A Must Eat At In Tulum: Real Coconut KitchenDec 02, 2021
I spent a week in Tulum, Mexico and it was absolutely amazing! It was so beautiful and sunny. The perfect beach getaway! Tulum had so much to offer, but one of my favorite food spots was the Real Coconut Kitchen Tulum.
The Real Coconut Kitchen is plant-focused, 100% gluten, grain and dairy free. They feature small amounts of impeccably sourced animal protein and provide an absolutely delicious vibrant experience.
The conscious menu was designed with "every body" in mind. There is everything from salads, chicken fingers, chocolate smoothie bowls, to fish and chips. I dont' usually get the fish and chips because of the nature of it, but seeing it on the menu was a real treat! It was the best fish and chips I have ever had to date! The crispy gluten-free batter was unbelievable. The fries were made from yuca, which is a tropical root vegetable, much like a potato. They only cook with avocado or coconut oil. You won't find soy, corn, peanuts, cashews, or refined sugar in any of their dishes.
How do we nourish ourselves while we nurture our world? When we live naturally we are also taking care of the environment. Nature provides us with everything we need, we just have to embrace it and receive it.
