Clean Eating Detox

Hi Everyone,

I have successfully finished week two of my clean eating detox. (Thankfully) I think this is the longest I have gone without having to binge due to high temptations for chocolate, coke or chips.  I think I am doing well but obviously there is always room for improvement.

Thanks to my brother who is very health conscious for motivating and some what threatening my sister and I to change our eating habits. Now it is time to put everything that I’ve read and heard about clean eating to practice. There is a hundred and one different dieting techniques out there. By no means am I a dietician so I am in no position to give advice on much. Not only from a professional perspective but also need to see if what I am doing is going to work.

Anyways, on Saturday I just felt like a refreshing, filling but healthy lunch. I was working in Port Melbourne so I started researching local restaurants and cafes that would statisfy my craving. And boy oh boy did I hit the jackpot. I found amazing places that offered healthy options. My all time favourite thing to eat on all occasions would be salad.

Every. single. type. of. salad.

I can probably eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As you may know, I did a mini series of salad recipes on my blog. This is where I shared 5 different salad recipes over 5 days. They were easy, refreshing and filling. I will provide the links to all my Heathy Eating post below, please feel free to take a look at them.

Okay back to talking about the amazing salads I had on Saturday. Luckily I took a picture that I can share. So I got a mix of two, first one was with broccoli and peanuts; the other was shredded veggies like cabbage, beetroot, carrot and heaps more.

There was a variety of different options like; vegan, vegetarian and gluten free. (Winning!)

Queen Victoria Night Market – Photos and More

Hi everyone!

On Wednesday I planned to go to Queen Victoria Market with my friend for the annual ‘Night Market’. So, if you are not from Melbourne or Australia you may be asking ‘What on earth is that?’. Well, Queen Victoria Market also known as Queen Vic or Vic Market is a major landmark and tourist attraction in Melbourne, Australia. It is the largest(7 hectares) open air market in the Southern Hemisphere.

Every summer there is a Night Market held on Wednesday nights from 5 pm to 10 pm. The market “offers a unique platform for emerging designers, artists, musicians and foodies to showcase their talent at one of Melbourne’s favourite summer events.”

It is a great place to meet and hang out with your family and friends, enjoy the variety of food offered and appreciate the lovely atmosphere. There is a variety of different things to offer at this amazing event. There are numerous types of street foods from distinct cuisines such as Italian, Turkish, Danish, Korean and much much more. There are unique pieces of clothing, vintage items and handmade jewellery. Likewise there are exclusive artwork, beautifully crafted furniture, candles and makeup.  My short description will not do justice to the things offered at the market.

I just wanted to offer a few tips and tricks to anyone who will attend this event or something similar.

– Make sure you wear comfortable shoes as there is quite a bit of walking.

– Take CASH! This is an very important thing as majority of the places do not offer card access and if there is an ATM there is definitely going to be a massive line.

– Make sure you are mentally and physically prepared to be pushed and surrounded by heaps of people. I was not feeling well so I did not have the best time  as I was overwhelmed and also had an anxiety attack.

– If you are going to carry a bag, make sure it is not too heavy or too big.

These are some of the photos that I captured from the night. Overall I enjoyed myself with the delicious food and company!

This week was so busy yet so slow at the same time. I was not feeling extremely inspired to post anything on my blog at all.  I have so many ideas but the process of actually going ahead with them was quite daunting for some reason. I guess it was due to the amount of things I had to do especially with my course, as it is the last couple of weeks there are still a few outstanding assessments I need to complete. Thank you to my lovely friend Sarah, who gave me the belief and aspiration to blog this week. Her kind words gave me an idea for this weeks blog post. She mentioned that she loves reading reviews and seeing photos of places that people have visited. And I did exactly that!

There is a cute and elegant little cafe by the name of By Josephine, click here to visit the website. By Josephine is located at 365 Sydney Road in downtown Brunswick. The other day I was thinking about the delicious and scrumptious salted caramel macaron I had when I first visited this cafe during 2009. They have a wide variety of French delights and delicacies that are pleasing to the eye as they are delicious to the tongue. The bubbly and kind staff members offer amazing customer service which always leads to a positive experience. Small things like the decorations, arrangement of the cafe and the numerous pot plants are inviting to the eye and definitely draws the attention of the customer. The location of this cafe is in the busy part of Brunswick and has a splendid atmosphere. The employee was kind enough to allow me take photos inside this wonderful cafe and here they are: DSC_3813DSC_3817DSC_3814DSC_3797DSC_3812DSC_3811DSC_3800DSC_3803DSC_3793DSC_3787DSC_3788DSC_3804DSC_3801DSC_3767DSC_3764DSC_3774DSC_3763DSC_3778DSC_3786DSC_3796DSC_3806DSC_3805DSC_3790DSC_3792DSC_3808DSC_3807DSC_3809DSC_3779DSC_3798DSC_3771DSC_3772
