Sydney is crazy busy! Started my day at 5.30am this morning and didn’t walk back in the door until 7.30pm this evening. Needless to say as I’m ‘on the road’ there was absolutely no planning at all. Having said that, I was much too busy to even think about food. At least until my mind realised that I was starving (well, I call it starving, but it’s really just an empty stomach feeling).
I started with the usual coffee, which managed to sustain me until about 11.30am. Driving around I thought I’d better stop and try and get some body fuel. First stop – Broadway Shopping Centre. Food everywhere here in Sydney, coffee shops, yoghurt shops, kebab shops, cake shops, anything you can think of there’s probably a shop for it in Sydney. After scouring the food court and numerous food outlets in Broadway, I settled for a soup from Sumo Salad. Pretty good, not to expensive, and team it with a bottle of water and it’s a pretty good meal (or snack for the larger eaters amongst us). Mmmm feeling good, happy with my choices. More running around and before I know it, it’s already 2pm, and guess what? Yup, I’m hungry again. No I didn’t want to eat too much because I’m planning on an early dinner tonight, and early to bed, so I need to hang out for as long as I can. Well I made it for about 15 minutes, and that was it! Food, I need food!! I pulled up out front of a frozen yoghurt store – had a delicious low-fat yoghurt with fresh berries made into a thick smoothie. Pretty good, I found myself quite happy with that.
Figured I’d better do a supermarket visit so I could stock up on some essentials. Friends recommended “About Life” in Rozelle. Well this place is amazing! They stock a huge array of organic, wholesome, nutritious food. It’s like a ‘healthy supermarket’. I loved it! So I’ve come home with a heap of stuff – dip, licorice, chocolate, veggie sticks, aromatherapy, kombucha, herbal teas, lotions and potions – this is pure bliss. I feel like I’ve died and gone to food heaven.
Well managed to get through the day without too many hiccups. Ready to go through it all again tomorrow. Oh, I don’t know how that licorice packet became empty – maybe I won’t restock that one tomorrow!!
