While I don’t believe in living entirely off of juice (it’s expensive and you need more protein!) it is quite lovely to have a fresh juice as a pick-me-up instead of coffee once in a while.
Today I stopped by Urban Remedy in San Rafael to satisfy my juice (and chocolate) craving. I picked up Beam: a carrot, dandelion greens, burdock root and jewel yam blend. It tastes grounding, earthy, tangy and touts 1160% of my daily Vitamin A requirement.
Already preparing for my next impending chocolate craving, I also picked up a raw cacao mousse cup. It’s made with raw cacao, almond milk, dates, agave, and vanilla and tastes like absolute heaven.
Neka Pasquale, founder of Urban Remedy, believes that food is medicine, and spent many years in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture before launching Urban Remedy in April of 2013. I completely agree with her philosophy, and head over to Urban Remedy whenever I need healing food or juice. They carry a few raw salad items and have a rotating supply of raw vegan desserts in the refrigerated case in addition to the rainbow of juices. Everything is organic and sustainable and tastes as fresh as possible, because it is. The names are cheeky and cute, while the back labels make sure to inform you of the various health benefits you will soon be partaking in.
Other favorites of mine include After Party (sweet and beety and good for hangovers) and Support, a green juice with apple, ginger, and fennel.
