Raw Food & Vegetarian Restaurants in Bali, Indonesia

Health Shop across from Kafe, Ubud

There are many options to choose from these days now that Bali has been put on the map with Julia Robert’s Eat, Pray, Love. You can experience your love in the rice fields of Ubud…and you can also eat healthy, organic, vegetarian and raw food at the same time!

In Seminyak/Legian area:

When you first arrive in Denpasar, you can have your taxi take you directly to one of these places where you will find healthy options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can also get take-away and eat in the taxi on your continuation up north or beyond…

ZulaBoth Zula and Earth Café in Seminyak, Bali have the same owner and hence have similar items on the menu. Earth Café has more raw food options but Zula also has good salads, juices and smoothies. The main focus of both menus is on vegan, macrobiotic foods. Zula is located on Jalan Dyana Pura Number 5, Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia.

Earth CaféMy personal favorites at this funky macrobiotic vegan restaurant are the Sprouted Wheatberry Salad and the Raw Soup. The salad is a great combo of greens and sprouted wheatberries with a tasty homemade dressing. The raw soup consists of shredded carrots, zucchini and raw veggies in a clear broth made from Bragg’s and water with ice cubes added to make it cold. It may sound strange, but it tastes great and it’s a nice change from the standard blended raw soups. Located on Jalan Oberoi (near the Montesorri School), Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia.

In Ubud:

Once in Ubud, you can start to relax and make your experience whatever you want it to be – peppered with art, culture, dance, yoga, raw food, massage, jewelry, temples, shopping or just relaxing at a café taking it all in around you. You can easily stay for a week and enjoy a different restaurant every day.

Clear Restaurant in Ubud, Bali

Located at the top of Hanoman Street, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.

Sari OrganikTake a walk through the rice fields and you will end up at Sari Organik, a lovely restaurant complete with it’s own organic farm. Surrounded by rice paddies, it’s a picturesque setting and a great place to head after an early morning walk before the sun heats things up. The juices, salads and smoothies here are all delicious and the organic factor really makes a difference. Organic does taste better! Access to rice fields from Jalan Raya, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.

Bali Spirit Festival, Ubud, Indonesia – A Celebration of Yoga, Dance, Raw Foods & Love

A great time was had by all in Ubud this year at the second annual Bali Spirit Festival…I had an Iridology booth at the Dharma Fair this year for the first time, and I was really excited to see people interested in what I do and to feel the response from my Iridology readings. My intentions for coming to the festival were to network and get a feel of the ‘scene’ here in Bali and, all in all, I felt that those goals were met :) I connected with some great people, many of whom are locals and are involved in the raw food, yoga, meditation, detox, cleansing, energy healing spiritual healing world in Bali. I also met some great people who happened to be here on holiday and were able to enjoy the festival as well. I’ve got several clips on youtube from the festival itself…I’ve included them below for your to enjoy!

Friends Monika and Alan at Bali Spirit

Friends Monika and Alan at Bali Spirit

Bali Spirit went for 5 days from the 28 April to 3 May, 2009. I was so fortunate to have Alan as my friend, support and local guide during my time in Ubud, and also Monika who helped to take care of the booth, promote me and also be my videographer – Monika you did the best filming out of everyone so thank you!!

The gathering was all about Yoga, Meditation, Movement, Spirituality and Health.

Next year if I come back, I hope to share the booth space with some other cool folks to have more of a shared experience so I look forward to that! Here are my other interviews and video clips from the festival:

My booth at the Bali Spirt Festival featuring Iridology Readings and Crystal Healing. I also did a lot of Crystal Readings as well – this is really a unique type of energy reading that I really love to do – be sure to try it if you see me in Ubud at Bali Spirit again! We also sold lots of 100% cotton sprout bags and crystal mineral spray deodorant – both top selling items at the event!

Here I am talking about local foods that were available to eat at the festival so you can see for yourself the abundance of raw food love and organic, healthy Balinese fruits and vegetables.

I think here I am dabbling in the free sample spirit of the festival…hehe and showing you the fresh local cacao grown in Bali as well as other organic foods for sale.

Did I find more cacao? :) Well I know how to enjoy a festival, that’s for sure! This was a great booth, full of locally grown raw cashews from Bali as well as cacao cashews snacks and a great Balinese sea salt for sale. Free samples? Yes! Lots! Come to the festival and see for yourself!

Just in case you were wondering what the actual yoga events look like at Bali Spirit, I take you inside the gates so you can check out the vibe and hear some of the live music, perhaps getting a feel of the celebration for yourself!

There is my awesome friend Alan in the background, a true free spirit and artist at heart – a great video just to see the Dharma Fair itself where the vendors are set up to sell their crystals, raw foods, jewelry, incense, clothes and of course food from the raw food restaurant Little K KAFE in Ubud and well as other local restaurants. Yum!

If you want more information on the Bali Spirit Festival check out their website at www.balispiritfestival.com.

In between working 9-10 hours every day at the festival, I somehow managed to see a bit of Ubud thanks to Alan…we spent one morning in the local market where Alan worked on some drawings and I just sat and enjoyed the commotion, watching all the locals come and go, buying veggies, drinking coffees and selling flowers. We also had some time to shop for Buddhas which was the only thing I wanted in Bali, so I took home 3 to add to my collection for the ‘meditation room’ in my future healing center – hehehe…

In the midst of all that, we also had some fun time catching up and drinking gin and tonics…oops! but ok, I am on holiday here :) and we even managed a visit at his friend’s amazing house, which is available for rent if anyone is interested and house $900 USD/night to spend (don’t all jump up at once!)…it’s amazing, check it out at Villa Pantulan.

One day during the festival, I was jetted off to the Green School outside of Ubud, where I met the staff and gave them a green smoothie demonstration class! It was so much fun watching all the adults getting into the power of the greens. Ronald Stones, the director, told me that they plan to add Green Smoothies to their school canteen menu, and I really hope they do! If we can teach the younger generations about the importance of greens in their diet, then perhaps we can start to change the pattern of destruction in health, diet and lifestyle today. GO GREENS!!! And thank you BALI :)

Whole Body Health – The Importance of a Good Diet

Whole Body Health

Let’s keep things simple and real here folks, it’s not that hard really, just do the best you can with what you have, always try to make the best choice for your body, and think about what your body needs, not what you think you want in terms of making sound food choices.

Natural, Whole & Pure is the way to Healthy Bliss

Natural, Whole & Pure is the way to Healthy Bliss

It may seem like you are missing out initially, but when you feel more vibrant, healthy and in balance as each year goes by, you will realize how this ‘investment’ in your health is the best commitment you can make for yourself. Ask anyone who is already sick or dis-eased if the cigarettes, junk food and alcohol were worth it and just imagine for yourself what they would say.

Natural, whole and pure. Getting back to nature is the only way to get the body back into balance.

There should be some amazing raw foods there made by the Little K KAFE in Ubud – yum! Sounds like fun :) :) Hope to see you there!!

After that I * * * may * * * be heading to Perth, Australia for just a quick visit to see Fred Bisci on his 2009 Australia Tour. If you are in Australia already and are looking for raw food inspiration, check his dates for Perth, Gold Coast and Sydney in May 2009. But if there are any raw food lovers in Perth who would like to invite me into their homes for a few short days during the workshops, please contact me – I can trade Iridology consults for lodging :) The seminars are in Guilford wherever that is :)))
