I recently became a brand ambassador for OH! Juice after sampling their fresh pressed juices and really enjoying them.
They are a local San Diego business and their juices are available for delivery or for pick-up from the Hillcrest and Little Italy Farmer’s markets. While I’ve never been particularly good at a full 3-day juice only diet, I do enjoy doing a cleanse consisting of mostly juices with some small salads mixed in.
I find myself doing a 1-day juice cleanse at least once a month (usually after a particularly heavy weekend of eating) to “reset” my body. Otherwise, after so many baked goods and eating out, I develop uncontrollable cravings for junk food. But after a cleanse, even a short one day one, I don’t crave unhealthy foods as much and have the willpower to make smarter eating decisions. Of course, eventually that willpower goes away, and I start making bad choices for days on end, and then it’s time for another reset.
I’ve tried about half a dozen pressed juice companies and so far OH! Juice has been my favorite. Here are a few reasons why:
1. Glass bottles. Most press juices I’ve had are sold in plastic bottles. But discovering that OH! Juice uses glass bottles was a moment of enlightenment. It makes so much more sense to be serving the juices in glass bottles. After all, the juices taste better and it’s healthier. Glass bottles unfortunately do cost a little more, but if you bring back your bottles, the company gives you a discount.
2. Nutritional content. It seems only natural that if you’re drinking these juices for health, you want to know exactly what is in them, but it’s been surprisingly hard for me to get the exact nutritional information from many companies selling pressed juices. So I was really happy when my OH! Juice pack came with a pamphlet which not only gives the nutritional breakdown, but also tells you exactly how many of each fruit and/or vegetable are going into each glass (i.e., 2 cucumbers, 1 bunch of kale, etc).
3. Taste. Of course, taste is important. I found all the six flavors offered in the classic cleanse pack to be enjoyable, though I especially like the nice melons and the maca milk. The maca milk is a cinnamon flavored shake that you are supposed to drink at the end of the day. It tastes so good! I had to double check the nutrition information because it seemed so sweet and luxurious, but it actually does not have that much sugar added.
I’ve been trying OH! Juice for two months now, and so far I am really enjoying it. If you’re in San Diego and interested in trying them out, I recommend you visit them at the Hillcrest or Little Italy Farmer’s markets on weekends because you can sample all the juices available before purchasing. There are also various purchase options. You can buy individual bottles, a 6-pack, a three day cleanse, etc. For more information, you can visit their website.
*Please note, as stated above, I have partnered with OH! Juice to help spread the word about this local business. I was given complimentary juice packs but was not further compensated for this review. My opinions remain my own.
