Who says that the only way to be on a diet is to stay at home and eat boring food? Makrovega is exactly what the doctor ordered; health-concious yet delicious macrobiotic and vegetarian food. Makrovega have a replaced boring with sumptuous in their definition of healthy foods. They are located in a backstreet of the Varoš neighbourhood but their well-positioned signs make it easy enough to find.

So what exactly does Makrovega do to keep their menu low cal, low carb, low anything? Firstly, they craft a new menu everyday, depending on the season, the current weather, and the creativity of the chef. They work solely with organic grains and fresh vegetables, and use no additives or refined goods such as white sugar and flower. Makrovega make it s daily mission to be constantly up-to-date on the newest technologies, methods and trends within healthly eating, and they are eager to spread their gospel with regular cooking classes. 

Makrovega offers two dailiy menus; a vegetarian and macrobiotic menu. Now what's the difference you ask (and I ask too)? In simple terms, a vegetarian diet includes milk products whereas a microbiotic diet doesn't, but often uses soja as an ingredient. In stricter terms, the macrobiotic trend started in Japan and is more of a life philipophy (fining harmony between body and mind), stating that plants belong to the yin (which has a less agressive content) and meats belong to yang (which has violent and agressive content).

Oh and did we mention that Makrovega also have snacks at the counter so you are not obliged to a full menu on your visit, AND they do deliveries across town too. 

Makrovega also have another location called UpTown on Domovinskog rata, 1km from the center. They serve delicious over-the-counter healthy snacks such as tofu sandwitches, detox juices, and sugar free cakes; a popular lunch spot for the working peeps.
