Sunny by name and sunny by nature. Greetings from the Sunshine Coast 🙂
We are staying with Keven and Debbie which has been and continues to be wonderful. The way they eat has been truly inspirational and I will take away some really good ideas to put in to practice.
This board of delicious veggies is one of 2 boards that were stir fried to make breakfast. They are very disciplined and have virtually no sugar, not even fruits. So even breakfast is mainly made with vegetables. We had mushrooms, red onions, tomatoes, red pepper, kale, totsoi, bak choi, cabbage, kale, cauliflower and broccoli. There may have been more too. The little red pot is tomato paste and Debbie stirs a tsp in to the veggies when they are cooking which provides a delicate richness. We had breakfast on the sunny verandah; a pile of delicious veggies with an egg. Green tea on the side. We walked from their house to the nearest beach – Dicky Beach. There was a lifeguard on duty. This lifeguard had some different equipment to others we have seen, presumably on account of the strong current you can have. There was only 1 person swimming in the sea – no prizes for guessing who that is. There is a small parade of shops at Dicky Beach and we went in to the cafe for lunch. They serve a lot of fish and you can choose to have it breaded, battered or grilled. I had a grilled fish burger which was really good. Followed by a coffee and half a lemon slice which was delicious. I shared it with Harvey in return for half a chocolate fudge brownie. In the afternoon we went to Mooloolaba with Keven, which was about half an hour North up the coast. The water is very calm at the moment which was disappointing because we wanted to watch some surfing. Mooloolaba was fun though. It is well developed with a good range of shops and lots of bars, restaurants and cafes. We strolled along the beach front. Once again, we were impressed with the range of facilities. This is a free BBQ and picnic area. Even showers are provided! We sat outside Lot 104 and enjoyed a coffee in the sunshine. On the way home we stopped at Currimundi Beach. We timed our visit for sunset. The sunsets here are not as stunning as those on the West coast. But they are still pretty good 🙂 This is Currimundi Lake which is obviously tidal.
