On my first trip to Bali I was honoured enough to interview the knowledgeable and
food leader Ben Richards.
Byron Bay Ex pat living in Bali for many years, Ben has been a big part of the raw food movement.
His philosophies around health, mindful eating and eating plants are sensational.
He has a cafe The Seeds of Life, is in town, well scoped out by back packers and vegetarians alike, as the mecca of raw and vegan.
He recently introduced the tonic bar and I find this natural medicine at its best. Even as a trained herbalist I am blown away at the variety of drinks on offer.
I love the menu and the food selection and every time (which is quite a few times now) I am stunned at the calibre and colour of the food. Amazing.
He holds raw retreats and you can find his cafe The Seeds of Life here.
This is called the Sol Jar and the banana praline stick is to die for!!!
