Turns out you CAN be friends with salad
We all know the struggle of finding delicious food that is also healthy for us. There are a number of reasons that put people off going for the healthy alternatives: they don't taste great, they are pretty expensive, or they are quite hard to find. Luckily for us, stores like Let Them Eat are the answer to solving all these worries.
Let Them Eat is a health food joint that is situated in the Central Markets. Since its inception in 2008, it has grown in its popularity so much that its second store was opened in Westfield Marion. Catering to people who are health conscious, gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan, the options of food and drink here are versatile, affordable, and convenient to take away in cute and environment-friendly containers.
Having only recently experienced the magic of "fritters", I was tempted to try the cauliflower fritters, which are stuffed with a balance of well cooked, crunchy, and pureed veggies. Served with garlic aioli and onion jam, this was a meal that was well enjoyed by two people. One fritter is surprisingly filling for one person, so there's certainly room to share.
Not being a huge salad eater, there are surprisingly lots of salads available here that catered well to my tastebuds. There are some that combine quinoa with carrot, while others bring together mung bean with ginger and soy. There is a burst of flavours from these salads that not only ticks the boxes of having nutritional values, but also fulfils the needs of being a truly satisfying snack (that can easily be a brunch or lunch meal).
Have a strong sweet tooth? Let Them Eat also offers varieties of dessert options that are made from vegan and organic local produce, so you can enjoy feasting on them and supporting local farmers simultaneously.
If anyone is interested it is located on the ground floor at the western end near Woolworths supermarket. The food looks amazing and so many choices, plenty of staff so the wait is minimal. As it is made fresh daily people may also be interested to know, towards the end of trading for the day, the food that is left is sold off at a cheaper price, which is also good for those on a tight budget, but you have to be quick.
