There are many ways to lead a sustainable life. One that could potentially impact our planet more than others is the eating habits we have; eating organic food is an important cycle that can reduce the use of plastic, and decrease the amount of animal waste and animal abuse. In a world full of artificial tastes, unhealthy restaurants, and harmful food habits, our health is in peril, and as such it is vital to treat our bodies well and to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the animals we have been intrusted to protect.
An important way we can work together as a school community and wider society to reduce animal waste and abuse, by eating bio organic vegetarian food at home and when going out eating to restaurants. Finding vegetarian and vegan, organic food in Bucharest can be challenging, but there are some great choices available.
FruFru is a restaurant that has products displayed on shelves in supermarkets. Their products have an expiration date of two days, because they are super fresh, their product ingredients are honest and clean. Their products are directly from the source, so they can control the quality, with vegan and vegetarian options always on offer, and they reuse all their products, all packaging is recycled or recyclable, so there’s little waste.
Bistro Raw & Vegan is a restaurant and market that is working on creating healthy, delicious food that can excite people, whilst working with beneficial and invigorating ingredients to satisfy the body. They wish to show that health is not a series of restrictions, a diet, or a detox program, but a tasty balance. It’s simple: you eat healthy, you feel good, the energy you receive helps you continue your daily plans with gusto. This is what these restaurants want to give to you.
Sublimme is a vegan coffee shop and restaurant, serving desserts only with vegetal ingredients, not thermally processed, which means they keep their nutrients fully intact. Their products do not contain refined sugar, but are sweetened with organic agave syrup and dates, without containing flour, milk, eggs, or gluten. The nuts and seeds that they make are also rich in fibre, protein, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. For all those who want a healthy sweet, for diabetics, for children, for those who have allergies and intolerances to gluten and lactose, for pregnant or breastfeeding women, for those on a keto diet, so…for everyone who loves sweets, this is a great option.
Sara Green, the first Fast-Food vegan in Romania, was born out of love, for children, for humans, and for nature. They want to offer gluten-free, vegan, burgers, wraps, salads, and sweets. In the centre of Bucharest you’re able to eat the most delicious foods, enjoying the rapid service as well as the wonderful flavours.
Eating healthy, reducing animal cruelty, recyclable food will create a better lifestyle for you and the rest of the world, so I hope you will consider starting now and support this great local restaurants to ensure they thrive and that more options open up.
