“Our goal is to provide customers with a healthier take on their favorite breakfast and lunch items and to also change the mindset of our guests who equate healthy with bland foods,” says Chris Kingen, founder of Wellness Grub. “At Wellness Grub, we use 100% organic ingredients, so our customers love and feel good about what they’re putting into their bodies. We also use ingredients known for their powerful health benefits.”
Prior to Wellness Grub, Kingen worked exhausting hours as a celebrity bodyguard for high-profile clients including music producer Dr. Dre, songstress Lisa Presley and international diplomats. In order to stay at peak performance, he would travel with his trusty NutriBullet and make high-energy, nutrient-dense smoothies.
Open to both Equinox members and non-members, Wellness Grub serves grab-n-go, cold-pressed juices, smoothies, shots and tonics made with 100% organic, locally-sourced produce, as well as raw superfood bites and desserts to fuel and replenish the body and mind. Many menu items are Kingen’s original blends.
Smoothies are reverse osmosis water-based, hand-blended and measured to the exact ounce to ensure the taste and quality of each product is always consistent. For optimal quality and an eco-friendly approach, products are packaged in glass bottles.
To meet the demand of fitness enthusiasts and body-building professionals who frequent the juice bar, Wellness Grub will also feature new options next month including free-range chicken, tuna salad and sous-vide eggs, which can be ordered with or without avocado toast.
