5 Macpherson Ave, 367 King St. West, 2553 Yonge St. & 199 Bay St. The lovely folks at Greenhouse Juice Co. have been rocking the Toronto juice stage since early 2014 with their certified organic ingredients and aesthetically beautiful social media platforms. For 72 hours, your Greenhouse Juice is alive. Everything inside the bottle is completely raw, unpasteurized and contains no HPP. “But what does that even mean?!” you’re asking. Well, here’s the quick version: the natural life of all those healthy ingredients inside your juice are not tampered with (nothing has been cooked or subjected to high temperatures). We here in the beauty department loved heart healthy East of Eden, a veggie-heavy juice with the best kick of sweetness thanks to a touch of apple and lemon. And shoutout to Deep Roots, a beet and carrot based juice, which benefits the liver, kidneys and lungs. And for all you fashionistas out there, Greenhouse Juice Co has a pop-up at Holt Renfrew Yorkdale until March 8th. You are invited to drink your live elixirs whilst shopping for a Fendi bag. Sounds like a dream. READ MORE: The best foods to prevent catching the common cold

326 Bloor St. West, 894 Queen St. West, 147 Spadine Ave & 90 Eglinton Ave. East A Toronto classic operating since 1999 under one of the coolest women in town, Ruth Tal, Fresh is the OG juice bar in Toronto (they did green juices before green juices were cool). This source for all things vegetarian and vegan is on a mission to prove that healthy foods can also be delicious and crave-able foods. From spinach juices to comfort foods (think burgers, fries and onion rings), Fresh offers a little something for everyone. At their juice bar, we loved the Urban Detox: a kale, spinach, chard and romaine combo featuring apple, lemon, ginger and liquid cayenne. Is it weird that we thought the energizing burn was totally satisfying? Our immune systems definitely got a boost. READ MORE: How one woman discovered "brain orgasms"

12 Market St. Fresh on the scene, Evolution opened their doors in 2014 with market-inspired dishes and juices that are nourishing and delicious. How instagram worthy do their Breakfast Bowls look, btw? Evolution Food Co has three core values: Keep it simple, make it count, and create good vibes. We dig that. We tried out their Heavenly Glow cold-pressed juice which, if you’re new to the green juice thing, is a good place to start. You get that full apple sweetness and zing of ginger alongside all that kale and cucumber. Y-U-M. READ MORE: Victoria's Secret models workout routines
