I was not exactly in the mood for a juice cleanse when I was contacted a couple of weeks ago (What can I say, chewing is fun!); however, when I scanned Urban Remedy’s shop, I quickly learned that strict juice cleanses is not what they are all about.
Whether it is beating a sugar addiction, integrating more fresh meals, or committing to cleanse and reset, Urban Remedy wants to help people make their lives a little healthier; the company views food as healing – yes, yes, yes!
I picked mostly leafy green juices with a couple bright, root vegetable-based beverages for a twist; overall, I loved my tasting experience. I especially enjoyed the juices with ginger and mint (like Flush and Support).
I am a big fan of their website feature that describes the health benefits of each ingredient in the varying juices… as is of interest to most consumers of raw, fresh juice. For example, the benefits of burdock root or turmeric are clearly explained in layman’s terms – no more organic chemistry, even for this Nutrition Nut.
In addition to a rainbow of fruit and vegetable beverages, Urban Remedy also sells cold brewed coffee (!), nut milks (mmm), and herbal boosts.
Why I am personally a fan of Urban Remedy:
- It’s USDA Organic – a must for me when it comes to fresh juice
- The produce is sources from local farmers who practice organic, sustainable farming methods
- It’s cold-pressed
- Their simple philosophy: food is medicine
