Life in modern day Rome can be stressful and tiring. The city can drain our energy when we are in traffic, on public transport, waiting for guided visits, or just plain trying to understand what people are saying. It is times like these, we need a place that can bring our energy back: that is Zazie.
Upon entrance you see a rainbow of fruit and vegetables. The place offers tailor made fruit or vegetable juices, smoothies, green salads, yoghurts, soups and more. It is living food filled with vitamins and minerals made to suit you. Here is a place where you are doing right by your body and mind to stay balanced.
The vegetarian and vegan menu is updated daily with seasonal, locally produced and sourced fruits and vegetables that are free from chemicals and preservatives. Everything inside is biodegradable. The vibe is natural eating and living: you can feel better just being there.
The owners promote a relaxed, easy-going and mindful eating culture that allows you to be your best self. The best part is that you can eat and drink to suit your own individual health. Personalise your plate with the nutrients your body needs: you can freely add chia, sunflower, pumpkin seeds, dried fruit, nuts, natural vegetarian sauces and more.
I had a vitamin filled vegetable juice with purple cabbage, a salad with green vegetables in which I added my own favourite superfood (chia seeds) and a Vegan Mousse with a delicious mix of raspberries, cinnamon, banana, pineapple, apple, blueberries and ginger… Yum! I also added my own crushed almonds and cranberries, which were amongst a mix of self-serve ‘add your own’ nuts, dried fruits and cereals. It is all naturally low in sugar, far from modern day overly processed chemical-filled foods.
I knew I was treating myself right.
The menu changes each day to suit what is fresh and in season. But the real question for the Italians: does it taste good? Buono? Si! It is healthy, environmentally friendly AND tasty.
Your natural, healthy and organic style of living does not have to be over when you are in Rome… Zazie is your answer to natural healthy eating and you will feel better for going- it’s an easy and delicious way to live well.
