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!

Weekend in DC

Weekend in DC

If you follow along on my Instagram or read my last post you would know that I’ve been in DC for the past weekend! 

Of course we visited some memorials and indulged in delicious foods such as these amazing homemade pop tarts from ‘Teds  Bulletin.’ I do not think I have ever tasted a pop tart so delicious! If you’re ever in the capital hill area you must stop by, if even just for the pop tarts! 

 Besides the delicious bakery section, their main course foods were just as good; as I feasted on this HUGE breakfast burrito! 

 I would have to say the Capital Hill area was by far one of my favorite places we visited. The area had so many little boutiques, bakeries and restaurants, as well as this pretty mural that we stopped to take a photo by.  Another one of my favorite places in this area was Georgetown. The University was absolutely breathtaking and looked like something out of A fairytale.

   Even the homes in Georgetown were pretty and colorful.  Just walking down the streets and looking at the homes was entertaining. 

 After Georgetown we had even more delicious food. One thing I had to have while here was sushi so we visited ‘The Sushi Bar,’ near Alexandria. And it was so good!  
 And of course knowing me, I had my fair share of icecream and when I spotted a Ben and Jerrys down King Street I indulged.  

 Besides all of the good food, we wandered through DC and stopped at some breathtaking monuments such as the Lincoln Memorial.  

  DC is definitely a place of history and everyone should take time to visit. It’s a gorgeous town and well worth it. 🙂 

Stay tuned for more this week.
