I am always looking for ways to invest in a healthier lifestyle. As I get older [and I like to say wiser] I am learning the importance of how taking care of my body should be a priority, “not just some of the time, but all of the time.”
“NOT JUST SOME OF THE TIME. NOT WHEN WE CAN. ALL OF THE TIME.”
I will be really transparent with you all, I don’t juice at home or have I ever. I have, of course, saved over a bajillion Pinterest recipes that I for some reason thought would encourage me to proceed with the healthier lifestyle… but that didn’t go as planned. When I saw that a Clean Juice was opening up near me, I was super pumped. I followed along with them on Instagram through the entire process of bringing something so important to the Naperville community. I was also relieved that I didn’t have to try to encourage myself to pick up another hobby + Juice at home [ haha ] or most importantly the time — I am sure so many of you can relate that “we” have enough on our plate to juggle. So, as soon as their doors opened — bam! There I was.
Gross, right?! Clean Juice believes in ORGANIC. It is the most efficient way to reduce exposure to chemicals and pesticides, avoid GMOs, and benefit from the higher nutrient content. It also can help to protect the water + soil and preserve our ecosystem. They are also the first and only USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise in the country + they pride themselves on serving the highest quality ingredients.
They also prep, press, bottle, and label all of their juices in house. I got to “help” when I visited! Okay, that’s a lie. But I did get a tour of the kitchen + got to check out the juicer in the back where all the action happens.
Their juices are customizable for any type of detoxing you need. They also have smoothies, açaí bowls, avocado toast + wellness shots. They are your one stop shop for organic goodness + perfect for any life style, whether it’s a refuel after a sweat session or a healthy treat for the family.
Clean Juice is a family owned company founded with the purpose of giving families access to clean, organic products while they are on the go. They currently have over 100 locations in development in 16 states! Learn more about Clean Juice® + how it all started, HERE.
