Nick Hughes (AKA Ninja Nicky) Auraganic Juicery
Smoothies and Cashew Milk
Nick Hughes AKA Ninja Nicky started his health journey after finding out from a friend that diet could heal a bout of panic attacks he was experiencing. After overcoming the attacks he soon became ill for many years with an autoimmune disorder. He was fortunate to realize that all of the meds the doctors recommended him were not going to help his problem and may only effect his symptoms. He put his faith in diet and a new desire to find out what he knew he could not see. Peeling through layers of emotion to eventually find a healed whole body, mind and spirit.
During his journey toward whole food, plant based eating and eventually raw vegan he created a cookie company because he could not find any delicious vegan/gluten free cookies at the markets.
Eventually this led to opening his own juice bar called Auraganic, that has now become a destination for thematic, world class smoothies ranging from Thin mint, that tastes like a Girl Scout cookie to, orange dreamsicle that tastes like a 50/50 bar to, Ayurvedic smoothie that had a perfect mango lassi with healing herbs profile. All raw and vegan. He uses dates as his sweetener for everything and will not compromise cost of ingredients for health. His juice bar also serves a fun variety of food that is all oil free, raw and vegan.
