Juicing provides a big nutritional bang of vital nutrients and enzymes in a fast and easy way. As with everything we serve, our juices are made with only the freshest and highest quality ingredients, local and organic when possible.” Cost: $8 for a 16 ounce drink.

Why should one juice?
1. Your digestive system will thank you. Juicing proponents believe that your digestive system can function more efficiently when drinking raw vegetables. Although you lose the benefits of consuming fiber when drinking your produce, it takes less energy to digest food in liquid form. Heating and cooking vegetables also reduces or destroys some of their enzyme content, which some say can impede digestion. With juicing, it’s believed that these food enzymes are not only preserved, but your digestive system also gets a “rest.”
2. Juicing helps absorb vitamins and nutrients fast. “I see juicing as an easy, delicious way to get a big bowl of vegetables, fast,” says Seattle-based nutritionist Cherie Calbom, MS, author of several books on the subject, including ‘The Juice Lady’s Turbo Diet’ (Siloam, 2010). “It’s fast food on the go that can also help prevent disease. Juice enables drinkers to gain the benefits of pounds of vegetables just by drinking a single cup.”
