A 2018 Toast to your Health!

If a new year means a new you, then a new you means a new focus on your health and wellness.
Whatever it is you need to stick to your new goals, whether large or small, we’ve got something that’ll help.

Is 2017’s cold and flu season still dogging you? Try fresh juices packed with turmeric, ginger, lemon, and a number of other health boosting ingredients. We have customers who swear by Blueprint’s Lemon Yay, a cayenne-infused lemonade. Daily Greens and their cold pressed vegetable and fruit juices will have you feeling renewed and refreshed. And while Bija Bhar’s Resilience Blend isn’t a juice, its powerful combinations of inflammation-reducing turmeric, stomach-soothing ginger and vitamin-loaded lemon peel—among other ingredients—give it a well-deserved mention.

If you’re looking for something more substantial than juice, we’ve got you covered there, too. Mustard greens are the unsung heroes of healthy leafy greens! Grown and harvested right here in Brooklyn, mustard greens from Square Roots are rich in minerals and antioxidants, great for lowering cholesterol, and best of all, they’re easy to cook. Produce buyer Maggie Bissell recommends giving them a quick sauté with garlic and olive oil for a flavorful addition to virtually any meal.

Kicking coffee is never easy, and it’s harder still when you’re a busy New Yorker. Luckily, coffee isn’t the only delicious thing that’ll keep you going. Matcha is a powdered green tea from Japan, tied to ancient ceremonies still carried out today. It has half the caffeine of coffee, but still more caffeine than your standard bagged green tea, and is chock full of health benefits, from antioxidants to lowering blood sugar. If you’re on the run, try Remedy Matcha, boosted by maca and turmeric, or take it easy with a canister of Matchaful’s single origin matcha powder.
