While Alphabet City may not conjure up images of health lifestyles (all those bars; all those diners), the gourmet store Live Live Organic fights the trend towards gluttony and gastric bypass. Stocked with organic and "live" (minimal-processing and low-heat) treatments, beauty products, water ionizers, and supplements, this East Village spot furthers its mission by selling the juicers, dehydrators, and blenders needed to support a raw-food diet. Instructional diet books and DVDs are available, as are nutritional consultations for Manhattanites in need of a serious detox. If indulge you must, healthy treats like a pineapple-nut bar and a lemon-walnut cookie can be had for a price.
