Moon Juice was created by Amanda Chantal Bacon: World-traveling chef, mama, sustainable lifestyle leader, and passionate food educator.
Moon Juice represents a holistic lifestyle that goes far beyond juices, milks, and snacks. It’s a healing force, an etheric potion, a cosmic beacon for those seeking out beauty, wellness and longevity.
People come to us for daily nourishment, beauty foods, and high-powered natural remedies.
The first Moon Juice shop opened on Rose Avenue in Venice, California in 2011. We were thrilled to open our second retail location on Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake two years later, and most recently our third shop on Melrose Place in 2016.
We would love to create a custom menu for your next event, video or photo shoot, office picnic or retreat. Email us at email@example.com to learn more about our offerings.
A Word From Our Founder
I believe that food is as much about pleasure as healing; creativity as sustenance; and simplicity as the exquisite.
When I compose a recipe, I draw inspiration from both my far flung travels and my local farmers markets; the traditional pairings of my culinary training and the chefs I have worked with; holistic remedies and artisanal producers. When I create a juice or a milk or a cookie I want it not only to taste extraordinary, but also to work synergistically to heal and enhance your beauty, brain, body and spirit at the deepest level.
I created Moon Juice for people interested in a new way of living. Not a way where you have to erase your past, but a way fueled by excitement to help yourself live better. Our only intention is to add goodness and beauty to your life.
Everyday, I witness people’s glee as they have that first bite, first sip, first conversation, and as they realize these medicinal foods really work. They're real, they're functional, they're here, and they're life changing. I know because they changed my own.
In 2006, I began studying the power of raw, medicinal foods to heal the hypothyroid condition I had had since I was a teen, in addition to my severe allergies to wheat, sugar, and cow dairy. Although I was still working as a chef in fine dining, at this juncture my whole diet changed. I ate primarily vegetables and legumes from the farmers market, and foods that would serve as hormonal adaptogens. Within a few months, I noticed a radical shift. My next round of blood work revealed that my thyroid hormone levels were back to normal.
Working in fine dining was amazing, but my own transformative experience – backed up by extensive blood tests, the scrutiny of several physicians, renewed feelings of vitality, and a shift in my personality, immunity, appearance, and thought – inspired me to create Moon Juice. These live, medicinal foods changed me from the inside out.
That is what Moon Juice is – not just our products – but rather a healing force, an etheric potion, a cosmic beacon for those seeking out beauty, wellness, and longevity.
There is nothing I want more than to share this experience and education with as many people as I can.
