Q1: Have you been hiding your bod in jackets and jeans of late?
Q2: Have you broken your New Year’s resolution to eat cleanly?
Q3: Have you stopped waking up early to exercise because it’s too dark and cold and your blankets have accepted you as one of their own and if you leave them now it might break their trust?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may want to join us in this 48 hour Winter detox. We have sourced brekkies, lunches and dinners that will satisfy and nourish your body. After all, it is a temple.
Detox Day 1
Brekkie: Pure Eden smoothie from Boost
Boost your immunity this flu season with this refreshing and replenishing blend of lemon, spinach, coconut water, grapes, apple, cucumber, kale, mint, pineapple, banana, ice + an All Greens booster. Dairy free, gluten free and under 200 calories if you order a medium size!
Snack: Matcha latte from MySweetopia
Step away from the coffee machine! One serving of matcha is the nutritional equivalent of 10 cups of regularly brewed green tea. Packed with vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc, magnesium and antioxidants, MySweetopia can make their matcha lattes on dairy or dairy-free milk.
Lunch: Poke bowl or sushi burrito from Suki
Suki is bringing Hawaii’s finest poke bowls to the good people of Brisbane! Control the amount of carbs you eat with your choice of base: black, brown or white rice, quinoa and kale or leafy greens. Proteins available include several varieties of high quality raw fish, crumbed chicken, tofu or slow cooked beef. Top off your poke bowl with a variety of fresh herbs, vegetables, dressings, seeds and nuts. Those needing a meal on-the-go should opt for a sushi burrito brimming with superfoods.
Dinner: Spanish tapas at Ole
Ole has just launched their new menu and it is PACKED with fresh and flavourful bites. To start, opt for their spiced almonds plus some freshly shucked oysters with Pedro Ximénez vinegar and chives. Follow it with an order of ‘PESCADO ASADO’ aka crispy skin salmon with pickled baby beetroot, saffron and fennel. Still hungry? Their grilled octopus with herbs, chilli and chickpea puree is hearty and healthy, especially when eaten alongside greens with romesco sauce.

Detox Day 2
Brekkie: Acai berry bowl from Denim Co.
Denim Co. have opened a new space, hired a new chef and launched a new menu full of healthy options. Their new acai bowl is topped with house made granola, sliced kiwifruit and toasted coconut. The bowl can be made gluten free, too!
Lunch: Lebanese wrap from Baba Ganouj
Baba Ganouj has just opened the doors to its shiny, newly renovated location on Little Stanley Street. Order a traditional Lebanese wrap for lunch. Our pick? The falafel wrap, filled with tomato, parsley, pickles, mint, tahini sauce and (of course) homemade falafel.
Snack: Protein balls + freshly squeezed juice from dot.Espresso
Protein, protein, protein! The dot team makes protein balls from scratch using a range of raw, sustaining ingredients including dates, almonds, coconut, cacao, LSA, ginger and cranberries. Order a freshly squeezed juice to wash it all down. Dose up on Vitamin C and antioxidants by choosing their Flu Fighter juice, which is a combo of fresh oranges and ginger.
Dinner: Goi Ga chicken salad from Viet de Lites
Steamed chicken is mixed with fresh salad, herbs and sesame seeds. Become a walking, talking cliche and ask for the dressing on the side.
Why not throw on some activewear this weekend and try your best at Parkrun! It’s a free, timed 5km run, jog or walk held every Saturday morning at South Bank’s Riverside Green.
