You’re little in the middle, but unprecedented springtime gluttony (damn those record temps) caused baby to acquire a tad much back.
Check yourself with an organic cleanse from Nourish Your Soul, West Medford’s new juice and smoothie shop, opening Saturday.
Owner and holistic health counselor Susan Cabana sources local veggies and fruits when possible, then hydraulic-presses the suckers to extract every nutritional drop. Five daily flavors include the quenching pineapple-pear-mint elixir and a protein-rich almond milk. Juicing vets give bottomless thanks to the Grapefruit Green, which softens kale’s blow with pear, cucumber, and citrus.
Cabana consults with each customer to determine the correct cleanse length and can amend any recipe for taste preferences and allergies. Unlike when you order NYC-based cleanses, you avoid shipping costs and FedEx hassles (not all of us have doormen) because pickup is in-store.
Now shake that healthy rump.
Taste samples Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Nourish Your Soul, 17 Playstead Road, West Medford (888-995-8423). Order in advance at nourishyoursoul.com, $175-$225.
