JugoFresh Opens in Boca’s Whole Foods

Being a Green Goddess in Boca is getting easier and easier as new organic stores pop up everywhere. Just earlier this month, we welcomed JugoFresh, an organic juice and raw food shop, in its new location inside Whole Foods Market on Glades Road.

Boca’s JugoFresh is offering over 40 juices, eight smoothies and three acai bowls, as well as raw oatmeal, granola and energy bars. All of the juices are organic and cold-pressed, but that may not be a novelty to you, as there are several juice cafes in the area. What makes JugoFresh’s assortment different are the following fab four menu items:

Protein oatmeal – If you are craving carbohydrates and don’t want to settle for anything less than awesome, reach for JugoFresh protein oatmeal. It is packed with superfoods such as lucama, hemp and mesquite that help release energy over time without causing sugar highs.

Homemade probiotic coconut yogurt add-on – Loaded with probiotic cultures that are very healing to the gut, coconut yogurt is also great for improving your immune system. I like to add it to my oatmeal and smoothies for an extra nutritional boost.

Medicinal mushroom add-on – Among my favorite superfoods are medicinal mushrooms like reishi and cordyceps because they help boost the immune system and support adrenals in times of stress. If you feel run down and overloaded with things to do this holiday season, then definitely add them to your smoothie.

Kale-cacao granola – It may sound like an oxymoron to mix kale and chocolate, but believe me, this is one delicious concoction. Nutrient-dense sprouted buckwheat granola is loaded with energy-boosting nutrients and is mixed with cacao, coconut nectar, almonds and kale. It is so sweet and crunchy that you won’t even taste kale. This is definitely great for those picky eaters!
