Live food advocate Pat Wright marked another milestone with her passion, Wright Life Live Food Eatery, when the brand officially opened its second location at the luxe spa at Round Hill Hotel & Villas in Hanover.

The eatery had its genesis at Fairview Shopping Centre in Montego Bay and Wright has promised a third location for Devon House in Kingston by the end of February.

Live food is mainly plant-based foods in their original, unheated (uncooked) state and are considered raw and alive. Raw food may include fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouts, grains and legumes in sprouted form, seaweed, microalgae (such as spirulina and chlorella, etc), and fresh juices. These live foods contain a wide range of vital life force nutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, oxygen) and live enzymes. Their nutritional properties are essential to the proper maintenance of human bodily functions.

The new location offers a similar menu including items such as salads, pizzas and burgers like the ackee burger, made with jerked ackee burger patty, sweet peppers, Scotch bonnet pepper, lettuce, tomato, red onions, beetroot, pickles and organic homemade ketchup. Desserts include cheesecake, made from puréed fruits, blended with cashew cheese, almond and walnut crust and shredded coconut. A wide range of juices is also offered including mango turmeric, beetroot and carrot, pine and ginger and cucumber juice.

“I'm very excited about this new expansion. This brings the food to a different market that is already familiar with raw foods. I'm still introducing Jamaica to live food. For some clients at the spa this type of food is already a way of life for them,” said Wright.

Omar Robinson, general manager, Round Hill Hotel & Villas, shared his enthusiasm for the new venture and noted that this will add to the charm of Round Hill.

“Our philosophy is to use as much locally grown food products as possible. So, in addition to our organic garden on property and our “See, Touch, Taste” culinary programme, the new lunch offerings by Wright Life Eatery at the Round Hill Spa represent our commitment to constantly improving the quality and diversity of our award-winning culinary experience. Globally, the interest in health and wellness is not only becoming a growing trend in travel, but an increasing lifestyle demand by this generation. People are now aware that vegetarian and vegan meals are not limited to just fancy salads, and the meal options offered by Wright Life are so delicious and enticing that everyone will be fulfilled. I'm sure our guests will appreciate the new dining option. We also invite everyone to come experience the new essence of Round Hill — to eat what we grow and grow what we eat,” Robinson stated.

“We are looking to get bigger and better and to see more persons embracing live foods as a way of life, and getting more aware of the health benefits of eating this way,” Wright concluded.
