LIIFE EAT SMART {food focused on fitness, health and the environment}

IMG_3758

So I’m officially (very naturally) attracted to good food and healthy things. Why? Well – by chance I happened to stumble on a place basically created for people like me and you. Intrigued by their windows decorated with running shoes, fruits and vegetables and a sign that advertised detox juices, açaí bowls and fitness friendly lunch formulas, I decided to check it out.

Liife Eat Smart’s concept is based on three principles – fitness, health and the environment. This is made extremely clear by their menu that is catered to nutritionally rich ingredients that improve fitness performance and all around well-being. The menu changes seasonally with a host of salad creative salad options with protein rich toppings, warm dishes and vitamin rich desserts. Yesterday, I enjoyed their Quinoline salad – a delicious mixture of quinoa, estragon seasoned pink lentils, rich hummus and a light shallot sauce. I added a lemon ginger infused chicken protein topping to my salad, and was very content and ready to go for my yoga class later that day. Also – their juices are not to be missed. I tasted the « Orange is the new black » aka ginger, curcuma and carrot. Check out their menu below to get a better idea of how things at Liife work.

Liife likewise sponsors many events around the city that you will find on my Facebook page and their site. They even have a stand at the Midtown Sports Club in the first. Liife is the first healthy restaurant created for athletes in Paris and they have most certainly succeeded in everything that they are doing. Keep checking back on my Insta too to discover other things I’m eating there, cause I’ll be back (and their food is really Instagram-able see below). Liife is located between Grands Boulevards and Montorgueil at the metro Sentier – 33 Rue des Petits Carreaux.

True love found at Love Juice Bar {the tiniest cutest most yummy place in paris for a big bowl of deliciousness, and of course you can find your avo toast too}

07.01.2018

Welcome to Love Juice Bar. Here in Paris we are used to tiny little spaces, but this one is especially petite. That being said, there ain’t no lack of love. Located on Rue Chapon in the third, this spot is truly sublime. I had only tried once prior, but knew I needed to go back for more.

This time I checked out the PB bowl. The bowl base is organic bananas, mixed with super creamy raw peanut butter. On top I enjoyed coconut, dark chocolate, a very special kind of granola and of course a bit of banana. Let me tell you, this thing tastes like gold (and tasted even better with my golden latte). As seen on their menu, they have 7 bowl options, one of course being a classic acai. You can count on seeing me there again to test another one of these beauties. I was lucky enough to dine with one of my dear friends who went with their avo toast. I can assure you that this meal took her to another place, it was that good. On gluten free bread, with a bit of olive oil and chili powder, disappointment is simply not an option. I know myself as I went for the avo toast my last time at Love. Kindly note all ingredients are organic (always a plus). Please go and get your own little piece of love – 26 Rue de Chapon 75003 Paris. They also have a pretty sweet Insta – @lovejuicebar. P.s. Thanks for the Insta love below you guys. Love Bar Rocks!
