Nutritious Paleo Nectar - Primal Pantry
New Farm is the health hub of Brisbane, with scrumptious fresh produce available from James Street Markets with picturesque riverside places to exercise and an abundance of restaurants catered to fulfil every gastronomic desire. The latest business to bloom on Florence Street is Primal Pantry supporting the Paleo philosophy, one of the biggest trends in wellness exploding across the country.
Today, our species are more susceptible to illness and diseases than ever and it’s time to get back to the basics and eat as our caveman ancestors did long ago: Man Eat Only What Man Need. Ugh! So think quality sources of protein and healthy fats – minus the side of pesticides.
Generally though, what is good for you doesn’t always taste good. So rest assured, Primal Pantry will calm your grumbling belly with a menu both nutritionally appeasing and aesthetically pleasing. The breakfast menu tempts your sweet tooth with cinnamon pancakes topped with grilled figs and pistachio crumbs drizzled with maple syrup. Indulge in this guilt-free goodness with a pot of your favourite tea or a signature smoothie.
For the savoury fan, the rainbow chard with poached eggs and pine nuts is a colourful hero. If you prefer variety, The Caveman Plate is for you. Beware buff bunnies in the bulking phase at gym: for these options, you may only just touch the sides, though it’s a great excuse to get away with ordering something sweet and savoury!
For lunch, go nuts over the braised grass fed lamb shoulder served over exotic mushrooms and nut risotto. The food fun doesn’t stop there. You can purchase healthy staples such as fruit and veg paleo bars and coconut oil to create your own Primal Pantry experience at home.
