Last night I hosted an event called "Naked Juice" for my sororities Total Body Takeover Week; continuing the "eat healthy/be fit" motif that most of us were on full throttle before spring break. Our hope, was to inspire people to continue that strive for good health. To help us inspire people to do this, we invited guests from the community to come out and speak about healthy eating and their own personal experiences with weight loss.
One of our guests was Nick from The Weekly Juicery here in Lexington. This juice bar, tucked away off Old Vine Street, creates fresh, all natural, cold pressed juices and specialty smoothies.
Created about a year ago by owner Kimmye Bohannon and her business partner Elizabeth Beal, the juicery buys all local products and hopes to encourage their consumers to try something new and entice their taste buds with some of their juices and meals.

I personally visited the store about two weeks ago and spoke with Caroline, who was so sweet and helpful throughout my questions and inquiries. I'd never tried "juicing" before, so the concept itself was completely foreign to me, but she talked me through the process and even let me try out a few samples!
The juice I liked is the one shown both above and below, The Felon Melon.
All the products are made fresh daily and are kept in a fridge! The all glass bottles are trendy and convenient for juicing on the go!
The Weekly Juicery also sells t-shirs and additional products to help promote their brand!
The Weekly Juicery also creates salads and wraps like the one pictured below. The lettuce wrap that I tried was delicious; undeniably fresher than a lot of the things that I typically consume, so it was a nice change!
