Wherever I am in the world I always route out the juice bars, yoga studios and health shops; so I am in my heaven in Florida!
I haven’t ventured too far, reaching as far as Key West and residing mostly in Fort Lauderdale, but I have also touched on Miami and most recently Palm Beach. This isn’t to say that I haven’t tried a fair few of the juice bars, fitness studios and health restaurants while also finding myself falling for Florida more and more.
I have been in lots of luck when I have visited, always being attentively looked after by one lovely human being or another, whom I have met through my time on Below Deck, Bravo’s Reality TV show about yachting life.
Yoga is my release & relaxation for my mind, as well as my body. I feel vibrantly renewed after each class and I have found a new love for hot yoga while out in Florida. I have travelled to many parts of the world, and even though London isquite ahead with its ‘clean eating’ culture, Florida’s availability and alternative “anti-stereotypical” healthy environment is fabulous!
My favourite foodie spots?
One of Fort Lauderdale’s first cold=pressed juicery and delicious wholesome healthy kithcen, I loved the banana, almond butter and chia seed toast (we all need a little indulgence!)
Spa Juice Bar spajuicebar.com
I haven’t yet decided whether it’s the crystal water they serve, the selection of Acai bowls or the best hummus you may have every tasted?
Fresh First www.freshfirst.com
Gluten Free and vegan option juice bar and kitchen, and the first one I visited in Fort Lauderdale with two beautiful girlfriends, so it will always have a little section of my heart.
Sugar Apple Cafe & Market www.sugarapplekeywest.com
I had an afternoon exploring on my own in Key West, so what did I do? Explore, walk, gallery hop and rummage out a fantastic health shop and cafe :). Just what the doctor ordered & so delicious.
