In Vancouver, we know our juice! We are lucky to have some of the best juice bars in the Canada to keep our cold-pressed habit happy. With the holiday season finally here, it is just as important as ever to include juice in your diet, so we are sharing the top 5 best juice bars in Vancouver. Not only does juice help to boost the immune system during the tough cold and flu season, but the high concentration of nutrients aids in detoxing your body if you had a few too many cocktails at the office party. For those of us who overindulge come December (who can say no to office cookies?!), a juice or two a day can help maintain an active metabolism to guide us through that turkey comma.
