Let’s Talk About Charlie’s

Out and About

My favourite place to go at the moment is without a doubt Charlie’s Fruit Market in Everton Park. Charlie’s is not just any old fruit market, it is home to not only a whole bunch of fresh and organic fruit and vegetables, it also houses Charlie’s Superfood Vegan Bar, hallelujah! Why do I love Charlie’s so much you ask? Just take a look at this baby… and my dog Tedi he’s good looking too.

This was the Superfood Acai Bowl jam packed and stacked with all kinds of fruit, coconut and seedy clusters. This was my first taste of the Charlie’s goodness and I was converted.

Since I went there about 2 weeks ago I have not been able to stop thinking about going back and trying something else. Whenever I go anywhere I think to myself oh I should go to Charlie’s on the way, even if it’s 5 minute drive to a friend’s house.

At this point whenever I begin to become this obsessed with a food, I think to myself ‘perhaps I should stop, this can’t be healthy’ but that’s the thing about Charlie’s, it is healthy. All of their ingredients are organic, vegan and dairy free with enormous amounts of nutrients and way more than your two and five serves of fruit or veg a day giving you lots of energy and general happiness at how good it tastes.

After many days of heavy superfood craving, I finally made it back and got a Green Machine smoothie and good lord it was superb. With kale, mango, coconut milk, coconut, mint and an extra banana added by me, this smoothie was fabulous and made me feel healthy and satisfied. My dear friend, Grace had the Choc Bananarama and said it was 10 out 10 for sure.

All the ingredients are good quality so the prices are reasonable if you ask me but could be considered a bit heavy. They also have a range of raw sweets and treats with vegan, dairy free, gluten free and paleo options available as well.

Charlie’s Fruit Market is like my little pocket of health heaven in Everton Park. Acai bowls, smoothies, raw treats and juices. Hallellujah!

Next up for me from Charlie’s is the Mango Bowl. I’ll let you know how it goes. I’m pretty sure these guys can’t really get it wrong though.

The day I decided I would throw some berries and coconut on my muesli with some milk was transcendent.  A big word for such a simple brekkie I know, but this is just one of those things that tickle my taste buds in a way that I will just never get sick of. There have been too many times where I have grown tired of having corn flakes and honey or Vegemite and butter on toast day after day as much as I love those classics. With this vamped up cereal though, too much of a good thing just isn’t possible when even the smallest changes can make it into a whole new breakfast every day with every bite.

I can try new muesli or switch them around with granola if I feel like it. Carman’s, Table of Plenty, Lowan, Uncle Toby’s, Hubbard’s, Jordan’s, Five:AM. I’ve tried them all. All are equally delicious and deliver just the right amount of satisfaction you want for your breakfast on any old normal day.

I’ll switch my toppings around too when I’m down for it. Add some banana or almonds for an extra kick of energy on a big day or mango in the summer when they are oh so juicy and fine. I always keep the blueberries though. You can never go wrong with blueberries fresh or frozen (unless they’re from good old Nanna’s 😮 ).

I know what you’re thinking, ‘this girl must just really, really love muesli with some random stuff thrown on top’ and I do, oh man, I do. But starting your day with something that satisfies, makes you feel good, is quick and easy to make and tastes delicious not your ultimate breakfast goal?  Well that’s mine and this little bowl of deliciousness ticks every box, every day. Get on it.
