Juicing in the Capital City

By  | 

The new trendy health craze; Juicing. It has given a busy and health conscious generation a quick way to benefit from fruits and vegetables. However, juicing can be a bit of a tedious process if you are short on time. While there are large arrays of juicers on the market, the effort it takes to clean up after juicing can be time consuming and hard to balance with a busy lifestyle.

Columbus, Ohio now has a new healthy alternative to typical mealtime fare for those who enjoy fresh organic juice, yet are short on time. Poised in the heart of Downtown Columbus, PurePressed Organic Juicery opened its doors to the public on in April 2015. Located at 194 S.
