IN A HURRY? JUST GRAB & GO
Don’t get me wrong I love my NutriBullet aka liquid meals, but some days (okay…most) when I’m running late, I just don’t have time to make one or I can’t be bothered to trail and test new flavours or I haven’t yet restocked all my superfood ingredients #TheStruggleIsReal. Luckily smoothie juice bar are now a thing. One of my favourites in Bondi Junction is O Superfood
