Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes authors Carly de Castro, Hedi Gores, and Hayden Slater to the store to discuss and sign their new book, Juice: Recipes for Juicing, Cleansing, and Living Well, on Sunday, August 31st at 3pm.

Juicing was once considered a fringe practice of raw-food zealots, but now it has become a widely accepted source of vital nutrients and an integral part of a fit and healthy lifestyle. In this full-color health guide and cookbook (which really only requires a blender to use) the founders of Los Angeles-based Pressed Juicery demonstrate seventy-five of their most popular juices, including signature beverages like Chocolate Almond and Coconut Mint Chip. Also included are detailed instructions on how to do a juice cleanse safely, the benefits of juicing, and testimonials from those who have experienced personal health transformations.

Carly de Castro, Hedi Gores, and Hayden Slater are the founders of Pressed Juicery, a Los Angeles-based chain of juice shops with more than twenty locations in Northern and Southern California. Pressed Juicery has been featured in numerous magazines, TV and radio programs, and websites.
