The GOODS from The Juice Truck
Vancouver, BC | The past month has been an ongoing stream of holiday indulgences. Dinners upon dinners, chocolates and holiday baking, wine and beer. Now that we’ve got through the holidays, it’s time to recommit to your health and wellness and get things back on track.
There is no need to have any regrets. Life is about balance. And sometimes saying yes to that extra slice of pumpkin pie is necessary. To rebalance and reboot, The Juice Cleanse by the Juice Truck is a great way to reset the dial and get back to some healthy habits and get your year started with a fast track to feeling good.
ABOUT OUR CLEANSE | Our cold-pressed Juice Cleanse juices retain maximum nutritional value. They taste great because you don’t have to cut back on deliciousness to increase their detoxifying benefits. And there’s a Juice Cleanse for every level of cleanser because we think everyone should be able to feel as good as we do.
Welcome to The Juice Cleanse – part two of our ongoing passion for all things juice. We think you’re going to fall in love with juice like we did.
WHY CLEANSE? | Put very simply, it’s like hitting your body’s reset button.
But it’s not quite that simple. The Juice Cleanse is a great way to give your body a break from unhealthy food choices (let’s be honest, we all make them), dehydration and general excess.
And even if you’re a pillar of exercise, purity and clean living, we’re all exposed to unavoidable environmental pollutants on a daily basis. It’s estimated that, on average, we can all have at least 5 – 10lbs of accumulated toxic waste from sources like prescription drugs, cleaning products, auto pollution, dry cleaning chemicals as well as preservative and additives in the foods we eat.
The good news is your body is built to eliminate toxins and waste. And it works hard at it on your behalf every single day. So give it a little help. A round of applause. A pat on the back. A leg up. A turbo boost. Give it The Juice Cleanse.

Never underestimate the power of a trek through the Himalayas to change your life. We (Zach and Ryan, Juice Tenders) tossed around ideas of going into business together for years, but it was two weeks into a Himalayan trek, snowbound in a small Nepalese village when inspiration struck.
We noticed the locals drinking a vibrant, sweet smelling, orange-coloured drink. We discovered it was made from Seabuckthorn berries and it supplied these high altitude locals with most of their nutrients. It was this juice, so essential to their health, which changed our perspective on juice and sparked a new idea.
We spent the next year travelling the world, never going very long without seeking out the nearest juice stand. How many other nutritious, Seabuckthorn-like juices and juice blends were there out there that we could bring them to Canada? Turns out, quite a few.
When we came home, The Juice Truck was born.
Juice does some amazing things for your body and health. It’s also delicious, refreshing and hydrating, which is every bit as important. Especially the delicious part.
We make the most nutritionally complete juice possible. Our premium cold press makes juice that contains more essential vitamins, minerals and enzymes than juice made any other way. The cold press also preserves the natural flavours of the produce, which we feel makes the juice tastier.
We support local produce and organic farming practices as a way of extending our passion for healthy living beyond our cozy corner of Water and Abbott Streets. In the case of fruits and vegetables that just aren’t locally or seasonally available (mmmmm, pineapple), we take a long look at potential suppliers to verify their growing standards and practices measure up to our standards.
In 2012, we are adding The Juice Cleanse (thejuicecleanse.ca) to The Juice Truck family. It’s part two of our ongoing passion with all things juice.
