It’s mid morning Monday, you’re at work & already you’re thinking about lunch. You had a super busy weekend & didn’t make time to shop or food prep for the week… what do you do. Check out our TOP 5 PLACES TO GRAB A MEAL ON THE GO?
You left home earlier in the day to do a few errands thinking you’d be home in time for your next meal. The day has gotten away from you & it’s time to eat… where do you go?
You’re out shopping, didn’t bring any prepared meals or snacks to eat whilst you’re out & the smell of the food court has you hungry! What are your options?
The answer to theses questions can be found in my Top 5 Places to grab a meal on the go on the Gold Coast!
The Shack Super Food Café, Nobbys Beach
With a kitchen free of refined and processed grains, flours & sugars. The Shack offers take away meals & low sugar super food green smoothies. According to their website they will soon also offer a meal delivery service, which will be awesome.
Switch To Superfood, Available across all Flannery’s & World Gyms on the Gold Coast
Stocked in the fridges at all the above places these meals are very tasty + Gluten Free, Dairy Free and ingredients are based on Superfoods. Super easy to grab on the way past in your local area. If you shop at Flannery’s or train at world gym just grab a few next time your in. See more stockist
Nourish Café at Lorna Jane, Pacific Fair & Coolangatta
A clean eating haven in the middle of a shopping centre. The Nourish Café has a great menu inspired by Lorna’s Clean & Simple and Nourish Cookbooks. They stock a great supply of salads & refined sugar free raw treats (very much a sometimes food) which are a great option if you’re considering hitting the food court.
Performance Eating, Available at Uber Shape, Ashy Bines Transformation Centre & Mega Cheer.
Restocked every Monday, Uber Shape has a fridge full of meals from Performance Eating to grab & go. Driven by a passion for health & deliciousness, the boys from Performance Eating keep things simple & functional to fuel our bodies as best as possible which is why we love them at Uber Shape.
Youfoodz at IGA Supermarkets, Robina, Mermaid Waters, Mudgeeraba & Tugun Beach
Many local IGA supermarkets now stock the Youfoodz range. These can be a great option for a ready made meal rather than traditional take away. They have some super clean options & the food quality is great. Be sure your selection is aligned with your body composition goals.
Whilst these are my top five places to grab ready made meals. Most cafes will also provide a take away option even if you order off the menu – just ask! This opens many more options of clean eating cafes such as BKST at Nobby’s Beach & green breaky bowls from Commune. (just to mention two of my favourites) if you’ve got a little more time to wait for them to prepare it.
