Zoe: Clean Eating in Mercato Testaccio

zoe fresh juice in Rome

I like to eat balanced meals.

For example, I like to balance out all my carbs with a lot of fat. (I recommend pasta alla gricia for this).

Or, I like to balance out my dinner with a spot of gelato.

I will even balance out my meat with a side of potatoes.

Balance is everything.

Eventually, between the cheese and cured meats, I will occasionally admit that I could really go for a kale smoothie.

Zoe a Mercato Testaccio

On those days, I drag myself downstairs to Nuovo Mercato Testaccio, and slowly walk by Mordi e Vai, to stop at Zoe’s for lunch.

Ok. I do love gricia, but I also love me some fresh fruit and veg.

Zoe specializes in estratti – fresh juice.

Beetroot? Bieta? No problem.

Ginger? Naturally.

Whatever you want, they will juice.

The fresh pressed juices are amazing, but the lunch specials are even better.
