Local Fit Food Express Introduces Organic “Purenergy” Juice Bar


Two and a half years after the Delray Beach healthy and gourmet takeout and delivery location first opened, Fit Food Express has upped its game once more – adding an Organic PurEnergy Juice Bar to the location. The takeout store and juice bar is located at 302 NE 4th Street (four blocks north of Atlantic Avenue and one street west of Federal Highway) and features its own gourmet kitchen where all meals are prepared for pick-up and delivery customers as well as stop-ins. The juice bar features more than ten smoothie options, ten green and fruit juices, and five cold-pressed juices – 97% of which are organic, and all of which are locally sourced from Woolbright Farmers Market in Boynton Beach. (Non-organic juice bar items are bananas, jalapenos and lemons.) According to Fit Food Express owner Dean Pagni, the addition of the PurEnergy Juice Bar was a natural progression for the gourmet, health food shop. “Our customers have relied on Fit Food Express for delicious, healthy and convenient meals for years,” Pagni said. “We decided that adding a juice bar was a critical component in being their total solution for nutritional eating (and drinking) for every meal of the day.” Signature smoothie options include: Berry Kick, Blueberry Banana Recovery, Cacao Mint, Flex on the Beach, Pineapple Grove, Sweet Monkey, and more. Juices include: The Harmonizer, Big Red, Sweet Greens and The Green Monster. Wheatgrass shots are also available. Fit Food Express’ meal menu can be found online and customers are welcome to tailor the meals to their personal needs and/or pick up a pre-packaged dish from the store’s large refrigerator display. According to Pagni, 90% of the menu is Gluten-Free; the meals are low in saturated fats and sodium; there are no refined sugars and no wheat. All meals are portion controlled and affordable. Vegetarian options are also available. Fit Food Express uses the highest quality ingredients to prepare meals, all of which are made from scratch daily and packaged in plastic microwave-safe, BPA-approved and recyclable containers. Pagni notes that what differentiates his shop from other meal delivery options is that customers can personalize their meals and order specific meals as part of a delivery. Fit Food Express is a takeout store specializing in supportive nutrition with one mission in mind: Make it convenient and affordable for people to eat great tasting, healthy meals. All customers need to do is pop one of the meals into the microwave at home or work and in less than two minutes they will be eating a great tasting meal they can count on to be healthy. The concept is simple. That is to provide meals which provide the right metabolic balance centered on proper food combinations and smaller, frequent meals to help stave off hunger, stimulate metabolism and even out blood sugar levels. This leaves one not only feeling great, but more importantly, looking great. Remember, healthy living begins with proper nutrition.
