We have a new baby at EcoVida: our friends at Rancho Mastatal gave us some water kefir grains to start a culture and we are thrilled about it. But, have you ever heard of Kefir? Here’s a short introduction in case you are missing the benefits of this wonder.
Playa Bejuco is a small quiet town in Puntarenas province which has been chosen for many retired people to settle, either permanently as expats/immigrants or as tourists visiting a few times a year for long periods. This gave the town the fame of being a boring-southern Florida-type of place, but there is nothing further from the reality.
Although it is not a bustling village, the minute one gets here you can feel such a laid-back atmosphere that you will fall in love with Bejuco, whether you are travelling with your family or if you are on a romantic getaway. And if you are in a party mood, you can always drive less than half an hour away to Jacó.
In previous posts we had been on and on about how mind-blowing Costa Rica is for foodies: thriving with fresh fruits, vegetables and fish. The Playa Bejuco area is a paradise for conscientious eaters.
At EcoVida we have our own banana trees and organic edible garden, which inspired us to cook this tasty banana bread .This recipe is vegan-friendly, healthy, organic, sugar free, super thrifty and can be easily transformed into gluten-free as well.
