Keeping It Healthy On The Emerald Coast...Local Juice and "Smoothie Operators"

  • Posted on

Maybe she’s born with it…or maybe it’s juice! We all know that fruits and vegetables contain anti-aging properties, but many of those found in smoothies and juices, which are high in Vitamin C, will help you maintain a responsive and healthy immune system. After all, the last thing you want is a cold or virus while enjoying your beach vacation.


Let's face it, the fried seafood selections, donuts and ice cream selections are amazing in these parts and can be a shock to the system of those with a routinely healthy diet. Sometimes we just need to balance the vacation lifestyle choices with some healthy nutritious antioxidants and organic fuel!


If you are staying on the Emerald Coast at “Livin’ The Dream” ( be sure to check out some of the local farmer’s markets or get your own produce from “For The Health of It” (listed below) or The Fresh Market (4495 Commons Dr. W. Panama City Beach) and blend up your own nutritious innovations with the Nutra Ninja Auto IQ Pro blender provided for our special guests.


If you'd rather a local smoothie/juice barista whip up your heathly treat... here’s a few local “Smoothie Operators” who can conveniently keep you supplied with those daily doses of fruits and veggies.
