Hello Free Spirits,
I just got back from another wonderful NYC trip, the weather was 30+ so I was craving some fresh cold pressed juice. Being a tour guide is a demanding job and I don’t always have time to eat a full meal especially breakfast. I prefer the extra 10 minutes of sleep! You feel me?
So I love that extra boost of vitamins and nutrients I get from a nice cold pressed fruit and vegetable juice.
There are three places that I love going when I am staying in SOHO
- Address:103 Mercer Street, New York
A perfect place to go after your long shopping day in SOHO or for a grab and go juice/ smoothie between meetings. They are well staffed with friendly people and have a wonderful selection of high quality juices. They also have Premium waters such as Alkaline H2O and Aloe Vera H2O, they also offer juice cleanses at a great price. What I really like about this place is their massive fridge stacked up with their most famous juice blends. Its great for those who want to grab a healthy juice but are in a rush. Like myself for example!
This tour I was feeling particularly sick with a stuffy nose and dry throat. The lady who worked there recommended taking one of the Wellness shots for quick relief. As soon as I saw the wonderful ingredients in the wellness shot I was all in! Ginger, Lemon and Cayenne were sure to beat my infection or whatever was making me sick. I had some water handy with my wellness shot because knowing it had ginger as an ingredient I knew that it was going to be hot.
- Did the shot work for me? Yes it did, the next day I had no runny and stuffy nose!
- Would I go back? Yes I would, without any hesitation!
- What were the prices like: decent. Range from $2-7 and juice cleanse from around $35
Overall Comments: Great selection of juice, great grab and go fridge, they sell other organic snacks, juice cleanse.
2) Whole Foods
- Address: 95 E Houston St, New York
For those of you not familiar with whole foods it is a giant supermarket with everything from meat, eggs, cheese, vegetable and fruits, and cosmetics and supplements. Its like a paradise for health nuts, like myself. What I really like is that whole food has a large selection of organic food and health products. They even have a large hot bar where you can grab create your own lunch or dinner. Here you have hundreds of hot food options to choose from.
What I love to get here: A hot lunch and a Kombucha (fermented tea drink) and some organic popcorn for the road.
- Adress: 51 E Houston St, New York
This place is oh so convenient for me! I love how it is right on Houston Street and Broadway which is right where the tour bus drops our tour group off when we are in Soho. This place not only has fresh pressed juice but they have a healthy food cafe as well. I really like their options and you can see how they juice it all for you on the spot! They even make wheatgrass shots from the fresh wheatgrass they have on site! My favourite drink is the carrot, apple and ginger juice which was bright orange and the best part you couldn’t taste the ginger! They have seats inside so you can sit down and enjoy your meal or juice in the cold air conditioned room. But you know me, I love enjoying my fresh juice outside while walking around the beautiful SOHO area.
- Prices: From $2 to 15(for food)
- Interior: 5/10 very old interior
- Juice Quality: Cold Pressed and no frozen or juice concentrate used
- Location is amazing right on border of SOHO and NOHO
All these are my favourite places to go for some healthy organic food and drinks while I am in SOHO! I will be updating this page often as I discover more places in the area! Leave your email in the subscribers list or in the comments below to follow along with my adventures!
Have a great day my free spirits! Till next time!
