It can all be a little overwhelming, the city may not be huge but the culture, activities, events, eateries etc. is vast. So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.
Mother bcn – injecting nothing but raw goodness
You’ve probably been told several times in your lifetime that you should go and visit mother, and if you’re in Barcelona we’ll tell you the same because Mother bcn is seriously good for the body. Ok, the city has somewhat been slow with regards to tasty organic, celiac and vegetarian options, but things have seriously picked up. Mother bcn is proof, a raw food concept bang in the city center. Don’t have a juicer? On a detox? This is the place to head to if you want to get cleansed inside out.
Juices and soups are all prepared on location and bottled up for you to take home. You can choose from the 05 Rewind (orange, carrot, and fresh turmeric), 02 Turbo (carrot, apple and ginger goodness) and you can also top up on your veggies to keep the doctors happy too. All is prepared using a cold press system, which does not alter the taste and retains all the nutrients of the produce. Vegetable milks and butters, ice cream, fresh cereal bars, granola and more can also be purchase here. You can also pop in for a shot of wheatgrass, we must admit it isn’t the tastiest but is packed with vitamin A, potassium, B vitamins and more! A selection of detox packages are a nice touch and range from 1-4 days, where you only consume their juices and water. They can be delievered direct to your door (within Barcelona city ) for 7euros, helping you stay on course during your detox. We think that’s all a good excuse to go and pick something up at Mother’s.
