The Juicy Fix was the dream that Minni Balita wished would come alive one day, but never knew when to act on it, until a couple of years ago.
Diagnosed with diabetes at age 40, Minni understood that she needed to make changes to her diet. Her husband and co-owner of The Juicy Fix, bought a juicer to make homemade juices for her that consisted of various fruit and vegetable combinations that one would think wouldn't go well together but did. After a month of detoxing her body through these juices, Minni started noticing positive changes to her body and other people started noticing too! She had lost a healthy and significant amount of weight and she felt rejuvenated from the inside and out!
Minni is a dedicated registered nurse. Working at hospitals for 22 years, she noticed that more and more people, especially young people, are being placed in the intensive care units for health issues that she believes could have been prevented and possibly cured with a healthy diet. Although she agrees that working as a nurse is a very fulfilling job, she still felt like she needed to do more to help people, thus she knew it was time for her dream to become a reality.
"The kinds of food I put in my body made such a difference to my health and overall well-being, and I just want other people to feel this beautiful difference too!"
I'm like another mom to my customers, but I don't just tell them to eat their vegetables, I make the vegetables taste good!
The Juicy Fix is Minni's way of preventive nursing, which is a nurse's responsibility to inform people on how to prevent future illnesses by promoting a healthy and holistic lifestyle. "The kinds of food I put in my body made such a difference to my health and overall well-being, and I want other people to feel this beautiful difference too!"
Minni explains that the working class people are often too busy to prepare their own healthy homemade food, and that's where The Juicy Fix comes in. The Juicy Fix prides itself in being healthy and homemade . "We make the healthy food, so the busy people don't have to! Some people have told me that I'm like another mom to customers, but I don't just tell them to eat their vegetables, I make the vegetables taste good!" Minni shares. The Juicy Fix isn't just another juice and smoothie shop, they use real, raw, fresh, organic ingredients, and serve healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes. Minni states how there aren't many restaurants that not only offer healthier options, but also advocate for and motivate people to transition into a healthier lifestyle. The Juicy Fix satisfies this gap.
