PAUSE For 5 Offers Cold-Pressed Juice; Offers Healthier Lifestyle

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Something new and fresh has begun in Chattanooga, and it’s giving people reason to PAUSE.  PAUSE for 5, LLC, is the first and only cold-pressed juice company in town, offering raw, hand-crafted and cold-pressed juice to Chattanoogans.  

Hope Goodpasture, founder of PAUSE for 5, decided to bring the cold-pressed option to Chattanooga after she did her first juice cleanse.  The results she experienced spoke to the benefits cold-pressed juice offers, and she realized Chattanoogans needed to have a high-quality, raw product available locally.  During a morning run, Hope purposed in her heart to create PAUSE, and now many in Chattanooga are experiencing the benefits of her juice blends.

“This is a new concept for Chattanooga,” Ms. Goodpasture said.  “In larger cities, people are foregoing their fad-coffee for a green juice, but cold-pressed juice is more than a fashion statement.  Cold-pressed juice retains the maximum amount of nutrients in the raw product.  It’s like eating 1- 1 ½ pounds of vegetables and fruits, and the resulting benefits are hard to ignore.  Customers have experienced lower cholesterol, more energy, less pain – the list goes on.”

Unlike centrifugal juicers (found in most homes), which introduce heat to the produce during the juicing process, PAUSE equipment uses two tons of hydraulic pressure to slowly and gently extract the juice from the produce.  Cold-pressed juice is not heated or oxidized, leaving it as close to the whole food as possible.

“As people begin to make efforts toward a healthier lifestyle, I hope they will use me as a resource,” said Ms. Goodpasture. “I have spent years educating myself on healthy living and continue to immerse myself in all things nutrition so I can pour my knowledge out on others.  My vision is to educate people, young and old, about the importance of quality nutrition, and to partner with local farmers and businesses as we grow.”

To start, PAUSE for 5 will begin a new Cleansing 101 blog series.  The series will address the whys and hows of cleansing for those who are new to the idea, and what to do to continue in a healthy lifestyle after cleansing.  The blog will be available at http://www.pausefor5.com/blog.

If your business would like to schedule a tasting or if you would like to schedule a demonstration at a local school, please contact Megan Steventon, director of Marketing, at 423 315-6791 or email PAUSEfor5@yahoo.com.

Bikers Need To Have Licenses And Insurance - And Response

I am okay with Haslam’s idea of raising the gas tax and lowering the food tax.  But, I want to see a tax of bicycles since they have their own lanes now and they also have to be maintained. How much revenue would that bring in?  I would think if we have enough bike riders to have the lanes in the first place, there must be enough to generate some money for road improvements. ...

I am surely one of the biggest proponents of high school athletics there is, especially after half a decade of being an eye witness to the vast array of lessons that are learned every day by anyone associated with sports. That said, I have watched the Hamilton County Commission waffle on a $500,000 track at Central High School with a certain curiosity because the same high school ... (click for more)
