I used to be a big smoothie maker. I would even prepare one for my husband each night for him to blend up in the morning.
I wish I could say that’s what happened this morning—or any morning this month—but it didn’t.
Life has gotten busier and I tend to deplete my energy levels in the morning trying to make Ivy something nutritious. Then I grab the half-a-bagel that’s been sitting in the fridge since Monday.
So when I want quick nutrition that I can feel really good about, I head to Juice Press. Like many other establishments, they're offering organic, cold-pressed juices (for a pretty penny, of course).
Cold-pressed is a big deal because unlike a lot of the juice in the supermarket, these cold-pressed juices retain a ton more nutrients.
However, you do pay for it...
These juices are $10.99—a price that can be hard to swallow (pun intended)!
But it sure makes me feel like I’ve had a good eating day even when the only solid things that have touched my lips are that two-day-old bagel and a cheese stick.
So to stretch it a little, I tend to mix their more aggressively green juices (the ones that taste like Sh*t) with some OJ or cranberry juice and finish the bottle over three days or so.
You don’t want your pricey juice to sit in the fridge too long; it’s not very shelf-stable and will go bad more quickly than other juices.
In the end, I spent $16 on a juice and kale chips (I LOVE their kale chips).
But I guess our health is what we should be spending money on, right?!
