From the leaden air to the easily accessible bars (not to mention the greasy bar snacks) Beijing is not always the healthiest place to live. Luckily for us, we have companies like Juice by Melissa to help us back on to the straight and narrow. Starting out as a delivery service providing organic, cold-pressed juice cleanses, Juice by Melissa has since grown into one of the best suppliers of juices and nut milks in Beijing, with a menu chock full of delicious yet healthful blends that make the most of hero ingredients like fresh turmeric and raw cacao. Classic cleanses start at RMB 360 per day and they have a range of packages available to fit all requirements.

However, with the establishment of their first retail store and super food café, it is increasingly apparent that Juice by Melissa is about more than just the juice. Their nut milk coffees and developing menu of “fit foods”, including items such as vegan soups, quinoa bites and chia seed pudding, promote an all-round healthy approach that will appeal to those feeling burdened by the excesses of the Beijing lifestyle. After the opening of organic-conscious restaurant Tribe in the latter half of 2014, we can only hope that the tide of health is rising in Beijing.
