Five Minutes With: Kara
Today we'll be introducing you to Kara, GoodnessMe Box's resident wholefood cook, Op's manager and digital marketing guru.
Time starts.... NOW!
What food can you not live without? Avocado, lemons, cacao & coconut
Favourite food joint? Too many to narrow it down - but nothing beats a foodies market.
Your go-to breakfast? Basil scrambled eggs with avocado, kimchi & squeeze lemon. Oh and a cacao smoothie - breakfast #2
First thing you do when you wake in the morning?; Lemon water, heat the pan to cook my eggs & shower
Fill in the blank. I put ________ on/with all my food. LEMON
It's date night. Your perfect restaurant would be? I cannot go past slow cooked Greek Lamb! with a delicious fresh salad and a nice glass of red!
You have a free plane ticket to anywhere in the world. You must be guided by your stomach. Where would you go and why? I'd probably stop first in Mexico because they make the most legit guacamole & pico de gallo (fresh salsa), then I would make my way to Thailand/ Vietnam for their delicious authentic and fresh asian food (& a cooking class) - did you know some thai restaurants here use Tomato Ketchup in their Pad Thai?!?! How inauthentic!! Lastly I'd stop over in Italy, because lets be honest who doesn't love to treat themselves to a fresh homemade pasta, simple woodfired pizza & gelato! Mmmmm. (none of this jar or packet stuff, I'm talking the real deal, made from scratch kind!)
The word Wholefood to you means.... Foods in their most natural state. Little or even better, no processing.
Your favourite food memory is of... Experimenting in the kitchen when I was about 4 years old creating my own 'cookie' and 'cake' recipes. I would literally throw anything in, as well as some blue or green food colouring and most definitely some chocolate, and voila. So much fun!!
3 health goals for this year? Daily lemon water, More fermented/live foods, Regular gratitude journaling
Sweet or Savoury? SWEET
You are known for your... Raw cake recipes - usually either Raw choc coconut & salted caramel cake OR bounty bars! But my basil eggs are starting to get a name for themselves too!
Fill in the blank. I may be full but if you put ________ in front of me I will eat it any day. Dark chocolate
Favourite food quote? Umm I have a few…
- Real food doesn't HAVE ingredients, real food IS ingredients.
- It’s all about balance, everything in moderation
- This one always makes me laugh - Chocolate comes from cacao, which is a tree. That makes it a plant. Chocolate is salad hehe
