Purple Sprout Offers Much More Than Fresh Juices

Irina Kuznetsova, Karim Raimbekov & family

The Purple Sprout Café and Juice Bar, which opened in November, serves an organic, vegan menu of cooked and raw foods, juices, smoothies, elixirs, bakery goods and raw desserts. They use no sugar, refined grains and flours, corn and other GMO products, artificial preservatives, artificial colorings or nightshades. The café also serves plant-based crepes, burgers, burritos, dumplings and kebabs.

The Purple Sprout chefs and co-owners Irina Kuznetsova and Karim Raimbekov offer cooking classes, nutritional and lifestyle consultations and ayurvedic assessments and recommendations. They say, “We look at the food from the standpoint of nutrients, energetic composition and potency and seasonality. For example, our Super Immunity shot, consisting of masticated wheatgrass and elixir from horseradish, ginger and other astringent roots, is good for jumpstarting the immunity into gear.”
