FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Possibly the best part of living on the Gold Coast is experiencing all the delicious meals scattered along the coastline – classic pub feeds from the surf club, delectable brunches on the water’s edge, and a scoop (or two) of gelato every so often, but all this gluttony can leave you feeling a little ﬂat. The solution? Oracle Boulevard and our newest foodie destinations; Banana
Blossom, Oakberry Acai, and Mr Potato. Let’s chat about the fan-favourite menu items that just so happen to be equally as delicious as they are healthy.
Crispy, savoury, and spicy – Banana Blossom is everything you could ask for in a balanced meal. Their salads, rice bowls, and rice paper rolls are made with a mouth-watering combination of Asian-inspired ﬂavours and fresh Australian ingredients that are ideal for a lunch out. You also can’t miss out on trying their famous Tokyo Classic salad – choose from chicken or tofu, and enjoy a mix of soba noodles, cherry tomato, avocado, white sesame sweet soy dressing, premium cress mix, Chinese cabbage, mint, coriander, and red onion. Head to their website for a full rundown of the nutritional information of the dish.
For those who don’t know, Oakberry Acai is the number one acai brand in the world and rightfully so! Oakberry is all about making their organic acai bowls part of a healthy lifestyle of millions for people across the globe. The best part? There’s no need to travel far to experience one of their iconic Acai bowls, because Oakberry has recently opened on Oracle Boulevard! We recommend opting for their classic bowl and choosing your desired toppings. You’ll be pleased to hear that their acai is all-natural, rich in antioxidants, vegan, cholesterol free, free from trans fats, preservatives, colourants, and no high-fructose corn syrup.
Last but not least, Mr Potato – home to fresh, fast, and healthy loaded potatoes! You might be wondering how a potato is so healthy? Well, Mr Potato has created a modern spin on your traditional baked potato. Their entire menu is 100% gluten-free, they use low-carb white potatoes that have 25% fewer carbs than your average potato, and their entire range of ingredients is sourced locally within Australia, where possible! You have to try their Mash Made in Heaven loaded potato – with your choice of two proteins, kale, peas, corn, red onion, low-fat feta, and truﬄe mayo.
