Getting good vegetarian meals in Sydney isn't easy.

But there are a few great places, and I am fortunate that I am working directly across the road from one at the moment. I may be a little obsessed - as you will soon discover.

The Nature Care College not only offers qualifications and training in natural therapies, but a great little vegetarian cafe. Nature Care Cafe is cash only, and the facilities are pretty basic - but the food is made fresh each day and is pretty good value.

This week alone I have tried four different meals, all under $10 each.

My week began with the the sweet potato and fetta stuffed mushroom with salad on Monday. Although the mushroom was a little oily, overall it was a tasty and filling meal.

On Tuesday I was inspired our Malaysian client and tucked into the tofu and vegetable Laksa. This was a pretty big serve and the perfect lunch on a cold winter's day.

Wednesday's lunch was a toasted felafel and tabouli wrap - my favourite. This was the cheapest meal of the week, at just $5.50, so I decided to spoil myself with a piece of baked cheesecake - yum!

And today I had the veggie burger, with a sweet potato patty and sweet chilli sauce on a wholemeal bun. Yet another delicious and fresh option, filling my hungry little belly.

Tomorrow is Friday and I am pretty sure I will head over to Nature Care around 12:30pm. What I'm not sure about is what I will order, but I do know that the food will be fresh, tasty, affordable and vegetarian.

It's worth a stop in for morning tea or lunch. I've only tried four of the many options available at this humble eatery this week. There are a selection of salads, lasagna and pasta bakes, pastries and cakes, rice paper rolls, soups, yoghurts and many other snacks and (hot and cold) drinks. I look forward to trying them all.
