Healthy Hollywood: Fab Food Friday – Dine Like Beyonce!

Celebrities often dine at the best restaurants on the planet. For us mere mortals, trendy eateries can be hard to get reservation at and are often located in faraway places – not to mention the menus tend to be on the pricey side.

Bonito restaurant in St. Barts is a hotspot for celebrity sightings. Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z, along with Simon Cowell and Michael J. Fox all favor the multi-cultural dining.

While most of us won’t get to island-hop to St Barts anytime soon – you can bring a taste of the island into your home. Bonito’s shares with Healthy Hollywood its recipe for ceviche – its best-known dish.

Plus, this Peruvian classic packs a nutritional punch. Tuna is a lean protein that’s rich in omega fatty acids and raw fish is rich in phosphorus, which helps to build strong bones.
