The Core's goal is to encourage people to eat and drink a bit healthier and discover he benefits of freshly extracted juices for your health. If you put the right amount of balanced nutrients into your body so much starts to improve on the health front and the juice bar and juice programmes have been a huge part of how The Core has grown.
At The Core we are also committed to teaching groups, schools, organisations, companies, communities and families all about the healing power of fresh juices and raw foods and how you can improve your health with a few simple changes.
The Core started as an idea to bring a health and nutrition focussed venue to Swindon. Not only does The Core make amazing juices, smoothies and healthy food, but it runs workshops to teach people about why juicing is so important. Making juice a part of your lifestyle is such a vital component of supreme health that the goal is to carry on until all of Swindon is healthy! It really is health made simple.
Most of the foods we eat today are (sadly) over-processed and lacking in key vitamins and minerals. When we eat these ‘dead’ foods our bodies have to work hard to replace the missing nutrients. This puts a considerable strain on all the systems of the body, and depletes our stores of energy. The easiest way to remedy this is to eat foods in the form that nature intended! Fresh juices and other raw foods, are literally ‘alive’ with nutrition, and consuming them on a regular basis makes you feel ‘alive’ too!
The Core Family is headed by Kris Talikowski. Kris spent eight years working with Jason Vale, the world’s leading expert in juicing for health. Kris has personally built a huge amount of nutritional knowledge that has become the foundation of The Core's focus on nutrition and health. He speaks publicly and is invited to speak across the country about the benefits of juicing and nutrition.
Kris' journey into juicing, started at University when a poor diet and too much alcohol, junk food and coffee caused two months of illness with gladular fever and the mumps. After reading a book on juicing Kris, over six months, transformed his health and approach to food and nutrition.
Kris then decided to read every book he could on nutrition and became obsessed with the basic concepts of how to achieve better health. While working with Jason Vale he opened seven juice bars around the world and found them to be a great place to spread the news about juicing in a direct face-to-face way.
Then in March 2013, Kris then decided to open The Core, where he lived in Swindon. Since the initial juice bar opened, The Core has evolved to do food, thanks to Chef Jay Halford (see below), juice and raw food programmes and in March 2017 The Core opened it's first retreat in Marbella Spain.
In 2014 The Core found master foodie Jay Halford to help develop and expand the food menu and help with our workshops, events and retreat
Jay is a health focussed chef, having been classically trained in many fine dining restaurants, he then picked up a passion for raw food and making amazingly healthy dishes.
