Press On Juice
Traverse City; pressonjuice.com
In 2012, Kristin Rockwood's health was at low ebb. Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, her skin was discolored, her knuckles hurt, her hair was falling out, and, worst of all, she was unable to keep up with her two young daughters. A radical change in diet followed, as Rockwood moved away from processed foods and began loading up on cold-pressed fruits and vegetables. Her health improved, the pounds melted away, and when she was back chasing her youngsters around, she decided to market a line of juices so that others could enjoy the same benefits without the extra effort and cleanup that juicing can involve. Now there are more than a dozen different concoctions, ranging from an 8-ounce mini-brew to an 18-bottle three-day cleanse package.
