The Beet, inside ReadyFit Meals on Ambassador Caffery, offers fresh juice and smoothies

Oil Center business ReadyFit Meals opened its second location at 3809 Ambassador Caffery Parkway and is also offering a juice and smoothie bar called The Beet.

The Beet is an all-natural juice bar that prepares its products with raw fruits and vegetables without pasteurization or preservatives.

Before opening The Beet, Patti Howell started by selling her juices at area farmers markets and also by custom order. Howell says among the benefits of her juices is that they can jump-start metabolism, help a person change eating habits and increase energy.

ReadyFit Meals offers pre-prepared, health-conscious meals daily from its flagship location in the Oil Center and has additional satellite partners at area health clubs for pre-order delivery. The menu has breakfast, lunch and dinner options with nutritional information and offers meals for special dietary needs, such as gluten-free options.
