September in Sayulita tends to be one long hot steamy month, and what could be better than a light, healthy breakfast to start the day? Let me introduce you to Turkish eggs. I know what you’re thinking… yogurt and eggs? But let me assure you this is one of the best combinations I’ve ever had and it is now officially my favorite breakfast/brunch/midday snack. Picture this, a creamy dollop of labneh/yogurt, two perfectly poached eggs, drizzled (heavily) with chili garlic butter, topped with herby za’atar, optional goats cheese, salt, and pepper accompanied by some warm toasted bread. Voila! This dish…

Sayulita Life’s $5000 donation will go to the Jaibitos Jr, the local junior baseball team. The donation will help buy 5 dozen new baseballs for their pitching machine which was donated a few years ago. This is very beneficial for training as it is used with a lot of repetition for the children to bat. With this donation, the baseball team will be able to continue training and competing in local events. We had the opportunity to hear from the head coach of the Jaibitos, Fernando Lopez, who told us a little about the young baseball team. Can you tell…

Burrata, Tomatoes And Basil Oh My! Here’s a super easy, throw-together salad recipe, perfect for hot Sayulita days or nights! I love sourcing unusual fresh ingredients when possible, so I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands on some home-grown yellow, orange and marbled tomatoes. These tomato varieties are quite easy to grow at home, you can get seeds packet at places like Home Depot, or even online. If you manage to get your hands on a more exotic tomato I encourage you to save a few seeds and replant, soon enough you’ll have enough tomatoes to create this…

This month’s recipient of Sayulita Life’s $5,000 donation is Banco de Tapitas, a private non-profit organization that was officially formed in 2015. Banco de Tapitas uses money earned from their recycling program to provide care for patients battling cancer all over the country, from infants up to 21 year-old young adults. They have several support programs and initiatives, but their most recent project is the creation of a large metal heart-shaped structure for collecting recycling, that will soon be placed in Sayulita’s main plaza; this large structure will not only be a work of art and a beautiful addition to our artistic and vibrant plaza, but it will help to gain attention and encourage people to recycle their plastic bottle caps-- all for the wonderful cause in raising money for sick children and young adults. Sayulita Life’s $5,000 donation went directly toward the purchase of materials to actually create the large metal structure; more specifically, to fabricate a two meter metal structure in the form of heart that will be installed in the main square of Sayulita.
