Many of us have a thing for delicious food, but finding food that is both delicious and healthy is not easy. While eating tasty food feels nice, an ever-thickening fat layer on the body does no one any favours. So in this piece, we thought we’ll give you some ideas of eating food that both your tongue and stomach will love.
If you’re a foodie, there’s no place quite like Australia. From coast to coast, the country teems with delicious foods, some healthy, some not. For those of you who watch what you eat (and why shouldn’t you?), there are many delicacies and dishes in Australia that are out of the mainstream that you simply must try. Here is a list of six healthiest options to tickle your taste buds without expanding your waistline.
1. Pressed Juices
Pressed Juices is a fresh juice brand that you will find all over Australia. The menu here is categorised into five parts: green, zest, zing, earth and anti-ox. There are also ‘cleansing’ options like basic, advanced or master to give you just the right amount of detoxification and your cells the right amount of hydration and nourishment. They contain no preservatives or additives, and are not pasteurised.
What’s more, they’re also delicious!
2. Pana Chocolate
Currently present just in Melbourne and Sydney but rapidly growing with a cult-like following, Pana Chocolate offers you the best of both worlds: a mind-altering chocolate experience along with a rich fix of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. You have many flavours to choose from – Coconut, Fig, Sour Cherry and Vanilla, for example – and each one takes you to a different world. The cafe also carries raw cakes that look like art. What’s not to love?
3. Orchard St.
This started life as a well-being company with a passion for sharing experiences of health and wellness. Now it has become more of a cafe with a wellness spirit, where it offers an abundance of pressed juices, smoothies, nut milks, herbal elixirs and beautiful other raw foods. Their juices are crafted with such care that one feels bad about having to drink them. The interiors are beautifully decorated, and there is a certain wholeness about the whole experience at Orchard St. They’re currently Sydney’s Bondi and Bronte.
4. The Farm
At the time of writing, The Farm is only a few months old, and it is located at Potts Point in Sydney. The ambience inside The Farm is beautiful with just the right amount of light and space, and it has a lounge-like air to it which snaps you in place for hours at a time. Once you get in, you don’t feel like leaving. All staff employed here are nutritionists or nutritionists-in-training, so you will know for certain that you’re in good hands. All offerings are hormone and chemical free.
5. Nourish’d Kitchen
This eatery is new to Adelaide’s food scene, but it has quickly attracted a loyal customer base owing to its carefully designed interiors. You will see mint green tiles, brass cutlery, marble statements and a charcoal honeycomb counter. Every flavour that you find on the menu is also spot on, and it’s hard to find an item that is not healthy or delicious. (Many are both). Make sure that you try the dukkah eggs and coconut granola pots when you go there. Simply divine.
6. Naked Treaties
If you’re in Byron Bay, you probably already know of Naked Treaties. It is the number one destination for all health-conscious visitors and locals with a discerning tongue. Here you will find colourful juices, beautiful raw treats and a bunch of nutrient-rich superfoods, all served in a serene setting spilling over with good karma. Naked Treaties foods are also available all over Australia in various outlets.
