Our Story

( Owner / Founder : Cassandra Quarantello )

Nourished By Nature was born from a desire and a passion to help spread awareness of the importance of what we use to fuel, nourish and heal our body.

Owner, Cassandra Quarantello, started her journey to health over 10 years ago.

As a child she developed a very weak and compromised immune system causing her to be hospitalized several times. Soon followed major stomach issues, ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome and becoming lactose intolerant. 

It wasn’t until years later that Cassandra started to connect her health to what food she was eating and the products she was using.  

While attending Rutgers University, she started to become aware of the benefits of eating a plant based diet. Her compassion for animals and the immediate feeling of change in her health with this new lifestyle, she decided to become a vegetarian. “As crazy as it may sound I was born to be a vegetarian. I began to incorporate juicing into my daily routine and the change was positively drastic. I felt amazing . My immune system was getting stronger and in about a year my stomach issues where completely gone and I rarely got sick .” 

Cassandra has expanded her knowledge for her own personal benefits and now she wants to share it with the world.  

After parting ways with her position within the corporate world, she was unsure of the path she wanted to take in life. One afternoon while  discussing options over a juice with her mother, her mother encouraged her to open her own cold pressed juice company . “ My parents are both entrepreneurs, so working for myself never scared me . All I needed was the encouragement and I hit the ground running.” 

Nourished by Nature launched in November 2014 and has since continued to grow and expand in products and locations,  as well as being actively involved in the local community. 

“Juicing changed my life, it brings me such joy when I can share my passion with others and see it positively effect theirs as well. In no way do I claim that juicing can cure anyone, I am not a doctor, I just know what worked for me. Your health IS your wealth. You only have one body why wouldn’t you want to take care of it.” 

We are excited to announce we will be relocating to a larger and more advanced facility in Belmar in early 2017 ! Stay tuned for more information.

Why Cold Pressed Juice And Whats Different About it?

Cold-pressing juice is a method of juicing that enables nutrient dense and live enzyme packed juice to be bottled without preservatives or pasteurization while maintaining a 3-4 day shelf life . It is made with a hydraulic press that uses thousands of pounds of pressure to extract the maximum amount of juice from fresh fruits and vegetables. No heat or oxygen is produced in the process, so no nutrients are lost or destroyed. Typical household juicers and juice bar juicers are most likely centrifugal machines. The heat developed from the process and blade of these machines oxidizes the juice while separating nutrients naturally found in the whole fruits and vegetables, rendering those nutrients that make it into the juice less pure. That juice must be consumed immediately due to the fact that the nutrients and enzymes die quickly, within the first 15 min of being juiced. Cold pressed juices are known to have higher nutrient and vitamin content, live enzymes, and will only start to naturally break down after 72 hours, allowing this juice to be bottles and consumed over the proceeding days. In the end cold pressed juice is one of the purest, raw and nutrient dense juice you can consume. Drinking cold pressed juice can help you increase your daily raw fruit and vegetable intake as well as whole food vitamins. Many people swear by the health benefits of cold pressed juice and attribute it to increased energy, weight loss and better overall health . We are not doctors and can not guarantee these results …but we can tell you its delicious.

Common FAQs

There are a few different methods of juicing. Most common juicers are ‘centrifugal’ and process is as followed : A blade inside a juicer spins at a high speed which results in the generation of heat. Fruits and veggies are passed through the machine and shredded while separating the fibers from the juice. Heat from this blade and process oxidizes and separates nutrients naturally found in whole fruit and vegetables rendering those nutrients less pure. This juice must be consumed immediately, due to the fact that the compromised nutrients and enzymes die quickly ( within the first 15 min after being juiced) . Nourished by Nature uses a different method of juicing called cold pressed. Cold pressing is a method that enables juice to be bottled without preservation or pasteurization . This juicing method produces the most pure and nutrient rich juice.

We use a large commercial cold pressed juicer called the Good Nature x1 . After the fruit and veggies are prepared they are ground by a slow moving blade. The resulting pulp then drops in to a woven cloth bag that is then pressed by two stainless steal plates which place thousands of pounds of pressure on either side of the bag to extract every last drop . This process producers little to no heat, which results in delicious, flavor-filled juice with incredible nutritional value and intact nutrients and enzymes. The juice can then be bottles and kept for three to five days ( depending on the content ). The finished juice contains five times amount of vitamins and live enzymes as a centrifugal juicer.

HPP stands for “High Pressure Processing” and is used to preserve juice without heat .  It preserves and sterilizes food and juice by applying high pressure.   Similar to pasteurization, HPP extends the shelf life of raw juices up to 30 days. The high pressure deactivates certain micro-organisms and enzymes in the food. This slows the decomposition by stopping the chemical activity caused by micro-organisms.

The drawback for a consumer is that you will be drinking a sterilized juice which may have a compromised nutrient value and could be as old as 30 days . Any juice that is purchased in a bottle at a third party store or purchased online and shipped to you is required to be pasteurized . WE DON’T USE HPP. Rest assure that all of the juice we make is made fresh to order when orders are placed.  We press our juice in store 2-3 times a week, and they are promptly removed from our fridge after the listed expiration date. 
We believe, at Nourished, that one of the main benefits of a juice cleanse is to give your body a break with the support of organic energy to help heal and detox . Harmful toxins are in the air we breathe, food we eat, products we use and beverages we drink .  Our bodies use much of its energy breaking down food in the digestion track. Toxins are then processed through the liver. This is our bodies natural cleansing and detoxing process. By removing solid food and replacing it with only raw, organic , nutrient-rich juice, the body is fueled and little digestion needed. This nutrient dense, raw, live and vitamin-packed juice is quickly absorbed in the lining of the stomach. This provides the immediate absorption of organic nutrients and pure energy, with the added benefit of natural healing properties.
The body saves the extra energy and uses it to flush the digestion track , reduce inflammation and help cleanse and rest the detoxing organs. This time spent cleansing allows the body to divert its attention to issues, injuries, and ailments that need extra TLC. After a three to six day cleanse most people feel more energized , lighter, clear-minded , well-rested and leaner. In 3 -6 days the system has likely flushed any remaining particles in the digestion tract, reduced inflammation throughout the body, and rid your body of most allergens and toxins . Slowly introducing food groups back into the diet is recommended, as you will be able to see how specific foods impact your body and will encourage you to make better health choices, in the future.

What to Expect When Doing a Cleanse

When starting a cleanse we suggest yo go on a pre-cleanse diet, which is a plant-based diet, for 2-3 days ( a one day minimum is highly recommended ). During this time you should slowly eliminate things like: sugar, coffee, meat, and dairy from your diet prior to your cleanse. The day before you start your cleanse, your diet will consist of vegan diet with no stimulants and rich in fruit, veggies ,  and light grains. We recommend the day before a cleanse eating salads, brothy plant based soups , veggies and fruit. Keep your diet light and simple to allow an easy transition from food to liquid. This is not necessary but highly recommended. In our experience those who followed these recommendations had an easier and more pleasant experience.
Everyone has a different experience ranging from pleasant to not-so-pleasant . Individual observations consist of ( but are not limited to ) increased energy, no hunger, restful sleep, and an overall feeling of lightness and well-being. On the flip side, some individuals go through minor “withdrawal” symptoms, which can include: headaches, irritability, feeling tired, acid reflux, and frequent bathroom use. Headaches is the most common negative side effect. Not everyone experiences these symptoms, and everybody is different. The experience often depends on current diet, health, and how you have prepped for the cleanse. The longer the preparation yields a smoother transition. A lot of variables need to be considered when talking about reactions to fasting. Our suggestions again is to prepare your body before had if you are worried.
While on a cleanse you will not be consuming any solid food, vitamins , supplements and or medication ( please consult your doctor first if your on medication ). You are encouraged to drink herbal or green tea , water  and if necessary you may have lettuce, cucumbers and watermelon if you need to eat something .
Again, everyone is different, most people have a lean feeling, more energy, and an overall feeling of well-being. We suggest that you continue on a post-cleanse diet, which is slowly reintegration of each food group to your diet, one day at a time and sticking to an all vegetarian diet (with no stimulants) for at least one day after completion. Most people experience a “shrinking of the stomach” and are satisfied with smaller meals.
The most common effects we hear from customers post cleanse is they feel lighter , more energized , have a clear mind and desire to make better food and health choices.
