A Foodies Paradise

Living in Miami, Florida, I am constantly surrounded by amazing food. So I thought it would only be fair to share the amazing foods I find.

I decided to start out this new foodie series with a few places that will be first on my list to try. You’ll probably notice most of the restaurants I’ll be testing out are relatively healthy, because I try to maintain a mostly plant based diet, besides the occasional treat here and there.

Plant Theory
744 6th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139

A botanical, vegan cafe with an amazing raw food selection!

Jugo Fresh
1935 West Ave #102, Miami Beach, FL 33139

I’d imagine you could get almost any sort of detox juice and smoothie you could imagine. But I am particularly dying to try one of their bowls.

Jucy Lu
2621 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127

Another eatery for the health conscious eater. Particularly looking forward to their Let-Us-Wrap and veggie soup.

Maoz Vegetarian
1657 Washington Ave Miami Beach, FL 33139

If only to try their falafel! This “chipotle styled” restaurant is definitely bringing back some memories from one of my favorite falafel places, Hubbly Bubbly,in my other home town, Winter Park.

Sugar Factory
Hotel Victor, 1144 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33139

So this place will definitely have to be saved for a time when I am really feeling like splurging. All of this healthy food will be out the window after I indulge in one of Sugar Factory’s gorgeous milkshakes!

Sweet Potato Coconut Curry Stew

I’ve been really into soups the past few months and decided to make my own at home! 

I went to my local farmers market and picked up some fresh veggies. From there I threw everything together in the crock pot (besides water and coconut milk) and sautéed it in grapeseed oil until it browned.    Next, I added in the water and coconut milk and let the soup cook on medium heat in the crock pot for about 4 hours.   Finally I toasted some fresh homemade bread that I picked up from the farmers market and made some white rice to make the perfect meal! Ingredients:

1 sweet potato 

1/2 cabbage

2 whole carrots

Himalayan salt

1 1/2 purple onion

Curry powder

1/4 garlic

Coconut milk

Water
