Sabra Seligman is a fireball of energy and maybe that’s because the food she is serving at her new plant-based restaurant, Manna Life Food, is giving her all of that divine nourishment.
With her background deeply rooted in the wellness industry, Sabra set out to open a Wellness Center in Miami after spending a majority of her life living abroad. But she quickly came to realize that the last thing Miami needed was another spa. Instead, she set her sights higher and created Manna Life Food, a space where people can connect with mind, body and soul.
Born in West Africa from parents of Canadian and Colombian descent and under the tutelage of Chef Mark Reinfeld, she has drawn from her extensive travels and experiences to offer menu items and flavor combinations as diverse as all of the exotic places she's lived and visited.
With Manna Life Food slated to open on March 7th, Sabra has worked dutifully to offer Miami’s residents and visitors a healthy alternative in Downtown Miami to those that want to taste a little piece of heaven.

Back in Episode 4, we sat down with Alexis Garcia to discuss his upcoming challenge of running across the entire island of Cuba. Now he's back for Round 2 on the podcast to tell us all about this amazing feat and he brought his side-kick and planner extraordinaire wife, Marlene. After dealing with arduous conditions, the Cuban police and scarce resources, they completed the goal of running the entire island, 1,000 miles in less than 35 days. We talk all about their adventures and the upcoming documentary that they filmed of their experience. This is a laugh out loud episode that you don't want to miss.

Be Bold. Be Daring. Be Relevant. Maybe this is a phrase you would expect to hear from a cutting edge sports apparel line or from some new age inspirational Guru; but not from a small, local community theatre. But the Main Street Players is just that.
As they prepare to kick off their 2016 season, we sit down with Robert Coppel and Dennis Lyzniak, the Artistic Director and Playhouse Manager, respectively, and talk about how they got started in the theatre business as well as the impact theatre can have in our lives and our community and everything in between.
The Main Street Players Community Theatre is a hidden gem located in the quaint town of Miami Lakes. For as little as $25 per show, you can watch Pulitzer Prize winning plays for a fraction of the cost of the big, professional theatre’s while simultaneously supporting small business and up-and-coming actors. Their season opens with the award winning play, Water by the Spoonful, by Quiara Algería Hudes, directed by Robert Coppel and continues with Stage Kiss, Songs for a New World, and closes with another Pulitzer Prize winning play, Clybourne Park.
Affectionately coined (by us) the Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak of the local theatre scene, Robert brings his love and passion of acting, directing and theatre to bring bold, daring and relevant plays to his audience. And Dennis, a.k.a. the Theatre god (lowercase g) brings his structural engineering background and years of business acumen to build the sets, handle the cash flow and so much more. The Main Street Players is most definitely a success because of this dynamic theatre duo, but also because of all the volunteers behind the scenes and on stage who are making theatre going accessible to the masses.
Their commitment to this challenging but cathartic art form is apparent when they speak and they live up to their motto: Be bold, be daring, be relevant.
We hope you enjoy the interview.
