Urban Remedy Supports Glide SF 

San Rafael, CA, March 7, 2013, – Urban Remedy (www.UrbanRemedy.com) – a certified organic food company that utilizes exceptionally-sourced ingredients to create cold-pressed juices, juice-cleanses, wellness kits, healthy meals and snacks – announced today that it will support the San Francisco-based non-profit GLIDE for the entirety of March, in support of National Nutrition Month.

GLIDE’s “Daily Free Meals” program is the only San Francisco service to provide three nutritious meals per day – 364 days a year – to the city’s poor, homeless and hungry, all offered within an atmosphere of respect, acceptance and compassion. Through their partnership, for every purchase made at Urban Remedy’s site during March, using coupon code “URCARES,” a full day of healthy, nutritious food will be donated to GLIDE in an effort to bring more nutritious meals to people in need.

“GLIDE is tirelessly working to help fight hunger on a local level,” says Urban Remedy’s founder, Neka Pasquale, L.Ac. M.S. “We have a shared mission to nourish the community in a thoughtful, helpful and educational manner. Everyone should have access to healthy and nutritious food.”

In 2013, Urban Remedy’s partnership with GLIDE resulted in more than 450 meals provided for people in the San Francisco Bay area. This year, Urban Remedy’s objective is to more than double the number of meals donated given the recent expansion of their innovative menu offerings and nationwide delivery.

“We are thankful that Urban Remedy has returned to help us raise awareness and resources for families in need, “ says Janice Mirikitani, co-founder of GLIDE.   “We are enormously appreciative of their consistent support and help in finding influential ways to achieve wellness for all.”

At the end of National Nutrition Month, Neka and her team will visit GLIDE to spend the day volunteering and to present the community with Urban Remedy’s donation. For more on Urban Remedy, please visit http://www.UrbanRemedy.com.

Urban Remedy Welcomes Cindy Crawford as Partner

by Neka on February 4, 2014, 41 comments

With a Shared Belief that Food is Healing, Organic Urban Remedy Aligns with “Model” Healthy Living Advocate to Demystify Nutrition and Nourish Bodies and Minds

Cindy Crawford Urban Remedy brand partner

We are ecstatic to announce our exclusive partnership with iconic supermodel Cindy Crawford. As an impassioned Urban Remedy Board Member and brand ambassador, Cindy Crawford will shine a light on “healthy living,” and help bring Neka’s teachings and products to the masses.

“I have always sought out expert advice to live a more healthy, balanced life,” says Cindy Crawford.  “It is confusing to decipher between diet fads, ingredient trends and true expertise, and – like everyone – I was overwhelmed until I met Neka. Together, we want to make it easier for people to access credible information and healthy well-balanced food that tastes great.”

After being introduced by a friend, Cindy Crawford found an authority and source of truth about health and wellness in Urban Remedy’s founder, Neka Pasquale, L.Ac. M.S., who has spent nearly two decades committed to health, healing and nutrition in Marin County, California. Urban Remedy combines Neka’s passion for healing with her deep culinary roots that stem from her Jewish and Italian grandmothers, or as she tells it, “the best of both worlds.”

Urban Remedy aims to help people make the right nutrition choices for themselves and their families, whether they are already informed or are “health beginners” with a specific goal or condition. Neka’s holistic approach to total health incorporates the medicinal properties of food as medicine in all of her creations.  She works with people to assess their needs and creates bespoke wellness programs and products that are tailored to specific goals.

“Not all “healthy” food is created equal,” says Neka Pasquale, L.Ac. M.S. “Our goal is to share credible information and insight, and create trusted products that offer consumers delicious, well-balanced food with amazing health benefits.”

After experiencing dramatically positive results utilizing food as medicine in her private wellness practice, Licensed Acupuncturist, herbalist and certified Chinese nutritionist, Neka Pasquale L.Ac. M.S. founded Urban Remedy in 2009.  In 2012, Neka partnered with Santa Monica technology studio Science Inc. to transform her local juice business into a robust platform with nationwide distribution.

“Our goal is to make freshly made products and information easy and convenient for people nationwide, “ says Science CEO and Founder Mike Jones.  “The opportunistic partnership with Cindy Crawford is the next step towards building Urban Remedy into a leading national healthy living and wellness brand at the forefront of discovery and innovation.”

United by their shared passion for healthy living and the belief that knowledge is a fundamental component of empowerment, Cindy Crawford will use her platform to share trusted, relevant information and inspire people to take steps towards healthier living through better food.

“This is a new, exciting phase in my career, where I am able to follow my passion and support a growing company that is meaningful, relevant and interesting to me,” says Cindy Crawford. “In Neka Pasquale I have found a credible and trustworthy healthy living expert who is creating innovative products that are the very best for me and my family. I feel it important to share her wisdom with others to help demystify healthy nutrition and trigger change.”

Urban Remedy’s menu contains a wide variety of satisfying certified organic health solutions, cold-pressed juices, shakes, juice cleanses, meals and healthy snacks made with unique ingredients ranging from raw cacao and coconut to dandelion greens, turmeric and burdock root, all selected for their specific health benefits. Urban Remedy’s robust suite of products sells nationwide to customers on its website and to visitors of its branded stores in the San Francisco Bay Area.

 

3 Tips for all Natural Power Packed Snacks

by Neka on October 24, 2013, no comments

When the afternoon rolls around and your tummy starts rumbling… it’s snack time! An afternoon snack is the perfect opportunity to refuel with a healthy treat. Whether you are hiking outdoors, trapped in the office, or packing your child’s afternoon school surprise, a nutritious snack gives your body natural energy to power through the rest of the day.

 Krispy Kale Chips

Satisfy your salty cravings by substituting regular potato chips with gluten-free raw kale chips. Salty and crunchy, this gluten-free option supports stomach health, while eliminating the inflammation and fatigue that would come with a gluten-filled greasy choice. At Urban Remedy, we make our kale chips sesame crusted or cheesy!

Eat a Date, Mate

Reach for a sweet chewy date the next time you are craving that sugary afternoon snack. Dates are high in fiber absorbing LDL-cholesterol, and naturally replenish energy levels. At Urban Remedy, we make our gluten-free cookies with dates, and they are sinfully delicious…

Screw Soda… Reach for Herbal Lemonade

Put that soda down! Try making some fresh herbal lemonade to rev up on those dreary fall afternoons. Natural sweeteners like stevia and agave nectar maintain steady blood sugar levels, supporting a consistent mood… while fresh herbs like mint cool the body down in the heat. Mixing fresh lemon juice with all natural stevia or agave nectar, some water, and a sprig of mint makes for an afternoon sipper refreshing for any age!

Super Sweets: Natural Sweeteners that are Actually Good for You

by Neka on August 21, 2013, 8 comments

Healthy alternatives to sugar
      Satisfying your sweet tooth and snacking healthy are no longer mutually exclusive. At Urban Remedy, we couldn’t go without our sweets and so have found yummy substitutes for refined sugars. We’re just here to help satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you slender.

What Is So Bad about Refined Sugar?

      Refined is an adjective best kept away from your sugar. White, or refined, sugar has gone through a purification process that eliminates all vitamins and minerals, with little more than a remote possibility of nutritional value, and creating a product that is “pure” and easy to duplicate. We hate to break it to you, but the only thing pure about white sugar is that it is purely unhealthy.
      Without any of the vitamins or minerals of raw, natural sugar cane, eating white sugar satisfies your taste buds and adds calories to your diet without supplying your body with any vitamins or minerals of nutritional value. What a waste!

Sweet Substitutes

      Now, finding natural sweetening substitutes for sugar has never been easier. Here are two great options for sugar substitutes!

Stevia

Stevia is a 100% natural sweetener derived from plant leaves. Free of carbohydrates, calories, and caffeine, stevia is a wonderful solution to satisfy your sweet cravings.
At Urban Remedy, we use stevia in our pineapple coconut protein shake. Drink up for a quick trip to your sweetest paradise!

Agave

Agave Nectar has a low glycemic index, which provides sweet flavor without the unhealthy blood sugar spike associated with white sugars. This sweetener is big on yum and long on fun!
You can find agave nectar in our brittles and other meals in the bottle!
Dates

Dates are high in fiber absorbing LDL-cholesterol and naturally replenish energy levels, making them the perfect natural candy. At Urban Remedy, we make our gluten-free cookies with dates, and they are sinfully delicious. At home you can throw 1-2 in a smoothie, use them as a sweetener in recipes, or pop one in your mouth for a tasty sweet treat.

          Next time your sweet tooth has you craving sugar, satisfy it naturally! Feed it a naturally sweet treat, for a satisfying snack and a healthy body! Dessert is finally good for you. What a sweet deal!

4 Foods That Actually Protect Your Kidneys

Healthy Kidneys… Longer Life… Loads More Fun!

5 foods that protect kidneys

Jane E. Brody of The New York Times recently investigated kidney cancer, a lesser-funded, yet vast-reaching killer among cancer species. Our kidneys are important as they rid waste from the bloodstream, and emit important hormones that stimulate our bone marrow’s production of red blood cells, maintain our calcium levels, and regulate our blood pressure levels. High-profile work if you ask us!

Studies have shown that diet can significantly affect one’s chances for developing kidney cancer. Scared you’re at risk? Luckily, our bodies are resilient! Knowing which kidney-friendly foods to eat can actually help you strengthen and maintain the health of your kidneys, and live longer!

  • Diabetes is a common risk factor in the development of kidney cancer. Studies have found links between the nutritional value of superfood chia seeds and diabetes prevention. Filled with healthy omega-oils, easily digestible proteins, & antioxidants, chia seeds are easily blended into any juice or smoothie, and add tasty crunch simply sprinkled over a salad. At Urban Remedy, we use chia seeds when blending up a green smoothie!
Health benefits of chia seeds
  • Sweet and tangy, raspberries purify the blood, benefiting the kidneys as well as the liver. We love raspberries in the Warrior juice in our Signature Juice Cleanse!
Juice cleanse from Urban Remedy
  • Cardamom is actually prescribed medicinally in some cultures to break down kidney stones. Nourish your kidneys with a healthy dose of cardamom… on us!
The health benefits of Cardamom
  • Unlike white sugars, agave nectar contains a low glycemic index, which creates natural sweetness without causing unhealthy blood sugar spikes. Steady blood sugar levels keep organs like the kidneys… involved in sifting through our blood and weeding out toxins… functioning at a constant rate rather than overworking them during sudden rapid increases. Urban Remedy brittles are sweetened with a touch of agave for that perfect kidney-aiding taste.

Good kidney health is well worth the trouble of restructuring your diet. Add these ingredients into the mix for a longer life, a happier body, and more energy for all of your summer fun!

Passion Poppers: A relationship devoid of passion is never worth the trouble. Thankfully, nature produces some of the best ingredients to fuel your fire.

 

  • Cinnamon: Spice up your love life with a dash of Cinnamon. This spice, warm and sweet, reduces fatigue and acts as a natural aphrodisiac. Keep things spicy with a dash of cinnamon and enjoy your summer of love.

you are designing for runway not she by sheree Teens are quickly moving toward a new found state of independence. This often includes finding a new fashion sense and dressing at least in your teen's mind like an individual. That said, your teen's somewhat skewed sense of style may need a helping hand at times. Decide if you really want bridal shoes to wear for 1 day only. The ultimate bridal shoes will go perfect with your wedding dress, but you will have a hard time matching them with regular outfits. It's fine if that's what you really want, but it may do you good to remember that "perfect" doesn't have to be "impractical".. Competition: A Major ThreatThe competitive rivalry within the retail industry is the major threat that Coach is currently facing. Coach currently holds 28% of the US handbag market. The figure below shows that a major chunk of Coach's revenue comes from sales of women's handbags. Enter into this a surprisingly complex tale about revenge and family. The capital of Area 11 has been devastated and the central part of it is now made up of a massive Brittania stronghold. The areas surrounding it are in ruins and are being demolished to make way for new expansions and to push down the Elevens even more. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a bus for a vampire. This is the world of Mercy Thompson, one that looks a lot like ours but is populated by those things that go bump in the night. He was a very well educated man. He studied Art History at the University of Monpellier, and then in 1971 enrolled at the Sorbonne in Paris. Lacroix had aspired to be a museum curator and so went to complete a program in museum studies at the Ecole du Louvre. The sidekick played the role of a Greek chorus, providing exposition while giving the hero someone to talk to and the reader someone to relate to. But oftentimes, this meant that they got shortchanged in the costume department. Despite being bastions of truth and justice dedicated to righting wrongs and sticking up for the downtrodden, a hero remains a vain person at heart and in order to maintain their superiority and popularity, they often clad their sidekicks in degrading and humiliating outfits. The sporty trend is a little more difficult to pull off since there isn't one basic characteristic you can look for. The upside of this is the versatility and ability to pull off this look with items already in your closet. The sporty trend falls into four simple categories according to fashion experts, "the tomboy, the sporty flapper, the urban dancer, and the Bond bombshell." On the casual to formal scale, this fad falls somewhere between gym wear and weekend, glamorous casual..Thrifty NW Mom
