In 2013, Jerry Lasco found himself in a position that’s becoming more and more common. Years of burning the candle at both ends were taking their toll and he realized that continuing down this path was a recipe for failure and that his health was ultimately going to pay the price. However, the demands of being a hands on parent and running several fast growing businesses were not challenges that he wanted to walk away from. Thus began a personal journey towards health, happiness and life balance.
Jerry and his wife Laura made the commitment to a healthier lifestyle. Hearing about the transformation so many others had seen through diet and nutrition (particularly juicing), they went all-in. “We bought a top of the line juicer and started consuming huge volumes of organic fruits, vegetables and herbs. The results came fast and furious. Within 90 days I was off all of my ‘over stressed, middle age man’ meds and I was sleeping better and feeling stronger than I had in a decade.”
Unfortunately, even after witnessing the results first hand, Jerry and Laura knew that maintaining this commitment would be extremely challenging. “We literally spent hours cleaning and prepping huge mounds of fruits and vegetables to make a couple of glasses of juice.” The newness wore off and they realized that this process was unsustainable—at the same time, an idea was forming.
In 2014, the couple that built their business on decadent restaurants and wine bars opened their first juice bar, FLOW. “It made perfect sense. We didn’t need to cut out the pleasures in life—we just needed to balance them.”
“After almost three years of juicing and maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle, I couldn’t be happier with the results. I’m stronger and actually accomplish more than I did before this change, yet there was no compromise. I didn’t have to give up the foods or wine that I love, or take on a slower paced lifestyle. The science behind juicing is simple—it’s about getting your body high concentrations of the nutrients that it thrives on, in the most efficient means possible.”
“Cheers to your wellbeing and to finding your Flow!”
