Out of her beautiful home on 35 Pine Street Hamilton, Ontario Jesse Briscoe has transformed the back portion of her home into a location for Canadian franchise Glow Juicery, a company who’s sole goal is to challenge their customers to look at food differently. This mission resonated strongly at the soft opening of Glow Juicery Hamilton, which is conveniently located out of Jesse’s Kitchen.
I had a chance to speak to founder Marnie about why this location was so special to her and she explained to me that she thinks it’s unique because it is unlike any other location she’s helped launch. Unlike the other locations Jesse is welcoming us into her home and that is what makes her connection with her customers that much more special, it really makes a franchise like Glow Juicery feel connected to the community. Jesse’s vision wasn’t only to build a successful business for herself, but to be able to give Hamilton something they needed, something like Glow Juicery to help educate Hamiltonians on how to live a healthy lifestyle.
Glow Juicery isn’t what you may think it is, to be honest, a lot of people may think that nothing that tastes this good could possibly be healthy, but it is! It’s not rabbit food, it is soul food that makes you feel energized from the mind and down. Everything from their juices to their salads and delish glow bites is nutritious and jam-packed full of ingredients that can help us power through the day. Glow sees change and is in fact, that change in this plethora of toxic options we are faced with every day that causes harm to our bodies. They deliver juices that detoxify the body, brings energy to the body and clears and restores the mind.
Jesse had many treats available for us to taste test while visiting her “Glow home”, the first that I tried was the Glow Seasonal Salad. This salad is packed with seasonal vegetables such as carrots, cucumbers and chickpeas and plenty of other amazing vegetables.
I also had a chance to try the raw vegan Nanaimo Bars and they were absolutely delicious! I don’t think I would be able to tell the difference between a normal Nanaimo bar and the vegan ones I tried at Glow. Super chocolatey, nutty and even more delectable!
The Glow bites are also another favourite of mine. My favourite ingredient in this is the maple syrup, which If you’re Canadian you will appreciate! These little bites of heaven contain cashews, Medjool dates, TriPow, vanilla bean powder, and maple syrup.
There were also plenty of juice to cleanse our palates in between bites of Nanaimo bars and Glow bites. Jesse allowed us to sample the famous juices of Glow Juicery such as After Glow, Ener-G Glow, Vitamin G, and Citrus Glow.
- After Glow: Spinach + Cucumber + Celery + Kale + Apple + Parsley
- Ener-G Glow: Spinach + Cucumber + Pear + Celery + Chlorophyll
- Vitamin G: Cucumber + Carrot + Orange + Lemon + Ginger
- Citrus Glow: Orange + Lemon + Ginger + Coconut H20
Overall, such a positive experience at Glow Juicery, I will be definitely be stopping by after my long and rigorous hikes during the summer. Please make sure to check out Glow Juicery on May 21st, they open at 7AM to the public, they’ll be the sunshine to your long weekend!
