Austin Juice Bars Promote Green Goodness
published on January 17, 2012
Eating all the greens on a plate may have gotten easier since the onset of adulthood, but it can still be challenging to get the proper portions of fruits and vegetables every day as a busy grown-up. The obvious thoughts for meeting a green quota are salads and smoothies, but sometimes salads just aren’t convenient or filling, and smoothies often come packed with sugar and artificial syrups.
Juicing is nothing new to health-conscious Austinites or fans of Jack Lalanne, but popular documentaries like Fat Sick & Nearly Dead and Forks Over Knives have recently brought the power of produce to the forefront of many more minds. Luckily for residents interested in the health benefits and delicious flavors afforded by juice, Austin is known for more bars than the ones found on 6th street. Juice bars are located throughout the city, providing fresh pressed juices that come pre-packed with all the vitamins and minerals of an entire produce aisle.
Below are a few of the juice bars located in Austin:
Booster Juice is a juice and smoothie bar dedicated to providing a premium smoothie experience.The stores and products are energetic, fun, natural, and downright addictive – perfect for today’s active lifestyles.It’s this winning combination that has helped Booster Juice grow to 300 stores worldwide in just 12 years, with a presence in Austin to serve locals thirsty for a satiating treat.
Born in 2003 of the fresh, cool spring waters of Barton Springs, deep in the heart of Austin, Daily Juice is freshly squeezed year round.
