With each helping of restaurant coverage served to us by our friends over at Eater Philly, so increases our time spent in the gym come January. (Mmm...Nutella pizza at Pizzeria Vetri...)

From HipCityVeg's signature Groothie to Sweetgreen's cold-pressed juices, these beverages are the antidote to holiday overindulgence. Drink up!

Ryan Crown has amassed a following of super-loyal fans who insist he's the most knowledgeable juicer around. He'll tailor juices and give advice for just about any problem you've got, and he even runs a delivery service if you want some of the magic delivered right to your door.

Sook Hee's isn't a trendy, nouveau juice bar - it's a time-tested classic. Plenty of juice enthusiasts agree that their produce is some of the freshest around, and their juice always satisfies. Their prices also tend to be just a bit lower than many of their competitors.

3. Lithe Method

Philly's temple of svelteness may be better known for its high-energy classes making creative use of the ballet barre than for its dining options, but they sell great juices both a la carte and as part of full-on detox plans. The juices may look reminiscent of a Blueprint Cleanse, but Lithe has serious workouts in mind, and they supplement their juices with solid food to keep you going. NB: they put their juice production on hold over the holidays, but will be back up and running by mid-January. Juices and food are available even if you don't take their classes.

4. Yellow - A Juice Bar

The machinery is impressive, the fruit and veggies are always super fresh, and the menu hits everything you need in a juice bar, from creative fruit-and-veg blends and green smoothies to basic lemonade that's not too sweet. If you're looking for something a little more chewable, try the beet salad.

5. HipCityVeg

127 S 18th St
Philadelphia, PA 19103
(215) 278-7605

HipCityVeg is not a juice bar. In fact, it's a fast food place (a vegan fast food place, but still). But their signature Groothie is such a status symbol amongst the fashionably fit around Rittenhouse that this list could not be considered complete without it. (There are plenty of very healthy food options, too - and more decadent things like fried "chick'n" and sweet potato fries for when you get sick of all that juice.)

6. Fuel

Fuel is far and away the city's most comprehensive spot for food as, well, fuel. There's juice, of course, and smoothies, but there are also salads, sandwiches, and small plates with plenty of high-quality protein and a menu that includes both calorie counts and WW point values. Theiremployees can definitely help guide you to the best choices to meet your goals.

7. ¡Juice!

Copy Link
2241 Grays Ferry Ave
Philadelphia, PA 19146
(267) 639-2165
Visit Website
This newcomer to Graduate Hospital calls itself the "home of the virgin cocktail," with juice blends on the menu like a cucumber tonic and a bloody mary-inspired mix that seem to cry out for a shot of vodka. And we hear that they're even open to letting you BYO, if you're so inclined. But there are plenty of other superfood add-ins you can opt to spike your drink with instead.

8. Animo Burrito & Juice Bar

1701 Arch St.

Why should you have to choose between healthful juices and burritos? You shouldn't! And you don't! (They use mostly organic ingredients and offer smaller-size burritos and burrito bowls, so you can definitely create a meal that fits with your health goals.)

9. Sip-N-Glo Juicery

932 South St.
Philadelphia, PA 19147
(267) 273-0639
Visit Website
This South Street juicery offers juices and smoothies with tons of add-ins to customize your drink, and they do a lot of fun seasonal mixes to keep things interesting. (It's also conveniently located right by Whole Foods.)

10. Sweetgreen

Sweetgreen does organic cold-pressed juices with a focus on locally sourced ingredients (and some really nice, super-customizable salads, too).
