Introducing Farmer’s Friday

  To keep things fresh, I am starting a new series on the blog called “Farmer Friday’s.”  My goal is to spotlight local farmers in Cayman as well as discuss the benefits of supporting local and sustainability every Friday.   Why is supporting local farmers important?   1.  Practicing sustainability is beneficial for the environment. 2.  Helps our local economy.   I have always been baffled by the amount of produce our small island imports when we have the ability to grow a variety of fruits and vegetables.  Our island is blessed with pretty good weather all year long, which allows us to be in position where we can grow our own produce.  I often wonder could we reduce the amount of food waste if we were more supportive of our local farmers?  Picture the overwhelming amount of food every supermarket on the island imports of fruits and vegetables alone.  There is no way all of that is consumed, I’m confident a large portion is wasted on account of not being bought.  Don’t get me …

Juice Bars + Summer Days

  Drinking all natural & 100% organic juices and smoothies that are full of flavor and jam-packed with healthy benefits is very in vogue right now- just as it should be.  Cayman is very blessed to have the one and only lovely Jessie’s Juice Bar located at Camana Bay.  The juice bar is stocked with vibrant fresh fruit and veggie juices, along with tasty savory eats and yummy treats.  It is the perfect place to stop by for a healthy lunch or smoothie while on the go. The decor is just fabulous! As it is very eco chic and environment friendly.  You will instantly fall in love with this place.  It is such a treat to find a place that repurposes items, and incorporates being environmentally responsible into their decor.  Overall, Jessie’s Juice Bar really sets the bar.  Simply put it is a wonderful local hot spot. Perhaps the essence of Jessie’s Juice bar is that it is a family run business which truly cares about offering fresh and healthy food and drink options.  Items …
