Juice Bar in Tijuana – VIDA Wellness and Beauty
Individuals can visit the VIDA Wellness and Beauty juice bar when they need a nutritious pick me up. The VIDA juice bar exists so that we can support our patients’ goals of achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, in a satisfying way that does not leave individuals feeling deprived or malnourished: “The Juicy Way.” In addition, it is our hope that our juice bar will help us connect with health-conscious individuals living in or around Tijuana, B.C., as well those living in the United States regions located just across the border.
Let Food Be Thy Medicine
The VIDA juice bar is the result of collaboration amongst an internal medicine physician, two nutritionists, a raw-food chef and a few of the creators of the comprehensive VIDA health and wellness project. Our goal with the VIDA juice bar is to educate people about and provide them with healthy food and drink alternatives to those available in a sometimes unhealthy urban landscape. Whether individuals seek a breakfast alternative to coffee and pastries or desire a complete lifestyle transformation, the VIDA juice bar can provide nutritious, delicious and satisfying options for them that fit into their everyday routines.
The values of our juice bar include: simplicity, effectiveness and honesty. We are committed to educating our patients about proper nutrition that they can sustain.
The VIDA Juice Bar Offerings
At the VIDA juice bar, we offer a seasonal menu comprised of healthy and delectable food and drink items. In particular, the VIDA juice bar offers fresh cold-press juices, smoothies made with super foods, açaí bowls, salads and soups, which are appropriate for our pre- and post-operative patients as well as for weight loss and nutrition patients who are dedicated to adhering to a healthy diet and nutrition plan. In addition, the nutritious items served at the VIDA juice bar can be consumed in conjunction with any of the various custom detoxification programs, or signature “cleanses,” that our internal medicine physicians and licensed nutritionists formulate for patients seeking to rid their body of toxins. At VIDA juice, we believe that the healthiest, most well-balanced diets are those that are simple yet delicious.
More About Our Offerings
Each menu item provides unique health and wellness benefits, depending on the ingredients in the item. It is our responsibility to conduct research and identify the ingredients that provide the greatest health benefits to our customers. Based on our findings, we create menu items consisting of fresh, sustainable ingredients that fulfill our customers’ health and wellness goals.
Why Cold-Press Juices
Making a cold-press juice is a labor of love. All our juices are made from raw, organic ingredients, using a hydraulic press juicer. Creating cold-press juices in this manner allows us to offer a product that is pure and unadulterated.
What makes a hydraulic cold press so unique is that it works by applying thousands of pounds of pressure to the pulp of the fruits and vegetables used in the juices, extracting the nectar directly from the fruits and vegetables. In contrast, a traditional juicer uses high-speed blades to cut and grind the pulp from the fruits and vegetables, which causes the juice itself to oxidize, destroying its nutrients.
For this reason, cold-press juices will not separate nearly as much as those made using a traditional juicer. It is also the reason that cold press juices have a much smoother consistency than those made with a traditional juicer.
Making cold-press juices is a much more labor-intensive process than making juices with the use of a traditional juicer, but it makes all the difference because it allows us to extract every bit of the valuable vitamins, minerals and nutrients from the fruits and vegetables.
In addition, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 33 percent of adults meet the recommendation for daily fruit consumption and only 27 percent of adults meet the recommendation for daily vegetable consumption. At VIDA juice, we believe in providing a quick and delicious way for individuals to ensure that they and their family are meeting recommendations for fruit and vegetable consumption on a daily basis.
About Super Foods
What is a “super food”? In general, super foods are whole, unprocessed foods that are low in calories but extremely high in nutrients including antioxidants. Super foods may be vegetables, berries, nuts or seeds. Physicians and nutritionists around the world understand that consuming super foods is important for anyone seeking to optimize their health and wellbeing. For this reason, we include super foods in many of our menu items, including in our signature super-food smoothies.
If you are in need of a food or drink item that is healthy, filling, rich in protein and, most of all, delicious, a VIDA super-food smoothie might be just what you are looking for. All our smoothies are sweet enough to satisfy even the biggest “sweet tooth,” but do not contain any added sugars or sweeteners. Our super-food smoothies are sweetened only by Mother Nature. Also, besides being packed with super foods, our super-food smoothies are made using organic almond milk or coconut milk; they do not contain any soy or dairy products.
Finally, one of our most popular super-food menu items is the açaí bowl. The açaí berry is chocked full of antioxidants and provides proven health benefits. Our açaí bowls are healthy, filling and extremely tasty. Bon Appétit!
