Last year Mt. P. got a healthy dose of yummy goodness with the opening of Blend Juice Bar. Located in the same complex as Barre Evolution, Mt. Pleasant Pilates, and Jivamukti Yoga, this juice bar is smack dab in the center of Coleman Boulevard’s healthiest strip mall. Nowhere else can you take a shot and feel good about it — that’s because these shots include things like wheatgrass and tiger’s blood (beet, carrot, ginger). Line ’em up! You can build your own juice or smoothie, or enjoy one of Blend’s concoctions. They make being healthy easy with their helpful description of each ingredient’s benefits. Cayenne is a metabolism booster and mental energizer, while kale stabilizes blood sugar, fights free radicals, and detoxifies the liver (God knows we need that). Blend also offers juice cleanses — you know you want to try one. They’re all the rage, but that’s because they do good things for your body. Who doesn’t want a boost to their immune system, a digestion stimulant, and increased stamina? We can taste the healthy now.
