Let’s JUICE it UP!

Cafe_Group_EditBy Laurel Sterling, MA, RD

The nutritional benefits of juicing are immense. Juicing can pack a tremendous amount of nutrients in just one delicious cup. Fresh juice, not from a bottle or concentrate, is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, proteins, and so much more!

Because juice is assimilated with very little effort from the digestive system, the body can easily make use of all the nutrition it offers. Juicing combined with a nutritious and balanced diet is ideal.

So whether your health is at a low point right now or even if you are feeling very healthy, juicing is excellent for your health and energy. This is a great gift you can give to your body all year-round!

Here at Natur-Tyme’s Tyme-Out Café, we have several great ones to choose from:

  • CNY Yogi is a very refreshing drink. It’s a perfect choice for its cooling and detoxifying properties. Rich in nutrients that aid the body in ridding excess fluids as well as toxins, what a great choice for someone who is looking for a jumpstart on cleansing!
  • Lightening Bug is rich in antioxidants, and loaded with vitamin C. This is a wonderful choice any time of the year due to its immune-enhancing properties!
  • Popeye’s Punch is a great option for those looking to decrease systemic inflammation. This is in part due to the alkalinity of the fruits and herbs within. This is another one I love!
  • Ginger-Snap is packed full of vitamin A, which enhances immunity, and with the addition of warming ginger, it has an added benefit of being anti-inflammatory as well.
  • The Blue-Green Elixir is filled with minerals, antioxidants, and also protein from the algae. This elixir can assist with energy as well as immunity.
  • Transfusion is a power-packed juice! This combo of fruits, veggies, and spices will give your body a transfusion of several nutrients to aid in cleansing, detoxifying, and decreasing inflammation. This one is my personal favorite!
  • Re-Fresh is a lovely cooling and cleansing drink that assists in detoxifying as well as having diuretic properties. A perfect juice choice in the summer to cool down! The simplicity of this juice appeals to many juicing novices.
  • Wheatgrass is a very rich nutritional food that is filled with vitamins, mineral, and trace elements. According to Dr. Anne Wigmore, founder of Hippocrates Health Institute, one pound of wheatgrass is equal in nutritional value to 25 pounds of choice vegetables. Come in and try one of our wheatgrass shots!
  • This warming Ginger shot can assist in digestion, decreasing inflammation, cleansing, and alkalizing the body. What more can you ask for in one shot! This is great during those long cold winter months we have here in Syracuse.

So come in, sit down, relax, and try one of our juice combo drinks or juice shots. You will be sure to fall in love with them! Enjoy!

Warm up at the Tyme-Out Café with Mexican Hot Chocolate

By Deborah SorrentinoChocolateCayenneBlog

These cold winter months of shivers and chills spark our instincts to turn to warm, delicious beverages. May we recommend Tyme-Out Café’s Mexican Hot Chocolate?

Our version of this beverage is not just another pretty taste. There is a therapeutic method to our madness.

The key components of our recipe are raw cacao powder, maple syrup, cinnamon, and last but not least, cayenne pepper.

Raw cacao, the darkest of dark chocolates, is rich in magnesium, and one of the world’s best sources of antioxidants.

Not all sweeteners are created equal. Maple syrup contains polyphenols, antioxidants that quell inflammation, which is linked to a slew of health conditions from cancer to arthritis.

Obtained from the inner bark of several trees in the genus, cinnamon, is a spice used in both sweet and savory recipes. Chinese medicine and Ayurveda have long revered cinnamon as a superpower used to treat things such as colds, indigestion, and cramps and also believed to improve energy, vitality, and circulation. One-half teaspoon of cinnamon daily can lower LDL (bad cholesterol). It has an anti-clotting effect on the blood. Cinnamon can also help stabilize blood sugar, which helps with weight loss. A couple of dashes in your morning cereal or beverage are all it takes! When added to food, it acts as an inhibitor of bacterial growth and food spoilage. Just smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory.

Cayenne pepper is somewhat of a miracle ingredient. Cayenne may have the ability to ease stomach upset, ulcers, sore throats, spasmodic and irritating coughs, and diarrhea. It aids in breaking up and moving congested mucus. Once mucus begins to leave the body, relief from cold and flu symptoms generally follows. Cayenne may aid in the prevention of migraine headaches. This may be related to the pepper’s ability to stimulate a pain response in a different area of the body, thus redirecting the brain’s attention to the new site. Cayenne’s anti-inflammatory properties make it a great herb for arthritis, diabetes, psoriasis, and herpes-related nerve damage. It is also credited with stimulating the production of saliva, an important key to excellent digestion and optimal oral health.

With all of these benefits hidden in a rich and deeply delicious drink, could you ask for anything more? Indulge yourself with a Mexican Hot Chocolate and know you are doing something wonderfully beneficial for your body and soul.

The Tyme-Out Café: Healthy Never Tasted so Good

By Deborah Sorrentinocafe

Healthy never tasted so good! The menu at Nature-Tyme’s Tyme-Out Café will blow the roof off all your misconceptions if you think that nutritional juices and smoothies must sacrifice flavor in order to be beneficial.

Our juices are made to order with the freshest ingredients. Our recipes combine fruits and yes, vegetables, resulting in the most delicious medleys that will tantalize your pallet and energize your body. Imagine sweet beets juiced with apples, pineapple, and ginger resulting in a fuchsia-colored concoction that is oh-so-good for your heart and circulatory system. Or our CNY Yogi, a special combination of cucumber, celery, parsley, apple, lemon, and kale that’s perfect for its cooling and detoxifying properties.

Our smoothies are like milkshakes for the soul!  Where else can you find such a sweet interpretation of old favorites like our Nutty Monkey, Banana Berry, or Tropicolada?  Our healthy recipes include nut butters that we make in-house, frozen organic fruits, your choice of dairy milks, nut milks, soy, rice, or coconut dairy alternatives, flax seed, coconut manna, and so much more. We offer a variety of boosts we can gladly recommend such as protein powders, raw maca, goji berries, and chia seeds, to name but a few. These make wonderful meal replacements for those who want to make healthy choices even as we travel through the busy world we live in.
