Think Press

Meet Alex Auger, founder of Think Press

Think Press, (used to be The Juice Executive), is a local gem of a business. Founded by Maidstone-born Alex Auger in 2014, Think Press’s mission is to get the nation drinking pure, healthy, cold pressed juices instead of the sugary, processed juices  which are readily available in the supermarkets but not actually that good for you.

Amazingly, Alex is just 23 years old. She created the business from scratch from her family home in Bearsted after seeing a niche in the market for cold pressed juices. Like most entrepreneurs, Alex is passionate about her product and will even invite you to see how the juices are produced at their site in Kent.

The juicing phenomenon is not new; legends like Jason Vale have been encouraging us to juice for years, and the shops keep turning out newer and flashier juicing machines so we can all make our own healthy juices from home. This all sounds great in theory, but try fitting home juicing into your already busy schedule and you’ll see the problem that makes most of us give up after only a few days or weeks. The amount of fruit and veg that goes into one small glass of juice (it’s about a crate full) which means daily trips to the supermarket (or organic greengrocers for those of you who are really committed), the fact that you can’t make the juice in bulk and freeze it because it undermines the juice’s nutritional value, not to mention the fact that it takes about 30 minutes to clean the wretched juicer, let alone the pulp that has sprayed all over the kitchen and your nice clean outfit… oh wait, better get changed.

Think Press

No, Alex and Think Press have revolutionised the way we juice and we are so much the happier (and healthier) for it. They cold press the juices from their headquarters in Kent using fresh locally sourced products,* and always deliver the juices to your door the morning after they’ve been pressed, so no hanging around in warehouses. From the field, to the press, to you within hours – it doesn’t get much fresher than that. And because Think Press do all the hard work, you can have high quality, healthy juice every day without all the hassle of making it.

Now you may be wondering, ‘what makes Think Press juice any different to the juice you can buy in the supermarket?’ The truth is that they’re worlds apart in quality, taste and nutritional value. Alex made the conscious decision that her juices would have a vegetable base, giving them a much lower sugar content than purely fruit based juices. And none of this ‘Best Before 2020’ nonsense; Think Press fresh juices have a short shelf life, precisely because they are FRESH juices.

For those you of thinking about giving it a go, Think Press do a small tasting box for just £32 (click here). Find out more about Think Press on their website – we can’t recommend them highly enough.

The Dragon’s Back Race™

One of Restoring Heath’s good friends Christopher Williams is about to undertake one of the hardest mountain races in the World – The Dragon’s Back Race™The legendary Dragon’s Back Race™ follows the mountainous spine of Wales from Conwy Castle to Carreg Cennen Castle in Wales. This incredible 5-day journey is approximately 300 kilometres long with 16,000 metres of ascent across wild, trackless, remote and mountainous terrain. It is not a trail race.
It takes place from the 22nd-26th June 2015.AlastairLee2925

We managed to catch up with him before he left for a quick chat:
Why are you so eager to go do this race?
I have always enjoyed the great outdoors and have in recent years done quite well in military style test march races such as The Fan Dance.  However looking for something new and a desire to step it up a gear, combined with hearing about The Dragon’s Back Race’s return, I was inspired to take on this new challenge.What are you most looking forward to?
I am really looking forward to enjoying the journey down through the mountainous spine of Wales, as that is where I was brought up and lived for the first 27 years of my life.  I look forward to taking in those remote parts that ‘tourists’ never see and getting away from it all for five days.

How has Restoring Health helped you to prepare for the journey ahead?
Looking forward to this challenge I am very aware of how others have played a very important role in getting me to the start line, let alone the finishing one!
Deborah and her very capable team have really helped me to overcome niggles that could have become road blocks and without a doubt have been integral in giving me the results needed to qualify and on top of that gain the confidence to get to the place where I am today.
Mountains ahoy! Thank you Restoring Health!

If you are interested in following Chris’ Journey minute by minute over the five days – all the competitors are fitted with Live Trackers which will allow you to follow their progress on The Dragon’s Back website HERE.
Simply click on his name and his current position will be displayed.

We will be watching Chris with bated breath, wishing him all the best on this incredibly exciting journey! We can’t wait to hear all the stories when he returns.
