24 Carrots in Tempe: good food that’s good for you

I’m drinking a smoothie called “Berry Me Alive.” I didn’t realize how funny the name was until I said it out loud when I ordered it at 24 Carrots today. I’m a sucker for cute names for beverages, but I’m also a sucker for places that take extra steps to do things the right way. […]
