Out there: The Boathouse – Balmoral Beach

Posted on

Every now and then a new type of blog post will appear around here: this time is Out there, and it will be about restaurants reviews – where you can find great and tasty real food.

As a start, I’ve decided to take Lu with me to have a delicious breakfast at The Boathouse in Balmoral Beach, Sydney.

In case you are around Balmoral Beach and need something to fill your belly, The Boathouse brings you not only an outstanding view, but also very nice and healthy options to eat.

There are many different options for breakfast. We’ve decided to go with something dairy free to add more variety to our lives and also because their coconut yogurt is out of this world :D. Check this out:

  • Flat white as always – not dairy free, but perfect as it should be.
  • Market fruit plate with an extra of coconut and chia yogurt – full of fresh and yummy fruits + that creamy coconut yogurt with blueberries and chia, a very good dairy and wheat free option.
  • Boathouse muesli with coconut yogurt and coconut milk – not grain free, but in case you can afford it once in a while, this is a very good option. Musli was sweet enough and crunchy to perfection.

Of course, after all this fruit feast, take an extra time to walk around the shore and enjoy Balmoral Beach. Ah! Don’t forget to bring your swimmers for some great sea bathing afterwards!

My favourites: Top 5 must watch food documentaries

Posted on

1. Cooked – Michael Pollan

In 4 outstanding episodes, Michael Pollan takes us back to the origins of food.

Exploring the four natural elements (fire, water, air, and earth), Michael Pollan shows how cooking transforms food and shapes our lives. It’s magical how this series documentary presents the evolution of what food means to us in different cultures and how it has the power to connect us. It also highlights that we need to go back to the kitchen, connect with the ingredients and don’t let the cooking techniques and our cultural traditions to be taken by the industry. Let’s cook, people!

2. That sugar film – Damon Gameau

The Australian actor Damon Gameau, who had been living eating a healthy diet and consuming only real food (which includes no refined sugar), does an experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body. So, for this experiment, he starts eating only low fat food. That’s right, those ones that most of the population believes as “healthy” – very easy to find on supermarket shelves, but not necessarily good in the long run.

3. The Diet Myth – Tim Spector

In the documentary The Diet Myth, Prof Spector challenges everything we know about weight loss by looking at the link between diet, microbes, and weight. According to his researches, many people view bacteria as an enemy without realising that some are actually crucial for a healthy gut and immune system. So, after watching this documentary, please go to the kitchen and make awesome real food to feed all the good bacterias in your gut. 😀

4. Food Matters

You are what you eat. With this words, Food Matters documentary opened my mind in a way that changed my diet and lifestyle since then. Nowadays we have medications for everything, but think for a second: what if instead of a medicine you could have a healthy diet, based on real food. Do you think your body would behave the same? More, do you believe your body would need all this medications out there? Food Matters brings out the best of this forgotten knowledge we had on food and how our views on illness and wellness have changed over the centuries.

5. Way beyond weight (Muito além do peso)

Way Beyond Weight is a free Brazilian documentary that you can watch in the video above (with English subtitles). The documentary seeks to answer why levels of childhood obesity are outstandingly high, especially in Brazil. Every responsible parent out there should feel obligated to watch this documentary and understand what are the consequences of an unhealthy and unbalanced diet to their children.
