In our Take 3 healthy living edition, we present an insane new Juicer that has techies and foodies buzzing. A beloved organic marketplace that saves you time and money and an app that almost guarantees you stick to your diet on the road.
1. The simplest, tastiest way to juice this side of Silicon Valley – Juicero
You’ve got your Keurig. You’ve got your Vitamix. Make space for the ultimate in juicing machines – The Juicero. The buzzed about Juicero provides a soup to nuts solution to juicing. Meaning, it provides you with the produce you need (without all the cutting and washing), the high tech machinery and eliminates the clean up that you know and dread about juicing through its savvy packaging system. Yes, for juicing fans like me, this. is. insane. Backed by Google Ventures and $100m in venture funding, it is currently available in California only, the $699 (!!!) device is available for sale online now. The individual juicing packets, sourced from local, organic farmers, are convenient pouches – running about $7/ a pop – that you simply place inside your device much like a Keurig pod. Press start on the device and then within minutes you have a fresh, 80z glass of juice.

2. Order up healthy, organic eats to your doorstep with Thrive Market, the affordable, organic grocer now in the Android App Store
Used Thrive Market before? If you haven’t you’re missing out. An online shopping club, Thrive sells everything organic for 25-50% off retail prices and it ships right to your door. Get everything from coconut oil to vitamins and pet food via the easy to use and get sucked into Thrive App. The membership can pay for itself ($5/mo or $59.95/year) and there’s free shipping for orders over $49. Via the app, shop for thousands of organic products by category (vegan, baking, Paleo, etc) or by product name. You can save shopping lists and even get free gifts like free Thrive Market products (compensates for the lack of free samples at the grocery store you’re missing out on). The app had been available on iOS and now is newly launched on Android. A nice perk is that memberships are made free to low-income individuals, via the Thrive Gives program which gives a free membership with every paid one. The company is backed by some recognizable names too, if that matters to you. Sofia Vergara, Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra, Blake Mycoskie (of TOMS Shoes), Gary Hirshberg (of Stonyfield Farms).
