Caper Berry Gravy

I had a visit from this little creature at lunch, he was sitting in my salad having survived a wash and a night in the fridge!

I recently discovered Macro which is a whole foods store. (Whole foods have been minimally processed and are not neccesarily organic.) No, I haven't suddenly turned into a health nut but I've noticed the standard of fruit and veggies at the supermarket really deteriorating. The veggies do look much healthier from Macro and my Mum always says, "You know vegetables are good when the grubs choose to eat them." (Illustrated above!)

I'm sure I'd pay much less at the market for regular produce however I haven't quite got going to the market in my routine. Actually, most of the organic vegetables are quite well priced it's the fruit that is dear so sadly I'm still getting some fruit at the supermarket! Also remember that without pesticides, things won't last as long. There's also organic meat, a dairy and deli section, lots of household things like detergents and even wine.

Macro has a cafe with plenty of healthy dishes. Imagine breakfast with free range bacon and organic eggs, fresh juices, tempeh burgers,
spelt items and plenty of gluten free alternatives. Yes it all sounds very good for you! ;-) I had a magnificent tofu curry with brown rice and T had a "healthy" bacon and egg sandwhich!

Parking can be hell along Bridge Road but there is a carpark in Macro's basement (limited spaces) as well as a public one at the back of their building.

    I LOVE Macro. There's one in Glen Waverley and in Black Rock, and they're opening another store in Armadale towards the end of the year.

    And walking around makes you feel so healthy! :) I see that they're slowly growing around Melbourne... great!!

    I've not heard about them before but I smiled when you wrote that you had a Tofu curry!! Good on you, and I can imagine T's reaction to that one!

    Hehe, I love tofu though so I was ok with that.
