Some of our local Sayulita surfers will soon be heading to compete in the Mexican National Surf Games in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, from October 28th, 2019, through November 10th, 2019. These young athletes have been training and competing for a long time in order to be ready for this amazing opportunity. The local non-profit organization Pro Sayulita generously stepped up to help the competitors, by giving a donation to the team to assist in covering some of the expenses of the tournament.

I have always LOVED donuts! These days most of us are watching what we eat; many try to eat low fat, avoid sugars, or are gluten intolerant, etc. Thus, donuts may no longer be on our radar. I honestly had not eaten a donut for years because they are usually deep fried. However, last month I came upon a most delicious gluten-free baked donut recipe that I absolutely have to share with you! They are so light and airy, and have a delicious chocolate glaze.

If you take beach walks in Sayulita, you might encounter dogs wearing strikingly colorful beaded collars as they run, wrestle, and swim in the ocean. You might also see people around town wearing similarly styled beaded bracelets, and designers working on the streets creating these pieces. These works of art are hand crafted by members of the native Huichol tribe. One Sayulita couple recently launched an online store called Boho Mango to help support local Huichol artisans by marketing these beautiful collars and bracelets to the world.

El Pescador Poke Bar, a family owned restaurant, is new to Sayulita as of this year, 2019. The restaurant is named “El Pescador” or “The Fisherman” after the owners, who actually are local fishermen here in Sayulita who fish and source all of the seafood for the restaurant. I talk with head chef, Edgar Torres about the restaurant’s background, menu, and of course, all of the fresh and delicious seafood on the menu.

Today I was craving a nice light pizza for lunch that was not too doughy. In this hot Sayulita weather, I often want a meal that will fill me up while still feeling light and fresh. Do you feel that way sometimes? For the longest time I have been trying out different pizza crust options; I have made the Napoli style organic unbleached wheat flour crust, and it is my actual favorite, but I am trying to stay away from carbohydrates as much as I can. I have also tried the keto fat-head crust; I personally like it, but my husband finds it too rich & heavy. Then, for awhile I made cauliflower crust pizzas, but they are so labor intensive. Thus, last week I came across a recipe for a Crispy Cheese Crust. I tried it and was pretty impressed with the results. This recipe is the perfect option for when you are in the mood for a very fast, crispy crust!
