3 Juice Bars in Paris

Your Body Will Thank You For

 

Although you may think of Paris as the go-to city for indulgence, for pastries, red wine and cheese, there might just come a time when you feel in need of something a little bit lighter (yes, really!).

When that happens, the City of Light has it covered: simply hit one of the nearby juice bars and top up your 5-a-day levels of tasty fruits, vegetables and vitamins in one delicious swoop.

Here are a few of our favourite places to try

Bob’s Juice Bar

Sitting pretty in the heart of Paris’ most bohemian neighbourhood, Bob’s Juice Bar is the place to head for all the vitamin replenishment your heart desires. Offering a fine selection of freshly blended juices and smoothies alongside a super healthy vegetarian lunch menu, Bob’s Juice Bar may be small, but it’s perfectly formed. Image source

Top tip: The bar is just a stone’s throw away from nearby Canal Saint-Martin, so why not grab a juice to enjoy whilst overlooking the tranquil water?

Juice It

The idea for Juice It sprouted after owner Charlotte Rouah returned from seven years spent in New York City. Whilst living in the Big Apple, Rouah got hooked on more than just the city’s nickname, developing a passion for all things fruit and veg. Noticing the one thing missing from the streets of Paris, Juice It was born and has been providing Parisians with a dose of the healthy stuff ever since. Image source

Top tip: Juice It is handily located right in the 1st arrondissement. The Paris you know from the pictures, the 1st arrondissement is home to all the big names of the city and is the ultimate place to watch the world go by as you enjoy a little boost of vitality.

Bojus

If you find yourself feeling a bit like a human chunk of baked camembert after a few days of over-indulgence in Paris, then never fear! Head on over to rue de Montmorency where you’ll find BoJus. Here, you’ll have a choice of four different detox and cleanse programmes, ranging from a one day boost of goodness to a full-on five day cleanse. Trust us when we say that you’ll be feeling as good as new in no time at all! Image source

Top tip: BoJus is in the heart of Le Marais, a neighbourhood of Paris known for its medieval streets and labyrinth of vintage boutiques and second-hand bookshops. It’s a great area of Paris to base your hotel, experiencing the city as it once was.

  • How far would you risk to get to where you want to go? 
KYOTO, JAPAN: Each of the famous torii shrine gates has been donated by an individual or a Japanese business in the hope of receiving good luck and fortune. The name of the donor is inscribed in black ink on the back of each gate.
  • Today I met someone who didn’t know her self worth and it left me with a heavy heart. She admitted she wished for a lot of things and dreamed of accomplishing all her NY resolutions. 
It reminded me of a story I read how we tend to create a big gap between expectations and reality and we cannot see it. How young women daydream for a perfect life and compare themselves with stuff such as ‘body goals’ or ‘couple goals’ rather be known for their accomplishments and how smart one can be. 
It made me realize how much we always have to remember to be kind to ourselves and practice love. It’s an easy thing to ‘be yourself’ but quite another thing to know who you truly are. 
I hope you stop counting your mistakes and stop torturing yourself with regret. I hope you love so strong, where you will always find the courage to say the things you wanted to say. I hope you never ever have to compare yourself to anyone but keep growing into the strong, smart and beautiful woman you are. 💫
  • This isn’t the ‘perfect instagram picture’ but I was never one to post for the number of ‘likes’.
Every picture I post on instagram is because it has a story behind it, and... an unforgettable memory. I didn’t even realize @dennisstever was taking a photo of me, and, to be honest, I think it might have been a fluke, because, if you were on that zodiac with us, you would understand how maintaining our balance was our first priority, otherwise it would have been be a dip in the freezing arctic waters. 
We anchored our sailboat in the middle of nowhere, they call it the arctic wilderness, miles away from tromso’s port. We took the zodiac to reach an uninhabited island and all I could remember, was the water level at my boots, and I was holding on to 3 camera bags and equipments and remember asking Dennis to repeatedly say “If MICHELLE falls off, save her cameras first” 😂
I’ve asked him so many times to acknowledge the fact that I’ve given him full permission to save my equipment first before anything else, and it just makes me laugh so hard on how far I am willing to go to save my gear. 
This photo reminds me of life. The adrenaline rush, the subzero temperature winds at the break of dawn, the unknown, the love, the risks we take, the crazy decisions we make in life and for our passion, in my case, it’s my love for photography. 
Can’t wait to return in two weeks on a @travelwithtjd 💫
  • It wasn’t so long ago when I made this dream a reality. Over a year ago, I made it to Harads in Sweden while driving, crossing the borders from Finland. One of the most incredible experiences of my life. This is the UFO at Tree Hotel. What you don’t see, is the incredible views of the Lule River valley and miles and miles of unspoiled forest lands. ❤️
  • Felt on top of the world...
Can you guess where in Portugal this was taken 2 years ago?
  • A week ago, I was walking barefoot on an island 🌴... Today, I’m recovering from the flu in bed... and in a couple of days I’ll be back to winter mode ❄️. How is your weekend looking so far? 😊
  • Truth: A lot of you question how I have things figured out... it’s far from the truth. I promise. 
The truth is, I take risks in the things I believe in, personally and my business life... and learned not to try and overthink when making the decision, because I remind myself how hard I worked for my career and passion to come together. 
I take risks not because I’m brave, but because I really believe that it could be SO good when it works out, or when a project I pitched for succeeds... I look back and realize how far I have come and remember thinking that things were such a mess I would never recover. 
I have never led an ‘ordinary life’ nor a life that would suit everyone maybe...but that is the only life I love despite the sleepless nights working and my heart racing all the time. “That’s the sleepless life of an entrepreneur” they say. 
I am determined to be the best of what I only believe I can be, even when I may lack in other things or even when I fall... But my life is about breaking my own limits and not let the outside noise affect my judgments. That’s how I make it through... 💕
  • Here is a little bit on how this picture was taken... As drones are strictly not allowed @sixsenseslaamu - I had to find a way to climb on the roof patio and hook my camera  on a balcony pole so it doesn’t get blown away or fall right into the pool. 
When I finally thought I had the settings set on and the camera hooked properly, I ran down the stairs, out the backdoor, into the front door of the pool deck and sat there with my remote control. The sun’s light has increased slightly then and my settings were all wrong again 🤦🏼‍♀️, if you were my Neighbour, you would see a crazy lady, with her hat flying away, running up and down the roof top. 
Luckily, my remote’s connection to my camera and the light was finally set and I took the shot. Then I just sat there. Watching the sky turning from pink, to orange to clear blue. 
Only then, I realized my camera was still hanging ever so lightly... so, pulled myself together and rushed back on the rooftop. 😊 That’s the story 🌴
  • I worked out what would make me happy, and I worked out what I wanted to do, and I trained myself to do the job that would make those two things happen. ‘You make it sound so simple...’ Everyone said 
It is simple...The thing is, it's also a lot of hard work. And people don't want to put in a lot of work. But I didn't get here simply by wishing for it.
  • The view from my beautiful water villa @sixsenseslaamu 🌊 Happy Sunday everyone!
  • Welcome to the Maldivian Jungle 🌊🌴Escaped for a long weekend to dive, tan, eat and learn all about the sustainability projects together with @sixsenseslaamu and @travel4apurpose - this has to be one of the most beautiful beach front villa I’ve seen. Are you a water villa or beach villa lover?
  • Legend says that there is an intangible string of fate that binds two souls destined to be together... Whether as best friends, lovers or two crossing paths.
Those connected are bound no matter of time, place or circumstance.
The red string of fate is derived from an ancient East Asian belief. According to this myth, the Gods tie a red string around the ankles of those that are destined to meet each other or help each other in a certain way.
And so, no matter how near or far you are from the person, the thread remains. 
There will be times when mentally or physically, you feel distant from the person, but that doesn’t affect the thread that binds you two together. 
If you feel that with a lover, friend, or someone you just met... take a minute to remember what you just read and always be kind to one another. 💫
