855_veganRenée Adams-Pereira brings back healthy with 'Earth & Sea'

Renée M. Adams-Pereira will embark on a mission to put health meals on the tables of families and in the stomachs of individuals with her new vegan and vegetarian & seafood cuisine catering business "Earth & Sea."

Earth & Sea will officially start its full-time operations in August. Adams-Pereira will be taking lunch and dinner orders for pick up or delivery. Her dishes can be received ready- to-eat or ready-to-finish in one's own kitchen. She will also do large preparations for restaurants that would like to expand their vegetarian menus.

Adams-Pereira grew up loving food, especially vegetables and fish she used to pull from the lake behind her house in Framingham, Massachusetts. She loves to educate people about the benefits of various foods and their benefits to the body. She is also a licensed Muscular Therapist, retired professional Jazz dancer and an avid seeker of truth behind the mysteries of life.

All of the food from Earth & Sea will be vegetarian, vegan & seafood. Most items can be made vegan as well. The menu will be revolving with some constants such as "eatballs." She will have eatball subs, spaghetti and eatballs, tahini satay eatballs, eggplant rollatini, quinoa and southern style collard greens, various soups, (vegetarian) "chicken" and dumplings, tuna burgers, teriyaki salmon, Parmesan filet of snapper, scalloped potatoes and more. She said she has "many a dish" under her sleeves.

Adams-Pereira will be preparing the food herself for the time being. When she finds a suitable location she will train someone to work with her and learn the recipes. "Ideally the candidate will share the same passion for food, health and wellness as I do."

She decided to start the seafood catering service, because she found the island currently does not have many options for people with vegan and vegetarian diets. "And we do eat more than salad. Also cross contamination is a big deal that we must consider when dining anywhere so I want to remove that nervousness."

Her target market are persons who are seeking the types of food she will be serving, those who are transitioning or persons who just choose to eat healthier and those looking to learn more about the food health connection.

People will be able to order by calling her, ideally a day in advance and placing their orders.

Adams-Pereira has been in the service industry for more than 20 years and has been cooking and preparing food since she was a little girl in her grandmother's kitchen. She has been vegetarian for about 27 years. "By the time I changed from eating meat I had learned so much about the way animals were being treated, the meat/disease connection, nutrition and the hormones that humans ingest through the food; it was an easy transition," she said.

"I choose to be a vegetarian because I'm allergic to chicken and I refuse to eat anything I won't kill myself. Mother Nature provides us with such a bounty, I see no reason to eat what we now call livestock. That aside, the way animals are raised for slaughter is abhorrent to me. Why would I want to eat something that's been tortured its entire life, fed GMOs and chemicals. Doesn't sound healthy or interesting to ingest just another form of poison."

She said her cuisine will be different from what's currently on offer. "Also in my spice layering and cooking process, I use a lot of fresh locally grown herbs and spices as well as African spices I have sent to me or pick up when I'm home."

Her advice to persons transitioning from meat to meatless is to make sure they are replacing the proteins and vitamins they get from meat from the foods and herbs they choose. "If someone has health issues, they should also collaborate with their doctor or nutritionist to make sure they are getting their bodies' requirements."

Persons can place their orders as of August by calling Earth & Sea at tel. 526-5072 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . She thanked Pierre from Pineapple Pete for helping her with her booth at the recently held Taste of St. Maarten.
