I hate to admit it, but the first time I went to New York City, I wasn’t sure about it. I thought I would instantly fall in love like everyone does. But I just didn’t. It was fast, chaotic and going a million miles an hour. I remember thinking, how the hell was I supposed to stay grounded in this place?! But then something happened… I just let go of whatever I thought my experience was supposed to be and now I can’t get enough of this city! Every time I go now, I have a new experience that makes me want to come back for more. This is a city that has something for everyone; you just have to be willing to find it! And find it I did! On this visit, I spent most of my days in Central Park – the lungs of this great city. It was awesome to be amongst nature and also be surrounded by towering buildings at the same time. I found myself loving the contrast and going to Central Park most days to have lunch.
My fiancé told me about a place I should check out for lunch, that he knew I would love! The problem was he couldn’t remember what it was called and where exactly it was. Yeah thanks?! Until…I stumbled across it myself! And there is not only one, but over 18 dotted around Manhattan.
Juice Press is awesome healthy fast food! Well, that is how I describe it! It is organic, raw, vegan, healthy, wholesome, real food. Healthy fast food at its best and very convenient to take to Central Park for lunch! Juice Press is so much more than cold pressed juices (which are all amazing by the way). They have a great smoothie selection, super tasty salads, impressive raw vegan dishes, superfood snacks and crave inducing raw desserts! Oh and they also have a range of wholesome soups if you need a warm and fuzzy kick.
A few of my favourites: the Raw Falafel Salad, Marinated Kale Salad, Raw Ravioli (made with thinly sliced turnip, seriously good and a must try), Key Lime Superfood Bowl, Blueberry Superfood Bowl (honestly one of the best raw desserts I have tasted and I am craving it right now!), Green Giant Juice (a meal in its self!) and the refreshing OMG Juice. And be prepared for a big menu selection too, there is a lot to choose from. So I am sure I will have new favourite’s next time I visit!
Press Juice is the quickest and easiest way to grab a healthy meal on the go, while running around New York City seeing the sights. The best way to find a Juice Press closest to you while in New York City, is to Google Map it or check locations on the Press Juice location directory here.
On this visit, Juice Press and a sunny day in Central Park was an awesome combination!
