Healthy and wholesome takeaway at Homeslice Kitchen

Overindulged at Christmas time? Too busy to cook but still after some amazingly fresh, healthy and convenient meals? Never fear, Homeslice Kitchen is here! This one-stop-shop for all your lunch and dinner needs has opened up in Newmarket, and with the delicious salads and ready-to-cook meals awaiting you in their cabinet, you may end up skipping the supermarket next door all together! Bulimba locals are probably already familiar with the healthy takeaway spot, and this second store means that north siders now have a new contender for ‘take away Tuesdays’ that’s filling but easy on the waistline. Brisbane is becoming ever more enthusiastic about ‘making friends with salad’ and Homeslice will you have you besties with vegetables in no time. You’ll find no plain rabbit food here, instead the cabinet is stocked with flavour hits like spiced sweet potato, Thai style slaw and pear and pecorino salads to name only a few. Available in three handy sizes, with options for both vegans and vegetarians as well as the carnivorous types, you’ll be sorted no matter what you’re level of hunger is. Where these guys differ from other salad bars is their oh-so-convenient ‘ready to cook’ meal options which come vacuum sealed, including dinner time favourites like lasagne, soup, salmon and chicken. Stock your fridge or freezer with these easy dinner options to make the working week a breeze, or even better, grab a fresh salad, grab a main, and complete your meal with one of their divine gluten free cupcakes or raw slices for a fuss free (and delicious) dinner! Homely, wholesome and packed with flavour, Homeslice Kitchen is helping redefine ‘takeaway food’ and is sure to be a welcome addition to the inner north. Find them at Shop 102/400 Newmarket Road Reading Centre, open seven days a week. Words by Kat Gridley
