It’s 9am on a Sunday, and you’re keen to go out for breakfast. A healthy breakfast.
But your local cafe – just like every other cafe on the block – just has your standard breakfast fare on the menu. Eight different variations of bacon/eggs/sausages/hash browns/baked beans, toast with a variety of jams, a bunch of different pastries. Banana bread. Maybe some muesli.
Certainly no superfoods, no wholegrains and no green smoothies in sight.
It seems really odd to me – especially living in Sydney, which is really the leading Australian capital of Healthy Clean-Eating Stand-Up-Paddleboarding people – that there aren’t more cafes and restaurants getting creative, branching out and offering more healthy options on their menus. Fresh, light fare that is tasty and wholesome and isn’t just a pile of bacon covered in hollandaise sauce.
I always have people asking me where to go for healthy meals because I think I have one of those faces that looks like you should ask me things. (Tourists stop me ALL THE TIME to take their photos and just two weeks ago I had to sing the Australian anthem with a random Danish gentleman as part of some kind of scavenger hunt but let’s not go into it.)
Frankly, I have no answers, because I’m not trendy.
However, I decided to crowd-source some opinions and asked our lovely Mamamia Facebook fans about their favourite places to go for a healthy breakfast in their cities.
