My friend Philomine and I walk in and luckily score a table before the lunch rush begins. I treat myself to a Turmeric Latte and she tries it for the first time. We get carried away chatting about travel and discovering more about our career paths and what ignites our passions, pausing to marvel at the prettiness of our lunch. Not only is it pretty but it’s healthy and tastes pretty damn good too. We look at the time and realise how long we were carried away for then reemerge back into the wilds of Sydney.

  1. A Turmeric Latte sounds interesting. While is does not sound appetizing to me I would want to try it and would probably be pleasantly surprised! The food does look really pretty. Healthy food always looks more attractive than unhealthy. I suppose it is all the gorgeous colors of veggies that make that difference. 🙂

  2. How was the turmeric latte? I’ve never tried it before, but I keep seeing it pop up in popularity! It sounds really interesting because I’ve only ever heard of turmeric as a spice, rather than in a drink. Definitely need to try that out!
    I hate how you live all the way across the world because all these places you mention I wish to try out!

    1. It was yummy 🙂 the unique spicy flavour took some getting used to when I first started drinking them but now I love them and the warmness and comfort of them. They’re so good for you too!
      You might just have to come and visit Australia some day!
