New York City, New York, a blizzard leaves the city empty. Causing such a frenzy shoppers are buying more than bread, milk and toilet paper. Since Hurricane Sandy, this is the most extreme shopping rush for staple products. Everything from tequila to bagels and lox are flying off the shelves. People are thinking ahead, if we lose electricity, what will I want this week, what will I want for the Super Bowl. Consumers also seem concerned about keeping the lights on and staying warm. Duraflame logs, firewood and propane are good things to have on hand. Stores are sold out of eggs, bread, milk and other staple items as delivery trucks are not on the roads. What to do, make sure you are warm and have water and food. Then kick back and enjoy the peace and quiet that you are experiencing. This is what it is like to be out at sea fishing, time to think. It’s been a long time since NYC has had a bit of silence, hopefully the power goes out and you can light a candle, pour a glass of wine and relax with a book or two.
A great way to detox and cleanse your body is to do a juice fasting, or juice cleansing. I juice everyday, yet I do at least one day fast a week, only fresh juice that I make myself so I know what is going in. The longer you’re juice fasting, the deeper the cleanse becomes, you can do three to five days before or after the holidays. What happens is, the toxins that could be endogenous to the cells release into the blood stream, move through to the liver, and are released in normal waste functions. In longer cleanses, other waste gasses throughout the body look for the easiest means out, through bowel movements, urine, farts, belches, tears… Inflammation throughout the body is the build up of waste and causes pain and will lead to illness.
If you don’t have a juicer, you can go to many places to buy fresh juice, New York has a great place called Juice Press they have over 20 locations in New York and they ship everywhere in the USA. Everyday I am in NYC I go to Juice Press for a Mother Earth and a Volcano, a great way to stay on the juice when your traveling.

First impressions I loved that it was very clean and a simple menu, also organic grown beans that make a great cup of coffee. We enjoyed a cup of Ralph’s Coffee and a pastry, regular drip coffee $3.00 and they only have one size so no lines no indecisive consumers. You can get a latte or cappuccino for $4.50, and you can buy the Ralph’s Coffee beans to take home. We tried a few pastries and special sandwiches are featured daily.
Helping to market Ralph’s Coffee will be a retro style food truck, selling Ralph’s Coffee and an assortment of pastries. Enjoy a cup of Ralph’s Coffee.
