On my last trip to Costa Rica I had the opportunity to collaborate with Olam Pure Food at the Nautilus Boutique Hotel in Santa Teresa. This cafe featured all organic, vegetarian & vegan recipes. During my stay I had the opportunity to eat my way through a good portion of their menu.

Some of my favourite dishes included their vegan omelette, vegan shakshuka, and antipasti pasta. I was also delighted by their array of smoothies and fresh juices. You could even great your own smoothie combination!

I was also given the opportunity to get in the kitchen and make some of the dishes myself. Which was really great considering I already missed my kitchen even after just a few days of traveling. It was also so great to find organic healthy vegan food abroad! Sometimes between long travel days and stays in hotels, it can be difficult to come across wholesome food.

I can’t wait to share some of my own recipes I’m working on (coming soon) that were inspired by those I tried at Olam Pure foods.

I’ve included some of the amazing dishes I had the pleasure of helping to cook and photograph below!
