Garwood Juice House

Arielle Cassidy, a 23-year-old entrepreneur, with a degree in physiology and sport nutrition/nutrition has plans to open The Juice House, a juice bar/restaurant the first week of December on North Ave in Garwood.
Cassidy has always been active and enjoys working out. During the course of her employment at Trump International as an exercise specialist and a Tier 3 trainer at Equinox, she became certificated in NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine), nutrition, and as a sports performance specialist.
Because of her love for exercise and nutrition, Cassidy began preparing for a body building competition. During the time of the program she particularly focused on clean eating.
“You can really see the results you want when you really work hand and hand with your diet and exercise,” said Cassidy. “What most people don’t realize, is the main way to reach optimum fitness goals, is to know when and what to eat at specific times.”
When her options started becoming limited, Cassidy began experimenting and inventing new ways to recreate healthy eating. Soon enough, she discovered vast variations of healthy eats. Needless to say, salad was no longer the only healthy option. There were endless possibilities. However, this became difficult when eating meals outside of the kitchen.
“It was frustrating going into restaurants and asking them to take out ingredients that I didn’t know about,” Cassidy said. “That is why I want to give the community clean and healthy options without having them think twice about it. That is why I want to give the options for, gluten, dairy, soy, peanut and wheat allergies.”
The Juice House will offer freshly juiced and cold pressed organic juice, strategically made to assist specific bodily actions, such as anti-aging, sickness and bloat.
“Just for an example, some juices will also be mixed with Superfoods, such as Bee Pollen, which has 96 nutritious values and supplies essential proteins to the body while boosting metabolism,” Cassidy said.
There will also be a wide variety of Superfoods Smoothies, with the option of adding any type of protein powder and superfood from all over the world to assist energy and digestion.
“My favorite part opening The Juice House is being able to help and cater to each individual’s specific health needs,” Cassidy said.
The Juice House will also have various freshly homemade and portion controlled options available daily and is located at 510 North Avenue in Garwood.
