Today marks the last day of Annapolis Restaurant Week and blogging about our juicing journey of this Color Cures co-branded campaign. Thank you to Metropolitan Kitchen & Lounge for providing fresh, delicious cold-pressed juices to the staff at Maine Cottage!

We still have about two weeks left in reaching our 30-day goal of drinking three fresh juices each day, so instead of reading about them here on our blog, treat yourself, order a fresh juice from Metropolitan and toast to color!

Check out our week of juicing on our Pinterest page (below) and facebook page. We love the positive effect color can have on your home and health—which color makes you smile?

Metropolitan Signature Juice Detox Cocktail

 

 

SPINACH: Gives mental push to memory and mind.

 

PARSLEY: Chlorophyll oxides the blood for a healthier heart.

 

CELERY: Calms the nervous system with essential oils.

 

CUCUMBER: Keeps body hydrated and functioning properly.

 

APPLE: Reduces high cholesterol levels.

 

GINGER: Decreases pain from constant headaches and migraines.

 

LEMON: Cleanses kidneys and digestive system—a great detox!

 

 

“I skip breakfast most mornings and end up snacking throughout the day on junk food. While I drink plenty of water each day, I know my body needs better nutrients and fluids to fight the toxins I’m putting into it. So, I chose the Detox Cocktail juice to get a healthy punch of fruits and vegetables into my diet. The lemon and ginger provide natural cleansing, while the spinach and apple subside my cravings for unhealthy snacks. It tastes really good and it doesn’t hurt that it’s my favorite color too!” —Elyse, Graphic Designer

Maine Cottage greens are as fresh as the herbs in your garden, a midsummer meadow or a leafy forest canopy. They are an easy way to bring the outside indoors. Our signature Pear color is a great way to revive a room. Think of filling a room with greens like planting a garden—one you can enjoy all year round.

Metropolitan Signature Juice Farmer's Wife.

 

 

WATERMELON: Powerful antioxidants can help fight cancer!

 

CUCUMBER: Made up of 95-percent water and keeps the body hydrated.

 

APPLE: Increases heart health by reducing high cholesterol levels.

 

BASIL: Eliminates infectious diseases in the body.

 

 

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS JUICE?

“I love, love coffee. I feel like I need it to give me that push to get through the morning and afternoon. It’s a crutch to keep me alert while I coordinate the logistics of shipping and tracking Maine Cottage furniture all across the world. Typically, I’ll consume about six cups a day and know it’s not the healthiest beverage. I chose the Farmer’s Wife juice because the watermelon and cucumber are incredibly hydrating, which helps me stay refreshed and alert. The basil is also a calming scent that I appreciate when having to speak with customers and schedule overnight deliveries from as close as Annapolis to as far as Norway.” —Sara, Customer Service Director

 

A lively color that suggests a youthful and carefree spirit. Mixed Berry is the latest Maine Cottage pink creation that was inspired by a frozen drink. This yummy color has a slight blue undertone that gives it a hint of sophistication. For a fun and friendly addition to any home, go positively pink!

ORANGE: Boost immune system with high doses of Vitamin C.

 

PEAR: Contains Vitamin B to help fight depression.

 

LIME: Help rid the body of free radicals and uric acid.

 

 

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS JUICE?

“I’m constantly on the go and commute two hours each day for work, so it’s hard to plan meals that are healthy. I’m always looking for ways to improve my daily intake of wholesome goodness. Clarity makes me feel energized. The Vitamin B (from the pear) and Vitamin C (from the orange) help me get through my day and forge ahead on to the next colorful design project!” —Sarah, Interior Design Director

Yellow shines with energy, enlightenment and happiness. Our signature color Ale has a cheery disposition and is the perfect companion to other colors. It’s optimism and energy refreshes any room. So, go ahead and let the sun shine in with yellow!

APPLE: Lowers high cholesterol levels for a stronger heart.

 

BEET: Helps body absorb more nutrients and oxygen.

 

GINGER: Relieves pain and frequency of headaches and migraines.

 

 

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS JUICE?

“As the Creative Director of a furniture company I’m wearing many hats, including marketing, product development, merchandising and brand building. Maintaining focus while juggling multiple projects can be a challenge for me. Know the Glow is mostly beet juice which oxidizes the blood and improves the brain’s functionality which helps with… you guessed it, focus.” —Lauren, Vice President and Creative Director

 

There is an intrinsic enthusiasm in red. It’s full of life and energy. At Maine Cottage our richest red is our signature color Tomato, which commands attention while also remaining carefree. Create your own energized space using our passionate palette of refined reds!

BROCCOLI: Aids digestion because it is a smart carb that is high in fiber.

 

PINEAPPLE: Rich in manganese for strong bones.

 

PEAR: Contains Vitamin B to help fight depression.

 

LEMON: Cleanses kidneys and digestive system.

 

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS JUICE?

“I travel a lot and don’t always make the healthiest food choices. So, I chose the Green Machine juice because it’s a great way for me to get fruits (like pear and pineapple) and vegetables (like broccoli and kale) into my daily diet. I usually follow it with ice cream or cookies or both, but at least the lemons are cleansing my system.” —Larry, President

 

Green is an easy way to bring the soothing qualities of the outside indoors. A combination of yellow and blue, green blends the hopefulness of yellow with the emotional calm of blue. Our signature color Wheatgrass was inspired by the feeling of walking barefoot on a freshly cut lawn.

Metropolitan Signature Juice Metro OJ.

 

 

ORANGE: Boosts immune system with high doses of Vitamin C.

 

CARROT: Promotes brighter and more even skin tone.

 

GINGER: Is known to reduce the pain of headaches and migraines.

 

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS JUICE?

“Like so many working women out there, I work long hours and hit a wall around 3pm. My go-to is usually chocolate. The Metro OJ appealed to me because in the afternoon the juice curbs my sweet craving. I tend to get sporadic headaches when I don’t eat chocolate and so I liked the idea of incorporating ginger to combat that ache—plus the orange is invigorating!” —Karyn, Flagship Store Manager

Seeking more optimism and creativity? We encourage bringing orange into one’s life for an uplifting experience. Our Mango color energizes and refreshes the mind and body. As the name implies, it’s smooth and sweet.
