• RAW Breakfasts in Brighton!

    Ipods. Harem pants. The Soprano’s. These are among the many things I have got excited about way after everybody else has. I just always seem to be a bit behind when it comes to certain things like technology, fashion and American television dramas. Now I am experiencing a similar thing with my new home, BRIGHTON. When I first landed upon its pebbly beach five months ago with nothing but a rucksack, pull along suitcase, blender, and yoga mat; I have to admit I was struggling to see what all the fuss was about. I mean, it had a pebbly beach for a start. Yes it was cool and yes, I did like it; but the best thing about the place for me was the fact that it had a raw restaurant and an amazing whole foods store (which incidentally was enough to keep me here). But without the sunshine to shine a torch on all that Brighton had to offer, I couldn’t hand on my heart say that this was an incredible place to be. Like most British seaside resorts, when the weather is grey and gloomy, Brighton became much of the same. The thing is I knew I had come here for a reason, and after flitting back to Yorkshire, crashing out in London and deciding not to up root and move to Bali, I decided to trust my gut feeling that was telling me to to stay here and start a new life on the south coast. But where was the bloody sunshine??!! Honestly, the last thing you want after turning down the chance to move to BALI is an upturned umbrella and gale force winds on your face. This was definitely a time to cultivate patience. So when the sun finally did come out to play, was it worth the wait? Was it ever!!! Brighton in the sunshine is AMAZING!!!! I LOVE IT. And now I have seen both sides of Brighton, the perceived good and bad, I can whole heartedly say this is one of the BEST places to live (and if you ignore the Tesco Express’s and the Sainsbury’s Local’s, you really don’t feel as if you’re in England, which is often a good thing). You’ve got everything here: the ocean, the beach (albeit a pebbly one), the south downs (not as glorious as my beloved dales, but still very beautiful), parks, clubs, cool-little-healthy-cafés, yoga, RAW restaurants, amazing produce, and a pulsating unique vibe that makes Brighton so special. So! Since the sun has been shining extremely bright, I have been sat outside most mornings enjoying some of the best raw breakfasts ever. You don’t get much of a better start to the day than this! Here are some of my favourites:
