FALAFELS

I haven’t had many falafels in my time as they are usually full of onion, garlic and far too many chickpeas for my stomach to handle. When I have, I love the taste and I love the option of a vegetarian lunch to add to the rotation so I tweaked the traditional recipe a little! […]

TABBOULEH

Is there anything more enticing that a big bowl of fresh herbs and crunchy veg? Didn’t think so. One of my summer staples that may not have many ingredients but it sure packs a flavour punch! Team it with my falafels, eat it on its own or add to your favourite wrap. INGREDIENTS 1/3 Cup […]

TZATZIKI

Store bought dips can be difficult to navigate for us with fructose malabsorption so I always opt to make my own. That way I don’t have to miss out and I find this tzatziki recipe far more tasty and fresh anyway! A few great, simple ingredients go a long way. INGREDIENTS 1 Cup of Natural […]

AMSTERDAM

Kicked off the first day in Europe with some serious jet lag and a blaring body-clock alarm, waking me up at 5am. Considering we couldn’t sleep even if we wanted to, we decided to put on our walking shoes and make the most of our short time in Amsterdam. Exploring at that time of day […]

MISS MARGARITA

Opposite the busy Beach Hotel, this has to be one of the best Mexican restaurants I have eaten at. Beautiful authentic artwork and decor, accompanied with a vibrant and flavoursome menu it was very easy to wander up from the beach and settle in for the afternoon. From lunch time each day this spot is […]

LIGHT YEARS

Super cool Vietnamese restaurant we stumbled across. The killer RnB playlist is what pulled us in and sitting on the little pink patio styled with lots of greenery and hanging plants set the tone for a fun evening. Street style food and a refreshing asian twist on the cocktail list with flavours such as lychee, […]

BAYLEAF CAFE

I’m going to say it, this spot topped our Byron cafe list! We were welcomed with a big smile from staff and a cute, old local dog wandering around cafe…the perfect start to the day. The warm weather meant the outdoor tables were consistently full so we had to go communal and get cosy with […]

BYRON FRESH CAFE

Byron Fresh is another cafe right in the heart of Jonson Street. It has a cool double level set up with windows that open onto the street making it a casual spot to pop in on your way down to the water for a drink or a meal. Menu options are all super healthy with […]

FRANK’S

Tucked away in the suburbs, this has to be one of my favourite little coffee spots. You can count on some friendly banter from the staff and you never have to wait long to get a table. The food is consistently good and the coffee is even better, making it my go-to brunch place with […]

GREEK LAMB WRAPS

After visiting Greece two years ago, my love affair with this country and it’s amazing food begun! I was reminiscing the other day and decided to make a youknowchlo version of the classic Greek lamb wrap. Who cares about garlic and onion, you can still pack so much flavour into Greek food with herbs, fresh […]

ZESTY OREGANO DRESSING

This is my absolute go-to dressing. Super easy, super tangy and works with pretty much any salad combination! You can make it in a big batch and pop it in a jar in the fridge or you can get yourself some mini dressing containers and portion it out per serve for when you’re racing out […]

BANG BANG RC

After a freezing day out in the elements watching the local footy finals, a good happy hour and some snacks were in order! We wandered into Bang bang with hot chips on our minds but the tasty menu options stretched way beyond that. Its interior has a tropical vibe with indoor plants and palm leaf […]

PORT OF CALL

Created by the same team as popular cafes “Left field” and “Plain sailing” there was plenty of hype about this new kid on the block. With wait lists of at least 20 mins at any given time on a busy weekend, my first visit was a highly anticipated one.  There is a lot jammed into […]

CARROT & PUMPKIN SOUP

I have recently found out that I have SIBO! After reading the very restricted and uninspiring diet plan, I was determined to come up with some tasty recipes so I can still enjoy food while letting my gut heal. This soup is the first instalment of many more recipes for my SIBO fam to keep […]
