Elixiba

Elixiba has a few branches on the Australian east coast and the food was insanely delicious and well-presented. Featured here are two desserts that mum and I shared! Their service was so good, and we could eat everything on the menu. I always find it difficult to decide what to eat when I can eat…

Little Bird at Auckland Airport

Normally I can only have Burger King fries for dinner at Auckland Airport but they have just introduced some Little Bird items at their new cafe! You’ll find this after security at the gates lounge. It is around $16 but it comes with a pottle of dressing. It tastes amazing and you feel really good…

Scandinavian fries

It probably seems unnecessary to do a post about fries. It’s the staple for all gluten free vegans at restaurants. “I’ll get the chips and side salad thanks”. Hey at least it’s cheap. BUT I couldn’t leave out my favourite meal in Reykjavik – the satay sauce with fries! We loved it so much we…

A seaside picnic

One of the best ways to enjoy GFV food is by taking it to a picnic, laying down a rug, laying out some cutlery and plates and digging in as the sun sets. We went north to Puriri Bay in New Zealand to sit by the sea and do just that. Here’s our picnic list:…

Wise Cicada

Wise Cicada in Newmarket, Auckland, New Zealand is really great for GFVs. Loads of options and yet I found one I love so much that I haven’t tried any others! I go for the creamy mushrooms on toast. It comes with a side of broccoli and vinaigrette. The smoothies are approx $20 so I haven’t…

Deluxe breakfast bagel

Being gluten free vegan doesn’t mean you have to miss out at breakfast – it means you can have the most epic breakfast of all. Be the envy of your friends! First, slice and toast your gf bagel (make sure it doesn’t contain eggs) Once hot, add dairy free butter like Nuttelex Add some gfv…

Chocolate + coconut macaroons

We just discovered this new brand from Kumeu, New Zealand called Hello Raw. They product this chocolate and coconut macaroon product which reminds me of the ones from Little Bird in Ponsonby. One of these is a great way to round out a meal when you just need that little sweet morsel after the savoury…

Ginger + banana cake

Mum just keeps outdoing herself and last night was a ginger and banana cake. She used a free-from banana cake mix. These are great because they mix rice flour along with other gluten free flours. There’s no need for eggs in banana cake as the banana works as an egg replacement. She then had some…

Sugar Club at SkyCity

The Sugar Club at SkyCity Auckland has an amazing vegan degustation menu AND they are happy to make it gluten free.
