Which kind of apple juice did you last drink? Er, what do you mean, which kind? It was apple juice. Hmm, just as we thought… Have you ever noticed that although there is a vast variety of apples (supermarkets might have you believe differently) there’s usually just that one kind of apple juice? Three friends from up north have teamed up to change that. They started the project „leev“ (Plattdeutsch for love) and are bottling up different types of apples: Elstar, Boskoop and Holsteiner Cox. leev lovingly presses each apple variety separately, allowing very different and characteristic flavours to emerge. The result is unique and full-bodied natural juice that really tastes like the apples it’s made from. Unlike processed juices, these varieties are all naturally hand crafted – no preservatives, artificial colourings or added sugars. Depending on the time of harvest, they’ll taste slightly different but they’ll always be delicious – whether just plain, as an apple spritzer or even mixed in a cocktail with vodka. Although these fine juices are almost too precious to not play the lead. Currently, the distribution of the juices in the Hamburg city-area is being taken care of personally by the leev-crew. For inhabitants of all other areas, please to order. Oh, one more thing: without bees there would be no apples. And to help save the bees, 2 cents of every sold bottle of leev apple juice go to regional initiatives promoting the health of honey bees such as „beesharing e.V“, which is creating a network for beekeepers, farmers and bee friends. So each sip of leev apple juice will keep those little bees going strong. YAY! Enjoy the good stuff!

Prêt á manger.

Everybody is talking about vegan cuisine. And so they should. Overeating on cheap meat makes you fat, slow, ill, kills living creatures and destroys the climate. Vegetables are healthy and good and yummy. So far so good – but that’s not the whole story. Anyone who has ever seen the vast and sheer endless horizon of greenhouse colonies and vegetable farms in Almeria, Spain, get’s an idea of how little the reality of our food industry has to do with the romantic illusion of advertisement. There is no question that our approach on food has got lost somewhere in society’s quest for more convenience, more speed and more profit. Yes, it’s a fact that not everything veggie is good, not everything labelled organic makes it a good thing per se. But how do we eat right? How do we eat naturally without being held in dogmatic shackles? Yesterday, May 5th, THE BOWL – Berlin’s first Clean Eating Restaurant ­­– opened on Warschauer Straße in Friedrichshain, serving 100% natural food in bowls. The food concept goes far beyond a merely vegan diet. Raw and cooked food is prepared and served in a creative way, without any trans fats, white sugars or artificial additives. Instead all dishes are plant based, vegan, organic and natural, gluten free and made with essential ingredients such as coconut or palm oil. Each Bowl reflects the play of textures and unusual combinations, but above all, it displays the love of pure and wholesome food. Only fresh and untreated vegetables and fruit – as they were created naturally – are processed in THE BOWL’S kitchen. High Vibe Lifestyle is the flavour. It’s about making conscious decisions in every aspect of our daily lives, boosting our personal energy level, increasing strength, balance and wellbeing. Easily done, healthy and full of power. Nature is our guru. THE BOWL is located on the 1st floor above Veganz and Goodies on Warschauer Straße – and that’s no coincidence: The creators of The Bowl are the guys behind Goodies (who are now managing up to 10 outlets throughout Germany) and have taken things a step further by opening this restaurant. Just goes to show what healthy food can do for you. We’re hungry and on our way!
