We cannot get enough of Emma Sutherland, nutritionist, author and all-round successful mum to daughter Sophia (who inspired her second book Sophia Eats, A Parents Guide to Toddler Health and Vitality).
Dedicated to helping women get their mojo back, we recently learnt of Emma’s spokesperson role for O Superfood, one of the most impressive smoothie bars Sydney has to offer.
Located on Bondi Junction’s most popular health street, Oxford St, the vibrant café is passionate about bringing you nutrient rich smoothies, juices and salads that are packed with the best superfoods sourced locally and from around the globe.
For all of you health nuts out there, here are some of her fun and healthy places for you to try.
This is my favourite smoothie bar in Sydney. It was founded by chef, Mick Gay who is also responsible for O Organic in Surry Hills. He launched O Organic 15 years ago back before it was a trend, needless to say he is pretty ahead of the game when it comes to heavy eating.
My favourite smoothie at the moment is the ‘Enerdriver’ with blueberries, broccoli, banana, spinach, spirulina, goji, yerba mate tea and vegan protein powder. Got to love a smoothie that covers pretty much all of your nutritional bases in one go.
Sadhana Kitchen is in Enmore (and now Bondi) and it is an ethical restaurant that believe that what we put in our bodies every day significantly affects both our body and the environment; therefore they only source produce from local growers and their own organic garden.
The food is raw, vegan and organic. If you are looking for something fun but healthy to do on a Friday night they also have a 7-course degustation each week.
Try the Sadhana Super Bowl with kale, home made sauerkraut, cherry tomato, cucumber and pesto noodles, brazil nut chedder and smokes paprika humus.
The Plant Gallery
This is an incredible new vegan restaurant that has just opened up in Bondi. They serve food that looks and tastes amazing, but also happens to be vegan, raw, gluten free and free of refined sugars.
As a unique point of difference, all food is measured on the PH scale which essentially shows how acidic or alkali that food is. This is important because every time there is an imbalance in your blood’s PH levels, your lungs, kidneys and liver have to work harder to fix it. Their menu is essentially designed to give you more energy and have you feeling your best.
Earth to Table
They offer healthy versions of all of your favourite foods so expect to see zucchini pasta, pizza with almond bases, raw cheesecakes and cashew cheese replacing actual cheese.
They do a really nice matcha or turmeric latte, a great acai bowl and their spirulina mint bliss balls are really nice.
The Wholemeal Café is on Flinders Street in Darlinghurst and they make some very fun healthy meals that almost tastes to good to be healthy. Cheese Paleo Bread anyone?
Try their Protein plate or almond meal pancake stack for breakfast, and of course the protein bread!
