the JUICE life
This being my first attempt at a blog, I'm not really sure where to begin, besides at where it all began. The Shakery Juice Bar was an idea manifested in the minds of myself and my Juice Lady. Moving home to Dayton from Austin, Texas to have our first of two little peanuts was the first step of many in our dreams coming to fruition.
Working in the service industry in some shape or another most of our lives, but always having the passion to be an enterpunuer, it was an easy choice when we decided to take the money we had saved and roll the dice on our idea. Why not take to the streets our knowledge of health and wellness? We have such a great passion for juice because we have personally experienced the many benefits. We want to show the world how a healthy lifestyle will allow you to feel your best, and most likely, add years to your life. When you realize the benefits, you will want to share too!
Within one year, The Shakery has went from a mobile juice trailer to Dayton's ONLY organic juice delivery service. If you would have told me 5 years ago that today I would be doing parking lot deals, dropping off 20 lbs of juice to someone, I would have laughed until it hurt. I will say however this is the best damn job anyone could ever have. Being boss to yourself is more reward than heartache, and only having yourself to account for is something that you can go home proud of.
So why do I love juice so much? I can attribute all this to becoming a vegetarian. It is amazing how when you start small by cutting meat out one day, then eating more local, organic, and sustainable, and next thing you know, you are becoming borderline vegan 6 years later. The power of plants is like no other force I have ever witnessed. I have personally alleviated bodily pain by drinking juice and eating health.
In the coming weeks I will be sharing some recipes and informing you on what to expect before, during, and after you do a complete body detoxification. I truly believe that with the right mind set and dedication, it is never too late to start living a balanced healthy lifestyle.
