The Juicery Co. A new discovery in the ‘hood

February 12, 2014

Robert’s father was a naturopathic doctor. When I came down with this cold, R told me that his father would have ordered me in bed for two weeks on nothing but a fruit diet.
“But I can’t,” I said. “I’ve got too much to do!”

Now, I am a great believer that proper nutrition is the key to good health and Chloe has been making her smoothies lately and we’ve both seen an increase in energy, with the added bonus that this rotten little cold of mine has been beaten and sent packing.

So the other day, when we were at Whole Foods for lunch, the coffee bar was handing out samples of a carrot/ginger and a green juice; we grabbed one of each and gave them a try. (We thought that was a lovely coincidence because we were just talking about possibly getting another juicer for the house.)

Well, I hate to admit it, but to us these samples tasted absolutely horrible. (I guess we’re not as as juice savvy as we’d like to be.)

But yesterday we walked down to the ocean and back home to run some errands and C wanted to check out a new juice bar in the ‘hood not too far out of our way.

Oh lordy, I’m so glad we did.

This is Alex of The Juicery Co.

We walked into this lovely, warm space and Alex poured us a sample of the most delicious sprouted almond milk, fragrant with vanilla bean and cinnamon. Since C is lactose intolerant, we’re always looking for a lovely milk alternative and this one is heavenly.

Then Alex explained their zero waste policy of reusable cooler bags and returnable bottles. And they donate the left-over pulp to the local gardens for compost.

I bought a bottle of the almond milk and Chloe got a bottle of greens. And we enjoyed them to the max. If you’re in The Lower Mainland, then I encourage you to give them a try…and they have a delivery scheme.

We fully intend to be repeat offenders! 😀

    Oh my, I wish Chloe were here to make my husband and me smoothies. We both have the dreaded cold. He’s had his for 3 weeks, I’m just starting the 2nd week. I have increased my fruit intake, perhaps I need to do more! The Juicery Co. looks like a great place. Stay well!

      Oh no Christie! I just asked C and she said she’d happily come to Florida to make you some smoothies; especially if there’s sun and surf in it for her…lol. Do you take vitamin C? I find that up to 4000 mg per day cuts a cold to only two or three days. Hope you and husband get well soon. 🙂

    i did a juice cleanse and i loved it .. while mine was done with individually made for me juices, there are two organic juice shops in my area .. neither makes juice to order, both sell bottled juices that are made on the premises guaranteed fresh

      How did you ever manage? I keep thinking about it but feel like I would die on just juice and without my morning tea and toast…ok, marginal exaggeration there…but people say they feel a million times better after. Maybe I should go ahead.
