Adventures in Juice
I don't know about you, but I'm obsessed with fresh, cold-pressed juices. God knows there's nothing like a fresh, cold, nutrient-rich juice. Today I was in the Long Island City region on business and as I walked the streets, all of a sudden, I could smell rich antioxidants and minerals, a smell of fresh, organic roughage. The smell was primal and organic, and I knew it could be only one thing: the smell of large quantities of fruits and vegetables being pulverized into fresh juices. I followed the smell and found myself at a factory for Juice Press, the popular cold juice chain! Indeed, Juice Press mass-presses its juices and bottles and sends them to their numerous retail locations. Now, to be quite honest, as a juice aficionado, ideally a juice should be pressed to order on-site. However, Juice Press bottled juices are an acceptable alternative if your local pressery is closed, inconvenient, etc. The Juice Press factory in long Island City is in a re-furbished building near LaGuardia Community College, and there is a small retail counter where you can purchase a recently pressed juice. I got myself a "Doctor Green" with apple. pineapple, lemon, kale and ginger. Ahhh! So refreshing. I LOVE THIS COLD, FRESH JUICE!!!!!!!
