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.

  • 7 days in Iceland and it was never enough! I can happily stay a lifetime here exploring and shooting. 
On our @travelwithtjd Iceland Series, we spent a couple of nights at @radissonblu1919 exploring Reykjavik during the day and the long nights!!
The rest of the week we spent on the road in different guest houses exploring many waterfalls, lagoons, volcanic landscapes, black beaches and tasted the Icelandic cuisine. 
We have few spaces left for our next @travelwithtjd trip in April 2020! Get in touch if you like to join us 😊#TravelwithTJD #CreateYourReality
  • Iceland was everything I ever hoped it would be. Our @travelwithtjd Mini Series in Iceland started with 10 incredible strangers and ended with new friendships. We’ve spent a week exploring the best of Iceland - sharing memories and lots of laughter. If you like to join our next TJD Iceland Series in April, get in touch, we still have very few spaces left! #TravelwithTJD #CreateYourReality
  • The older I get, the more I love the value of privacy, of cultivating your circle and only letting certain people in. You can be open, honest, and real while still understanding that not everyone deserves a seat at the table of your life... I hope you find someone who is always real with you, and a place where the chaos inside is understood-whether you are searching for them or not. Day 1 Iceland on our @travelwithtjd 💫
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. Most of the time, when I feel I’ve lost my alignment, it’s usually a reminder on how I need to take better care of me, and not be so hard on myself. 💫
  • Sometimes, I’m terrified of my heart, of its constant hunger for great things in this beautiful world. The way it stops & starts...
  • Would you go to furthermost place on earth? 
I’m so excited to announce our 5th destination release on @travelwithtjd 
Join us on the 1st-6th of May 2020 to the Northernmost Settlement on earth and explore the Norwegian archipelago between mainland Norway and the North Pole on an Arctic expedition. In this packed polar journey, we have the chance to encounter some arctic wildlife, Kayaking into the glorious glaciers, snowmobiling into the earth’s depends fjords, enjoy husky safari, taste the culinary Arctic experience and learn so much about our beautiful planet.
Few tips on the trip: 
During May, it will be the start of the midnight sun, and so, the sun will not set below the horizon
As flights on our packages are not included, I always suggest to find the best flight deals through @wegoarabia which will give you a range of flights to chose from, matches your budget and connecting flights
Please get in touch if you would like to join this expedition, also, keep in mind that you will need a certain fitness level to join. 
Due to safety circumstances, we can only have 6 guests in one group.

  • Svalbard is a Norwegian archipelago between mainland Norway and the North Pole. The archipelago is composed of nine main islands. 
We visited Pyramiden, 2 hours by boat from longyearbyen, and known as a Soviet Ghost Town, an abandoned Russians coal mine settlement sold to the Soviet Union back in 1927. When we arrived, they told us that they have seen few polar bears around and so had to stay close. 
Barentsburg, the second largest settlement in Svalbard with about 450 inhabitants, mostly, also, Russians... Some of the other islands have amongst scientist and researchers. Needless to say, Longyearbyen is the northernmost capital on earth.
I also want to thank the team at @arcticexpedition.no who were so incredible with us, it wouldn’t have been the same without them, despite me being a little afraid of walking out, they assured our safety ☺️ Make sure you join us on our next @travelwithtjd in May to Svalbard once again!#TravelwithTJD
  • With thousands of years of history frozen in time, the Arctic, for me, is as a place where we can freeze our former selves and visualize what we can achieve what’s found in stories,  books and inspiring people that made it this far. 
It’s just you, the land, and your thoughts, and you can't leave until you've wrestled with yourself and emerged a survivor. 
But then again, the light is much more intense up here and everything looks different because of it. The sun hasn’t set in a couple of months, and you can see things much more clearly when it is light all of the time. 
I’m addicted to the Arctic, it has been so for the past two years as @dennisstever and I set a mission to work together to conquer it on @travelwithTJD 
Thanks to @dennisstever for capturing this moment.
Thank you to the wonderful team @arcticexpedition.no for making this a memorable experience ❤️
  • Im at the Earth’s northernmost inhabited settlement and I made this happen!!
A Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. Svalbard is home to the ‘King of the Arctic’, which is the Polar Bear, followed by whales, Arctic Fox, Birds, Seals, Walrus and Reindeers. Svalbard is 600 miles away from the North Pole, the farthest place on earth I have ever been. This is not a dream...I created this beautiful reality. #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd @visitsvalbard
  • I’m not sure I can’t explain in words exactly how I felt at that moment. Right, scratch that... I can, because I froze. 
In so many ways. 
Ive always felt that my moods could be best explained in photos (and music) and that’s why I’m drawn to photography because it allows me to portray what’s going on inside when words fail. 
@dennisstever and I spent a week in Finland for the midnight sun, exploring the summer season. He probably took a thousand shots of this moment and encouraged me to keep going despite the cold waves splashing on me. 
But, I’m thankful, because, after a while, the cold numbed me, so I caught my breath, looked around and realized how F*** amazing it is to feel alive!
  • Often, I am noticing more and more on social media highlighting what society identifies as their body flaws and how we are beautiful and ordinary because of it, categorizing it as ‘empowerment’. I’m all for positivity but, I feel it’s giving mixed signals and it’s becoming repetitive, focusing on body goals. Again. 
Loving yourself, or accepting yourself doesn’t start with just accepting your body or its ‘flaws’, that’s not how we become ‘ordinary’, and the constant focus on bodies is directing the false message, denoting how our looks comes first and preaching about it (constantly)is not ordinary. 
Whatever happened to beauty from within? Or education? 
Are we truly loving ourselves if we put our body ‘flaws’ constantly out there on social media waiting again, for others to approve and congratulate you?
Is that not just promoting more “What’s on the outside counts more than what’s on the inside?”
Acceptance and beauty is deeper than that, because, surely, a body’s ‘ordinary’ image, is not solely what we should or should not be celebrating. 
Imperfections comes from the inside... Our actions, reactions, our weaknesses, strengths, our challenges and triumphs, our anxieties.
Loving oneself is accepting our heart and mind’s inability to function today but still give tomorrow another chance. 
We are beautiful for how we make others feel, for being there for one another, for lifting each other, for forgiving, for loyalty, for being there for your children, for your family, for strangers and for those around you and definitely not because we have or have not accepted our bodies and those around us. 
Whoever you are... our ‘imperfections’ in our souls are what makes ordinary and learning to accept it, is what makes you beautiful, and that is what we need to be sharing. 
So let’s highlight what’s on the inside, instead of just purely focusing on the outside. Because, that’s the only way we can truly love ourself, and not by perfect or imperfect bodies.
