The other day, Ant and I went out to breakfast to celebrate his cousin Tenille’s birthday.
The restaurant she picked was about a 15 minute walk from our house, so we set off on foot after NROLFW workout B.
It’s funny; much of the time, Australia feels so much like the U.S. And then, you realize that where you’d normally see pigeons, you see…
Aren’t they gorgeous? Just sitting on the side of the road.
We got to the restaurant and saw most of Anthony’s ginormous family.
This was my first time eating out on the candida diet, and I was actually really nervous. Particularly because it was breakfast – how often do you hear of a breakfast dish that has no potatoes, no grain, no fruit, and no dairy? Yeah, that’s what I thought. I admit, I almost thought about not going – I didn’t want to be tempted, and I didn’t think it was a particularly allergen-friendly restaurant. However, I bucked up, went, and had a great time.
I love getting to see Anthony’s family. Tenille’s brother, Trent, flew down from Melbourne to surprise her with his gorgeous daughter, Lucia. Lucia is AWESOME – she laughs with her full belly, and is just hilarious. Just like her dad.
In Australia, they make “babyccino’s” – steamed milk with foam and cocoa powder. How cute is that?
For breakfast, I had an omelette with chicken and shallots (aka scallions). It was served on top of bread even though I asked for it not to be, but besides that, its as actually really delicious, if in a slightly greasy-spoon kind of way.
We had a really great time, and it was reassuring to realize that I can always find something delicious and Candida friendly to eat.
