Best healthy address of Milan is HANDS down, Mantra Raw Vegan. This awesome spot is ideal for any and everyone interested in healthy and delicious juices, meals and desserts. I must admit, I have yet to find a spot that compares in Paris. Mantra Raw combines a market, where snacks, seeds, superfoods, cold pressed juices, teas and sweets are available for purchase as well as a fully functioning restaurant that is open for lunch and dinner. I had the pleasure of stopping by for a bite and a juice while in Milan.

Owner and founder Marina insisted on preparing me their house signature and best seller – TOSTAVO. This delectable is a composition of raw bread, dehydrated for 18 hours, with mashed avocado, cold smoked cherry tomatoes, marinated fennel and edible flowers. It was not only beautiful but supper yummy. Likewise, I tasted and very much enjoyed a coconut tiRAWmisu (ha ha – it’s true though) that Is caffeine free! Perfect for those looking for cut back on their caffeine or that are very sensitive to caffeine in the evening hours (like me). And finally, to drink, the Mantra cold pressed AUMARANCIONE. A juice consisting of carrots, oranges and lemon. Oh la la, incredibly fresh and wonderful.

I truly do not have enough positive things to say about this wonderful place. It has everything you could ever want or need to feel good and eat right. Its pretty much worth a trip to Milan just to try this raw utopia. Please follow them on Instagram for some serious food porn @mantraw and check out their site for more information.

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!
