Spring Is Near And We Got Juice the Right Thing For You

I can't get enough of holiday meals and wintery comfort food. But with warmer weather around the corner, I wanted to reset my body with a juice cleanse. Since I most often associate juices with Minute Maid or Tropicana, I needed help.

Juices in fridge

How are your New Year’s resolutions looking these days? I, for one, promise myself every year to slow down the carb loading after the holidays. But every year I also remember that I live in a city where -15° Celsius is just another winter day. So naturally I need a hibernation-style food depository and diet to keep me warm.

With this latest cold snap and renewed extreme weather warnings, it is hard to believe, but Spring might be just around the corner. Earlier this week, The Weather Network reported that weather patterns might flip as early as mid-March. Panicked, I once again try to change my habits. Out with the stodgy comfort food… bring on the juices! When I walk into any odd juice bar or health food cafe however, I am quickly overwhelmed. I choose the safest (read: a mix of two yummy fruit juices) option, get out quickly, and feel good about my #adulting.

This time, I’d like to be smarter about it. While looking for a cleansing solution, I come across ELXR Juice Lab situated practically right below the DINE Magazine offices at Scotia Plaza in the PATH. Relaying once again my whole “trying-to-get-better” spiel, the helpful juice barista recommends putting together a starter kit they call: The Reset. This collection of juices, tonics, nut milk and booster is meant for the amateur cleansers among us.

Mix It Up With a Salad Or Healthy Breakfast

The Reset features a number of items across ELXR’s product slate, which not only consists of beverages. At the their Juice Labs, you can also find a number of salads, soups, and protein bowls, or start your day probiotic parfait or overnight oats.

When it comes to fresh and sustainable food, ELXR practices what they preach. All of the ingredients used in their products are locally sourced, raw, and unpasteurized. If you don’t want your juice or booster today, don’t fret. All products have a refrigerated shelf life of up to four days. All of ELXR’s bottles are also made of glass and are 100% recyclable.

After my Reset, I don’t know if I’d go all juice all the time, but ELXR’s food options seem like a great solution for not having a lunch coma on a warm spring or summer day. I might even go for a healthy cookie treat. If you’d like to see what all the fuss is about, you can find their Juice Labs at Scotia Plaza, in Yorkville Village or at Bayview Village. Alternatively order to your heart’s content from ELXR’s website or visit one of their retail partners.
