It's no secret that L.A. is a particularly health and body-conscious city, but if you wanted to try one of those raved-about juice cleanses, you used to be on your own. But all that's changed thanks to the brand-new Pressed Juicery, a juice bar that is quickly becoming Hollywood's hottest—and tastiest—healthy obsession for slimming down and shaping up. Nestled in the adorable Brentwood Town Center, owners Hayden Slater, Carly Brien, and Hedi Gores are bringing fresh-pressed organic juices to the City of Angels, and the timing couldn't be more perfect. Whether you're cleansing in anticipation of your marathon Holiday feasts, trying lose a few pounds before you squeeze into your favorite party dress, or just want to purge some excess toxins, this easy-to-follow cleanse system and juice bar has everything you could want. The benefits of cleansing are well known—hydration, improved digestion, blood oxygenation—but the best part of this cleanse is that you won't feel deprived, and after three days you may even experience a brighter complexion, sharper mental focus, and more energy than usual (at least that was our experience!). With insanely delicious recipes like Apple Lemon Extra Ginger, Carrot Coconut, fortifying and protein-rich Almond Milk, Chlorophyll Water, Aloe Vera Water, and an array of Green Juices and Detox mixes, it's not surprising that health-conscious fanatics all over L.A. are heading over to Pressed Juicery to indulge. Just be sure to call ahead, or check out their site to reserve your cleanse now. Or better yet, skip the latté and stop by to pick up a little liquid pick-me-up.
