Hi lovelies! Happy Sunday! Hope you’ve got some amazing plans for today to make the most of the weekend. So I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t try out at least one of the healthy eating places in Nice whilst I was there. There is one I’ve been following on social media for a while called Caju I’ve been wating to try out, a vegan place found in the old town.
Their menu is very small with only two salad type dishes and maybe three burgers to choose from. Their smoothie menu is huuuge on the other hand. Filled with lots of delicious choices (I struggled big time trying to decide which one to have). A nice thing with smoothies is that they are made with Caju’s homemade almond or soya milk (depending on your preference). Sanna who was with me struggled to find one she could have because she doesn’t like bananas and all of them unfortunately had banana in them. Who doesn’t love bananas Sanna? 😛 She ordered a nice juice instead so she was happy.
For food I went for one of their raw salad type things with mushroom “meatballs” and Sanna had one of the burgers. That’s where I made the wrong choice, my dish was unfortunately very tiny and quite boring whilst Sanna’s burger was AMAZING and huge. I couldn’t understand the difference in size for about the same prize, especially when you need quite a lot of veg to fill up. I only got three tiny mushroom meatballs so yeah I was not super happy with my dish but I would definitely go back for one of those burgers. Yum! I’m not sure how they’re made but seeing the dish I had was raw I’m sure they would take great care to make the burger as healthy as possible and not deep frying the “patty bit”, a lot of restaurants unfortunately do that to their veggie burgers. My smoothie “Cheeky Monkey” was amazing though. It tasted like a delicious peanut butter and chocolate milkshake, so good.
I wanted to go back with Jamie when he came down but we just didn’t find the time to go back which was a shame. Next time!
