Inter-Continental Superfood Brunch
Schwartz Living Market
Pittsburgh, PA
Share this event: 

Raw acai chia falooda, fermented green tea salad and more...

Gluten free, vegan, soy free, unprocessed and with no
refined sugar......yes, it's possible.

A part of the monthly Saturday Superfood Brunch series, this
is a one-of-a-kind slow food event that typically runs for 2-3 hours, allowing guests to eat mindfully, socialize, network,
have intellectual conversations, get informed about healing superfood ingredients and enjoy themselves while the food comes out course after course. By eating mindfully and not loading up on empty calories and carbs, guests leave more
than full, nourished and satisfied. This is not a buffet, and
table manners will be expected.


Enjoy a-whole-new-level vegan brunch items crafted by Chef Mya Zeronis of Lean Chef en Route/extraVEGANza, using GMO-free, local, organic ingredients and NO refined sugar, gluten, processed textured mock meats, vegetable protein isolates TVPs and processed vegan cheeses.

A chef who weighs 98 pounds, Mya Zeronis started cooking plant-strong Burmese farm food in her parents' kitchen at the age of 11. Despite her decade-long career in conventional, meat-centric, butter-drowned, flour-covered and
sugar-coated U.S. restaurant kitchens, she identified a need
for healthful foods in Pittsburgh and made it her business in 2013. By returning to her roots, she resolved some of her
health issues resulted from eating whatever was readily available in restaurant kitchens. Her multifaceted business (personal chef and catering services, raw organic juice bar, vegan whole food cafe and monthly plant-based superfood brunches) aims to make healthy eating and sustainable living accessible. Nearly a dozen of her recipes won top prizes in national and local contests. Some others were published in magazines and cookbooks.

Introducing extraVEGANza! It's the newest business to grace Schwartz Living Market!

Welcome extraVEGANza to Schwartz Living Market!! We are so excited! Go to this link to be part of the process: Just cut the link below, and paste it into your browser, and you'll help Mya big time, to launch her newest venture!

Mya Zeronis's business is morphing from Zest Wishes and The Lean Chef en Route to the 98 Pound Chef...Yes, you read that correctly! Mya was 145 pounds at one time!! Take a look at some recent blogging by a few of the bloggers at the brunch in April, 2015, and you'll see what I'm talking about. You'll see Mya spinning a giant piece of pizza dough! Those links can be found from the Schwartz Living Market Facebook Page.

What is new and what is next? Schwartz Living Market: An Urban Oasis for Healthful Living is an amazingly open, inspirational, changeable, fruitful, sensorimotor experience! When you find yourself asking what is next, what is this process, what is this project, know that you're talking to yourself, raising your awareness, and thinking about what is next for you too!!

Schwartz Living Market is selling delicious VivaPura superfood Buddha's Delight mixes, Vitality Super Mixes, and more! We also sell inspirational books by Brian Clement, Ph.D. of the Hippocrates Health Institute and his amazing wife, Anna Marie Clement, Ph.D. whose raw, vegan cookbook is outstanding!

Join us at the market on May 9. 2015 anytime between 11:00 AM and 5:00 PM for a shot of wheatgrass juice, and beginning at 1:00 PM for Mya's amazing 14 course delicious meal. Allow three hours to savor the food, one course at a time. Yup, the meal is served over a course of three hours. Ingredients for the first make your own juice of the day will be available when you arrive, and the fun continues course by course over the following three hours. Mya grew up in Burma, in a different culture than those of us that grew up in the United States. This Slow Foods meal will be one of those experiences you will not forget. Where else in the 'Burgh can you be served a 14 course meal over the course of three hours that is VEGAN, ORGANIC, GLUTEN-FREE, and GMO-free and if you register early or for a series of meals, the total cost is $15.00? It's unheard of! So register soon for an individual meal or for the series, otherwise the price creeps up to the also amazingly reasonable rate of $35.00/person. I am 100% convinced that a meal of this amazing quality would cost $75.00 if it were being served at a fancy establishment at the top of Mt. Washington or in Shadyside!!

Stay tuned for the exact date when Mya will be open in Schwartz Living Market five days a week from 9:00 AM to 8:30 PM serving grab and go Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner!

We are excited and blessed! Thanks so much to Violet, a graduate of Duquesne University in the field of Sustainability and Finance, and Sally graduates soon and who volunteered their time at the market and helped us get the WIFI up and running!

Blessings to all of you for a happy and healthy springtime!
