Another health post! I’m sorry for the lack of variety – still figuring out what sort of order I want to put things in.
Kate was actually the one that turned me on to the Pressed Juicery. There is a little vendor in a nearby mall she took me to one day and I bought a juice and was hooked. It’s definitely giving in to a fad, but at least it’s a healthy fad, right?
As far as I can tell there are only free-standing locations in California, spanning both northern and southern parts of the state. However they do claim to have nationwide delivery, should you choose to purchase these (although I wouldn’t recommend it since you’ll want to taste them before making the commitment!). You can check out more on their locations on their website, pressedjuicery.com
Pressed Juicery’s philosophy is all about supplying the body with the most essential ingredients:
Our bodies require vital nutrients to function at their optimal levels.
Pressed Juicery provides a convenient way to meet those requirements.
It’s a pretty simple notion and I figured if it’s true, it won’t hurt. It’s also in line with a whole string of juiceries and bars popping up, especially here in California, all centered around the raw, organic diet.
I’m not currently trying to live off of a strictly juice diet, but I like incorporating these to my daily diet in order to add more liquids that aren’t water, and to increase more daily vitamins that I wouldn’t otherwise get.
I’ve got here in this post their Citrus 2 which is all just pineapple, apple, lemon, and mint, cold pressed juiced. There is nothing added in; no extra sugar, flavoring or coloring. You can definitely tell since it tastes much more green than a regular pineapple, apple, lemon, mint juice would taste if you bought it from any major brand for example. Actually, the strongest note in the juice would probably be the mint, then the pineapple. There’s an aftertaste of apple for sure. I’m not usually one that loves an overly green tasting juice (as opposed to a green smoothie, which tastes mostly like fruit, and I LOVE), or mint flavored beverages (never really liked mint tea) but this is the perfect mix of citrus with the mint to deliver a clean tasting juice. It’s not muddled with extra sugar, and none of the other notes in the juice try and compete with the mint.
Currently I like drinking one of these (specifically Citrus 2) with my breakfast. It’s energizing and hydrating! A good, refreshing start to the day.
I’ve tried other juices as well, but I’ll elaborate on them (in relation to Citrus 2) in future posts.
There’s also a new juice bar that has opened up in my town, so eventually I’m going to try them out 🙂 I’ll let you know how that goes!
