A Juicing Revelation

A Juicing Revelation

A Juicing Revalation

Well it all started in 2006 when we fell in love with Juicing. But it became more serious to us in 2012, when our cousin sent us a link about a guy named Drew Canole,who helped us to understand the realness of juicing as it pertained to how the body benefits from vegetables and fruits on a cellular level.

After he introduced us to a video made by Joe Cross named “Fat, Sick and almost Dead,” our true passion to help the masses came alive. And in 2015 my wife attended the Institute of Integrated Nutrition and became a Certified Health Coach.

Since juicing was our thing, we knew we had to create some great tasting, yet very healthy vegetable and fruit combinations that would help aid our country in the pursuit of complete healthiness and vitality with one person, one juice at a time.

Comfort Food Menu:

Peanut Butter and Kale Smoothie – Peanut Butter, almond milk, banana, kale, (PB) protein

CREAM

CREAM

Cream Concord CASharing the deliciousness (what we call ice cream sandwiches) with local communities was our goal when we opened our first CREAM store. We wanted families who did not have the time or could not afford to make these at home to be able to enjoy an ice cream sandwich. We loved them so much, and we knew others would too. Who doesn’t love mom’s fresh baked cookies paired with thick and creamy ice cream?

In 2010, Jimmy and Gus Shamieh led the Shamieh family in opening the first location in Berkeley, California. Working the store from open to close, the Shamieh family started serving happiness one ice cream sandwich at a time.

We started with cookie ice cream sandwiches, but we soon ventured into other vehicles of happiness. This led us to develop ice cream sandwiches using brownies, do’sants, and fresh off the griddle waffles. Happiness is now served whichever way you like.

Comfort Food Menu:

The Classic – Vanilla ice cream between two chocolate chip cookies

Tip: This is the #1 sold combination!

Lucille's Smokehouse BBQ

You Picked a Fine Time to Feed Me, Lucille

Lucille Buchanan grew up eating good barbecue in her grandma’s lunch shack outside of Greenville. Summers and weekends working for her grandmother taught Lucille how to wow customers with the best barbecue in the land.

After swearing to her granny she’d never share her secrets, Lucille learned the ingredients to the special spice rubs, wet mops and sauces her grandmother used. Besides amazing BBQ selections, Lucille offers stomach-fillers like mac and cheese (a customer favorite), french fries and warm buttermilk biscuits — Lucille’s own addition to the menu.

The peach cobbler sets the down-home, American feel and the relaxed atmosphere and TVs playing sports around makes Lucille’s a great place to go on weekends to relax, drink a large mason jar of lemonade or a glass of beer and enjoy BBQ that slides right off the bone.

Comfort Food Menu: Feast for 2!

Course 1 – Your choice of a cup of soup or house salad or any of the signature half appetizers

Course 2 – A platter of half chicken, four baby back ribs, four St. Louis ribs, PLUS your choice of a hot link, pulled pork, rib tips, brisket burnt ends or tri tip PLUS two signature sides

Course 3 – Your choice of any one of the delicious homemade desserts to share!
