choose the toppings and dressings for a personalized treat your body will thank you for.
