It’s no surprise that trying different healthy products is one of our favorite things to do here at Wellington Group Marketing & PR. Last week, we hit up Snap Kitchen to grab a quick lunch and found ourselves completely distracted by all the delicious cold-pressed juices staring back at us. We had no idea which one to buy because they all sounded so great!

After mulling over our choices, we decided on the Energy Boost, a juicy combination of lime, papaya, watermelon, mint and coconut water. As if we weren’t excited enough to taste this refreshing drink, one of Snap Kitchen’s awesome employees offered us a complimentary Easy Greens juice made of apple, spinach, cucumber, kale, lemon, and lemongrass. They were absolutely delicious!

The Energy Boost had us reminiscing of summertime and the Easy Greens filled us with nutritious veggies while still tasting great. We loved them so much, in fact, the team has made a very important decision to try Snap Kitchen’s Spicy Basil Lemonade and Chai Cashew “Milkshake” very soon. So, next time you need a little afternoon pick-me-up, head to one of Snap Kitchen’s seven locations in Austin – you’ll be in juice heaven!

What’s better than a refreshing beverage on a hot summer day? A refreshing beverage that’s actually good for you, that’s what. The ladies of Wellington Group Marketing & PR are all about finding the latest and greatest health trends, and these yummy drinks certainly make our cup runneth over. So, the next time you are in need a post-workout boost or are just plain thirsty, ditch the soda and grab one of these healthy drinks! Trust us, you’ll be glad you did.
