At this time of year, it's about working extra hard to fight the
hibernation urges, particularly when it comes to diet. Hot buttered
toast vs an apple? Well exactly.
But someone who's out to make sure we get our 5-a-day is Amy
Terry with her new Canyon Juicery bar at the Joseph shop in Notting
Hill. Born and bred in LA ("I grew up in Benedict Canyon and was a
little homesick when thinking up a name for the company"), Terry
also spent time in New York before moving to London in February
this year. "Juicing's become such a big part of my life," she
explains, "And I was bummed there wasn't much choice here in terms
So Terry adhered to the adage, 'if you want a thing done well,
do it yourself', and set up Canyon Juicery, providing raw, cold
pressed juices using up to 2kg of fresh-as-you-like organic fruit
and veg per bottle. Alongside the regulars, eg. kale, apple,
coconut water, Terry also slips in curious ingredients including
stevia, Himalayan salt, lavender and fennel, with specific juices
concocted to help with ailments including colds, puffiness or
festive season over-indulgence.
And as of this week, Canyon Juicery will deliver (in London) to
your home or office. So winter or not, there's no excuse for
not ingesting your vitamins.
p.s. try a juice called 'Levitate' - a mix of coconut, apple and
cinnamon - delicious.
