MixStirs in Sewickley Now Open

MixStirs is proud to announce the opening of its newest location in Sewickley, PA.

The Sewickley MixStirs opened last week with a bang with lines out the door most of the day.  Kids enjoyed taking pictures with Banana Boy, many of which can be seen at the MixStirs Fan Page on Facebook.

Smoothies, wraps, paninis, protein shakes………you can’t get enough!

If you are in the area please stop by and see what has got the town of Sewickley going wild!

Keep a look out for our newest location opening soon in Washington Heights, NYC.

Stir It Up!

Convenience Can Be Healthy Too

Try these quick-grab prepared foods that pump up your health:

  1. Smoothies – Those made with whole fruits, vegetables and yogurt are full of antioxidants, fiber, and calcium.
  2. Mini Yogurt Packs – Yogurt has 100 more milligrams of calcium per serving than milk. Go for those with no added sugar.
  3. Trail Mix – Dried fruits are full of antioxidants. And nuts offer vitamin E, protein and healthy fats. Both are high in calories, so a small handful will do.
  4. Frozen Fruits and Vegetables – They’re processed at the peak of freshness.
  5. Instant Oatmeal – High in fiber and iron, this whole grain beats back heart disease. Skip the flavored, sugary packs.
  6. Whole Grain Cereals and Frozen Waffles –  Fiber-rich whole grains offer lots of nutrients like cancer-fighting selenium and heart-healthy potassium and magnesium.
  7. Low-Sodium, Low-Fat Soups – Try vegetable, bean, or chicken noodle for about 90-170 calories per cup, 2 grams of fat, and 90-470 milligrams of sodium (your daily limit should hover at 2,300 milligrams of sodium).
  8. Nut Butters – Add cashew or almond butter to your peanut butter routine. They’re full of healthy unsaturated oils and protein – but watch the calories.
