And so, breakfast ensued…  Continue reading

Week 15: Biodynamic breaky

Bread and Circus

 Yeah, biodynamic, it’s a thing. Think of it like organic, but on steroids. Organic ones.

This week we explored outside our bubble and visited a ‘wholefoods canteen’ which boasts fresh daily menus. To us that is worth a try…  Continue reading
