Rough & Bare (yep, that is seriously what they called it) is the new restaurant in Mona Vale, and it is super health focused. I went and checked it out one Friday morning with Mark and Olivia, who both thoroughly enjoyed their meals, and I think all I need to say about my meal, is that when I went back with a friend on the same weekend the waitress told the chef "this is the lady who pretty much licked the plate".
All their principals sit well with what I'm wanting my familys' life to entail; organic, biodynamic food that is grown locally, not only is it better for us, but it tastes better too. The team at Rough & Bare are pro good fats, and avoid sugar. Basically, it is dead easy to go here and chose anything deliciously healthy on the menu without having to put any thought into it. That said, you do pay for the premium food and service....but you also get longer lasting energy from eating real food.
Depending on how many eggs my chickens lay today (another post) we may end up having a family breakfast date at Rough & Bare tomorrow.
I have also heard from a reliable source that the land across the street is set to become a playground, so fingers crossed that happens sooner rather than later, and it will be the perfect spot to have mum and little ones lunch dates.
