With fall in full swing, we love settling into spaces that are calm and cozy. Enter CRU’s Mount Royal location (816 16 Ave S.W.) full of perfect nooks to enjoy their super healthy menu options. If October has you feeling a refresh, CRU is the perfect pit stop for some clean eating options. Rest assured that whatever you choose to enjoy here is fresh, nutritious and does both your mind and body good.
With pumpkin season in full swing, orange is definitely the new green. We’re feeling it big time, and CRU’s joined the party with their seasonal raw shake. Pumpkin Spice ($12) is vegan and gluten-free, and blends cashews, almond butter, pumpkin and banana with powerhouse ingredients like maca and chia that will keep you energized all day long. If you’re looking for a PSL switch up, pick up a bottle of S1 a.k.a. Fall Guy. This mix of yam, carrot, apple and spices like cardamom and nutmeg feels like sipping autumn through a straw.
If chewing is more your thing, CRU has you covered. They’ve got delicious raw options like their Chia Bowl ($7) and energy bars ($4), and many more healthy meals. Stop by at lunchtime and grab a salad to-go: our top picks are Kale (we just can’t get enough) and the new Mediterannean Veggie Bowl.
CRU was born and raised in Calgary, and they’ve got lots of love for other locally grown businesses. A stop at CRU can also be a quick tour of other YYC faves – find earrings by Coutu Kitsch, wooden treasures from Camp & City and Playfield’s unique bracelets.
If your juice addiction is going strong, you’ll be happy to hear they’ve just launched their loyalty program. Keep stamping your juice card, and when you buy your 9th bottle, you’ll get one free. With Halloween around the corner and those totally tempting mini chocolate bars popping up everywhere, it’s the perfect time to stock up your fridge with fresh options from CRU.
