The past years have been challenging in ways I never could have anticipated. Launching and growing a nationally certified wholesale program under these circumstances has been particularly tricky considering the supply chain hang ups, shipping delays, labor shortages and rising costs of, well, everything - as well as the pandemic related closures that frequently affect our wholesale partners.
My personal intention this year is to shift my perspective and embrace the abundance in our world byapplying this new mindset to energy, finance, and opportunity. I intend to accomplish this by adopting a similar perspective of these items to the perspective I have of love. That is: limitless, bountiful, pure and good. We can gain all the love we can dream of by sharing it with others.
What we sought to build in 2013 was a small and reliable institution of easily accessible nutrition and products that promote wellness; void of any overly personal, political, religious or organized affiliation. The premise is that there are plenty of things in this world that drive people apart. Let our juice be one thing that can bring people together in the uncompromised name of health. Let the product speak for itself.
As the owner and operator of a cold pressed juicery, it’s no secret that I drink a lot of juice. So when I travel, one of the first questions is “where will I get my juice fix?” This results in what I like to call “juice tourism.” As juicing becomes more common and the benefits are more widely recognized, juice spots are popping up left and right. The Big Island of Hawaii is no exception, and while I was there I did my best to try them all. Here's a round up of my favorite spots.
I remember the phases of realization... first I learned how important breathe was in my overall function as a yogi (and as a human).
Then I learned that, depending on the day, my body didn’t always have the same flexibility, comfort or strength. Some days I could ease right into a certain posture, while the very next day that posture would be a challenge.
When we launched The Pittsburgh Juice Company, one of our goals was to make organic produce and superfoods more accessible to the surrounding neighborhoods. Four years later, Heirloom Superfood Market represents this goal coming to fruition... and so much more!
At Heirloom Superfood Market you can rely upon a carefully curated selection of conscientiously sourced, organic, gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan options. You might visit Heirloom on a regular shopping trip or it might serve as a destination where you enjoy exploring new grocery items and holistic treasures.
I am so grateful to all of our customers for allowing us the opportunity to grow as a business; for purchasing our products with a regularity that allows us to stock an abundance of fresh, wholesome food and drink on our shelves daily.
