Let’s take a culinary adventure down Ital road, it’s not only eye-opening, but is incredibly fun and versatile.
Ital food is unprocessed, whole, salt-free, vegetarian, or vegan. Cooking and eating this way contributes to energy, detoxification, nourishment and (surprise!) a lot of flavor. Unfortunately through mass marketing, much of society has subconsciously swallowed this idea that highly processed food filled with salt, grease and sugar are more tasty and appealing than natural, whole dishes.
At Tmrw.Tday, we are beyond thrilled to announce teen motivational speaker, youth health activist and vegan chef Haile Thomas as an official ambassador for our inaugural culture fest in Negril, Jamaica May 17-13.
Sixteen-year-old Haile is a true go-getter. Already, she’s the youngest certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She’s also the founder and executive director of the HAPPY Organization. The teen entrepreneur created HAPPYto address the need for free and or low cost nutrition and culinary education for young people in at-risk communities in Tucson, Arizona in 2012.

Learn Patois with our new campaign, it aims to help culture fest attendees learn a phrase or two to use when in Negril. The term “patois” stems from Old French meaning local or regional dialect and originates from creole languages of West Africa.

Introducing the 7 Mile Organic Food Festival! Tmrw.Tday invites you to send your tastebuds on a frenzy and embark on a pilgrimage of food appreciation. Jamaica is home to a rich cuisine packed with colour, flavour and life. While this cuisine may have made its mark on the rest of the world, the 7 Mile Organic Food Festival aims to share the story of how this country nourishes its people. Bob Marley’s son Ziggy remembers this distinct Jamaican flavour from his youth.
