The health food movement is spreading its wings across Melbourne, with the opening of Heal.Thy Self Co in Yarraville.
What started as a blog by owners Electra Tomasino (a soon to be psychologist with exercise science background) and partner Dylan Davies (a plumber) is now a cafe dedicated to making healthy eating easy.
We know that eating well and feeling great are synonymous. We saw a need to create something amazing and help those around us.
Now we can actually hand people food instead of telling them how to cook it.
“Trying to avoid sugar, gluten, dairy, processed products and other nasties can be a bit of a nightmare when you’re eating out, so we just wanted to make healthy food accessible and delicious,” Electra explains.
“All the recipes on our menu were born in our home kitchen and we just wanted to share them with the rest of the world.”
The menu boasts a delicious range of toasties, breakfast bowls, salads, raw desserts and snacks, smoothies and detox teas from Storm in a Teacup.
The wellbeing experience at Heal.Thy Self Co. extends beyond the food, with an onsite naturopath, personal trainers, yoga teacher and shiatsu student all counted as part of the team, and then there’s the urban tropical oasis theme.
We want people to feel like they’re on holiday when they visit.
If you’re not from the Yarraville neck of the wood, Heal.Thy Self Co. is a very good reason for you to spread your wings too.
