Health in check at Juiceria Juice Bar Cebu

I wish I could say my diet was healthy, but if I'm being completely honest, my diet consists of McDonald's, Starbucks and... more Starbucks.

So, how on earth did I end up at Juiceria, a healthy juice bar that serves vegan food? Was it because I finally realized my health levels were at an embarrassing low? Partly, yes, but mostly because of the interior because MY GOD JUICERIA HAS THE PRETTIEST AESTHETIC EVER, and if you know me, you know I'm easily drawn to pretty places.

Conveniently located across a gym at Bonifacio District in Cebu, Juiceria is an aesthetically pleasing juice bar that's perfect for both lovers of healthy food and lovers of Instagrammable spots. Walking inside for the first time, one will immediately feel refreshed from Juiceria's peach-toned walls, tiled white tables and vibrant potted plants. The place feels very clean overall, which is fitting, since Juiceria is supposed to cleanse you of your unhealthy eating habits.

Although Juiceria is generally enjoyed by health buffs, it's still a good place to chill, meet with friends, study and work. See those books above the seats? Those are free to read, and Juiceria's taste in books is pretty impressive. You'll find lots of interesting books on design, self-help and (of course) healthy food. Laptop users will also be glad to find that there are charging spots almost everywhere. 

I used to think that healthy food, specifically vegan food, tasted terrible, but turns out I was completely wrong. I ordered a Blossom Berry Smoothie (strawberries, banana, chia, almond milk), Good Ol' PB & J (homemade peanut butter, tomato jam, banana, honey, chia seeds), and Detox Bowl (matcha, almond milk, banana, granola) and liked all of them, especially the smoothie. The peanut butter and jelly sandwich tasted weird at first because it was on activated charcoal sourdough bread, but I eventually learned to love its taste. Their food choices will definitely taste foreign to people who aren't used to healthy food, but they're excellent introductions to healthy eating. 

Juiceria also sells bottled juices for people on-the-go. They come in super cute reusable bottles, too. Check out Juiceria's complete menu here.

I never thought I'd try vegan food, but I did, and I kind of liked it. Don't get me wrong; I still wouldn't trade my fries for kale chips, but hey... at least I now know that healthy living is possible if I just fully commit myself to it.
