Before this happened I saw a sign promoting a late breakfast from 10:00 – 15:00 during my Bootcamp sessions. What a …

The Smoothie Company

During my trip I was a regular costumer at Joe and the Juice, I tried all the juices on the menu. Really I did! It was a complete detox city trip and I came back with an (un)healthy addiction for …
