I finish work this Friday, then I have 6 weeks of holidays! Going to Melbourne for a month, and Fiji for 2 weeks. I can't wait, I've been in the outback for a year and it's really hard being vegan out here. The nearest supermarket is 3 hours away so it's not exactly easy to get fresh, live food. At the most I can eat fresh food for 3 or so days, depending on how often I can drive in to the city. Here's some fooooooood I've enjoyed the past 4 months, at home and in Darwin:
Sometimes I like to eat dinner next to the river, if I can be bothered I sit outside the fence, but we have lots of crocodiles and snajes so it's just less stressful to eat from the school grounds where I work! This is a chickpea burger sandwich and a green smoothie, my staple.
I got this from the vegetarian stall Lucky Cow at the Mindil Beach Market in Darwin. To be honest it was gross! And not actually what I asked for... I found the staff so rude and unhelpful... it's a shame because veggie options in Darwin are few and far between!
Frozen mango and blueberry smoothie! Just made with water... nothing else needed. I have mango trees in my backyard, so for a few months a year I'm the HAPPIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD!
My brother makes the cutest Japanese food! He's moving to Japan in March and I'm visiting in April, I can't wait :D
Strawberries dipped in dairy-free chocolate... yum yum yum
The first thing I do when I drive to Darwin is head to the Rapid Creek market and get a fruit salad and icy lime juice.
Green smoothie! I stick with spinach, bananas and strawberries most of the time. Argh photobucket is annnooyyyinggg meeee, can't figure out why my photo won't flip. Grr.
And randomly. this is what kept me alive on a very long bus ride from Brussels to Barcelona back in July. So refreshing and delicious.
