Along with the continuation of COVID-19, the beginning of a new year often marks a fresh start to develop healthy habits and boost one’s immune system. Juicing, whether for a cleanse or to supplement your daily meals, can be a great way to zap your system with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. And smoothies have long been a great meal replacer for those unsure what to eat, but looking for something that will kick-start that brain power to get through the day.
Portland — with its populations of runners, outdoor sport nerds, and health-conscious produce lovers — is a city teaming with cafes, carts, and juice bars blending and squeezing drinks well-stocked with fruits and vegetables.
