You’re doing it wrong. No offense meant, you probably don’t even know it. If you’re juicing at home, or spending hard-earned money on juice made by any method other than cold-pressed, you’re doing it wrong. OK, maybe not wrong (with air quotes), but hear us out. The heat pro- duced in other common juicing methods kills valuable enzymes and nutrients in the process. Cold-pressed produces minimal heat through pres- sure which keeps the fruit/veggies cold the entire time. Listen, we didn’t realize it either; we knew juice was good. How else can you quickly down 3–4 pounds of fruits/veggies (try getting that out of your $10 salad). Anyway, SUSTAIN JUICERY in Bellaire (watch for a Greenway Plaza location soon) preached us wise, and they will convert you too. Using multiple presses to precisely extract the most juice from the top-quality ingredients (they even grind their own fresh tamarind), Sustain works hard to provide its products. They also work hard at efficiency and pro- viding top value for your money. And passion? Plenty of that to go around, too. These guys know cold-pressed, small batch juice and they want to share it with you. Come sit at the bar, set up like a cocktail bar with all the interaction, minus the liquor. Try some juices. Talk juices. Customize one for your special dietary needs. Or, follow the menu: pink = fruit side, blue = midrange of fruit/veggie, purple = veg out. Don’t fear the juice. If you are going to do this, do it right, and let Wen and his crew at Sustain get you there. They even deliver!
You know what else you may be doing wrong (again with air quotes)? Well, take a look at this perfect pair. That Revival, the juice of kale, collard green, spinach, parsley, cucumber, celery, ginger, lime and cayenne, is green goodness!!! And the pitaya bowl, which is frozen blast of pitaya (cactus fruit) topped with berries and locally made granola – we could eat this every day. Stop drooling for a second and consider that this pair could be your lunch. Every day. Could there be any better for you, more nutritious provider of that, oh so necessary, afternoon kick as this pair? A cool, satisfying and delicious bowl, made exactly how you like it, using the guided menu and a cold-pressed juice after? Is this the ultimate lunch? We’ll let you decide, but darn, if it is isn’t.
