The Bloody Mary
A great support for the kidneys and heart, Sunny Bridge Natural Foods & Café’s August Juice of the Month, the Bloody Mary, contains tomato, celery, jalapeño, parsley, and lemon. The jalapeño kickstarts metabolism and helps with blood flow, as the celery replenishes the body’s potassium levels and helps regulate blood pressure.

Talk about raising the bar! The McMurray-based health food and natural product grocery store has responded to its customers’ demands by expanding its raw juice offerings with a new bar.

Created by Stacey Waffensmith, manager of the café, bakery, and juice bar, the juices and smoothies contains many organic fruits and vegetables. Says owner Gina Snyder, “Juicing is a fun way to eat your fruits and vegetables, infusing your body with an easy absorption of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. It’s a great way to get your rainbow of foods and nutrients.” Waffensmith notes, “I notice that when I juice, I have less cravings for sweets and breads, which are my weakness.”

In addition to soothing or combatting inflammation, juicing provides essential nutrients to the body quickly and efficiently — and most likely includes double the amount of produce you’d ever put on your plate in one sitting.

The store’s featured June Juice of the Month, The Green Caterpillar, is comprised of kale, which is packed with vitamins A and K; lemon to support the liver; and ginger for healthy digestion. “This amazing [ginger] root gives this juice just the kick you need!” says Snyder.

Waffensmith’s latest creation, the Nuttier Monkey, is also a customer favorite. An upgraded expansion on the Nutty Monkey, the Nuttier Monkey is made of almond butter, a significant protein; a banana for stabilizing blood sugar; brewed coffee; and vanilla. Waffensmith says, “What better combination for creating the ultimate happy mood?”
