About the Juices
*Our vegetable juices are citrus-fruit and cruciferous vegetable free. The ingredients selected for our green juices are the least bitter tasting. All the juices are tasteful without a sharp aftertaste.
*Our fruit juices are singular ingredients. This allows for the full taste of the fruit.
*Are designed for people who have a sensitive stomach to raw foods. When someone is introducing raw foods to their digestive system, it is best to do it with the least acidic and with the simplest mixture of raw ingredients. This way, the digestive system is allowed to gradually detoxify the body without having stomach discomforts.
Our Juices Are:
Preparation of Ingredients
We start by cleaning each ingredient. Ingredients are soaked for 10 minutes in a mix of vinegar and water. Followed by a 30 second rinse. The leafy greens are spun to dry. We then remove the nutrient inhibitors of each ingredient. Some fruit and vegetables are peeled and then seeded. They are then ready for grinding and cold-pressing.
Ingredients at their raw state, should be removed of their nutrient inhibitors and be eaten with foods of similar molecular structure.
Fabiola Mucito, Founder
As a teenager, Fabiola was fascinated as to how food consumption effected people. One of her hobbies included reading books on anything food-diet related. She was so fascinated that she put herself through numerous diets during her high school years. She was curious to find out how each diet made her feel, and as to what changes (if any) occurred on her physicality. As the years passed (once out of high school) her focus shifted to observing how our culture relates to food.
We are living in a time where high-calorie food is more abundant and cheap than it has ever been before. We reward ourselves, gift it and celebrate with sweet and high-in-fat foods as if it is expensive and scarce. Only worth having on special occasions. The truth today is the very opposite. Healthy food is now expensive and scarce. Sweets and high-in-fat foods have lost their specialness. We no longer feel appreciation for these foods when we consume them. We feel guilt.
People instinctively know that they want to eat healthy. They just have difficulty understanding the choices to make, and how far they should stray from how they've eaten all their lives. Society still encourages sweet and high-in-fat food consumption. Especially on all social gatherings. Most of us feel confused. It was very obvious to Fabiola that people were now ready to be introduced to a health conscious gift giving option. This realization was the driving force for Fabiola. She wanted to make a positive contribution to the shift of what people felt was valuable now. Working through numerous ideas, Fabiola Flowers & Edible Gifts was born.
Fabiola holds two ServSafe certifications. She works out of one of Los Angeles most sought after kitchen incubators, Crafted Kitchen. She has 10 years of food related work experience, working for her mother's catering business. Fabiola hopes to continue to contribute her skills and knowledge through Fabiola Flowers & Edible Gifts. She is excited for the evolution of her unique and healthy edible gift baskets.
