Choosing to juice: Easy way to get the nutrients you need

We all thrive to be healthier in our day-to-day lives, but being in a constant rush doesn’t make things easy.  It’s hard making time to have a fruit salad instead of grabbing a bag of chips, or making a salmon dinner rather than grabbing a bag of fast food.  But, there are some things we can do make our health a priority – like juicing. Koinonia Juice Bar, located in Fayetteville, not only offers nutritious snacks but owner, Theresa Grosso, says people have the right to get answers and to be healthy,

“Most of the people that come in here have questions.  It’s not coming in, looking at a standard menu and saying ‘I’ll have this.’  They come in, they have goals with their health, ‘What should I have?’  And a lot of conversation happens; a lot of education.  So the people that work here are lifestyle coaches, so to speak,” Grosso said.

The people who work at Koinonia Juice Bar follow the juicing lifestyle and are well educated in nutrition.  They choose to juice because they can pack in a superfood diet in a fast and tasty way. In fact, if you put on a plate all the fruits and vegetables that go into one juice, you probably wouldn’t be able to eat all of it.

They also understand that different people choose juicing for different reasons because it’s so flexible, Grosso said.  Some choose to juice pre or post workout, some use it as a meal substitute; others find it a quick way to get a lot of nutrients.

Try juicing on your own!

Juicing is a natural way to restore the body.  Its nutrients gives us energy, supports the immune system, naturally detoxes our bodies, and are the building blocks of our cells.   Because juicing does all this, people see results.

“They feel more energy, less aches and pains, they might experience weight loss, less bloating… a variety of different things; clearer, sharper thinking, more steadying of their emotions,” Grosso said.
