Smoothie King co-founder Steve Kuhnaubegan mixing fruit, nutrients, and proteins in the late 1960s, in a successful attempt to assuage his own health conundrums. By 1973, he?d begun selling vitamins alongside his health-boosting concoctions, and soon, more than 600 Smoothie King locations were operating worldwide. Today, the shop?s patrons customize real apple, mango, and banana smoothies with sundry health-bolstering mix-ins. More than 70 blendable multi-vitamins, minerals, enzymes, nutrients, and amino acids fortify frosty smoothies, helping bodies to stay healthy or lift semi-trucks. Snacks such as veggie chips and high-protein cookies augment shakes in both health and deliciousness.
At each Tropical Smoothie Cafe location, healthy choices abound with drinks consisting of fresh fruit and snacks loaded with veggies and premium meats and cheeses. The caf??s colorful repertoire of smoothies runs the gamut from creamy, dessert-based indulgent creations to light and refreshing low-fat fruit options or frosty drinks boosted with supplements. Strawberries, bananas, and peaches mingle with exotic a?a? and goji berries to form mouthwatering concoctions designed to deliver health-boosting antioxidants, essential nutrients and laser-vision-inducing vitamins. Drinks pair with ciabatta and griddled flatbread during breakfast and lunch, as well as with made-to-order salads and a host of wraps and sandwiches.
Erica Motley weighed about 400 pounds when her doctor told her she was well on her way toward developing diabetes. The threat of disease?or worse?gave her the motivation she needed to drop 80 pounds and 16 percent body fat. This struggle also inspired her to become a licensed fitness instructor and to help others like herself through EM Creative Fitness and Wellness. Despite her success, Erica and her team of instructors work just as hard as their students to achieve their goals and lead each workout with an effervescent attitude.
The People's Perk is aptly named; the cozy coffee shop not only brings people together in a comfortable, cozy atmosphere, it also showcases the local art that makes Greensboro such a vibrant community. Visitors can enjoy the rich aroma of unique artisan coffees as they survey paintings and crafts by area artists and The People's Perk co-owners Nancy and Karen themselves. But just as Greensboro isn't all about coffee and art, neither is this cafe; it also serves local donuts and gluten-free baked goods.
