Tell us a little bit about the person/team behind Blend and Press Wellness Bar?
Blend + Press is a Wellness Bar and shop that provides cold pressed juice, superfood smoothie blends, acai bowls, healthy bites, detox meals, cleanses and real life resets. The Bar provides a grab & go solution to your wellness needs by offering elevated plant powered food, juice and lifestyle products. Blend + Press is known for its signature cleanse called the Raw Reset. The new Sugar Detox Cleanse has created quite the following as well. The owner, Chelsea, brings her passion for the plant powered life to every recipe. She carefully sources everything and creates every recipe to provide the maximum nutrient density + delicious flavor. The curated selection of lifestyle products offered are her favorites. Chelsea and her team lovingly create all items at the wellness bar in a slow food manner, but offer them quickly with easy grab & go format.
What is a Raw Reset and what type of person should be looking at this program?
The beauty Behind the Raw Reset is that it is great for anyone! The Raw Reset is especially beneficial for anyone looking to adopt healthier habits and include a more natural plant forward approach to life. The unique format incorporates juice, wellness shots, a superfood smoothie, and a cleansing meal with each day of the reset. The reset is offered in 1,2,3 or 5 day packages.
The format enables even the busiest (and most active) clients to feel fueled and still enjoy the benefits of the super targeted reset. The support provided by the Blend + Press team and the failsafe schedule makes following this cleanse much easier than other cleanses. The reset is offered in Super Athlete, and Deep Green formats. These resets provide an option for new and seasoned cleansers.
When and why would you recommend the cleanses?
It is always a good time to do a reset! We suggest you begin a reset when you are able to allow for enough time to approach the experience mindfully. If you are able to prepare by eating plant powered array the day before.
To someone just starting out on their health journey what do you recommend as a first step?
The first step is just to step foot into the Bar to see all of the delicious and nutritious options we provide. Be open minded and willing to try new things. Be a yes person for your health! Try a reset. Then use the great energy you create as a result of the reset to catapult you into a healthier version of yourself.
