One of the best "healthy" restaurants in Geneva these days is I Feel Bio. Gluten and lactose-free, the restaurant stands out amongst others in this catergory as it serves meat as well as fish. One dish of each, to be exact. It caters to all: the juicers, the quinoa and kale addicts, the raw-foodists and to those that enjoy healthy, delicious cuisine. I've eaten lunch (when it's always packed) many times here and though I'm the type to always order the same thing, I force myself to change my order every time, because everything sounds amazing and caters to my picky, healthy eating habits.
One vegan dish that I love is a good old veggie burger. The problem with your typical veggie burger is that it's usually packed with soy and tons of beans - neither of which I love to digest. Forget the processed ones you can buy in the supermarket, they are so easy to make at home, and even easier to devour right here in the heart of Geneva at I Feel Bio. This veggie burger is made with beetroot and buckwheat - two of my favorite foods - and is served with raw sprouts, sliced tomato, horeradish sauce, and an incredible house-made buckwheat bread. When I can get my hands on a great piece of gluten-free bread, believe me, I do. The bun was so delicious as it was thin and tasted so fresh. Buckwheat is actually a fruit seed. It's a great source of digestible protein, it's high in fiber and mangesium and contains all 8 essential amino acids. It's also packed with phyto-nutrients which are amazing disease fighting organic compounds. Buckwheat is not only great for veggie burgers, check out my other recipes using this delicious seed!
