You can customize your Smoothies and Wraps like myself to suit your diet and save tonnes of calories for the day.

Their Chicken wraps have adequate amounts of Chicken with salad to satisfy your hunger with no guilt trips. They are a perfect combo with their freshly made Smoothies. You can get a Chicken wrap, with a bit of fresh fruit on the side and a Smoothie delivered to you on time for under $1000JMD! Depending on how close you are of course, but definitely value for money.

#tbt to when Suga found a Green Juice she liked!

SIP’n’GO Juice Bar was at The Hub Coworking’s Christmas Pop Up Shop last December and I was encouraged to try their Green Natural Juice even though Green Juices and Smoothies are definitely not something I enjoy. I prefer Protein shakes with a little fat-free dairy and more flavour.

However, I was pleasantly surprised when I tried SIP’n’Go’s Natural Green Juice ($300JMD on that day) called the Refresher with Callaloo, Spinach and Cucumber. It had a tangy kick to it that I could appreciate, which came from the addition of Orange juice and a touch of Ginger.

SIP’n’GO Juice Bar has Smoothies, Shakes and more that I know some of my Suga Bears have been enjoying. So go and check them out. They deliver too!

Juice Nation for Shakes and Smoothies!

Full House Shake

Juice Nation Ja upstairs in Mid Spring Shopping Center is a great spot to grab healthy Shakes and Smoothies on the go.

I have been going on a few Saturday afternoons with no crowd, so received expected quick service. It’s always a good thing to walk into a healthy establishment with visibly fresh fruits and produce as well.

They have a variety of Smoothies and Shakes, Iced Coffees, Extract Juices and more for reasonable prices, mostly in the $400-$600JMD range.

My favourite is the Full House Shake stacked with fruits and protein. You get a choice of about 3 of your favourite fruits. I usually choose blueberries, strawberries and banana. It is then customised with toppings full of fiber such as flaxseed, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and oats.

It is definitely a tasty meal replacement Shake if you would like something healthy, easy to digest and to keep you full until the next meal time.

I also liked the Berri Smoothie with 3 fruits and almond milk.

If the Green Smoothie is your thing, they got it! Mixes of Spinach, Kale, Coconut water and more.

Check them out!

Speaknvegan for Lunch!

Have you tried Speaknvegan for lunch yet? I had the refreshing experience 2 weeks ago. I regret taking so long to do so. Speaknvegan was trademarked and featured on Smile Jamaica TVJ just a few months ago, but has been in operation for about a year. The business may be familiar to some as ‘Salads and Shakes by Stace’, but has evolved greatly. Stacy Doughlasingh, the chef responsible for the tasty, Vegan food offered, graduated from UTECH with a degree in Hotel and Tourism a Management not too long ago. It is always pleasing to see young, talented persons go after their dream and actually enjoying what they do for a living.

I think she is off to a great start with a menu that keeps changing, is so creative and also inviting to the eyes. The day I ordered for pick up, I had difficulty choosing amongst Plantain and Hummus Tacos, Black Bean Fajitas and a Chick’n Chutney Burger. I went with the Black Bean Fajitas that consisted of Black beans sauteed in a chilli sauce, along with avocado, diced tomatoes, vegan cream cheese and parsley. My order was ready on time and it was evident that effort was made for its presentation, a crucial element lacking from a lot of lunch establishments. The ingredients complemented each other well and it was quite tasty. The portion size may be small for some though, perhaps a small soup or shake could be added as a combo.

The instagram account, SPEAKNVEGAN is quite active and gives customers an idea of various selections available for order or special request. There are soup and shake options such as Curried Sweet Potato soup, Thai Coconut Corn soup and Kale and Pumpkin soup. Other interesting options are the spicy medium Ackee Pizza with beet root, okra, tomato and vegetables, the Chilli Sub (a favourite amongst customers) and the Burrito bowl with chopped Veggie Steak just to name a few. Mouth-watering Dessert options are available as well.

So check out Speaknvegan on instagram and order some of those affordable, delightful vegan dishes, whether it’s for lunch, a Wedding, Live event, Family event or just Personal catering. Vegan lunches are available for Pick-up or Delivery on Tuesday to Friday from 10 to 3pm. Orders should be made the day before or by 11am latest by calling 876-378-5094. 

There is a NEW Healthy Food Spot in Town – VIANDAS!

Right : Menu

Just this week, Verginia Mitchell opened her BRAND NEW Restaurant, VIANDAS at Shop #46, Pulse 38A, Trafalgar Road, Kingston 5. The menu is mainly comprised of healthy wraps, salads, shakes and smoothies. 

Understandably, there are a few kinks to iron out since they just opened, for instance, only cash will be accepted for the next 2 weeks and its best to call their cell number. Ambience will also be worked on this weekend and others to come so you do not have to just walk in, but you can sit and enjoy your meal. Calorie counts are expected in the future too, but until then you can trust that Verginia who studied Culinary Nutrition will not be using fatty milk or any milk for that matter in your mashed potatoes, will give you a healthy selection of cheese or portions and will use natural seasonings. Nothing is fried.

I had my Turkey wrap delivered to my office today and it was quite tasty and filling for an affordable price of $550JMD. The presentation was lovely and vibrant. The delivery time was not too delayed either. Quite impressive for an opening week. I am surely looking forward to more weeks to come and will be trying other items on the menu. Word is the Escoveitch wrap is delicious and filling as well.

For now, Viandas is OPEN Mondays to Fridays from 8am to 5pm. Delivery is free with 5 orders and $300JMD if less than 5 orders. Call Viandas at 876-946-2424 or 876-831-3606. Follow Viandas on Instagram @viandasja!
