In the past, Beaming juices and salads were a cult hit for those in the know, but the secret is out now that the very first bBar is open in Del Mar. Don’t let the concept of a juice and superfood bar fool you into thinking the food won’t satisfy your soul. My 6-year-old thought her Beaming Basic raw cacao and almond milk smoothie was a chocolate milkshake. No joke. bBar is about to enter your eating ritual and reassure the skeptical that healthy food is not only delicious but it makes you feel better.
The the motto behind Beaming, the company behind bBar, is that you glow from within if you live healthy. And, a healthy diet is not about deprivation, but rather moderation and balance. With it’s clean, contemporary interior, bBar is one of those places where you feel good the second after stepping inside and instantly motivated to change unsavory eating habits.
Walk in the door. Once at the counter, to the right is a gigantic smoothie menu above a refrigerated display case full of salads and other to-go items. To the left, another refrigerated display case heaves with pre-packaged juices, smoothies, soups, salads and snacks to grab. Dine in at bBar after paying or take it all home. They have refrigerated bags if you need one.
Ask for help, if you aren’t sure what to order. Each bBar staff member is thoroughly educated regarding ingredients in each products and nutritional benefits. More importantly, they’ll tell you what each item tastes like so that you can decide which of the several green juices to pick or salad to take home.
Speaking of the juice, it’s cold-pressed hydraulic juice which means it retains more nutrients and enzymes and can lasts up to 5 days. This is a special process that you don’t find at a standard juice bar or in grocery store juices. All Beaming fruits and vegetables are organic, too.
Note that Beaming has a proprietary, organic and plant-based superfood blends that are incorporated into some menu items.
If you have a sweet tooth, substitute a cookie for a Beaming Protein Bite. Fans are raving about them. Beaming uses coconut flour, almond butter, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, Beaming Protein, lucuma, goji berries and coconut sugar in each Beaming Protein Bite. Yes, it’s delicious.
Try the Kale Caesar Salad. The salad itself is tossed, de-stemmed curly kale, goji berries, shaved fennel and hemp seeds. Toss it with Beaming Cashew Sauce, which is cashews, herbs, lemon, raw honey, onion flakes and garlic, for a lunch your body will thank you for.
The Mojo Maca smoothie (to-go) is a blend of sprouted almond milk, coconut water, blueberry, banana, spinach, Beaming Protein, Irish moss, maca, almond butter and vanilla that makes a perfect breakfast.
Forget the difficult juice cleanses that leave you weak and hungry. Beaming believes cleansing reboots your system and offers several cleanse options that eliminate the deprivation feeling because you can chew salad and eat soup with juice in between. Plus, Beaming tastes better than the competition.
