I thought I would share another What I Eat In A Day post whilst travelling throughout Queensland and Northern NSW. On the 6th October, I went on a road-trip with my Mum from the Gold Coast to Crystal Castle (see Crystal Castle – Photo Diary) and then down to Byron Bay. All of the food I ate was 100% vegan and healthy. I hope you enjoy!
We stayed at the Royal Palms in Coolangatta. It was a beautiful apartment right on the beach. I loved falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing and waking up with an ocean view. That particular morning, I ate 1 cup of oats mixed with a splash of Bonsoy, blueberries and cinnamon on top. Delicious and filling. Every other morning, we ate acai bowls from a cafe down the road. I could seriously live off them!
For lunch, we ate at the Crystal Castle restaurant overlooking the beautiful, lush trees. I ordered the Gado Gado made vegan which contained lots of fresh veggies, marinated tofu, bean sprouts and a yummy peanut satay sauce. This was so good! A big thanks to my friend Jade for recommending it.
AFTERNOON HOT BEVERAGE
In the afternoon, we made our way to Byron Bay. It is such a quirky, ‘surfy’ town full of vegan restaurants and new-age stores. After some shopping, we stopped at Combi, a cafe with lots of plant-based options for a hot drink. I ordered the Turmeric Latte which was made with cashew milk, turmeric, black pepper and coconut nectar. Super tasty.
For dinner, we ate at The Beet, a 100% plant-based restaurant. I ordered the delicious GF Beet Burger that came with sweet-potato chips and vegan aioli. The patty itself was made from beetroot, quinoa and soy. It was topped with lettuce, sauerkraut, roasted pumpkin and tomato relish. Insanely good! Mum ate all my chips.
Thank you so much for reading. If you have any questions please leave them down below. Travelling whilst vegan is so easy. There are always tasty, healthy options no matter where you go. If you like these posts and want more, please let me know and I’ll continue to make them.
Peace & Love xoxo
I love gado gado! It was a dish my friends loved a lot and we shared that dish a lot when I lived in Singapore. The burger and sweet potato chips look soooo good! Haha, your mum must have loved the chips. If I was there she could have had my share too 😀
All of the food was so tasty and delicious! 🙂 I would love to visit Singapore again as an adult (I’ve only been as a child) and explore what vegan foods they have on offer. Hope you and Chewy are well my friend xoxo
And now I’m hungry 😉
Haha that was my aim!
Lol. Well, good thing its dinner time here and I have some food. Not gado gado tho, alas 😉
Whereabouts in the world are you?
Berkeley, California. Funnily enough I got an email today advertising cheap direct flights from SFO to NZ 😉
Oh wow! I have never been to NZ despite living only 3 hours away. My husband and I visited California and San Fran in 2014. It was really fun!
I want to visit both NZ (lotr territory!) and Australia but haven’t been to either yet. Want to see some of GB reef …
The GB is amazing! See it while you still can 🙁
I know – I feel sad about it and want to see it.
Ooh that tumeric latte 😍
It was so delicious!
