FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Everyday, our bodies are bombarded with all sorts of toxins, one of the most prevalent being non-organic food. Pesticides used to grow and treat non-organic fruit and vegetables find their way into our bodies, potentially wreaking havoc on our health. In addition, many in the science community believe that organic fruits and vegetables taste better and have a higher nutritional content. We can’t control or eliminate many of the environmental toxins we are exposed to, but we can control what we feed ourselves most of the time. So, choose organic whenever possible!
What is cold-pressed juice?
Cold-pressed juice is made with a hydraulic press that exerts thousands of pounds of pressure to extract the maximum amount of nectar from the pulp and fiber. Because there is little to no pulp in the juice, it is easily digested and quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. This method also yields the maximum amount of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes in each bottle of juice.
Why glass bottles?
We serve our 16 ounce juices in recyclable glass bottles. They are more expensive for us to purchase and maintain, but better for the environment. We do put a minimal deposit on them in order to encourage their return to us for future use.
Why should I do a juice cleanse?
Just like a car needs regular maintenance (oil and filter change), so do our bodies. Stress, lifestyle, diet, medications, etc. all affect the way we function both physically and mentally. A short, organic* juice cleanse gives our bodies the chance to reset and recharge through the infusion of raw, nutrient-dense juices and almond mylks. Do not think of a juice fast as depriving yourself of food; you are actually flooding yourself with amazing nutrition while keeping out things that might not be so good for you
*Fuel for thought: Doing a non-organic juice cleanse is like changing the oil in your car and replacing it with used oil. So make sure it’s organic!
What is nutrient-dense food?
Nutrient-dense foods give you the most nutrients for the fewest amount of calories. In other words, you get lots of nutrients without a lot of calories. Pretty neat. Fruits, vegetables, and superfoods are examples of nutrient-dense foods.
What makes food, “Superfood”?
Superfoods are nutrient powerhouses that pack large doses of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals.
