New Year's Giving Back hoboken new jersey

Giving Back

January 24th, 2019 by

We’re almost into February of 2019, and although all of our New Years goals are still fully intact, I personally am a firm believer in always setting new goals for ourselves. To push that further, I believe we need to always be setting new goals for ourselves in order to be giving ourselves a new way to grow. Goals are OF COURSE important, but there’s really nothing quite like GROWTH. Don’t be alarmed- growth comes from many different places. It can surely come from learning new hobbies, setting new lifestyle goals, taking… View Article

Whether it’s getting gifts for everyone you care about, rushing to meet a quota at work before the years end, or you are scrambling to get all of your school work done before winter break, there truly is nothing at ease about this month besides the joyous gift that comes from being able to spend the holidays with people whom we care about, and they us. I for whatever reason, usually find myself under a little bit of… View Article

What Are The Health Benefits of Acai?

November 14th, 2018 by

Not just another Acai Shop… we promise. OKAY, so I figured its time that we should all address the big elephant in the room. WHY are there so many acai shops popping up everywhere? WHY should I care? HOW can I choose a good versus bad acai shop? And when will it stop… hopefully never in our opinion. With all of that off the table, we’ll begin by addressing: what actually is acai anyways? Acai isn’t just some fad that came up out of anywhere, and anyone with a passion for healthy… View Article

3 Ways to Welcome The Fall

September 27th, 2018 by

Hello Fall! How in the heck did we get here? While I’m sad that summer has come to a close, during the month of September I always find myself somewhere stuck in between living in a permanent summer state of a mind and on the other hand day-dreaming about drinking a cold hard cider at Penning’s Orchard after a long day apple picking and everything else FUN that Warwick, NY has to offer. Anyways while we close up the sunshine season and open our doors to the crisp air of a New… View Article

June 1st, 2018 by

Hey guys! Happy…June. Wow.

3 Steps to Sustaining Weight Loss

March 29th, 2018 by

I think it was around the end of February maybe even the first day of this month (March) when I came into the restaurant and two of my wonderful sweet employees were discussing meal prepping and how they not necessarily wanted to lose weight, but they wanted to be healthy. For one, that made me so super happy because how awesome it is to acknowledge the difference. For two, how flattered I was that they looked to me for advice in some way. I told them I could help them, but that… View Article

1. Wake Up Early & Plan Your Day 01. Time management is one of the hardest things in life to master. Many people wander through life blindly, everyday praying they make their train, praying they have time to make it to the gym, and hoping they aren’t late for work or their boss will kill them.

Hey guys! So it’s 2017, and with the start of the new year we’ve had our customers come in with all different types of dietary restrictions from completely gluten free just because, to the Whole 30 Fad, and we can only offer a little bit of advice here at Shaka.

PITAYA & the New Year

March 21st, 2018 by

It’s a new year and the number one question every person asks himself or herself is, “What goal am I going to set for myself in the year to come?” better yet, they ask, “What goal am I actually going to stick with?” The truth is the goals we set for ourselves are the only ones we are actually capable of fulfilling. They usually fall under the same category of focusing on ones self–whether it is to focus more on themselves overall, to work harder in their place of work, to lose… View Article
