NUTRITION FIRST

MARINA RIBAS Marina Ribas isn ́t mincing her words about how the industry tricks many naïve consumers into thinking that they are eating healthy.

Fat, eggs and oily fish are not the devil, says the 29-year-old Ibizan. In addition to the packaged foods filling supermarkets, what we should actually avoid are fish farms, meat from confined cows, and also fruits and vegetables that are pumped with so many chemicals that we can eat strawberries in January and grapefruit in August. Marina studied childhood education, but five years ago, health problems and her fondness of cuisine encouraged her to dive head first into the world of nutrition. 

Little by little, her interest became her career. Marina started a blog and now her social networks have gone viral. She gives cooking, grocery shopping and healthy eating workshops and has even ventured into podcasts. There, she discloses the knowledge that she acquires while visiting markets and local producers. In her opinion, there is nothing better than feeding yourself something from nearby. "We have amazing local food, with a spectacular nutritional density, but they're lost in the world of marketing. Take liver, a truly vitamin-rich food, for example: we turn our nose up at it because we have lost the tradition of eating the entire animal. As the English say: from nose to tail." Marina adds several more dishes to the same basket: sardines, tripe, bone-based broths like our grandmothers made and even – here ́s to hoping no quinoa-nazi pulls their hair out – butter. Sourdough and slow, wood-fired oven fermented bread is a must at every healthy table, drenched in extra-virgen olive oil of course -no one is immune. So you have to know better Ibiza and everything it can offer.
