If you are looking for a 100% plant based and certified organic restaurant, Fruitive is the place for you! They are the first restaurant in Southeast Virginia to receive a 3-star certification by the Green Restaurant Association. Fruitive is all dairy free and they have gluten free items as well. Their pantry only consists of fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices; all from the best local farmers and organic suppliers. These suppliers consist of New Earth Farm, Mark Shean, Mattawoman Creek Farm, Dave and Dee’s Homegrown Mushrooms, Heinz Farm and The Juicebox Camper.
Fruitive offers something for every customer, from smoothies (also known as “liquid meals”) to full meals. The type of items that they offer are salads, wraps, sandwiches, smoothies “liquid meals”, juices, super berry bowls, some breakfast items, granola, kale chips, vegan cheesecake (when available) and more. Fruitive keeps their signature items year round but will offer seasonal items throughout the year. For example, when the weather is cold and you’re craving something warm but also want the goodness of a raw and nutrient-dense dish, you will love a pour-over soup (part salad, part soup). When the weather is warm and you want to enjoy something sweet and refreshing, you can sit on their outdoor furniture and eat a delicious Berry Basil Salad. Some suggested favorite items on the menu would be the Collard Wrap, the Tuscan Kale Grilled Wrap, the Southwest Grilled Wrap, the Cacao Pow Smoothie, the Wellness Warrior and the Kalevolution Juice.
Be sure to check out Fruitive for a great nutrient-dense meal! Their closest location is at 1624 Laskin Road in Virginia Beach, open Monday through Saturday from 7:00am-7:00pm and closed on Sundays. Their second location is located in Washington D.C. and if you live closer to Norfolk, you are lucky since they just opened another Fruitive there in March 2017!
