Hot coffees, cosy knits, fine food, wine and whisky. Waterfronts, wineries and weird art. Stunning views atop kunanyi/Mount Wellington, road trips, a hike or two, and being taken back in time for a lesson in Australian convict history. For a small city, Hobart has it all. Whether you’re a foodie, nature lover, adventure seeker or appreciate a fine drop of wine, you’ll love it as much as we have. Don’t let the weather hold you back either. Winter in Tassie is not only filled with events, but there is something magical about watching the clouds and fog roll in over the mountains and feeling the crisp air on your skin as you wonder past historic buildings.
Self-improvement is a shared hobby and why so many of us make new year’s resolutions and set goals. An Australian study found that 54% of new year’s resolutions made in 2016 were related to health and fitness, yet less than half were kept. Some statistics show as little as 8% success rate of new year’s resolutions.
Why do so many people fail at resolutions and more importantly how do we succeed at sticking to them?
Something I find really hard to see is when people in aim to be healthier or perhaps lose weight or change their body composition, eat a teeny tiny salad for lunch then often cave in to an afternoon 3:30itis chocolate bar or arrive home in the evening and eat the entire fridge. Or worse, starve and end up feeling drained and moody. I’m not at all surprised. A few lettuce leaves, a little cucumber, and a mini tin of tuna are not at all sustaining nor will help you achieve your goals long term.
We are certainly blessed for choice when it comes to healthy and delicious food in Melbourne. It’s no wonder so many of us have become self-confessed foodies and smashed avo aficionados!
Here’s my pick of the best healthy cafes in Melbourne that a healthy fit foodie would eat at. Grab your friends, partner or a date and head out this weekend for brunch.
