There is nothing better than a delicious meal in Italy. I mean come on, if you go to the right place, the ingredients are so fresh, everything is homemade and all is just perfect. But finding these places is the difficultly. It is so much easier to stumble upon a tourist trap with mediocre pasta than to find a real gem, like Taglio. Especially in an industrial city like Milan.

This fabulous cafe, restaurant, bar and gourmet is located by the Canal and offers fabulous service from morning to night. When last in Milan I stopped by for an aperitivo and was taken aback by the quality of ingredients, delicious bites and incredible wine. You can stop by Taglio at any moment of the day, be it for a coffee in the morning, to buy fresh homemade pasta at their grocery at any time of the day, during the day for lunch or in the evening for an aperitf or for dinner. It will all be excellent. I can’t wait to go back to Italy for another round. They use either the highest quality ingredients or ones that are homemade! Taglio – VIA VIGEVANO, 10 20144 MILANO.

Life Juice France {the most accessible, all natural and simply delicious pomegranate juice}

So the general consensus here in Paris is that fresh, good natural and healthy juices are hard to find. We need to go far away to special places to find these kind of products. While yes, there are special boutiques catered to juice in Paris, I promise one of the best is not far from your door step – it’s called Life Juice. This 100% pure pomegranate juice, without any added sugar is created using pomegranates carefully selected from small farms, picked at maturity and pressed without the bark to minimize the astringency to achieve a taste intense yet refined.

Life Juice can be found at nearly all Parisian super markets (Monoprix, Franprix, Carrefour, Carrefour City, etc.), making it extremely accessible. The small format is practical (only 120 ml) and the contents within the bottle are so incredibly beneficial to the body. Not only is this berry loaded with Fiber, Protein, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Folate and Potassium but also contains two plant compounds with extremely powerful medicinal properties. One of these compounds, Punicalagins has been found to have three times the antioxidant activity of red wine and green tea. Pomegranates even have anti-inflammatory effects, help fight cancer and help to lower blood pressure and fight arthritis and joint pain. The list goes on and on. This stuff is really magical and Life Juice makes it accessible and easily consumable. Plus – it tastes really good. Check out their site for more information, and stay tuned as you will see more and more about this fabulous product on my social media.
