Juices & Nut Beverages

Cold-pressed juicing is a method of extracting liquid from fruits and vegetables that doesn't denature enzymes or break down nutrients, keeping the beneficial properties of every ounce of juice intact. 

Cold-pressed juicers allow for the easy assimilation of essential vitamins and nutrients, unlike centrifugal juicers, which result in oxidation and a loss of health properties of the produce thanks to the higher temperatures the process requires. 

ORGANIC: Yes! All of our cold-pressed juices and nut beverages are made entirely from certified organic ingredients. When you buy a juice or nut beverage that's "organic when possible," you generally don't know what's going into that product. This is why we disclose every ingredient that goes into our products.  

VEGAN: Yes! Not all of our products, but most of them are! We use honey from time to time. Please be sure to double-check with our staff if you are avoiding honey. At Glory, we aim to have inclusive options for everyone. 

GLUTEN-FREE: Yes! Not all of our products, but most of them are! We work very hard to find suppliers that align with our core value to be gluten-free. Many people live with celiac disease, and we are committed to offering all celiacs a safe place to enjoy within our cafes. 

Not necessarily, despite how nutrient-dense they are. The answer to this question depends on your needs, goals, and how you feel after consuming our products. For some, our juices and nut beverages could serve as meal replacements. For others, it may be better to treat them as a healthy snack!

We NEVER add refined sugars, preservatives, or water into our juices. However, we may add delicious spices, such as cinnamon and vanilla, and other wholesome ingredients, such as organic dates and organic maple syrup, to add natural sweetness into our drinks. 

Our nut & seed mylks and refreshers are made with alkaline water. The water used in our drinks goes through a filtration system that ionizes it, raising the pH level to an optimal alkaline level. 

Drinking alkaline water and consuming more whole, alkalizing foods, like fuits and vegetables, helps to neutralize acid and keep fluids within optimal pH range. Many items we eat and drink regularly introduce high levels of acidity into our bodies, which can decrease our ability to absorb nutrients and minerals. This makes us more susceptible to fatigue and illnesses. 

Pasteurized juices are full of sugar and contain none of the natural goodness found in the raw fruits and vegetables that go into making them. 

Our juice is different. The sugars in our juice are naturally occurring and are accompanied by vital enzymes and nutrients. With every bottle, you will enjoy a nutrient-dense, satisfying drinking experience.

If you want to limit naturally occurring sugar in your diet, we offer juices extremely low in sugar, such as the #1 Green Juice.

Absolutely. All Glory bottled products should be refrigerated to keep optimal freshness. Each bottle has a 'best before' date sticker on the lid. Your product is good until the end of the day marked on that sticker.  

NOTE: We recommend that you consume a bottle within three days of opening it. 

Cleanses

This is a great question — and one that allows us to remind you we are not medical professionals. You know your body best, so listen to it and do what's right for you. If you have any existing medical conditions, we strongly advise you to consult with your doctor before considering a juice cleanse.

Juice cleanses are a great way to alkalize, restore, and reset your system. Cleansing can aid the body’s natural detox process, flushing your body using micronutrients and live enzymes, which help to eliminate toxins. This leaves your body looking good and feeling great. Common reasons that people choose to do a juice cleanse include: 

  • a weakened immune system 
  • skin problems & irritations
  • allergies & sensitivites
  • trouble sleeping 
  • poor digestion / absorption
  • low energy levels 
  • chronic fatigue or brain fog

We offer customizations to cleanses at any of our 3 Glory cafes.

You can customize any cleanse by adding wellness shots, refreshers, and different nut mylks to make a cleanse uniquely yours.

We recommended following the below order set for each cleanse: 

  • Starter: #3 | #6 | #12 | #7 | #14 | Chia Colada 
  • Green: #3 | #2 | #1 | #12 | #14 | Chia Fresca 
  • Active: Chia Fresca | #1 | #6 | Magic Switchel | #7 | Chia Colada | E3 Live Shot (Anytime)  
  • Harvest: Fire Water | #1 | #17 | #5 | #7 | #6 | Immunity Shot (Anytime) 

LIQUIDS: In addition to juice, consuming clear liquids will help keep you full, hydrated, and will help ward off any discomfort. We recommend drinking filtered water, non-caffeinated herbal tea, and hot lemon water liberally.

SOLIDS: During a cleanse, the intent is to consume strictly 100% juice (in addition to other clear liquids like water, herbal tea, and hot lemon water). However, every body is different, and it’s more important to pay attention to your unique needs than to adhere to this guideline. If you need to eat food during your cleanse, that is 100% okay. We suggest unprocessed, organic whole foods, like the following: Soups or broth, steamed greens, avocado, nuts and seeds, dates, nut butter.

For optimal results, we recommend avoiding the following items while cleansing: Coffee, refined sugar, meat, dairy products, wheat, alcohol, cannabis, nicotine. 

Before beginning your cleanse, it is ideal to take 3-5 days to prepare your body and mind. During this time, you will remove certain foods from your diet, which are common offenders for causing digestive troubles, headaches, cravings, and other withdrawal symptoms. Prior to starting a juice cleanse, your diet should consist primarily of unprocessed, natural — ideally organic — whole foods. 

Treat yourself with items from our delicious menu.  

After checking in with yourself to confirm the timing of your plan, take a few steps to set yourself up for success. First, work to create some space in your schedule during the cleanse, when you can reflect and rest. Next, find someone to support you in committing to your cleanse — call up that friend who has been saying they want to try one too and you’ve got yourself an accountability partner! 

Each of our bodies are beautifully unique. That means that no two people will experience a juice cleanse in exactly the same way. Some people may feel mental clarity and be full of vibrant energy, while others may feel more lethargic with the same regimen.

When cleansing or detoxing, some people may experience symptoms of discomfort such as headaches, fatigue, or low energy. It’s important that you listen to your body and pursue the cleanse at a pace that best suits you at the given time. Always feel empowered to modify your well-laid plan as necessary, prioritizing your mental and physical wellbeing. Incorporating juice cleanses as a healthy part of your life requires mindfulness of your own variable needs and a commitment to honouring them.

During your cleanse, you can maintain regular exercise. Be conscious that you may feel the need to reduce the intensity or frequency. Listen to your body and respond to its needs.

Your mind and body have experienced lots of change, so it’s important to ease them into the final transition. Reintroduce food into your diet gradually. We recommend first returning to the diet of organic whole foods you enjoyed in the pre-cleanse phase, incorporating soups and smoothies where possible. 

As you reintroduce foods, consider keeping a journal of how you react to each. This practice will give you a better understanding of how certain foods impact your mood, energy level, and digestion. With this information, you can identify problem foods, which you may want to remove from your regular diet long term

Packaging

We thought long and hard about all of our packaging needs. We decided to use a PET plastic bottles for the following reasons: 

- It is generally considered the safest single-use plastic. 

- It is recyclable in any blue bin in Canada. 

- Plastic bottles require fewer resources to create, fill, ship and distribute than glass bottles. This is because glass bottles weigh 10x plastic bottles. 

- Moreover, we source bottles that are produced in the Lower Mainland, reducing the carbon emissions required to get the juice to your door! 

- We explored other plastic-like options, but there are no feasible options available in the "bioplastic" world (yet) that maintain our products' quality and safety.

Yes. We strive to use compostable packaging whenever possible. Our smoothie cups, lids, bowls, cutlery, napkins, bags, straws, and coffee cups are just a few examples. That said, when we can't find a compostable alternative, we turn to recyclable options.
