Spring is here! Now, if only the weather would agree. Nevertheless, it's time for a fresh start. While sprucing up your house and updating your Spring wardrobe is definitely a start to a great season, cleaning up your diet can also prove to be very beneficial.
The whole clean eating craze has gotten me interested in juicing. I'm always so intrigued by the combinations of flavors and the gorgeous colors that come from 100% natural ingredients. Not to mention, fresh juices are packed with tons of vitamins and minerals each meant to trigger and focus on different health ailments and issues. Juice places have been popping up all over Pittsburgh like little apothecaries waiting to mix up a potion just for you to help your body. So where's a good place to get a fresh juice around here? Here are 5 places in Pittsburgh to find one of these delicious concoctions.
This place alone can help transform you into a bonafide health guru! Their menu includes organic smoothies, juices and shots, all serving a specific purpose, like their "Happy" smoothie or "Radiant" juice, and their shots not only include the standard wheat grass but you can get a shot of apple cider vinegar or wild harvested algae. Located in Lawrenceville, Embody also provides health coaching, private yoga lessons, detox programs, cleanses, and fun informational happy hours.
This family owned Lawrenceville business aims to keep their juice alive! And by that, they mean the freshest juices possible. Their theory is that the enzymatic and nutritional value of the juice is lost when it's been processed through high heat or pressure. Their cold pressed juices are made fresh everyday. They also provide juicing programs fit for anyone whether you are a beginner or a juicing expert.
Another family owned business, Fresh Farm Juices presses and bottles their own juice. The farms providing the fruit for the juices are all located in Western PA. They distribute their juices to several locations in the city, but they are based in the South Side. They provide seven flavors that are perfect for specific times of the day. And they also provide 2 day, 4 day and 6 day juice cleanses.
Located in Highland Park, Juice Up 412, aims to get the people Pittsburgh thinking and eating healthier. Owner, Majestic Lane, believes in educating people on the importance of juicing. Their signature flavor Orange Sunrise (a delicious combination of orange, carrot and lemon) is so good you can even get the kids on board with it.
