Juicing has come a long way since Jamba Juice first hit the blenders.  Now, it’s become a lifestyle choice with Pressed Juicery as a front runner of the trend.  First opened in 2009 by three friends in a tiny storefront in the Brentwood Country Mart, Pressed Juicery has since made a speedy expansion to West Hollywood, Downtown LA (Cooper Bldg), Malibu, as a roaming truck and most recently to Studio City (13033B Ventura Blvd, next to Il Trammezino and Le Pain Quotidien.)  These juices are personalized to your lifestyle, made fresh and packaged daily. Pick them up in store or order them for delivery.   The juices are based in roots, greens and fruits with a variety of price options for cleansing, kits and packages.

Panera Bread® is having a Sandwich Showdown contest.  The winner will be awarded $10,000, free bagels for a year, $500 in Panera Bread® gift cards and the sandwich will be on the menu for a limited time at participating Panera Bread® bakery-cafes nationwide.  Now through October 6, submit your original sandwich recipes online at www.TLC.com/Panera .  It’s all created on an interactive virtual sandwich builder using Panera ingredients.  After all submissions are received, Panera Bread will narrow the field to the top 20 entries. The public will then be invited to vote online to determine the grand prize winner.
