It’s a beautiful hot late summer day and the sun is shining on the horizon in Niels Juels gate 29, over The Juicery. A charming quaint spot, hard to miss, bustling with people going in and out enjoying a freshly cold-pressed juice, smoothie or having a delicious Açai bowl - yes, the superhealthy little berry from Brasil.
I am offered a seat outside with the co-owner and nutritionist David Ersarve. We enjoy The Juicerys signature dish, The Açai bowl, and our conversation becomes increasingly interesting.
80% of Norwegians don’t meet the recommended daily intake of fruits, vegetables and berries, and one of The Juicery´s main missions is to contribute to increasing the intake of these health-bringing foods in the population. Dedicated to using organic ingredients when possible, The Juicery is committed to offer raw beverages with a high focus on health and well being. This fall has many new products in store such as warm and cold soups, salads and much more.
“The co-owners all do sports, we are very into the healthy lifestyle, and our goal working together it’s to make healthy and well tasting foods easily available for everybody, in a trendy and exciting wrapping. We import many kinds of exciting superfruits from Brazil and other places and constantly seek to keep the nutrient content high and sugar content low in all of our products”, David tells me. “Personally I think that is one of the things that makes us innovative, different, and better than the competition.”
And I totally agree with David. These fruits contain multiple benefits, are full of vitamins and minerals, they help your body detox, boost your metabolism, and purify your digestive system. No wonder these juices give you lots of energy!
Three months have gone since they opened, The Juicery is the new kid on the block, definitely to be reckoned with and follow into the line and trend with the international juicing-trend from all around the world.
After yoga, exercise or just a walk on the streets of lovely Frogner; if you are looking for a meal that nourishes your hearth, or smoothens your soul then The Juicery is definitely the right place to go.
HOW TO GET THERE: Take tram 12 to Niels Juels gate station, bus number 21 or any bus/trams to Solli Plass and walk from there.
