The "new year, new me" mindset may be out of style, but what about "new year, new gut?" After months of consuming heavy holiday dishes, sugar-filled desserts, and festive holiday drinks, the new year is the perfect time to give your gut a break with a juice cleanse at local juice shops and restaurants in which to buy fresh pressed juice for your New Year's cleanse.

If you don't have a juicer or don't want to bother gathering all of the fruits and veggies yourself, New Orleans has plenty of juice shops, smoothie bars, and healthy restaurants that can do the juicing for you. Here are 10 places to get cold-pressed juice and juice cleanses around town.
