Stay in the Glo: February 2019

February is here! Last month was filled with challenges of different kinds to start off the new year with a bang. This month, we are bringing you a challenge of our own to continue those healthy habits even further! They say it takes a month to create a habit, well why not make it two just to be cautious. Between our Glo Challenge and new monthly specials, there’s lots to look forward to during the depths of February.

Sip-N-Glo Glo Challenge.jpg

Glo Challenge


Everyone starts off the new year going strong with healthy habits, but we all typically dip off by the time February rolls around. They say it takes a month to create a habit, so we figure we’ll help make it easy and rewarding to stick with it even longer!

How it works.

This month only, get a gift card for the number of sips you purchase throughout the month. There are three tiers, making it easier to reward healthy habits of different kinds. It is important to us that we create positive messaging around creating healthy habits and that their isn’t a one size fits all for our customers. For each sip purchased, you’ll receive a stamp on a special Glo Challenge card (purchase 3 juices, receive 3 stamps). You must receive the exact number or higher of sips for each tier to receive the gift card: 14, 20, 28 (see the tiers and gift card amounts in the graphic above). The great thing about this challenge? It not only encourages healthy habits in February, it gets you free stuff in March! Stop by in-stores to pick up your Glo Challenge card today and start sippin’!

*Excludes shots + kid size

**Glo Challenge cards can be redeemed for gift cards starting March 1st.

We are continuing the giving to Project Home with a donation from our One Love juice now through the end of March. A portion of all One Love sales will be donated to Project Home, a local organization focused on breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty.

Newest Sip Squad Addition: Mark Donohue!

Meet our newest member of Sip Squad, Mark Donohue! Mark is a college athlete turned fitness instructor and studio manager at Unite Fitness, one of Philly’s original boutique fitness studios. As we settle into the new year, we asked him some questions about his wellness journey and how he plans to take on the new year. Check out the interview below for some healthy habits that you can incorporate into your routine!

1) Tell us a little bit about yourself and your health and wellness journey.

It's certainly been a journey. I was born in Wales, but spent the majority of my childhood in London before a short stint in Houston and even shorter stint in Cape Town. Growing up, soccer was the glue that kept me active and is the reason I'm now in the city. I came to Philly to play at Drexel and was fortunate enough to be a part of a historic team. As I neared the end of my collegiate career, I started teaching group classes at Unite Fitness, which filled the void of no longer training with a team. Even to this day, I struggle with working out by myself and have loved seeing the group fitness scene flourish. There's just something inspiring about putting that work in together that makes group fitness so rewarding. Personally, I've been vegan for almost 4 years now, which has been transformative on a number of levels. 

2) The new year is a great time to reflect on the last year and ways you want to continue to invest in yourself or reach goals that you’ve set. Are there ways you make resolutions that frame them positively rather than negatively? 

For me it's always important to frame goals positively, otherwise they end up at the bottom of my to-do list. From my experience, if there's a goal I've set that doesn't make me happy when I think about attaining it, it's probably not something I really want. And that's actually one of my goals; better understanding myself. As I've grown older I've realized how many of my early goals were products of my environment & social conditioning, like playing soccer professionally. I wasn't really asking myself the tough questions like, "ya sure?" It's still a work in progress, but as I've shed those notions it's my latest goals that really get me excited. 

3) We are always looking for healthy habits that help us feel balanced and centered, what are your wellness routines that you find most helpful?

In no particular order: celery juice, meditation & floating and mind sweeps. Celery juice was introduced to me by my girlfriend Amandah and now we start every morning with it (pre-coffee). It helps reduce inflammation, balance your pH and is loaded with mineral salts. Now it's a refreshing start to the day. I'm sure meditation is a common response to this question, but for me it makes the difference in being able to make quick decisions. I don't do it everyday, but I've found first thing in the morning works best, otherwise at night it sees me right to sleep. Floatation therapy just makes meditation much easier since you strip away any sensory input and can really dive deep. These two go hand in hand and there are some great places to float in Philly, like Flotation on Girard. Finally, mind sweeps are something I've learned about in the past couple of months from GTD (Getting Stuff Done, a time management method coined by David Allen). Basically if you think about your mind like a computer then we only have a limited amount of storage and even the smallest things can start to demand attention and take up headspace. The premise of a mind sweep is downloading all these thoughts by writing them down (essentially moving them to an external hard drive). Personally, this is my go-to when I'm feeling overwhelmed and need to re-center myself. 

4) This January, we’re focusing on the positives. What are things that you do for self-care that bring you joy and you find most meaningful and helpful?

Fortunately I love what I do for a living, so I don't find I need a lot of explicit time for self-care. One of the biggest challenges for me is carving out the time to get a workout in myself, which sounds crazy. If I've put in a shift at the gym, it's a good day. Coaching classes is another highlight of my day, but it takes a lot of emotional and physical energy to do right, so self-care time for me is usually quiet and focused on recharging. When it's warmer, that could be taking my bike for a spin around the city. In the winter it usually means being at home and catching a show or documentary on Netflix. 

5) During the depths of winter, when it’s colder and darker, how do you continue your momentum and motivation?

Coming from the U.K. I actually love the colder months, especially the rain, but I understand I'm an anomaly on this front. I think one trick is listening to your body and understanding it needs different things in the winter. It makes sense to be inside more, to eat warmer, more satiating foods. Some of us thrive in the warmer times of year and maintain those expectations throughout the colder months, when realistically I think it's important to re-assess your expectations. If I continue setting goals for myself in the winter at the pace and level I do in the summer, it's just demoralizing. Adjust and conquer. 

6) What are you most looking forward to this year? 

The energy in Philly is just amazing right now. I just feel like we're really trending up as a city. Personally I'm most excited for Unite's next steps as a company. Philly's been home for us for 12 years and we have some really exciting developments on the horizon. 

7) What’s your favorite Sip-N-Glo drink and why? 

I'm a sucker for a Chocolate PB shake. Pre-packaged, delicious and packing 30g of protein with only 5g of sugar. It's my go-to on-the-go.

January: New Year, still Glo-ing strong!

Happy New Year! The new year is a great time to make goals and try new things. Rather than thinking of things you want to change and improve in yourself, what are the things you’ve done really well and want to continue into 2019? At Sip-N-Glo, we are thinking of all the amazing, fun and self-positive things we did in 2018 and looking forward to Glo-ing strong in the new year and keeping up those healthy habits!

New year, still Glo-ing strong! Check out below for ways we plan to Glo strong!

Sip-N-Glo Juicery New Year!

1) Keep the Giving Glo-ing into the New Year!

There’s always a spike in giving around the holiday season, and we want to continue Glo-ing strong into the new year by hosting a canned food drive now. For the month of January (starting today!), we are hosting a canned food drive for Project Home. Project Home is Philly-based organization that focuses on empowering adults, families and children to break the system of homelessness and poverty.

How does Give-N-Glo work?

For every canned good brought in you get a $1 off your drink (yes, if you bring in 10 cans you get a free drink!).

What can I bring in?

Any unexpired canned food good! Check our list below for ideas:

rice, peanut butter, canned stew, whole grain pastas, beans, canned fruit, canned veggies, oatmeal/breakfast cereal, tuna

When does it run?

NOW! Stop in to any location between January 1st and 31st with a can (or a few) and get money off your sips.

Giving back to our local community is super important to us, and we want to give back to not only our greater Philadelphia community but our customers with discounts!

2) We’ve got a new seasonal juice, Detox!

The Mix:

grapefruit, cucumber, dandelion greens, lime, cilantro, activated charcoal

The Fix:

This sip is here to help you start off the new year right! Carefully crafted with activated charcoal and nutrient dense greens like dandelion greens and cilantro to help your body recover and feel refreshed to take on the year.

The Taste:

Tangy grapefruit and lime balances out dense greens with an herbal pop from cilantro.

3) Sip on our new Glo Easy with CBD!

The love and support we’ve received around this sip has been overwhelming, thank you! If you’re looking to relax after the holiday mayhem, Glo Easy is for you. If you want to learn more about CBD and our process, check out our blog post about Glo Easy.

Glo Easy with CBD!

We are excited to announce the launch of our newest product, Glo Easy, featuring 15 mg of CBD, the non-psychoactive (it won’t make you feel high!) element of hemp.

Intrigued? Read more below!

Glo Easy Sip N Glo.jpg

The Mix:

15mg CBD, strawberry, rosewater, dragonfruit, hibiscus, lemon, apple

The Fix:

Whether you are trying to stay calm during finals, relax during the chaos of your day-to-day, or simply looking for a sweet treat you can enjoy guilt-free, this is your sip!

The Taste:

Glo Easy is perfectly balanced with sweet strawberry, tart lemon and floral rose giving you a full range of flavor to enjoy while you sip back and relax.

More on this sip:

This product has been in our test kitchen for over a year as we developed the right flavor profile to match the benefits of the drink. We did our due diligence to research CBD as a superfood from visiting dispensaries in California, to evaluating the efficacy of the form we used in our products. As with any supplement, just because a product advertises a certain quantity of CBD does not mean that the body is able to absorb and harness the benefits of that superfood effectively. From our research and discussions with multiple professionals, we landed on a water soluble version that the body can more easily absorb due to the bioavailability of the CBD in this form. We also carefully researched and spoke to professionals about the appropriate milligram amounts for our product, which is how we landed on 15mg.

Our Sip Squad community member Adriana Adelé wrote an article for Urban Wellness Mag about CBD (the link is attached below)! So we thought she would be the perfect person to review Glo Easy and give her take on CBD:

Helloooo Glo-ers! It’s Adriana here from the Sip Squad! If we haven’t met before, check out my intro blog and how I plan to handle this potentially hectic holiday season.

So at the risk of sounding like a totally annoying wellness hipster, I’ve been stoked on CBD products since at least like 2011 before they were super mainstream. (I know, I know, I’m unrolling my eyeballs from the back of my head too.) But it’s true! Almost 10 years ago, I was living out in California, where the attitude about hemp products were a little more *cough* *cough* progressive than on the East Coast. CBD went from being sold in speciality shops only to being in grocery stores to lattes to massages to dog treats.

If you’re not sure what CBD is, to make a long story short it’s a cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant that acts as an our endogenous cannabinoid system, meaning our body produces cannabinoids and has receptors for them. The ECS affects a number of our bodily systems from our autoimmune system to our gut to our mood. CBD has been touted for its effects on everything from insomnia, to depression and anxiety, to GI distress, to general pain relief and inflammation reduction. And even though it comes from the cannabis plant, unlike THC, CBD works sans any of the psychoactive effects of its more famous cousin, THC. (If you’re looking for a more detailed dive into the inner workings of CBD, check out this article I wrote for Urban Wellness Mag.)

Anyway, when I heard Sip-N-Glo was a launching a CBD infused juice, Glo Easy, I could swear I could audibly hear “these are a few of my favorite things” in my head in Julie Andrews’ voice and everything.  On a chilly weekend morning, the bright red color, tropical flavor, and lemony after kick were enough to put me in a great mood….but I can’t lie, the 15 mg of CBD certainly helped too. When it comes to CBD (and any health supplement/adaptogen/etc) I much prefer topicals or capsules over tinctures or infused products because...well, they taste gross to me. Not at all the case with my new bff, Glo Easy, whose taste was super refreshing, light, and drama-free like any good friend should be. Other than that, I got exactly what I’d expect from 15 mg of CBD— a chill, relaxed energy. I like to frame the effects of CBD from “what I feel” to “what I don’t feel”, meaning the decrease in my anxiety symptoms and clarity of mind. Especially with the holidays upon us as new year around the corner, we could all use a little extra clarity! But don’t take my word for it, next time Glo Easy is restocked (it sold out on its first weekend!) grab a bottle and see what you feel!

Adriana Adelé: our newest member of Sip Squad

The holidays are officially here! So we’ve called on our newest Sip Squad community member, Adriana Adelé, to give us Glo getters some helpful tips and tricks to staying balanced and energized this season! As a yoga instructor at Three Queens Yoga & Maha Yoga (just to name a few) and the creator of Slay, Adriana uses her experience to lead us through how she plans to make the most of this year’s festivities while keeping up her healthy habits. Check out her full interview below for all the deets:

Tell us a little about yourself and your health & wellness journey.

I’m Adriana Adelé and I am a South Philly transplant (by way of California, by way of Atlanta, by way of St. Thomas), intuitive eater, french fry connoisseur, crop top enthusiast, mindful mover, dog mom, self-proclaimed weather and ankle reporter, and a local yoga teacher. My health and wellness journey has first and foremost been a journey of self-discovery. After moving to Oakland, California post-college, I started working in a too-cool-for-me cafe with a small, but locally-sourced food menu. The baker that supplied the most perfect chocolate pumpkin bread took me under his wing, taught me how to bake, and tipped me off to his favorite restaurants in the Bay (of which there were so many)! His love of and care for food really catalyzed my own. This cafe was down the street from Flying Yoga which soon became my first home yoga studio, where I’d clean mats in exchange for free classes. Though the practice was really hot and fast vinyasa-- so very different from what I practice and teach now-- it was exactly what I needed at the time. Even though my time in the East Bay was brief, it really fostered a love of movement, which had been quite neglected through my college years, and a love of fresh, farm-to-table (a term that wasn’t so played out back then) food—meaning plant-forward and ethically-sourced animal products.  This was such a gift especially after growing up, like many, with a disordered, fear-based relationship with food. When I moved to Philly, I was diagnosed with Graves’ Disease, which is an autoimmune disorder that affects the thyroid gland. After my treatment, I spent a couple years adjusting to the hormone replacement needed after thyroid removal and readjusting to my body after weight gain and depleted energy levels. I fell into the world of diet culture repackaged as “wellness lifestyle” world and back into old and counter-productive eating habits hopping from one restrictive “lifestyle shift” (aka diet) to the next. My most profound and impactful shift started after I began learning tantric yoga philosophy. For perhaps the first time, I believed my body and embodiment itself were gifts. I was simultaneously also educating myself about the insidious effects of diet culture. That’s when I really started cultivating my own definition of health and wellness, which for me means trusting the intelligence of my body through intuitive eating—I crave greens as much as I do sweets—measuring the effects of movement and exercise by how I feel and what I can do rather than how I look, and making room for my mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being instead than only focusing on the physical.

With the holidays coming up quick, it can be an exciting but stressful time of year! What are some pro tips you can share with our fellow Glo-getters to stay grounded, connected and stress free this holiday season?

Being a yoga teacher, I’m obviously going to say yoga asana and meditation! But maybe not in the way you usually think about it. Of course, ideally we’d like to carve out 90 minutes for a yoga class or big chunks of time to meditate. But when we’re feeling the hectic vibe of the holidays (or really any times when you’re feeling extra busy), know that some is better than none. Five (or even two!) minutes of closing your eyes and connecting with your breath can shift your internal state. One of my favorite quick visualizations (and I pinky swear I didn’t just make this up for this blog, you can check my insta feed!) is one I call “be the juice” where you visualize your body as a bottle of cold-pressed juice that’s been shaken and set down. Then with every exhale you visualize all the shaken pulpy juice bits (which i pretend are my thoughts) settling to the bottom. I find it really calming. And for yoga asana, my go-to poses for the holidays are quad (front of the thighs) stretches, supported and active backbends, and legs up the wall especially if you have to travel! During the holidays I spend more time in cars and planes than normal and the cold weather tends to make us want to curl up. I like to counteract all that time hunched up by engaging and stretching the quads and the back body. Legs up the wall is great way to settle down after a long day or week and calm your energy especially before bed.

We are here to help our customers create healthy habits that are easy and rewarding, while also supporting a balance (i.e. pass the pie, please!). What are ways you plan to maintain balance and healthy habits through the holiday hubbub?

·         Don’t overthink it! I plan to not overthink anything except for the holiday dinner menu. Beyond the fact that I tend to “suffer” from decision fatigue, I’ve started letting of the go of the idea of making “the right-est” choice and whether that means choosing not to fret about which shoes to wear with my holiday party outfit (does anyone reaaaally care that much? And if they care, do I really care?) or if it that means not worry and obsessing about the calories on that second helping. Some dietitians would gasp but for me the amount of stress and potential of negative thought patterns about pie and calories and carbs and macros is way more unhealthy for me than just eating the dang pie. Rather than overthink, my goal is to feel and respond to how I feel with honesty-- recognizing hunger and fullness, acknowledging if I’m feeling energetic and strong or sluggish and stagnant. And if my body and mind feel sluggish and stagnant? Then it’s time for the things that I know make me feel good in heavy, sluggish moments like yoga, walk, SLT, dance around our my living room, or a big plate of greens.

·         Schedule time for yourself! I’m a bullet-journaler with my yoga teacher schedule it’s the best way for me to keep track of all my to-dos and not double book myself. I get a lot of joy out of looking a week or month ahead and crossing out evenings with the plan to not make any plans if I can. Sometimes, life happens and I have to schedule over my chill time but I do my best to reschedule. As an extroverted introvert, time to recharge is key. But if you’re in need of some human connection, schedule some time with those friends that recharge you or get involved in a community group.

We are all busy, tired, motivated individuals trying to do better for ourselves both mentally and physically. What healthy habits have you adopted that you find most helpful during your day-to-day?

·         Meditation! (I know...again…I think it’s because that’s what I need the most) It took me a little while to come around to seated meditation but it’s been one of the most high impact, low cost habits I’ve added to my day-to-day. Even just five informal minutes before I head out the door helps set the tone and bring clarity to my day! Sometimes, I meditate in bed while my fiancé and pup are snoozing or on my kitchen counter while I wait for my tea or coffee water to boil. When I can carve out time for longer sessions I do, but I never underestimate the power of a few minutes. And even if my thoughts are jumping from my grocery list to my classes to “did I really say that?!” for those five minutes, it gives me a good reflection of my mental state that day and practice in acknowledging my thoughts and letting them go.

·         Staying hydrated!! This is one that I have to actively work at on the daily. Whenever I’m feeling “off”, I like to down a glass of water and it’s kind of ridiculous how often and how much it helps. Plus, this cold northeastern weather sucks the life out of my skin in the winter and as much as I love fancy body creams and exfoliating scrubs, if I’m not hydrated from the inside out they’re just a band-aid.

·         Having a little morning routine! Personally, I got an alarm clock—like a real one with dials and numbers and 7 different sounds with no phone attached—and it’s made a world of difference. Waking up without a little portal of blue light telling me about what everyone else is doing and reminding me that the world is so messy has been a game-changer. I like to do a mental gratitude list then sneak in a quick meditation followed by hot water + lemon + honey + turmeric & ginger syrup. It’s short, it’s sweet, and i’ve noticed days that I start with this routine feel better (even if due to external circumstances they don’t really go better) than days that I don’t.

What’s your favorite Sip-N-Glo drink and why?

Radiant Glo is my favorite juice! I’m usually drawn to anything with turmeric. The flavor is bright and citrusy but a little earthy and warm all at the same time. My favorite smoothie right now is the Buzzed smoothie because coffee goodness. I go through periods of drinking coffee and not for a whole host of reasons. Right now I’m definitely on and the Buzzed smoothie is my the perfect between classes and errands pick me up!

The Fix: This year we’ve taken our classic immunity boosting juice one step further by adding both zinc and echinacea! These powerhouse superfoods fight inflammation and help reduce the nagging cold symptoms that never seem to go away.  

The Taste: Fresh carrot meets zing of ginger and lemon.
