Check Out These Greenslopes Cafés Serving up Healthy Eats

Greenslopes - Moreish Cafe

Did you know that according to a study, Australians, regardless of age, generally have a poor diet? Check out  these Greenslopes cafés that promote good eating habits by serving up healthy eats and beverages.

A healthy body starts with healthy eating and exercise. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s Poor Diet Report stated that 2017-18 data revealed that less than 1 in every 10 Australian adults met the recommended daily amount of vegetables and 1 in 2 adults did not eat the recommended serving of fruits.

Moreover, in 2011-12, the proportion of discretionary food intake among adults ranged from 33 to 36 per cent. Discretionary foods refer to foods that are not necessary to meet nutrient requirements and are generally unhealthy. Ideally, these foods should only be consumed occasionally and only in small amounts.

It’s good to know, though, that a good number of Greenslopes cafés offer a better and healthier alternative to traditional food. Here are some of the healthy eats you can score around town.

The Jam Pantry | Vegan & Vegetarian Menu

The Jam Pantry serves up hearty breakfast fare using seasonal ingredients. That means their flipping board menu serves you up with specially-designed meals based on fresh produce.

Those who prefer the seasonal classic menu need not feel left out because this charming little gem also offers classic favourites along with yummy preserves and sweet treats.
