Throwback Thursday to a Quick Pick Me Up at Calabash Itals Rastarant !

Suga with KD from Calabash Itals Rastarant in Ocho Rios on Friday, December 4, 2020

Cutting it close to curfew a few weeks ago in Ocho Rios, on Friday, December 4, 2020, Calabash Itals Rastarant came to the rescue with not only fast, but healthy Vegetarian food.

They gave us eco-friendly takeaway boxes filled to capacity that we could not even finish.

We had their Curried Chunks and Bean Stew. Flavourful and Delicious. Truly ital food that hit the spot.

Detox Before the Weekend with Chef Lumley’s Green Juice! It’s a whole MOOD!

Whether or not you like Green Juices, this is the one for you! Even though I eat and drink Healthy, I’m not a Green Juice fan. It’s usually lacking in taste or far too tangy. Chef Brian Lumley found the perfect balance between both, using a bit of citrus and pine.

The citrus and pine can be omitted for persons with allergies or for persons on a detox that wish to eliminate sugar entirely. No artificial sugars are used and notice would have to be given from early to have the juice without that tang.

It’s best chilled and smells so good from you pour it! It’s not entirely smooth, but that’s because it has the good stuff! Fibre! Fibre is especially important for those on a cleanse or for persons like myself who need a renewed energy.

I had Chef Lumley’s Green Juice a few weeks ago in between training clients instead of my usual healthy snack. It was a great supplement, with probably even less carbs and calories.

For the ladies, it is especially good to keep your iron count in check or bring it to what it needs to be.

If you weren’t distracted by Chef Lumley’s whole MOOD, you can see he offers a variety of sizes to suit your needs:
8oz – $500
16oz – $1500
1L – $2500
1.5L – $3500

It’s best if you just go Large, because you will want more. Chef Lumley’s Green Juice is #SugaEndorsed (The good ‘Suga’! πŸ˜‰)

Suga Tasters, Ash and Ten’s Breakdown!

Chef Bingy definitely met and even exceeded our expectations, particularly with the explosion of different flavours in relatively simple dishes. We first experienced this with Chef Bingy’s Pumpkin Chicken Soup, which Jamaicans expect in a Pumpkin soup, but with welcomed notes of coconut milk and ginger. Chef Bingy definitely defied the ‘usual’ by also adding nuts such as Almonds to her marvellous Soup.

We had ordered a Salad as well, which was deliciously enhanced by a crunchy texture from added Walnuts and Pears to the Kale. Sweet and earthy were definitely the predominant flavours!

Chef Bingy’s Salad

After our very satisfying Soup and Salad experience, we recently tried Chef Bingy’s Curried Chicken, which was extremely rich and flavourful. This, served with roast and fried Breadfruit, definitely hit the spot and was reminiscent of my beloved Nanny’s cooking in a ‘dutchie’ on the cold stove. For $800JMD, along with generous slices of Avocado and Plantains, this meal was well worth it!

The personal delivery from Chef Bingy herself was also a nice touch, but if she continues cooking this way, she may be confined to the Kitchen whipping out more and more delicious soul food!
