Last nights dinner was the yummiest vege fritters! I love this dinner because it reminds me of summer and fam BBQs ☀️☀️ but i also love this dinner because of how cheap it is, while still being really good for you. These vege fritters were made with value frozen veggies, a bit of onion, an egg, a lil flour, and curry power, cajun and chilli spice for flavour!! This is honestly one of the quickest, easiest and cheapest meals you can make as a student, whether you’re cooking for the flat or just yourself, and you can obvs jazz it up in so many different ways with what veggies and spices you chuck in. If this isn’t one of ya regs i highly suggest getting on board!!
I have been more then slack on the gram recently and I’m vvvv sorry but its study grind time 🤓 and unfortunately that means technology detox (kinda, not really) but study is taking over life atm, but only 2 more weeks to goooooo ‼️Super excited to be off home in two weeks and to get back home, will be able to cook and make so many yummy things 😋 but for now its the classic student foodie-ing 😭🤓 This yum lil feta and spinach filo was from @thegoodearthcafenz and swipe for the banana, kombucha smoothie (w a reusable straw ofc) ❤
Hump day dinner this week was the all time go-to @the_jitsu 🍣🍱🥢 (again plz note the chicken katsu is defo not mine but it looked v pretty) I got salmon sushi and @_queenieyong got the chicken katsu and some miso soup 🥣 Tried to not be basic and ate my sushi with some wasabi, literally think I could hack the whole wasabi on sushi game now 😎 it was dlow really good!! As always we left promising we’ll be back asap 😋
How GOOD is some pretty looking sushi?? That doesn’t come in a plastic container ❣️ (This sushi was not mine hence the chicken pieces but a girl can still admire 🤷♀️) Me and my flattie went to Sushi Break in Rosedale and it was beautifulllllllll, so many options it was insane !!! If you’re Auckland I highly recommend 😋🍣
This week we were lucky enough to try out a cool lil local business!! @farmfreshsouth are based just out of gore and offer milk deliveries to the local community. The milk they produce is fresh, raw and unprocessed. Even though i personally don’t drink dairy milk (not very good with lots of dairy and esp in milk), for anyone who does i definitely recommend trying this out!! Myself, my flatmates and a few of our friends all tried it out and we all honestly noticed a difference - the milk was a lot creamier!!! It made for really good coffees and hot chocolates ☕️ (so I’m told, I only had a little go because I’m just generally scared of dairy milk 😬) But, in saying this, Logan, one of the owners let me know that he has found quite a few people with dairy intolerances are actually able to handle his milk!! Im not 100% sure and i don’t want to make any false claims but i have seen before that a lot of times people who react to dairy react to what is put in it when it is being processed, not the raw product itself. When i tried it, i had absolutely no reaction, but to be fair I only had a couple of sips. Also, the other thing i ❤️ about this business is they deliver the milk in glass bottles, and recollect them on their next run, so no wastage whatsoever!!!! Ideal!! So if you’re a milk fiend, i highly suggest checking this cool lil business out 🥛
After all of you’re recommendations we defs had to go @theunbakery while in AKL and was not disappointed!!! It was just so my kind of fooood, i got a quinoa super salad and a yum booooch 😋 wish I had gotten one of the slices because they looked boootiful but I was trying to be a lil money conscious 😅 still a student after all 💁♀️
Ummmmmm loooook at this beautiful lil carrot cake muffin from @dunedinairport 😍😍 it was massive and decently priced for an airport ✈️ finally getting out of Dunedin for a couple of days (love u dunners but ready for some non-student food and warmth) Can’t wait for some good food and to see @asaprocky & @skeptagram LIVE 🤩🤩🤩

Throwing it back a few weeks to this YOM raw carrot cake from @wellandgoodroslyn 🥕🍰 this was honestly so yum and sweet 😋 with it being raw and all I wasn’t sure exactly how cake-like it would taste but it honestly just fully tasted like a cake !!!! Was so so impressed 👌 currently sitting in the libs dreaming of this lil slice of heavennnnn
Last night was a BYO at only the most reliable BYO in Dunners, the Taj Mahal to celebrate @___megandavis turning the big 21!!!!!!!! The basics amongst us opted for not even butter chicken, but literally just the sauce and some plain naan (pathetic). But as for those of us a little more cultured, I ordered the Mushroom matter (absolutely stunning) and some sort of paneer dish (curry of some sort with cottage cheese, lol and I say im cultured) was ordered !!! Everyone absolutely lovedddd both their curries and their naans ❤ The Taj has the most insane list of naans which everyone needs to try, including chicken, cheese, chocolate, (a combo of cheese and choc is also available slightly concerning), a fruit/nut one and a few others. If youre in dunners u already know how beautifully cheap this place is, don’t need to outline it 🤑🤑
Absolute peak of this week was coming home to this surprise 💚🥑 @the.avo.tree avos are honestly some of the best I’ve ever had, they are massssssive and I love that they aren’t ripe when they arrive so there’s no chance of bruises or any mushiness 😇 shout out to mum for perking me up with some avo love 💚💚 @trishknourishme
Rice cakes 😍 one of my go-to lunch/snacks !! You can make the most nutritious shnacks using rice cakes, and one of my favs is with scrambled tofu, hummus and spinach 🤤 rice cakes are the besttttt because you can put almost anything on them and it’ll probably taste good 😎 more winning combos are ofc banana and pb, tuna and hummus, salmon and cream cheese and so many more 👌 if you don’t already do this on the reg I highly recommend!!!
Ya girl FINALLY got her hands on some waffles !!!!!!!! I have been a craving a humble waffle brekkie for days now and this morning we scored big time at @potpourrivegetarian cafe !!!! These waffles were so good, and only $14 😱 they were such a decent size and came with banana, berries, heaps of yog and maple syrup 😋 Potpourris is 100% my favourite spot in Dunedin, everything is so cheap and I’ve been there heaps and never had anything I didn’t love 💕 added bonus is that they are super eco-friendly 🌿 so if you’re in dunners plzzzzz go have a look !!!
Can I just saw again how YUM strewed apples are legit 🍎 i have been living off of it for the passed few days, makes everything so sweeeet n yum 😋 (while being v healthy and all ofc) I forgot how good they are until I tried again at the start of the week and honestly so glad !!!! Been having on porridge, weetbix, muesli, with yog and just anything really lol 😇 helpin keep me warm these chilly winter mornings ☁️🌧
I thought when I went into flatting at uni that we’d all be living off of 2 minute noodles and $1 loaves of bread but NO !!! Somehow being the poorest we have ever been we are still managing to pull out some decent and sometimes boujee meals 🤩 one of our go-to meals is fish (probs hoki cause it’s cheapest) and kumara chips 🍟 not only is this meal bloody yum but it’s way cheaper than you’d expect, esp when kumara is in season 🍠 When @_queenieyong is feelin herself she chucks a lemon in as well 🍋
After successfully getting lost in Roslyn because we are slightly thick for a lil bit we finally found the cute lil @wellandgoodroslyn !!! Can I just say I am so soo happy with the food we got 😇😇 For brekkie, we all got the smashed avo on toast with dukkah (mills got an egg on top) and it was so yum, was a decent price of $8 as well which was mean 😊 We all also got a raw slice each to take away and OMG they were insane - I got raw carrot cake 🥕🍰 and tbh I thought it would taste like health if you know what I mean 😂 but I was v wrong because it literally tasted like cake 🍰 it was sweet and yum and I’m just v happy with it 😋 We will 100% be coming back to have more 😎
