Keep those Resolutions! 3. Juice Bars
The chiming in of a New Year means resolutions. Drinking less, eating healthily, and exercising more, are usually high on the agenda. This January, in a series of posts, we are exploring the healthy eateries, juice bars and gyms to visit during your stay in the capital. Perfect if you are visiting London in 2016 and don’t want to break your resolutions…
The restaurants and juice bars below are top destinations for those looking for a vitamin-infused pick-me-up or juice cleanse in London.
Cold pressed juices are all the rage – a method of juicing which ensures no heat is applied during the process. A hydraulic press “squashes” the fruit and vegetables. With no heat; no nutrients are damaged or wasted. Consequently, these juices contain significantly higher nutrients and antioxidants then other juices.
Top tip: it is recommended to drink a juice after eating. By combining the vitamins and nutrients of the juice with food containing fibre you will get more benefits than from drinking the juice alone.
Be warned these juices are rather expensive with large quantities of organic fruit and vegetables going into every bottle. The following Huffington Post article explains the hefty pricetag on coldpress juices
