Supporting the Arts, One Ceviche at a Time

On Saturday, January 17 and Sunday, January 18, the My Ceviche crew was selling ceviche and stone crabs to patrons of the Beaux Arts Festival at the University of Miami. This two-day juried show is consistently ranked as one of the top 200 fine arts shows in the United States. The festival benefits Beaux Arts, which works to promote art in the community and bring patrons to the Lowe Art Museum, located on the University of Miami’s campus.

Our time on campus allowed us to interact with lots of residents in the South Miami area as well as University of Miami students. We’ve worked with the University of Miami on several projects – all of our blog posts about nutritional data include information collected by University of Miami students, in fact – and have participated in events hosted by University of Miami students, including the Dance Marathon and the launch party for Distraction magazine. We’ve also been hooking up UM students – all students, really – with Student Day (50% off burritos with a valid student ID every Tuesday)!

If you weren’t able to make it to the festival this weekend, be sure to check it out in 2016! There will be plenty of food to be eaten and plenty of art to be admired. And if you can’t wait, just make your way over to the Lowe Art Museum.

An Inside Look at Our Asian Ceviche

Our Asian style ceviche is arguably the most underrated ceviche style on our menu. We love it for its flavor, but there are so many more reasons to love it.

When you get your Asian style ceviche, you’ll notice the little heap of seaweed salad. Not only is it tasty but also high in fiber, so your stomach gets filled up and your systems get… er… regulated. Fiber helps digestion and reduces fat absorption, so you can fit into those new jeans you haven’t worn since 2014!

The iodine in seaweed salad is a key component of the hormones of your thyroid too. Why care about your thyroid, you ask? Well, your thyroid plays a key role in energy regulation, so you can get active! Go out there and kayak or take a jog. Seaweed salad will help you with that.

The other little pile of heaven that comes with your Asian style ceviche is mango. The golden flesh of one of our favorite tropical fruits contains enzymes that help you break down proteins, plus it’s packed with Vitamin C and Vitamin A. Mango also contains 25 different kinds of carotenoids, which aid in boosting your immune system, and is high in iron.

Sure, you may be stuck on our Ají Amarillo and Tradicional styles, which have their own awesome health benefits too, but next time try out our Asian style ceviche. We promise you won’t regret it.
