  • We’re soft opening the gazebo this weekend through Memorial Day! With the addition of our new wall and mural and baby cacti installation, it’s dry even during rainstorms! How magical.

  • If I could eat one meal for the rest of my life this is it. Never gets old. Baked sweet potato, peas, chickpeas, tomatoes, chopped red pepper, a ripe avocado, all on top of a bed of spinach. Packed with protein, carbs and fat for a balanced meal ☺️ Went to work, worked out, came home ready for this meal and then I have to go back to work again for a late afternoon shift. Only thing getting me through is the fact that I have the next 2 days off 🙌🏻 Hope you all have an amazing Saturday and that you’ve enjoyed some delicious plants today 🌱 #buddhabowl #lunch #vegan

  • Vegan pizza was eeeeverywhere in Oslo 🌱🍕☀️ I think I basically turned into a pizza while traveling these last few weeks... ⁣
⁣
Not complaining - 🍕 = LIFE 🙌 - but I’ve been back for 2 days and I’ve already noticed how much better I feel when I eat the way I “normally” do. ⁣
⁣
Which is to say, I eat a whole food plant based diet. Simple meals, eating what I find locally and in season at local markets (when possible) and aiming to get at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day (usually more 😋)⁣
⁣
I allow myself treats when I want them, usually in the form of dark chocolate or a glass of wine. But for the most part I eat wholesome, simple, fresh foods and it makes me feel so good.⁣
⁣
Traveling and exploring new foods is great - such a blessing - but it’s nice to know that actually, the “normal” way I live my life really makes me really happy. Sometimes it takes stepping away from normal to see how special it really is 🌱🍐🍊🍋🥒🥬🌽🥑🥝🍒🍓🍌🥦🥕🥔 ⁣

  • At 10:24 yesterday I was standing in the queue at Woolworths, gleefully fetching the snacks for the week. There was 1kg of frozen cherries there. A scant 24 hours later and they appear to have all disappeared. To quote the immortal words of Homer Simpson “I have three children and no cherries. Why can’t I have no children and three cherries” 😭 Cherry farming sugar daddies hmu, in the meantime I’ll be in the kitchen eating all their lunch snacks out of spite. #parenting #teenagersareassholes #raisingvegetarians #cherryfarming

  • HI! So one time at @ironmantri #imlp I met @wrenxxx - and we got free cases of Red Bull (with Sharon too!) and then we crossed the finish line of a bonkers race that had a hail storm and a bunch of people who don’t know how to ride bikes trying to yuck up the course with their bad bike skills. and now fast forward - I was a guest on his podcast The Mandate on @cinepunx network. We review the movie @booksmart - I stumble through discussing fun facts about the movie and I say “like” entirely way way way too much - but if you want to know about the first time I saw @earthcrisisofficial or if you care to hear what my fave nutrition book is (hint it’s by @brendanbrazier ) OR if you want to hear our review about a fun movie - give this podcast a listen! Also my voice is annoying idk why all of you are friends with me! *link in bio*

Check them out if you’re in the area! Tours are given on weekends and volunteers are needed daily.

  • Simply delicious @thedepotbondi ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I start pretty much every single day with oats! Im really not sure I’ve come across a healthier breakfast. Here’s a few reasons:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1 - they are a great source of prebiotics (Beta Glucan + resistant starch) which feed the bacteria in your colon. This process results in the production of incredibly healthy metabolites such as short chain fatty acids which help regulate blood sugar, provide energy for your colon cells, decrease cholesterol synthesis, power up your immune system, improve overall G.I health and perhaps even directly affect brain health via the gut brain axis. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2- oats are also a great source of insoluble fibre, which unlike probiotics doesn’t feed your bacteria. Instead insoluble fibre helps bulk your stool, remove toxins from the G.I tract and keep you regular! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3- 1 cup of oats contains 8 grams of fibre! By the time you add fruit, nuts and seeds your porridge likely has 12-15 grams of fibre, which is almost 50% of the Recommended Dietary Intake for fibre. In 2019 a series of systematic reviews and meta-analyses was published which showed across all of the data we have, from over 135 million person years, people who eat the most fibre enjoyed 15-30% less risk of premature death and death from cardiovascular disease, along with 15-30% less chance of developing coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, colorectal cancer or having a stroke. Unfortunately 96-97% of Australians and Americans are fibre deficient. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4) Oats are an unrefined grain and as such are jam packed with not only fibre but lots of micronutrients, particularly the minerals iron, selenium, magnesium, and zinc. Soaking oats overnight or cooking them increases the absorption of these minerals 💪🏼 they’re also a good source of protein (1 cup = 9-10g). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5- They taste amazing and offer a nice slow release source of energy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I usually top with banana, berries or rhubarb, chia/hemp/ground flax seeds, walnuts or nut butter and if I’m feeling like a touch of extra sweetness I’ll add some medjool dates or maple syrup. With toppings the protein content of this meal easily goes to 15-20g 💪🏼
