We have been making smoothies and juicing since 1984 and want to introduce our Smoothies & Juice Bar, Tea Room and Accessories, Coffee Protein. We have a broad menu of Fuel for Your Body and welcome all who already live the life…We also want to help those who need a healthier diet due to health conditions. We cater to everyone and those who need to make a lifestyle change to Gluten Free or the Mediterranean diet , which are two diets that some physicians have highly recommended to their patients. Fuel for Your Body would like to help you get into the habit of eating healthier if you don’t already.

Whats happening in February
Mediterranean Diet Most healthy diets include fruits, vegetables, fish and whole grains, and limit unhealthy fats. Following the Mediterranean diet may lead to more stable blood sugars, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, and a lower risk of heart disease and other health problems. The Mediterranean-style diet has fewer meats and carbohydrates and more plant-based foods and monounsaturated (good) fat than a typical American diet. If you're looking for a heart-healthy eating plan, the Mediterranean diet might be right for you... “Research has shown that the traditional Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of heart disease. In fact, an analysis of more than 1.5 million healthy adults demonstrated that following a Mediterranean diet was associated with a reduced risk of death from heart disease and cancer, as well as a reduced incidence of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases” according to the staff at the Mayo Clinic
The Mediterranean diet:
•Plant-based meals, with just small amounts of meat and chicken, when they are used more servings of grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, and •Foods that naturally contain high amounts of fiber •Replacing butter with healthy fats, such as olive oil •Using herbs and spices instead of salt to flavor foods •Limiting red meat to no more than a few times a month •Eating fish and poultry at least twice a week
The diet also recognizes the importance of being physically active and enjoying meals with family and friends. Remember to live love, laugh and share the love of a healthy lifestyle.
We like to give something back to the Seniors/Children in our community that's why
we came up with the idea to give students a free scoop of ice cream for 1 A on their report card or a special award during the school year 2013 - 2014- 2015.
We also offer an after school Senior/ kids special on Tonys Ice Cream for only $2.25
The importance of a Healthy Diet
Most of us don’t get enough nutrients from fruits and vegetables. The current recommendation for a healthy diet is to fill half your plate at each meal with fruits and vegetables. Do you get that much? Most of us do not, especially our children....Most of us suffer from a daily fruit and vegetable consumption gap. Putting the right foods into our bodies is a struggle.
Fast food drive-thrus and all-you-can-eat buffets lie and wait on every corner. Perserveatives, fat, salt, and sugar have been added to almost every package on the shelf at the grocery store. Grabbing a bag of chips or a bottled of soda at the convenience store is easier than peeling an orange or tossing a salad.
The message is clear: We need more fruits and vegetables and other whole food-based nutrition in our diets every day. It's the one thing people agree that we can do to improve our health and reduce our risk of chronic diseases, such as stoke, cancer and heart disease. And that is what inspired us to open Fuel For Your Body, Promote Health and Wellness to our community as well as, our children.But healthy eating takes time, planning, and can cost a lot of money. With today's busy lifestyles – from busy moms to traveling executives to active seniors – it's easy to miss out on the nutrients we need from fruits and vegetables. That's why adding whole foods from Fuel For Your Body to your diet is an important step for you and every member of your family. It's a simple, affordable way to fuel your body with good nutrition.

Antioxidants from the Orchard
Whole food based nutrition delivers powerful antioxidants that provide your body protection, because it relies on fruits and vegetables. According to the National Cancer Institute, antioxidants are “substances that may protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Examples of antioxidants include beta-carotene, lycopene, vitamins C and E and other substances. Many of these antioxidant substances come from fruits and vegetables.”
Did you know?
Part of a healthy diet, fruits and vegetables contain a powerful array of antioxidants that offer protection for our bodies. Beta-carotene is found in many fruits and vegetables that are orange in color, like carrots. Some green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and kale, are also rich in beta-carotene.
•Lutein, best known for its association with healthy eyes, is abundant in green, leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale. •Lycopene is a potent antioxidant found in abundance in tomatoes. •Vitamin C is found in many fruits and vegetables such as apples, oranges, pineapple, cherries, carrots, parsley, kale, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, and tomatoes. •Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant found in green, leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli.

Tea has been consumed for several thousand years. And more tea is consumed each year around the world than any other beverage. If you are new to tea, come on in an sample some of our tea and let us help you select some delicious teas based on your taste and health preferences. You may be thinking, why bother with loose leaf tea when tea bags are more convenient? Loose Leaf Tea is much higher quality than tea bags and the taste alone is often reason enough for people to drink loose leaf teas. And loose tea can be very simple and quick to make with a few basic items.
Indeed there are many different types of tea, beginning with white tea, black tea to green tea. A tea blended with fruits is a excellent place to start. Dried fruits like blueberries and strawberries can add extra vitamins to tea. Some beginner tea drinkers may like the taste as well as the smell! of flowers in their tea. Flowers like lavender, jasmine and roses can really enhance the experience of drinking tea by adding a full and fragrant aroma. So why not try out nature's most delicious resource? First, let’s start choosing a tea.
Teas for Beginners
Consider loose leaf black teas if you regularly drink bagged tea. Familiar black teas like Earl Grey and English Breakfast are available in loose leaf, along with some of our other favorites. If you are looking for a different or softer taste, white teas have a much lighter and more subtle flavor. Great starter white teas include Silver Needles White Tea and Veryberry White Tea.
We invite you to come and see our other recommended teas to find a tea that’s right for you. After you have selected some loose teas, you may be wondering how to actually brew the tea. One of the simplest ways to make tea is with The Smart Tea Maker. Just add your loose tea and water, steep for the appropriate time, and the tea right into a tea cup or mug. It is important to note that the water temperature and steep time will affect how your tea will taste. For example, boiling water is too hot for white and green teas and will make them taste bitter. Letting the tea leaves sit for too long in water can also make your tea taste bitter or harsh. Come on in to learn about the different tea temperatures.
After you have acquired a taste for loose teas, you may want to experiment with different flavor combinations and create your own tea blends. Soon you may find that brewing loose tea in a ceramic teapot or cast iron teapot can affect how your tea tastes. These are just a few of the many ways you can make drinking each cup of tea a unique and delicious experience.
