It’s no secret that I like to eat a clean and healthy diet, but if you know me, you know that healthy doesn’t mean that I’d ever compromise on taste! There are a few restaurants I love in Montreal that have amazing healthy options, which makes eating out super easy and guilt-free. But, one restaurant that I’m obsessed with and go to very frequently (more than I’d like to admit!) is Rejuice! Nutrition Organic Juice Bar.
Rejuice! Opened in 2011 and has been a Montreal staple for health and fitness buffs since the second they opened their doors. As a personal trainer and naturopath, Joanna Barcessat has curated a finely tuned menu complete with juices, smoothies, bowls, oatmeal, soups, salads, teas, avo toasts, and the list goes on. There is so much to choose from, and the wide array of flavours will keep you coming back until you’ve tried every single thing they sell!
The cold-pressed juices is where it all began. I love a great-tasting juice as either a meal replacer or a supplement, and they have some of the best combos. I personally love the celery juice and the cold buster (especially this time of year). Cold-pressed juices contain 5 times more enzymes, vitamins, and minerals than any other juice making-process. By locking in all of the nutrition, Rejuice! is a fan-favourite for all the serious health nuts who are in the know. They have a full fridge stocked and ready to go, so if you’re in a rush, you can always grab a meal on-the-go, which means you never have to compromise on what you put into your body.
Rejuice! also offers cleanses and detox packages. I like to include a one-day-a-week cleanse to my rotation. Either on a Monday after I’ve cheated on the weekend, or during the week to mix things up, I like to have an all-liquid day. It’s so easy to do when it tastes delicious, and the best part is that my kids love them! I love how juicing has become such a regular part of their diets – such a healthy alternative to orange or apple juice!
Some of my favourite items on the menu are the Avocado Dukka Toast, the Bullet Proof Coffee, and the Tumeric Tea. I usually grab a soup from the fridge, but they always have something freshly made simmering and ready for their lunch crowd. I also love the salad combos they have available in the fridge, especially knowing that they are approved by the famous Christian Limoge (our own local Naturopath and rockstar!).
Rejuice! is such an incredible little shop. Local and run by one fierce female, I’m proud to recommend this juice bar to anyone who asks where they can eat something healthy, mindful, and super yummy (and did I mention insta worthy!?)
