Plant-based Vegan

My name is Chris. I’m 17 years old and I am a plant-based vegan. I enjoy going on adventures, playing guitar, drawing, and vigorously eating fruit. I strongly believe that health is your greatest wealth.

Ally Bechtold's Best Friend

This is Freddy. He is 20 years old and a brick town native. Freddy’s family owns Azteca a well known Mexican Restaurant in Belmar, NJ, so he has grown up on the shore and in the service industry. Freddy is a cool, loyal and kind soul, who loves his family and his many friends dearly. He enjoys basketball, football, WWE, and raiding Ally’s fridge. Stop by and say hello!



Anthony is a father of 1 and new husband to Lisa Marino. He comes from a criminal justice background (he has super detective and observation skills) and loves to bump music on his turntables. In his free time you can find him at home with his beautiful wife and daughter Veah (1 year old) with their giant labradoodle, Rufio, by their side. He is with us 4-5 days a week and normally in the vitamin aisle!



Personal Trainer, Plant-based Lifestyle

This is Mike. Mike is a 23 year old certified personal trainer. Mike spends his free time outdoors, with his family and lovely girlfriend. He is truly a gem (also a gemini). He is our #1 juice-bar guy, you can find him working juice-bar 4-5 days a week! Come pay him a visit, nobody likes a slow shift! We have a blast serving you!



This is Joe. We found this guy in a ditch somewhere. We felt bad for him, so we dusted him off and decided to hire him as a cashier. So far, we’ve only had minimal regrets about hiring him – only time will tell just how bad (or swell?) of a decision it was.

Joe is a bit of an old soul. He is a shy, reserved gentleman, but is truly a kid at heart. Sometimes being silly to the point of obnoxiousness, and most times making jokes that go over our heads, we enjoy him as is! He first became enlightened about “alternative” healing and nutrition back in 2012. Joe is mostly a hermit; but when he does occasionally venture outside his cave, he enjoys kareoke, dancing, and even going to the gym, He also claims that he is akin to the Albatross…whatever that means.

Frank enjoys using his knowledge to help others with their health woes and nutrition questions.
