Congratulations @Nancykremerfor being selected as a semi-finalist at the Burbank International Film Festival!!
To be honest, the idea of making a movie about the life of Max Gerson was one of my wild dreams in the past 💁♀️(#whynot ) simply because his life and life-work are SO IMPORTANT not to spread. 💚
Really, this man made a huge impact on medicine that will only increase in time with more and more people realizing that #foodismedicine ! 🍏🥕
During my visit to China, I was lucky enough to meet Nancy and we hit it off instantly. I am beyond happy to see her work out in the world. I am beyond happy to have another #strongwoman with such a strong belief in Max Gerson and his work that she wants the world to know. I am beyond happy to see that her work is paying off and she has been elected as a semi-finalist. 🙌
Please, go watch her short movie. Be inspired. Make changes and most of all: spread the word! 🙏

Wow......what an amazing day. Thank you so much to everyone that popped in to see us on a miserable rainy day. We had major till issues and you were all super patience with us. So good to see everyone weighing and packing and bringing their own containers!
These @chillysbottles were a huge hit today. They are fantastic at keeping your water cool for 24hrs and they look amazing. Great that so many are ditching the plastic for reusable - we offer free water in store so help yourself:)
So happy to see Paula @organicmylk it’s been a long day getting Viva ready to open and this has put a huge smile on Shev’s face.
The monkeys aka Lola and Rafi are going to love this. I’m sure @hygge_for_home will be a fan too!
So pleased we can bring this to Cardiff - the taste is amazing. Better still we will be serving Almond and Oat milk on tap - yes on tap! Bring your own bottle or use a glass @organicmylk one. So much better than any mylk you can buy from the supermarket.
Happy Friday everyone hope to see you over the weekend.
Black and Yellow. Black and Yellow. 🎧🖤💛🎼 Thank goodness for Black and Yellow....on the field, in the arena, and in our coolers!
Have you tried the cold-pressed Black or Yellow? Detoxification to the max!
Any tea lovers? We have just unpacked all our organic teas. Shev’s been super busy sorting through everything and is really excited that we can offer such a good selection.
One of her favourites is chamomile which is great for promoting sleep, it’s an immunity booster and good anti inflammatory. We have Rooibos which is packed with antioxidants, turmeric root a brilliant anti inflammatory and used in the treatment of cancer. We have lots of other teas, including spearmint and peppermint, green teas and Jasmin tea. They are behind our juice bar and available to buy loose. We wanted to offer loose tea to buy as a lot of the teabags use plastic in their mesh. We are trying our best to minimise plastic where we can, but like others who are conscious of plastic waste we are trying hard to make an impact but we are far from perfect.
Finally there.....well I say that but there’s still a lot of work left to. Feels great to have the organic fruit and veg arrive today and bringing Viva to life.
I got roped into doing a press release today by Shev, she neglected to tell me that we had to do a filmed interview - totally out of my comfort zone but if it helps get the message out to ditch plastic then it’s worth the pain.
I’m sure we’ll have lots of funny comments on the story. Thanks for all the insta support and all our friends and family who have helped out with the monkeys aka Lola and Rafi while we’ve been frantically working to get Viva opened.
The pressure is on big time but we are excited for Saturday. .
We couldn’t agree more :) thanks @jadefishercardco for dropping these off. Excited to be supporting local supplier and stocking these fab cards @viva_organic
Mehdi and I are working hard getting all the deliveries unpacked. The store smells amazing, mix of spices, fruit powders, and fresh @extractcoffee - actually makes a good combination.
Our till arrived today, it was temporarily lost in transit and at one point we didn’t think it would turn up - but we were so glad when it did. I’m glad to see the end of the till drama which has delayed us opening by two weeks but we have them now and we are super pleased on how easy they are to use......even Lola and Rafi could tare their jars when they popped in for a visit.
We are opening this weekend so pop in if you are passing.
What are you going to try first? Unpacked or juice?!! .
Did I mention that we are stocking organic alcohol? We have wine, beer, cider, gin, whisky and even organic vodka!
Organic alcohol is made from ingredients which are free from harmful pesticides and chemicals. So it’s better for the body than non organic and better for the planet.
When selecting what organic lines to stock the main feedback from our taste testers was the smoothness of the organic versions, especially the spirits. Whether they give you less of a hangover I’m not sure - you’ll have to let us know.
For any vegan followers we have a great selection of vegan wines, organic and sulphite free. For any non vegans who are wondering how a wine can have animal products in I’ll leave that to Shev to explain!
Any of you prefer organic wines? Do you taste a difference? .
