Sydney is my healthy haven. It is the city of dreams where I plan to end up in the near future. The energy is amazing and yet relaxed. Days flow organically with little planning or organisation. Everyday you find yourself surrounded by beautiful open people in idyllic locations. With such a wonderful climate and outdoor lifestyle health is a prominent concern for many sydney siders, here a few hot spots to check out when you are over that way.


I first came across Suveran a few years ago. As a health nut it is the first location to hit up. This restaurant is sugar-, gluten-, dairy- and grain-free, friendly to vegetarians, vegans and even paleos. Owned and run by an amazing man called Pete, you are sure to not only to get a dose of healthy goodness, but also walk away with a whole bucket full of knowledge. My favourite dish is the lamb salad, be sure to get some of the raw chocolate and a fresh young coconut to sip on! 244 Oxford Street Bondi Junction NSW 2022, Australia +61 2 9369 4040

About Life
This is a slightly more conventional health food store/café making delicious smoothies, salads and wraps. Always bustling with people and huge smiles you are sure to feel mentally and physically clear after your experience here. Their breakfast menu is amazing, my favourite is the omelette or almond hot cakes they make.

Love Fish
The most scrumptious fish restaurant in Sydney! All sustainably caught fish and organic veggies. The couple that run this joint are amazing. The fish comes really simply with a whole host of salads, all fresh tasty and nutritious. If its a nice evening get some take away and go sit at the end of the water in Balmain overlooking the harbour, its such a treat! 580 Darling Street  Sydney NSW 2039, Australia +61 2 9818 7777

MuMu Grill
If you are craving a good piece of meat then head straight here. All the meat is grass fed. They recycle all their waste, grow their own herbs and donate part of the bill to a local charity. I met the head chef who is so passionate about nutrition and health. This place oozes love! Try the slow roast pork it is out of this world!! 70-76 Alexander Street  Crows Nest NSW 2065, Australia +61 2 9460 6877

The Boat House
My favourite cafe in the entire world, the magic of being up at palm beach is one thing but to top it off this cafe is abundant in tasty goodness. My signature dish is green eggs and ham, being a fan of Dr Seuss and having a love affair with eggs and pesto this place is my haven. Go for brunch or lunch, it can get busy on the weekends so aim to get there early and do the lighthouse walk after. Governor Phillip Park  Palm Beach NSW 2108, Australia +61 2 9974 3868
