I found the MOST DELICIOUS recipe for Mexican Chorizo Meatball Sandwiches last week! After all, we live in Sayulita, so let’s cook with some Mexican style flavors! If you eat meat, I believe that you will really enjoy this recipe. Served in a fresh baked bolillo (baguette) with homemade mayonnaise and chipotle peppers, it makes your mouth water just thinking about it!

Can you explain to readers what the “Wellness Fest” event is? The Wellness Fest is a two day health and wellness event here in Sayulita, which will be held at Nirvanna Spa on Friday, May 3rd, 2019, through Saturday, May 4th, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. This event is for anyone looking for multidisciplinary treatments of different health related aspects addressed to personal care. Myself (Dr. Barbara Nester) & Nirvanna Spa both aim to provide the best services with the best prices for our entire community of Sayulita, as well as, of course, for our friends who visit each year, or even first-timers. We will also be providing courses, free yoga aid, and various specials on treatments for aesthetic medicine, nutrition, and spa services. For this festival, we are promoting to the community our new menu of facials for all skin types and skin concerns, with our new professional line called “Repechage”. Also, of course the rest of our normal services for wellness will be included, such as our signature massages, body scrubs, body masks, manicures, pedicures, cupping massages, and heat therapy with the "Soqui bed".

MexiTreks in Sayulita offers clients fun jungle hikes, sea kayaking, snorkeling tours, and more, here in both Sayulita and its surrounding areas. However, more than just a tour company, MexiTreks prides themselves on taking the opportunity to educate their guests about our local ecosystems and environmental preservation. Eddie Ochoa, owner of MexiTreks, shares with me his passion for what he and his company get to do here in Sayulita, how he gets to influence others in teaching about environmental awareness, and how he spreads his message for respecting nature through the work his company does in the community.

Have you ever heard the expression “Everything but the kitchen sink”? If not, it’s an expression that implies that you use any and everything you have available in your kitchen (besides the sink, of course) to create a meal. This means anything and everything goes in terms of what ingredients you use! I have heard the expression used before for cookies, but today I wanted to call this column “Everything But The Kitchen Sink Frittata! As long as you have eggs and cheese in your fridge, the sky's the limit as to what you can use to make this very yummy breakfast frittata. It is easy to make in your Sayulita kitchen, and delicious!

I first discovered Sayulita about 25 years ago. I was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, and I have been coming to Sayulita all of my life. Back then, it wasn’t as popular as it is now, but it was and is still just as beautiful. My brother and I both love surfing, and we had been told that Sayulita had a great beach and excellent waves for surfers, so we decided to check it out. That is how we made our first trip to Sayulita and discovered its magic. Now I live in California and I visit Sayulita twice a year. I have traveled all around the area, from Vallarta to Compostela. I also camped with my family in Chacala, as well as visited Guayabitos, Las Peñita, and San Pancho. However, nothing can compare to Sayulita! I always look forward to my trips; there’s no way I would ever change my vacation to go somewhere else except Sayulita!
