If, for some reason, you don't like the old, 2012, version of you, a new year, at least according to the magazines at grocery store check-out stands, seems to mean the possibility of a new you. On the food front, this new you tends to require healthy eating and drinking. Luckily, creative juice bars are popping up all over the darn place. Juicing doesn't mean wheat grass shots or kale smoothies anymore (although those certainly do still exist). Juice bars across LA are offering delicious meal replacements with spicy notes of ginger and cayenne, bright organic citrus and personalized recommendations. Find below our picks for the city's best juice and details about the cleanses on offer.Read More
