I always love a walk down Maryland Avenue, so I was very excited to visit Rasa Juice Store on the corner of Maryland and State Circle. More than a beverage store, Rasa is in the business of wellness. I sat down with owner Lisa Consiglio Ryan–and a delicious bottle of juice–to learn more.
Lisa’s story started when she assessed her relationship with food and wanted to share the knowledge she’d gained. As I’ve personally experienced the benefits of making body-specific food choices, I was nodding along as Lisa emphasized that a wellness plan looks different for every person.
Rasa Juice Store offers cold pressed, organic juices and plant based snacks, sundries, and gifts. Products are sourced from women owned local businesses or made in their own commercial kitchen.
Everything in the store offers encouragement and motivation, from juice labels encouraging you to flourish to candles begging to be a hostess gift or birthday present.
A certified wellness coach, Lisa is also the author of the best-selling book, Go Clean, Sexy You: A Seasonal Guide to Detoxing and Staying Healthy. Writes Lisa, the book offers yummy recipes and a whole philosophy on how to live a life healthy, happy, and overall free of numbers.
RASA, which translates to “nectar of the gods” in multiple languages including Hindu and Sanskrit, is truly personified in Lisa’s shop, which offers delivery and soon will be expanding to a second location.
