This Week on BeachWitch Way

This Week on BeachWitch WayBeachWitch Way is the green path for the best local EcoFriendly services, sustainable products, and community events. This week, as BeachWitch flew around Miami she spotted some ‘Green Magic’: in an amazing cold soup from a crazy “Tio”, with a French glutton in South Pointe, who sent his pets for some FunPawCare with a local vegan CEO (Canine Executive Officer) who was Standing Among Friends near a Jungle Island, discussing an Electric Pear in Halloween costumes from ‘Out of the Closet’, to join Sabrina’s Circle (no relation to Sabrina the Teenage Witch) before one of those awesome beachcomber ECOMB-er events this fall or just in time for the latest Movie on the Wall!

Tio Gazpacho shocked Miami this month by introducing a line of all-vegan all natural all-healthy all-amazing Gazpacho soups that are ready to serve whenever you crave something wonderful! Move over smoothie and step aside, there is a newer, healthier, more awesome option available for those of us who need a healthy ‘fast’ food made from ‘slow’ ingredients by hand. Austin Allen stunned us all when he created a tantalizing array of different Gazpachos made from all natural local ingredients that not only embody the essence of healthy eating but also satisfy the finest of palates. From classic tomato based, to almond and even spinach varieties, this Gazpacho has perfected the standard and redefined it for a whole new generation.
