A fresh start



Today I wasn't feeling well and I felt a migraine coming on. As most of you know I am trying to incorporate a healthy lifestyle and do things naturally without prescriptions.  After I dropped the kids off at school I had an appointment so I decided to go to the Starbucks which was on the way. When I pulled up I saw a sign for Nekter juice bar. Not sure if this was a mirage in my distorted state, so I sat in the car to see if this was too good to be true. I noticed people going in and out so I quickly got my toddler out of the car and we walked in.





 I had the opportunity to talk to Shannon who is the franchise owner at the Mission Viejo location. My eyes were red,  my face was swollen, I had no makeup on and I was at the beginning stage of a migraine. I knew it was only a matter of time before the fireworks were going to start. After talking to her briefly she asked if I was currently having a migraine. I told her I was, the next thing I know she is ordering my drink to be made. 






She told me that the Tonic Flush would help me and it did!






OHH the firecrackers went off only in my mouth, POWerful!!! I could taste the ginger and it settled my stomach, they add more ginger then I do for my drinks. It tasted great and I was battling with my toddler on who would get more straw time.


Their walls are decorated with beautiful pictures of fruits and vegetables. Each picture describes the benefits of that fruit and vegetable. 



 This Friday December 6th,   will have their official grand opening at their Mission Viejo location; 28391-A Marguerite Parkway. If you come between the hours of 7-11am you will get a free 16oz juice or smoothie. If you are one of the first 50 people to come in you will get a free $25.00 gift card.


Oh thats not all!!!!!! 






If you come in during the grand opening and get a one day juice cleanse you will get it for $35. If you don't believe how great this deal is check out this link ~ to find out what a steal this is.





See you Friday, December 6th!

Awww, I love places like this, but we don't have them really around here yet. Maybe in Boston, but out in the burbs there are no juice bars. I am super jealous.

MikiHope said...

None of these around here-we do have juice bars but just not this one. I don't get migraines thank heavens but i find it interesting that the drink virtually stopped yours from coming on full blast--ginger you sat?

Corinne Schmitt said...

That's amazing that 1) she diagnosed a migraine just by looking at you, and 2) she was able to cure it so quickly with a well-formulated drink! I wish we had one near us because I'd definitely take them up on the juice cleanse.

Coolmoms Cooltips said...

I would love one of these in our area since I am totally into alternative healing. I healed my candida when the doctors turned their back on me. It works!

mail4rosey said...

That's pretty awesome that it helped curtail a migraine in the works. I get those too, and they're no fun at all.

DeDa Studios said...

I wish we had something like this by us. I have only heard positive about juicing.

debdenny said...

This is a fantastic find! wish they had a place near me.

Angela said...

I get terrible migraines. I'll have to see if they have a location near me.

Pam said...

My daughter gets terrible migraines. It would be nice if we had a place like this near us.

I've never heard of this place before but I wish they would set one up close by. Sounds great

I miss the juice bars. I lived near one when I lived in NYC but nothing here. Oh how I miss living in the big city. :(

Jessica said...

Yum this looks awesome. I love juice but I've never been to a dedicated juice bar.

That is so cool, I will have to go see if they have any drink for my sinus headaches... ha.

Sounds like great healthy alternatives to Starbucks. I will have to look for one of these in my area. It really does look good.

I could use a Tonic Flush right about now!

Wendy said...

I would KILL for a place like this in my town! I think the only way it's going to happen is if I open one.

Tina said...

What a great place you found! I hope it helped get rid of your migraine, too!

Cynthia Landrie said...

I am so glad that she was able to mix up something for you migraine. This sounds like a great place to go to, sick or not!

Have Kids Will Coupon said...

What a great place!

deborahinfo said...

"Tonic Flush," by name seems like it would be helpful. I'm glad it worked for you!

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

I've been really trying to look into doing more juicing here at home. I know that it is a healthier alternative and the kids really like them instead of eating veggies.

Lolo @ Crazy About My Baybah said...

This sounds like a fabulous juice bar! I love adding ginger to my juice.

Chrishelle Ebner said...

Looks like a great juice bar. I would love to know what was in your Tonic Flush. My son has migraines and I am looking for some natural remedies. Great review.

Danielle @ We Have It All said...

So glad to hear that helped! I think the juice flushes really do work!

Teresa McCluskey said...

Wow! I love how green that drink is! I would LOVE to go there but there is none close to me! So I guess I will have to wait it out!

Annie said...

I have yet to have a migraine, but I'm glad that the drink worked for you! Love when nature cures things :)

Elisebet F said...

That's awesome! I've never seen any place like that around here, but I wish we had one. I know they have juice bars up in DC, so maybe next time I'm in the city, I can try some. In the meantime, I'll have to keep making my own juice!

Le-an Lai Lacaba said...

My mother is an advocate for juicing fruits and vegetables, so I can relate to this. I'd love to learn about the juice recipe you tried to help with my migraine

Katherine Bartlett said...

Oh yum, I wish they had places like this in my small town!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I like how she fixed you up with the perfect drink for your symptoms!

Jennifer Williams said...

I wish I had one of these here, we used to have something similar but they decided to move to a bigger city. It is amazing one the juice drinks can do to make you feel better.

Shannah @ Just Us Four said...

This looks awesome. I wish we had a juice bar closer.

Jessica Harlow said...

This sounds great! I wish we had juice bars up here! I live in Maine and we are always the last to get cool places like this!

Elizabeth said...

I love juice bars-- I always seek them out when I'm in cities!

Mama to 5 said...

love juicing! I wonder if they will open one of these by me? I have never been to a juice bar before.

Ashley Gill said...

This sounds fabulous!! I need one of these places near by! And that cleanse.. I WANT!! I need something RIGHT NOW to flush my system.. I will be going to their website right now!

Patricia Woolverton said...

Sounds interesting. I never heard of a juice cleanse before.

Heather Lawrence said...

Mmmm....that looks Yummy!!
We have a juicer so lots of what I drink is green :0)
I bet you felt amazing after drinking one!!

Mel Cole said...

Drinking fruit juices is what I missed doing. That green drinks looks yummy!

Carmen Uballe said...

I have not seen a juice bar in my area (but I don't get out much so that might be why lol) I would love to try the one she gave you for a migraine though I get a lot of those and nothing seems to help

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

Wow. it's actually fascinating when things like that happen - especially having those kind of healthy drinks, too!

Robyn Good said...

Sounds like a great juice bar. I would be stopping here daily.

The Lucky Wife said...

I've never seen one of these but will have to see if there's one in my area! Amazing that she could tell you were getting a migraine. I need to check out out detox drinks ... I read how important detoxing is for cancer prevention and I started doing a detox diet once a year last year. I do believe strongly in using natural options BEFORE medical! There is a place for medicine but America has come to depend on it too much instead of figuring out where the root of the problems are and addressing those. Great post!
