A plant-based diet is definitely something I have been more aware of – especially since watching the Netflix movie, The Game Changers. It shows the importance of loving your body, & only feeding it the very best that it deserves. Husband & I have been more conscious of what we have been eating, & our favourite place to go for a date is The Jozi Girl Eatery at Broadacres Centre.
Other than the absolutely delicious food (I am busy working my way through the menu & trying something new every time), the whole vibe is just so relaxed & stunning. Plus they are pet-friendly, with water bowls & treats at the ready. Could you ask for much more?

Anything else you want to add: There is something on the menu for everyone! Even fur babies are welcome, we have water bowls and treats available
I absolutely love visiting this restaurant, & make every excuse to go there again – meetings, visits, or spoils with friends. Just note they aren’t open on Mondays & don’t have a liquor license. However, if you are choosing a healthier lifestyle then this makes perfect sense!
Yesterday I tried their new Vegan Frappuccino in Chai Spice, as well as their Bean & Quinoa Salad. Their meals are huge so make sure you go there hungry, as when you lay your eyes on the delicious treats you will need to sample those too (the chocolate-filled doughnuts are out of this world).
Thank you Lorna for encouraging us all to live a better life & for providing the most delicious, healthy meals ever.
