Best Life Nutrition is a healthy smoothie and acai bowl store, run by Sarah and Corey Pilger. They are well known for their ability to make crazy flavors like cupcakes healthy to drink.
Best Life Nutrition is located on 4158 N Goldwater Blvd in Scottsdale. The owners Sarah and Corey have been running this location for two years now. The small town business environment was exactly what they were looking for. Sarah said the main goal of Best Life Nutrition “was to bring nutrition and good education to communities and letting people know we are here to support them.”
A typical day starts at 7:30 in the morning. The couple will come in and prepare the fruits for the day. They stay busy from 8:00 A.M to 12:00 P.M and are constantly on the move serving customers. The couple runs everything themselves from making smoothies, to running the register to washing dishes. They end the day by cleaning and prepping for the next morning.
One reason people are so drawn to the store is their crazy smoothie flavors. “We want to introduce something that may be trendy but not generally healthy, to people in a healthy way,” said Sarah. Some of their flavors are Oreo cheesecake, cup-cake, pumpkin spice, blueberry lemon and so many more. One customer Cidney Wash said, “my favorite thing to order is their strawberry cheesecake smoothie.”
Aside from just making delicious smoothies all day, the couple also offers individualized fitness counseling for customers to sign up for. “The at-home side of things is actually the biggest part of our business and more of what we do,” said Sarah.
Corey lost 150 pounds about 11 years ago with a company called Good Nutrition. A few years later he was coaching his future wife Sarah, who lost 45 pounds. “Having a one on one coach to tell me hey follow this plan was a huge game-changer,” said Sarah.
One customer Cidney Wash said, “I love that I can have yummy tasting food that’s healthy for me and I also love the personal relationships they build with their customers.”
Sarah said, “it’s really exciting to be able to help college students learn about what nutrition is.” Students drive a lot of their business, but unfortunately this is the only location the couple wants to maintain.
The couple has noticed large growth this year and is hoping to educate even more people on nutrition. If you’re ever looking for a yummy, but healthy meal Best Life Nutrition is here.
