TJS’ Elle Harford grew up in a small town in British Columbia surrounded by the kind of lush nature Canada is known for, where everyone has a vegetable garden, and eating fresh, produce-filled meals is organic life as everyone knows it. But for the last 10 years, Harford has called Las Vegas home, and clean eating and healthy living hasn’t been as easy as it was during her former life in her northern town.
“[With] so many temptations and limited options, I admit I veered off in my early twenties,” says Harford of Sin City life. “But, naturally, like a river that flows to the ocean, I found my way back.
Harford is a store manager at TJS and calls working with us “a dream come true. “Since eating raw and organic food is something I’m passionate about, it’s been very rewarding to be able to share it with everyone in our community instead of just my friends.”
Read how Harford puts her stamp on a little section we like to call Friends Who Juice as she opens up about health, happiness, and what, er, gets her (TJS) juices flowin’.
Elle Being Elle
When I’m working at The Juice Standard I feel…happy! It’s my oasis in the desert.
My “quote to live by” is…”Love the life you live; live the life you love.”
What motivates me to get up in the morning is…my family.
The best advice I’ve ever received Is…“Don’t waste time doing something you’re not passionate about.”
My favorite charity Is…Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada. It helped my family in a time of need.
My future goals are…to keep following my bliss; start meditating; read more books; and spend more quality time with the family.
If I could go anywhere TOMORROW, I’d…first head to Germany to visit my Oma (grandmother), and then, to Australia.
Something that scares me is…creepy kids in scary movies.
The very best part of me is…my calmness.
The No. 1 thing I’d tell my younger self…There are two: “Save your money” and “wear sunscreen.”
If I had to pick a theme song for my life it would be…evolving! I love music, so I feel like my theme song changes all the time. Of late I’d have to say, Gravity by DJ Fresh featuring Ella Eyre. I dedicated it to someone special recently. (TJS: “Awwwww!)
Why We Heart Her
I juice because…It makes me feel amazing!
After a cleanse I feel…light as a feather. And, accomplished.
When people ask, I tell them my fave TJS flave is…Bee Effective. It’s so green tasting, and there’s coconut water in it (yum!).
(Speaking of…a topic I just can’t enough of is…coconut oil. Its uses are endless. I could go on forever.)
My advice to a new-bee juicer is…drink lots of water; listen to your body; and keep your calendar clear and a restroom near!
