Hi Juice Enthusiasts!
Come out and learn how to make that fresh, 100% organic juice you've always loved at Juicey Lucy's! Lisa Bach will be sharing with us her extensive 20 years of juice alchemy at the Cellar Demo Kitchen at Macy's Union Square. The demo will be happening this Saturday at 2:00 PM and we will be featuring a state-of-the-art household juicer available at Macy's for a discount the day of the event.
Juicey Lucy's philosophy says that real fresh juice is not to be served in a bottle that has been sitting on a shelf or in a refrigerator. Fresh juice is meant to be enjoyed the same day it was pressed to ensure you benefit fully from its nutrients and to guarantee that it is the most pleasing to your taste palate. When juice is not fresh pressed, the majority of helpful enzymes are lost within the time that it is unsealed. Our juices are made in a minute and sealed within the next minute, therefore reducing it's exposure to air and avoiding loss of nutritional value.

Pineapple are rocking our block here at Juicey Lucy's and we wanted to share some of the incredible benefits of this wonderful fruit. Pineapples are native to South America, and were introduced to Europe by Columbus. The fruit is actually a compound body, composed of many flowers, which become tiny fruits and then fuse together around a central core. Our pineapples are grown in Mexico, so they don't have to take a trans-Pacific flight to come to you.
Pineapples are high in fiber, and also contain vast amounts of Vitamin C. As such they are great for your skin, joints, teeth and gums, as well as respiratory health and boosting immunity. Vitamin C is an effective counter against free-radical damage in human tissue, and is necessary for collagen synthesis in your body.
Many digestive enzyme supplements contain bromelain, which is found in pineapple. Bromelain helps you to digest protein, and also has anti-inflammatory, anti-clotting, and anti-cancer properties. Bromelain can help against indigestion, and it's anti-inflammatory properties are helpful in alleviating arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms. While all parts of the pineapple contain trace amounts of bromelain, the enzyme is at it's highest concentration in the stem and the core of the fruit. Juicing pineapple is a great way to get the benefits of bromelain, as the core fruit can be tough.
One cup of fresh pineapple contains 75% of your body's daily requirement for manganese, which is essential for building and maintaining strong bones and connective tissues.
Pineapples, like most fruit, have been shown to help prevent macular degeneration, which is the primary cause of vision loss in adults. Three servings of fruit a day can lower your risk of macular degeneration by 35%.
