5 Fast-Food Lunches Served at The Yogi Bar That Are Actually Healthy

The Yogi Bar is a juice bar, café and yoga studio that opened this past January at Marina Vallarta’s boardwalk, featuring a wide range of healthy beverages and snacks, such as detox juices, smoothies, smoothie bowls, salads and toasts, many of which are also referred to as superfoods, nutrient powerhouses that pack large doses of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Owners, Abigail García and Laura Aranda, shared a common interest in veganism and vegetarianism some time last year and came up with the idea of the venue. Despite the fact the young entrepreneurs didn’t have previous experience in business, they decided to “go for it and made it happen.”

We wanted to offer a healthy fast food option so people could have an in-between  meal snack with ingredients like superfoods, whose properties are highly nutritious.

The place offers a chic, beach-style decoration and ambiance that perfectly complements its laid-back concept. An added bonus: their dishes are presented so beautifully, you’ll be inclined to take a snapshot and share it before your first bite.

Get a taste of the healthy grub served at The Yogi Bar with these five fast-food lunches, ideal options to savor after an exercise routine or as in-between meal snacks.
