Well, I suppose I predicted the weather wrongly yesterday. Because it was blimmin’ beautiful
First up was The Organic Expo. There were more stalls than I’d expected – never knew that there was so much organic… stuff.. in Australia! Had a blast poking around and sampling all the food. It doesn’t really taste much better/worse than ‘regular’ food, except for the fruit/veg. Fresh organic fruit/veg is just spectacular.. I honestly think it’s worth the extra $$!
The Organic Expo
There was even organic skincare and makeup
Heh, thought this sign was funny.
Australians call chickens “chooks”, by the way.
Delicious organic dips
This rice and chicken was fabulous!! Organic chicken is so much
more tender than normal chicken…
Bowls of popcorn and nuts
Really liked this hot food stall – pastas, curries, etc
Had a shot of organic Wheatgrass juice – apparently really good for you.
Just realised the photo says its $2 for a shot.. but he gave it to me free! Yay!
Ice cream made without cream.. tasted good though!
This just made me go *wow*. Organic fruit & veg is the best
Some goodies that I got – chickpeas, extra virgin olive oil, popcorn,
carrot, apples, miso soup, Dr Hauschka samples
After that, decided it was time for a bit of coffee and shopping.. so headed off to the Aroma Coffee Festival. Was surprised that it was actually a really big event.. tons of people milling around and cups of coffee as far as the eye could see 😉 When I read online that each cup is $1, I figured they were little shots of coffee. Not so! They were decent sized, and so $1 was unbelievably cheap. I bought 2 lattes but can’t remember what stalls I got them at – they tasted about the same anyhow 😛 Too bad they didn’t have flavours, I like my coffee with vanilla or hazelnut syrup! Still delicious though.. and just fantastic to sip a steaming hot coffee in the brilliant sunshine.
They had a Turkish tea house there too, complete with (sexy) dancers!
The famous Rocks Markets
Walked back across the bridge – the view was perfect 🙂
