The local raw food revolution ramped up over the weekend with the unveiling of Nude Sisters Whole Food Kitchen in Mermaid Waters.
The picture-perfect space is decked out in crisp white with blush accents and plenty of greenery. A hand-scrawled slogan adorns the wall reading “life is short, eat the cake”.
And eat the cake you will once you lay eyes on the stunning creations owners Bec Askey and Georgia Homer are dishing up.
The two are best friends who met at Griffith University and bonded over a love of cooking healthy desserts, the demand for which quickly grew amongst family and friends.
The Nude Sisters dream began once the girls started wholesaling their treats to local cafes then selling at NightQuarter and finally, opening the café to share their passion for wholefoods with the masses.
The all-day breakfast and lunch menus are made up of vegetarian dishes using only fresh ingredients and of course, some of the most beautiful raw desserts you’ve ever laid eyes on (all of which are dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan and refined sugar free).
For breakfast, the Green Brekky Bowl is a winner made up of tossed spinach, kale, broccolini, roasted almonds, avocado, quinoa, lemon, olive oil and a poached egg.
If something sweet is more your style the Fruit Toast comes highly recommended. It’s topped with almond butter, banana, honey, cinnamon and a sprinkle of house made coconut and maple granola.
Stay on for lunch (because you can eat as much healthy food as you like, right) and opt for the San Choy Bao with minced mushrooms, zucchini, celery, carrot, spring onion, coriander and crushed peanuts in lettuce cups.
Pay attention, raw food just got really good.
