Terra Restaurante Natural – Lisbon

When we were in Lisbon in 2015 we had dinner at Terra Restaurante Natural for the first time and we were pleasantly surprised.

Terra (meaning Earth in Portuguese) is a vegetarian (and mostly vegan) restaurant, considered…

SunCafe On New Year’s Eve

SunCafe On New Year's Eve

Although I’ve lived in Los Angeles for over two years, SunCafe is a recent discovery for me. The first time I visited the restaurant was to meet a friend for a quick lunch, so I was expecting a small vegan fast food joint. Upon arrival, however, I realized that I had been way off the mark. From the decor to the service to the food…the entire experience was first rate!  …

Looking Behind The Label

Overstimulated. Thats how I felt when I returned to Europe after 8 years working and living in Latin America. It became apparent to me that the media have to SHOUT to get our attention; overpopulation, sustainability of food production, loss of natural resources, animal welfare, human health, and so on.

Organic Pineapple Express

easy pineapple smoothie

Pineapples are full of Vitamin C and manganese, which are good for your bones, among other nutrients! Delicious clean eating! I’m not a big fan of blended or juiced fruit. I give different guidance on this depending on the person and their blood sugar issues. However, if you’re drinking soda, beer, or eating refined sugar, then this is probably a fantastic upgrade!     ORGANIC PINEAPPLE EXPRESS Ingredients: 1 sweet organic pineapple* 12 filtered…
