Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
You or a friend of yours will come to Thrive once a day and we send you home with a gallon of juice, which you will drink throughout the day. Each day we will provide you with a new gallon of juice.
Do you use organic vegetables and fruits?
We use 100% organic cucumbers, kale, spinach, celery, apples, carrots, beets, parsley, lemons, limes, cilantro, and jalapeño. We purchase conventional ginger.
How long does the juice stay fresh?
As juice contains the most nutrients right after juicing, we recommend that all juice be consumed within 24 hours. Juice will still taste good on the second day. Juice will not taste good on the third day. So, drink it up on the first day. Plus, this is juice feasting as opposed to juice fasting, thus, we really encourage you to have a gallon of juice a day to keep your caloric intake up so you can still function normally!
When can I come get the juice?
We are open from 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. If you are unable to make it during business hours, you are welcome to have a friend pick your juice up for you.
Will you deliver?
We would love to and will deliver daily anywhere in King County if there is a group of 4 or more people juicing. We charge 45¢ per mile and drive time at $20 per hour — each way (round trip). For example, if you want us to come downtown and bring you juice to your work, guessing the drive time takes 15-minutes each way ($5.00 each way = $10.00) and mileage is 10-miles ($4.50 each way = $9.00), your delivery cost would be $19.00. We normally need to deliver outside of our business hours, so either in the mornings before 10:00 a.m. or in the evenings after 8:00 p.m.
How do you fill my bottle if you don’t have it?
We will make your juice within 30 minutes of your pick-up time. If we are not proving you with a brand new container, we will keep your juice in one of our containers. Upon your arrival, we will transfer it into your container.
Can I add something to my juice?
Yes. The Refresh option includes one free add-on (such as lemon, apple, ginger, cilantro, etc.) Each additional add-on costs $5 per gallon. For example, to put enough cilantro in the gallon for you to taste it, we need to use 2 or more bunches of cilantro. After the first add-on, we pass this cost on to you if you are asking us to add it.
Can I bring in vegetables and can you juice them for me?
Yes, we can add any vegetables or fruits that you bring in to your juice. For example, if you would like to bring in tomatoes and bell pepper to add to your Refresh, please do. A lovely savory juice combination is cucumber, celery, tomato, bell pepper, spinach, kale, and parsley.
How much weight can I expect to lose while doing the Levity Cleanse?
If you have more than 50 pounds to lose, you can expect to lose between .5 and 3 pounds per day, depending on how much weight you have to lose, your level of activity, your metabolism, and other factors. Please note that we are not nutritionists or doctors.
Is a gallon enough juice if I am very active?
Maybe; everyone is different. Your level of energy will fluctuate as you continue on the juice feast for longer.
Who can I talk to at Thrive about juice feasting?
All of us who work in the cafe have done a juice feast of some kind at some point. Just ask!
Can I just try juice feasting for a day?
Sure! A basic gallon of juice is $49 plus tax.
If I break my cleanse, can I have a refund of unused juice gallons?
No. We plan our vegetable purchasing based on juices ordered. However, this doesn’t mean that you lose your opportunity to get your juice. Juices do not have to be used consecutively. See the next question for more on this.
If I break my cleanse part-way through, what happens to the juice gallons I have pending that I haven’t picked up yet?
Although we do not offer refunds for incomplete juice cleanses, you are more than welcome to pick up your juices at a later time. They don’t need to be used consecutively. We do ask that you try to use any juice credits within a month if possible. You can also transfer your juice credits to a friend or family member.
What’s the difference between juice fasting and juice FEASTING?
The primary difference is in the amount of juice that is taken in. On a juice fast, calories are more restrictive and most people get very tired and don’t have a ton of energy. During a fast, it’s good to lay low. During a juice feast, if you drink all of the juice you are provided with, you should have enough juice to continue normal functions such as working and thinking and walking and feeling happy.
If I live far away, can I pick up all my juice at once?
This is not a good idea if you want your juice to stay fresh. If you have a gigantic freezer, we suppose you could take a bunch of juice at once — but again, the nutritional value would not be as great.
What kind of juicer do you use at Thrive?
We use a Nutrifaster juicer. Nutrifaster makes a great commercial centrifugal juicer.
If I want to juice at home, do you have any juicer recommendations?
Tons! Check out the Vitality Shop link above for our favorite juicers. If you seriously committed to doing a juice feast of 30 days or longer, as us about special juicer pricing.
