There was a time when Seaside, Florida was known as the town Jim Carrey made famous in the movie The Truman Show. But these days, people might instead say, “You know, it’s the little resort town with all the Airstream food trucks.”  True enough. But those who pass by the barbecue and hot dog hawkers will be rewarded with fresh, raw juice, smoothies, gluten free sandwiches, sophisticated lunches and packaged vegan treats worthy of any movie star or health-conscious vacationer.  The Raw and Juicy Airstream has been keeping it real at the corner of the town’s amphitheater along Scenic Highway 30A for years, and it never disappoints.

Well, okay. It might at first seem a little disappointing to hand over $8 for a Green Goddess juice, but that’s only until you go home and try to blend your own concoction of organic, locally grown kale, celery, cucumber, apple, lemon and parsley.  Afterwards, you not only will be grateful to buy these invigorating, unpasteurized, unprocessed sips of health; you will probably want to do it as often as possible.

At lunchtime, grab and outdoor, people-watching seat and try one of Raw and Juicy’s raw squash spiral “pastas,” or my favorite, the hearty Veggie Sandwich ($12) served on gluten free raw onion bread piled hight with avocado, cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, sprouts and zesty raw mustard.  Add some spicy flax chips or organic kale salad, or finish with one of Raw and Juicy’s signature popsicles. Flavors change regularly. We like frozen watermelon or creamy avocado cacao. Dairy-free popsicles are the perfect anytime cool down for a bike ride around the town or across the street to the beach.

Raw and Juicy options sometimes change according to what’s in season. And Owner/Ayurvedic Consultant Jenifer Kuntz should know, she helped found the Seaside Farmers Market as a natural Saturday extension of her healthy food offerings to the community. This summer Kuntz also expanded to offer easily packaged products, like the so-great-I’ve-tried-and-failed-to-make-them-myself Raw Ginger Cacoa Macaroons and her locally famous granola to and offsite location, Raw and Juicy on the Go in Seaside, Florida.
