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

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.

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.
