There are times when the fullness of living life squeezes our ability to create our own nutritious and tasty meals to keep us healthy and active to live more life! Ironically, that’s when we need it the most and we can end up with less salubrious solutions to fuelling our temple.

Remedying this is new, local, prepared-food creator Sneaky Eats. Operating from the Mullumbimby Industrial Estate, Sneaky Eats was born out of a need to reinvent the catering business of Lara Yakimishyn (Yummy Lara) owing to the pandemic. Lara is the sort of person who you actually want to cook for you; she looks vibrant, has a radiant smile, and exudes somewhat of a culinary-artist-meets-yoga-teacher presence.

The dishes are made with organic focused ingredients from the local farmers markets. Lara explains, ‘We wanted to create a food service for the local community that was Ayurvedic inspired, vegetarian and vegan, providing healthy, delicious, and nutritious meals. So, you can eat like you’re on retreat, with prepared meals made easy!’

The menu comprises Lara’s top catering dishes that have been tried and tested over the years. ‘We are focused on organic, spray-free, and local produce with the majority of our produce and products coming from the local farmers market. Our motto is fresh is best, so knowing that a vegetable has only been picked in the last few days makes that dish or meal so vibrant, alive, and full of nutrients.’

Featuring fresh and colourful ingredients, the menu has Mains, Salads, Extras, and Treats. There are dishes such as vege patties, classic dhal, pasta, and seasonal curry, cooked and fresh salads, white and brown rice, choices of relishes, dressings, chutneys, as well as a garlic-free hummus. There are savoury and sweet muffins, which may be a great option for school lunches as well as at home eats. There’s even a house-made buckwheat focaccia. Dishes come in different size options and all ingredients are listed.

‘We are so excited to share our love of food and health with the local community,’ says Lara. In a safe click-and-collect way you can go to www.SneakyEats.co to find out more and check out their menu. Enjoy the fullness of living life, save time, and eat well.
