Dans le Jus / Rejuice!
As we come to the end of 2016, we reflect back on our challenges and triumphs and look forward to what lies ahead. Rejuice is, in the truest sense, a labour of love. While 2016 saw some significant challenges, we also experienced wonderful expansion. We added new items to our salad menu, acquired better equipment, and added the (oh so popular) avocado toast to the juice bar menu! As well, we worked to formulate new healing and energizing cleanses to try and meet the needs of our expanding clientele and introduced some great new cold pressed juices.
There can be no growth without growing pains and while we could have gone the way of many cold-pressed juice companies and began pasteurizing (HPP) our juices, which would extend shelf life and profits, we chose to stay true to our mandate – provide raw, living nutrition. No compromises. Rejuice is not about the bottom line, but about your health. And although we know we are not perfect, we are a work in progress and constantly guided and inspired by the customers who stay loyal and to the new people who discover us. Even when it is 3 a.m. and we are worried about the overhead, we know we are on the right path. It is your happy faces and your gratitude that makes us thrive. That is why we wanted to take this moment and just say thank you.
Our holiday wish for all of you is that you follow your hearts, that you don’t give up, that you commit to loving yourself and your beautiful body, and you experience the most joy, peace, perfect health and happiness in the New Year and always.
Be Happy, be Healthy xoxo

heat damages the enzyme myrosinase, which breaks down glucosinates (compounds derived from glucose and an amino acid) in broccoli into a compound known as sulforaphane. On the other hand, indole, an organic compound, is formed when certain plants, particularly cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage, are cooked. According to research in The Journal of Nutrition in 2001, indole helps kill precancerous cells before they turn malignant.
