One weekend, after hiking and intense squat exercise at a hill near where I live, I found myself in a hipster cafe. This modern cafe is furnished with wooden fittings, offers smoothie bowls, cold-pressed juice, and other superfood-laden dishes. My exercise buddies and I thought – how can we ruin hours of exercise with unhealthy food? So this place – aptly named ‘Goodness Green’ – feels just right.
We ordered Nasi Lemak Wrap (made with quinoa, nuts, vegetables and coconut oil amongst other things), cold-pressed juice and a smoothie bowl to replenish our expended energy and rebuild our aching muscles. We thoroughly enjoy the breakfast, especially the Pittaya Smoothie Bowl. It’s made with red dragon fruit topped with bananas, virgin coconut oil, almond milk, cacao nibs, granola, strawberries, bee pollen, desiccated coconut and chia seeds.
I thought to myself: ‘I don’t mind having this everyday!’. Eating fruits, vegetables, and other food which incorporate a lot of superfood made me feel so good…until the bill came. Then I realise that I cannot be spending RM 18 on a smoothie bowl everyday. It’s only part of my breakfast – may I add.
