LITTLE LARDER

So when my sister recommended The Little Larder recently I was taken back to stories from my last job where a colleague would Facebook photos of her all day breakfast with lewd tomato sauce messages written on her plate by her friend the waitress. The waitress and the colleague have moved on, but the story remains and makes me laugh.

Even though it was the weekend and busy, we were served promptly and our meals didn’t take too long. My sister ordered pesto scrambled eggs with salmon, so I didn’t photograph it, but I ordered the mushroom polenta with avo and poached eggs and a beetroot, carrot and orange juice.

The poached eggs were a little undercooked in my fussy opinion but the polenta was superb and with the balsamic, cherry tomatoes and hot sauce, was truly interesting and yummy. You’re going to pay New Farm prices here with most hot brekkies over $15 each. We finished with a stroll around New Farm, acting like complete tossers and behaving in a way that only sisters could probably understand. If you and your sister swear a lot and talk about Brisbane gigs, architecture, libraries and boys.

So exactly like you and your sister.

RAW ENERGY

So Ben and I have been to Raw Energy since forever. Ok, maybe not forever, but certainly ever since there has been a branch at Cotton Tree. There are also branches at Mooloolaba, Peregian Beach and Noosaville. We like Cotton Tree on a Sunday morning. This time, I went with my mum on a Monday morning.

Despite the name, Raw Energy doesn’t have a lot of raw products outside of its juices. Until recently, they had almost no vegan food either, but this is starting to change. There was a vege stack that was vegan on the day we went there and they sell some energy balls that are vegan. I’ve had the avo and tomato toast when I was vegan which is really yummy.

Another place that gives you plastic fruit to summon your meal :)

I opted for my “usual” juice: Green With Envy. It’s apple, pear, celery, broccoli, spinach and something else (I’ve forgotten) but the best part is you can’t taste the veggies! Mum had a Tropical Twist, which is orange, pineapple and ginger. I also ordered the lentil and three cheese triangle and two chialicious balls to take away for later.

These are my new favourite thing. I'm so glad to choc ones were out so that I tried these instead.

This place can get hectic on the weekend and service can become slow, but today was a Monday and things were speedy. We sat at the communal table and read “Vogue” while we waited.

My triangle was delicious. The lentils had a tasty tomatoey sauce they were cooked in and although I couldn’t name the “three cheeses”, I really enjoyed the meal and the wee bit of salad on the side. Our juices were great- they always are. There’s a huge juice and smoothie list to stare at while you order or wait.

Overall, this meal was delicious and boosted our spirits. We went and browsed the shops and then sat in the shade behind the public pool overlooking the Maroochy River mouth. Very relaxing.

Be patient on weekends and you’ll be rewarded!

Need this.

This might be a phone filter, but this is how I actually perceived the world around me this morning until I had a fresh juice, poached eggs and haloumi and a B vitamin. Better now.

JUICE!

Love it.

At the moment, I’m drinking about 1/2 a litre of this stuff each day.

Enjoying beetroot, orange, lemon, carrot and apple.

Despite, when disassembled, looking like something from an Austen Power’s film (one receipt for a Swedish Penis Enlarger…), I love my juicer. It also makes pasta, ice cream and nut butter and is the slow, but good kind of juicer that keeps as much of the goodness in tact as possible.

Again: Love it.

I usually try to put something green in my juices. It’s amazing how you don’t taste celery, spinach, broccoli or kale when it’s whizzed up with apple or orange juice. I also do a sneaky and juice my carrots first, so in the fiber/ cast offs container, I get grated carrot which I then stick into salads. I did that yesterday with some of the beetroot as well. You can always add a couple of spoons of juice back into it if you want the extra liquid.

Colour = healthy!

 

No, not a Swedish penis enlarger

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perfect with poached eggs or on its own.

 

Easy to clean up

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rawsome.
