If you think going on a juice cleanse sounds like a good idea but aren’t excited about the amount of work it requires, then Vibrant Earth Juices might be just the thing for you. Santa Barbara nutritionist Jill Latham started her business, Vibrant Earth Juices, about a year ago after she noticed many of her clients would benefit from a cleanse but were daunted by the idea. She began delivering the juices she developed to local customers.
Although the three- and five-day cleanses ($195 and $325, respectively) that come in fruit and vegetable juices still can be purchased for delivery, Ms. Latham is now selling the drinks individually ($8) at Plow to Porch Organics Inc., located on upper State Street.
Four of the juices contain fruits and vegetables, such as Immunity, a pineapple, pear, lemon and mint concoction that also includes flax oil, and Calm, which features kale, beets, carrot, ginger, flax oil and cucumber with strawberry and apple. Other products include a nut milk drink and detox juice.
The benefits of juicing with these products include having more energy. “The goal is to push the reset button,” Ms. Latham said. “It kind of gets you back to a very basic eating pattern.”
Ms. Latham says that the juices eliminate most of the work and cost for clients who want to experience the health effects of a juice cleanse.
“I wanted to provide a juice that makes it as simple as possible.” Plow to Porch Organics is located at 3204 State St. You also can purchase at www.vibrantearthjuices.com.
