Q | What are the most popular items on your menu? Why?
A | The two most popular items on our menu are definitely the All Day Green Energy juice and the Acai bowl. All Day Green Energy is the healthiest juice on our menu, offering the highest nutritional value but lowest calorie count. You won’t find any sweetness in it as the ingredients are all green vegetables, plus lemon and ginger. The Acai bowl comes in a few ways, but they are all popular. It is a thick smoothie, served in a bowl and topped with healthy options such as fresh fruit, granola, cacao nibs or even peanut butter. While there are several ingredients that go into the blend, the acai berry is the star. It is an antioxidant packed super food with a laundry list of nutritional benefits.
Q | Are there any items NOT on your menu that are staff favorites (that you’d be willing to serve up to any customer who asked)?
A | One item that started as a special and quickly made its way to the menu is our Overnight Oats. While you won’t find it anywhere on our blackboard menu, it is available every day (as long as we don’t sell out). It is traditionally topped with strawberries and a range of other toppings, depending on what the customer is feeling. However it’s prepared, it serves as a quick and healthy snack or meal replacement that won’t leave you feeling guilty.
Q | What does a cleanse aim to achieve? Are there different kinds?
A | The purpose of a juice cleanse is to help rid the body of all the toxins we take in every day. There are many different styles of cleanses available on the market. At PurePressed we offer a Beginner cleanse or an Advanced option. Both include 6 16oz juices to consume per day, with the only difference being what juices are included. They both are offered in a 1-day or 3-day option.
Q | What are some tips for making the health benefits of juicing part of your New Years resolutions?
A | Juicing will definitely work wonders for your body, but only if you can make it a consistent part of your diet. By including juice in your daily routine it will leave you with more energy, feeling healthier, and even sleeping better. All in all it will pave the way for a healthier and happier lifestyle in 2016.
Q | You have different kinds of water (with interesting ingredients like alkaline and chlorophyll). How are these ingredients useful?
A | Alkaline is not an ingredient but rather a description for any water with a pH above 7.0. We achieve this by filtering our water with alkalizing stones which release highly absorbable minerals into the water. The benefit of alkaline water is that it helps neutralize the acid in your body, getting you to a more alkaline state.
