In California, juice fans trumpet 'reboot' detox
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Mixing kale, cucumber and spinach at her home in Venice Beach, yoga teacher Kia Miller explains her passion for juice, which fans say can trigger a health "reboot".
"I like to do it twice a year, it's like a reset button. You have an opportunity to think about your relationship with food," the 44-year-old told AFP in the trendy ocean-front district.
"It's a wonderful way to get powerful nutrients in your body," added Miller, whose house has been transformed into an ashram, a place of peace away from the bustle of Los Angeles, half an hour away.
Juice bars are everywhere in southern California, which has long embraced New Age culture. In upmarket areas like Santa Monica or Beverly Hills, they are on every street corner.
