It’s a fresh start to a New Year. And if increased or continued health is a new priority, but SQUEEZING in the extra time and energy (and creativity!) to help make that happen is a struggle, consider the benefits of juicing. Enter Dunwoody local fave Press Blend Squeeze – Superfoods and Juicery. This local business can help add a little healthy to both your diet and life while handling the prep work, too.
I asked the family-based business owners, Matt and Nicole, what some of the benefits of juicing are, and Matt’s answer was simple: “You can drink way more than you can eat, and your body can instantly absorb all of the essential nutrients it needs from juicing. The benefits are endless. Whether you’re looking to fight cancer, a chronic illness, increase energy, reset your body’s natural functions, so on… juicing helps.”
Their mission is personal: “To help people and families fight cancer and other illnesses through food.” Having experienced the life improving and extending benefits themselves as a family, they felt charged to share it. Several years back, Matt’s father was diagnosed with cancer and the diagnosis was grim… only 5 months to live. So Matt and his family started looking at non-traditional holistic approaches to health and switched his father’s diet to predominately plant based and juicing. Proven to fight chronic illnesses, juicing and the diet switch created miraculous results. Not only did Matt’s father feel better, he ended up living five years longer.
IMPROVING THE LIVES OF PEOPLE
After seeing firsthand the health benefits of juicing and eating superfoods, Matt and Nicole decided to share their newfound passion with the community when they opened Press Blend Squeeze almost a year ago. “We’ve been blown away by the stories we’ve heard about how our juices are helping others. In just one week, five people came in saying they had a cancer diagnosis, and are looking to our juices to help their body get ready to fight. We’re ready to help them.”
They are also committed to sponsoring community events, clubs, and sports teams at many of the local schools that align with their belief in an active and healthy lifestyle. One special club they support is the Kale Club at Vanderlyn, and they recently invited members to help celebrate their equal admiration and love for kale.
IMPROVING THE ENVIRONMENT
Part of Press Blend Squeeze’s core mission is to improve the environment, so all of their containers and cups are enviro friendly, and majority of their ingredients are organically sourced from local sustainable farmers. “We can’t quite source bananas locally, however about 95% of our ingredients can be. Partnering with sustainable farmers who work to provide super fresh ingredients, while also honoring the environment is the way to go.”
IMPROVING THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER
Press Blend Squeeze creates all of its juices and superfoods with one thing in mind: improved health to help fight illnesses such as cancer. They give a part of their proceeds to cancer charities in honor of Matt’s father. But the last few months they have upped their commitment by creating ultra powerful condensed “Power Packs” with nutrients proven to fight cancer. “It provides the nutrition the cells need to overcome and ward off cancer by supplementing the nutritional needs of the body,” Matt says. And they’re getting orders from around the state and the country to ship these “Power Packs” to help those fighting the battle with cancer.
CROWD PLEASING JUICES
“We try to create juices and food that appeal to everyone. It should all taste yummy. That’s the reason why all ages love them, even our kids. We try to tell people juicing is an AND, not an OR. It’s an easy way to reach and complement what your body needs daily.” With a wide variety on the menu for every need (increased energy, digestion aid, etc), every age (a kids menu) and every taste, it’s hard not to want to try them all.
Favorites include: Roots and Fruits Squeeze (beet, carrots, ginger, lemon, orange), Daily Greens Squeeze (green, apple, celery, cucumber, kale, lemon, ginger), Detox Squeeze (grapefruit, lemons, oranges, pineapple) and Mood Lifter Squeeze (pineapple, spinach, lemon, cucumber) to name a few. And be sure your kiddos try Strawberry Blend (almond milk, banana, strawberries, maple syrup).
JUICE CLEANSING TO RE-SET
Press Blend Squeeze also offers juice cleanse options in 1-, 3-, and 5-day sets. Whether your goal is to lose weight, detox, or just re-set your body overall, their growing popularity (and demand!) is part of the reason why they are opening a second location in John’s Creek this year. “Our cleanses help give your body the natural re-set it needs, as well as your palate. Cleansing delivers what the body essentially needs, and ours are freshly made at our juicery. For those that prefer some food in the mix, we also have a ‘Cleanse to Dinner’ option that comes with a natural salad.”
No matter how you look at it, juicing can help meet those healthier lifestyle goals this year for you and the ones you love, and also help prevent and stave off illness for many years to come!
