1. Dolce Terra – 5-7 Raglan Street, Manly
This salad and smoothie bar in the heart of Manly is one of my favourite places for breakfast, snacks, lunch and everything in between! There is such a variety of fresh vegetables and fruit available, with warm and cold options, as well as coffees, smoothies and juices.
Every day is different, but the chefs keep it interesting and always manage to mix it up with superfoods in their salads and soups. Great value, great food!
2. InBalance menu at any Novotel
I love the feeling of a home away from home that Novotel give me. I have everything I need from gym space, pool sessions for training and recovery and great space in room to stretch, train and relax.
It’s an honour to be the ambassador for the Novotel InBalance program, encouraging guests to have a great stay and look after themselves so they can feel refreshed, healthy and energised. The Novotel team and I are constantly bringing out new additions to the program.
My personal favourite is working on the healthy choice menu items with the chefs. It’s amazing coming home after a big training session or long day in the office to epic food. I love the grilled salmon and watermelon dish at the moment. Tasty and refreshing!
3. Boathouse Shelly Beach – 1 Marine Parade, Manly
My business is based on the northern beaches of Sydney, so some of my favourite places to eat are (luckily!) right by the ocean. The Boathouse at Shelly
is the perfect combination of seaside eatery, relaxed vibes and amazing, healthy food. The summer salad has sweet potato, kale, quinoa (all the good stuff) with, my favourite – pomegranate seeds and smoked salmon.
4. Grounds of Alexandria – Building 7A, 2 Huntley Street, Alexandria
Whenever I venture into Sydney, The Grounds of Alexandria
is a special treat. First off, they have several venues within the grounds to suit everyone’s eating preferences. Second, the petting zoo and miniature farm has its very own ‘Kevin Bacon’ the pig, and it makes for great entertainment with the kids (and the adults too!). Try the Grilled Mooloolaba swordfish; it comes with the most delicious mushroom and bonito broth, with baby leaks and turnips. Yum!
