Todos Santos, Mexico
She is actually Cindy and Javier, they opened Todos Los Sanos three months ago. The town is a bit if a former hippie place where lots of retirees now live so there are many organic and health food options here – along with expat prices.
But Cindy wanted to keep prices low so this is no frills kind of place. You won’t find organic wheat grass or nut butters but you will find these two trying to get locals to eat more fresh fruits and veggies.
They are converts themselves, after they quit smoking they both gained considerable weight and then heard of the documentary Fat Sick and Nearly Dead where a truckdriver turned his life around with juice.
I have spent every morning here, talking to them about juice, urging them to visit Oaxaca. People come in and out and you can see some ate believers while others turn their nose up at the spinach in my drink and we laugh as I promise if they throw a little spinach in with strawberry and pineapple they won’t taste it.
Word is spreading fast amongst, Executive Chef Dany from Hotel California has his own recipe on the wall amongst many other concoctions.
It’s kind of a special place to be somewhere on the verge of changing people.
