Disclosure: I am really excited to write a review of the products I sampled from Urban Remedy. I love their mantra: Food Is Healing. As always, all opinions in this post are honest and my own. You can read more about my disclosure policies here.
“Food is healing” -Urban Remedy.
Do you agree? I do!
It’s healing in so many more ways than just nurturing my body. I find comfort in it. From the way it smells when I am preparing it, to the texture and flavor on my tongue or even the way it satisfies me when I am hungry or stressed. I also find comfort in the colors on a plate and the glow my skin has when I eat clean food.
Urban Remedy does all of this for me.
When I first peeked at their site, I was sucked in. The food is stunning. The color is so natural and honestly beautiful. It’s real, raw, clean food. I almost felt healed just looking at it.
I guess that is to be expected when you have a health guru preparing your food for you. The creator, Neka Pasquale, is a licensed acupuncturist, herbalist,and certified Chinese nutritionist. If anyone knows how to heal a body with food, it’s her.
Reasons Urban Remedy rocks and I will be ordering again. (And why you should, too!)
- Everything is made fresh and shipped right to your door. As convenient as it gets!
- Raw, gluten free, vegan ingredients.
- Highly nutritious foods. Ginger, spinach, kale, quinoa, beets… need I go on?
- Priced just right. I don’t think these prices are too steep for the quality + convenience you get!
- I can snack without guilt.
- It’s beautiful. I mean seriously beautiful.
What made me decide to love it so much?
It was like Christmas morning when I received my box. It was loaded with ice since the ingredients are all fresh and time sensitive. I wasn’t even sure where to start digging in. I wanted it all!
I literally loved every single product I got to sample and that’s saying something. Although I eat healthy and enjoy healthy foods, I don’t always like everything I try. Especially when it comes to juice blends because let’s face it, they can be a little weird.
Have I ever told you how much I hate beets?… Another story, another day. In a nutshell, I avoid them at all costs because they taste like pure dirt. It was a shock to me that I had a change of heart when I tried the After Party juice from Urban Remedy. (Ingredients: Carrot, Apple, Lemon, Beet, Ginger.) WOAH. It was amazing.
Here is a look at a few more of my favorites!

Mint Cacao Chip Ingredients: Almond Milk, Banana, Cashew, Vanilla Extract, Stevia, Spinach, Spearmint, Cacao Nibs I am normally not a fan of anything mint with chocolate, but I couldn’t stop sipping on this! I think I like it because it is fresh and real ingredients.
