Healthful Food Tastes So Good

Pollo Tropical, El Rey de las Fritas, Subs on the Run, Five Guys Burgers and Fries. Those restaurants were the bane of many a Miamian’s existence in 2008. There’s an abundance of unhealthful fast-food joints to be discovered here, and the proof is in the greasy-ass paper bag the cashier slides to you after your unfortunate purchase. We’ve got to do better, people! It’s 2009 — a new dawn, a new day, a new life. And in order for us to start feeling groovy, we’re getting ready for a new healthy lifestyle. And we’re listening to the wise words of Dr. Etti Ben-Zion, who describes herself as “South Florida’s leading detox doctor.” She has been offering Miami’s well-intentioned and well-to-do a chance at renewal with her seven-day detox program, and she will host the first Cleanse Miami seminar Saturday, January 31, and Sunday, February 1. You, health-conscious local on a budget, can learn from the beautiful lady who’s ascending to the Dr. Agaston diet-doctor throne, during this Monday’s free Healthy Shopping Tour with Dr. Etti.

Meet at 5 p.m. at Whole Foods South Beach, and bring a notepad, ’cause you’ll be learning a lot. As you follow Dr. Etti from aisle to aisle, she’ll drop knowledge about planning and preparing healthful meals; introduce you to the benefits of edibles such as chard, kale, quinoa, and flaxseed; and prove to you exactly why you need to read the label on everything that passes your lips. Did we mention the free samples? Oh yeah, and they’re surprisingly tasty too! Call Whole Foods at 305-532-1707 with questions, or visit to learn more about the latest health craze that’s about to sprout from Miami.
