Deborah Bouts grew Sun Belly Café out of seeds of inspiration from her grandmother and a comment she overheard after a teaching a yoga class.
Her grandmother’s kitchen on the family farm in Ohio was a constant hive of activity and always open, to all comers. No visitor ever left hungry. Deborah was at her grandmother’s elbow, wielding a wooden spoon, any chance she could get.
Years later, Deborah heard one of her yoga students say she felt guilty taking the time to practice because that meant her family would be eating McDonalds that night. Deborah went home and made her some soup so after the next class, those kids would be well-nourished.
Other students were soon placing orders and, just like her grandmother, Deborah took care of them all, going out of her way to accommodate those with allergies and dietary restrictions. Having two children with Type 1 diabetes, one of whom is also celiac, she was always acutely aware of the value of the right food for the individual.
Word got around and over the years, Sun Belly Café met demand as it appeared, growing from her own kitchen, to one not much larger at the back of the yoga studio, and now to a stand-alone building on West Blue Ridge Drive, that offers Greenville’s only fully vegan and gluten free menu.
Deborah’s philosophy in the kitchen is simple, help the ingredients speak for themselves with respect and love for what goes on the plate, and for those who will eat it.
