At Carine’s Bridal Atelier, we love food, and we love to eat. That’s why we’re always looking for places that are delicious and good for you. Enter Fruitive, our new favorite go-to healthy place. The menu is 100% plant-based and 100% certified organic. In fact, Fruitive is the first certified organic fast casual restaurant in North America; they have three restaurants in Virginia and one in D.C. What’s unique about Fruitive is that each of their locations has a different menu. We ordered lunch into our store the other day from the CityCenter DC location (we tried the Avocado Herb Toast, Avo Cucumber Sandwich, Protein Power Salad and Hail to the Kale Salad) and wished that we had tried more! Everything was amazing. If you aren’t sold on trying Fruitive yet, keep scrolling – we promise you won’t be disappointed.

Every season, we at Carine’s Bridal Atelier look forward to attending Bridal Fashion Week in New York. It’s amazing to be able see all the designers and their incredible shows. One thing we always love doing is spotting trends in the new collections. When you spend all day around wedding dresses, you get excited to see new ideas – especially when you can start visualizing different types of brides in them. A trend that was all over the runway this season was high necklines. While there were some that were simple bateau necks, we noticed that a lot of designers played around with the traditionally conservative look, adding lace, beading, and cut-outs. Below are some of our favorite high-necked dresses from this season:

Let’s face it – most of us have tried to lose weight before a big event at some point in our lives. Between juice cleanses, gluten-free/dairy-free detoxes, and the ‘bone broth only’ diet, things can get pretty chaotic.

Here at Carine’s Bridal Atelier, we believe that in order to look and feel your best, you have to take care of yourself on the inside and out. What you put into your body not only affects how you look, but can also impact things such as your energy levels and metabolism. And while it can be tempting to try a crash diet, the best way to do this is lead a consistently healthy lifestyle.

One of our favorite places to go when we want something healthy – and yummy – is South Block Juice Co. Located on Grace Street in Georgetown, South Block Juice Co. has an amazing selection of healthy foods such as açai bowls, pressed juices, smoothies and snacks.  Need some help deciding? Below are some of our favorite items:

PB & J Açai Bowl: This smoothie bowl is an incredible blend of açai, peanut butter, bananas, blueberries, and almond milk topped with granola, blueberries and bananas. For extra protein to keep us full, we like to add hemp hearts and a scoop of plant protein powder.

Super Green Smoothie: On the days where we need to eat some greens but don’t feel like ordering a salad, we usually opt for the super green smoothie. It’s made with pineapple juice, kale, spinach, mangos and bananas. The fruit cuts through the taste of the spinach and kale, so even though it looks green, it tastes just like a tropical drink.

Avocado Toast: A classic, but one that is exceptionally good at South Block Co. Something we love to do is add bee pollen on top – it might sound weird, but it compliments the avocado and is great for added nutrition.
