Rice Fields in Ubud, Bali

My friend and raw model Anthony told me to find Sari Organics in Ubud. I was ecstatic to finally find it on my 2nd visit to Ubud. I had one of the best medicinal herb salads ever, made with organic herbs from the fields and also gathered from the forest. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend this afternoon than chilling with my good friend in the middle of rice fields with a beautiful view and a bounty of delicious, fresh foods.

We had to walk a good 15 minutes or more to get to the organic cafe in the middle of the rice fields. An amazing journey with an organic treasure at the end. And walking is always the best exercise.



I even came upon a compost pile on the way. Someone was eating durian, I can see the rind in the heap.

I had been fasting the prior day and earlier this day only because some nuts I’d eaten didn’t digest very well. Our driver Wayan and Carol were starving, so they pulled over at a road side satay stand to enjoy local snacks. I like this photo, and we can imagine the satay to be vegetables or tofu for our purposes here….though, as you all know, I’m no fan of unhealthy processed fake tofu meats.

    Oh… what nice memories come up reading this. Sari Organic is my favorite place of all times. I have been to Bali 3 times in the past two years catering raw food for the Radiantly Alive Yoga Teacher Training in Ubud, and Sari is always my most favorite escape to wind down, watch the beautiful sunset and have a healthy meal from organic gardens. Greets from a fellow raw chef from Germany :-)

    I loved this place, after that long hot walk through the rice fields (where we were stopped by a snake!)we were definitely ready for some chilled gazpacho in the shade.
