LAKEVIEW — The coastal juice trend is headed to Lakeview
and the husband-and-wife team behind City Harvest Cafe swears by the health benefits of their all-organic, cold-pressed juices.
Angela and Anthony Maicki are opening City Harvest Cafe, 2931 N. Broadway, this spring with recipes that they developed over the last two years after drinking juice that helped the couple manage personal illnesses.
"I just believe food can heal, and food should be a medicine," she said. "We want to share that with other people."
Juicing has become popular as an easy way for people eat big servings of fruits and vegetables, and the Maickis aren't the only ones to swear by its healing benefits. Doctorsstill recommend including whole fruits and vegetables as part of a diet for fiber, and the benefits of juice cleanses have been questioned.
The Maickis acknowledge that people cannot live on juice alone.
But they swear by the benefits of an occasional cleanse — "Hey, I did it, and I got healed immediately," Anthony said — so they will be selling juice cleanse packages for $45 a day, which include five juices.
