Anti-Monday Blue : 42 Juice Bar

Every Monday, I have a seminar from 9-11AM for this term and it has been such a killer. I am not a Monday person myself and on top of that, morning isn’t really a best friend of mine. And yes, I’m one of those people who desperately look for coffee or tea to get started for a brand new day.

Waking up in the morning and dragging myself to the seminar, I was not the happiest person on the earth and was already looking forward to the weekend. But you know, like a proverb says, “The early bird gets the worms” right? Sometimes you encounter something you have been missing out for a long time.

After our seminar, my friend and I decided to go for lunch in town. As we were walking around, she introduced me to this organic juice place called 42 Juice Bar, which now has been added onto the list of my favourite places in Brighton.


This lovely shop is located at 19 Market Street. (It’s near Cafe Rouge and PizzaExpress I would say.) As we walked in, it literally didn’t take me a second to fall in love with this place. (For those who know me, once you go visit, I bet you’d say “yeah.. this is such a miho-place.” haha) Such a cute clean atmosphere, a variety of freshly made colourful drinks and a very friendly lady who was working there. They have such a wide range of drinks which are made with organic vegetables and fruits. (For those nuts milk lovers, they also have got a range of drinks which are blended with almond milk and cashew milk as well.)

And what’s more to adore about this little lovely place is that, all of their freshly made drinks is cold-pressed. This method has abled to save as many vitamins and nutritions as possible until the very last moment when they’re consumed. You must be thinking, “well okay… But what’s really so special about it?”

In a normal juicing method, high-speed cutting and blending ingredients produce heat during those processes. This naughty heat causes oxidation. It kills the rich nutrients and also it becomes crucial that those produced drinks are consumed as soon as possible before the nutrients get destroyed. Cold-press juicing method, on the other hand, is to extract juice by pressing and grinding ingredients and this means there is NO heat produced throughout the juicing process at all. This is not only beneficial to protect so much more nutritions, but also to save them for a longer period of time. (Some even says the cold-pressed juice will last for 3 days without losing any vitamins and nutritions.) Pretty cool stuff right?


As my very exciting first attempt, I picked up “Almond Mylk Green Matcha”. (I should’ve gone for those original green or fruit juices but I mean c’mon… It’s matcha. I couldn’t ignore my roots.) As you can see in the picture, it comes in a bottle with such a cute little tag which tells you exactly what your drink consists. I was surprised at how refreshing the juice was. Though I’m much more used to the texture of smoothies when it comes to healthy green drinks and somehow I was expecting it to be more filling. And some may or may not feel it’s a little pricy for its amount (Mine was 250ml for £3.5). But you know, the ingredients are all organic and it’ll be such a lovely treat for yourself once in a while and I’m definitely going back to try different flavours. Seriously though, do recommend to those healthy juice lovers.

As 42 Juice Bar says “Not all juices are created equal”, from a wide range of healthy & tasty drinks, you can pick a perfect juice which suits your health conditions or just simply how you feel that day. It’ll be such a perfect cute drink to have with your friends on sunny Spring/Summer days too!

Bahhh again, too much talking.
