Healing Through Food: My Organic Juice in Boca Raton
No stranger to healthy eating, Silverman was always a bit of a self-described health nut. Before joining the area's newest cold-pressed juicery, she operated her own raw food business and also worked as vice president and health director for Juiceteria in Boca Raton. Silverman said she left when she realized the company wasn't using all-organic produce in every juice, something she did not agree with. It wasn't until she met My Organic Juice owners -- husband-and-wife team Ben and Karolyn Fox -- that she decided to help them brand and grow their business.

"After trying all the so-called organic juice bars out there, My Organic Juice was the only one I felt truly inspired to put my name and reputation on," Silverman told Clean Plate Charlie.
Silverman began helping with each of the company's 12 recipes and today operates as a personal promoter and a cleanse and health coach aiding people going through the company's one-, three-, five- and ten-day cleanses. As vice president, she's also been instrumental in helping to develop a new product line of superfood juices, shots, and new juice recipes that include blue-green algae supplement E3 Live, cancer-fighting tumeric, ginger, and raw coconut.
Today, not quite a year old, My Organic Juice is serving some of the most delicious -- and nutritious -- juices in South Florida. It's thanks to founder Karolyn, who -- after battling celiac disease and cancer -- attended nearby Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach to learn how to heal herself through raw, living foods. During that process, she became more familiar with juicing and began feeling healthier. It changed her life so completely that she is now cancer-free and living without celiac symptoms and decided to share her success story with others through juice.
"So many people are living off the typical American diet and not feeling well," said Silverman. "When we feed ourselves the right food, we feel good, we're happy, and our lives are that much better every day."
