My turban-wearing, German healer on not drinking, eating meat, doing drugs or having sex-
Me: “what do you drink for a treat?”
Him: “sometimes I have tonic water…” *Asks for rum in my guava juice and sheds a tear for all the people in the world whose ‘treat yo’ self drink’ is tonic water. I also love tonic water if there is also gin.
But eating in Ubud is far from tonic water and sad salads… in fact some of the raw vegan food here is to die for and it rejuvenated my already pretty healthy diet back home through inspiration alone. Smoothie bowls and wheat grass shots abound, if you are the yogic type you will never be short of juicy, fresh health foods to nourish your body and soul… if not enjoy yourself a Bintang and don’t worry about it.

A lot of the time I ate in the garden cafe of Yoga Barn as this was where I was doing my yoga classes and because I was obsessed, but it was also a great place to meet very cool people. See menu here.
Even travelling now when I overhear people talking about doing yoga at Yoga Barn I reflexively chime in because I absolutely loved that place.
Here are some of my pictures to inspire you, should you want to explore the amazing health food Ubud has to offer.
