Paleo CafeĀ  – Sydney Bondi Junction was one of the first franchises to be announced and plans are well underway for the grand opening in October 2014. Bondi Junction franchisee Greg Sawyer was in Cairns this week to learn the ropes and we sat him down to ask a couple of questions to help you get to know him better.

When and why did you start living the Paleo lifestyle?
I started living a Paleo lifestyle mid 2012 upon returning to Australia from working overseas in areas where fresh nutritious food was very hard to come by. I felt amazing within a week and haven’t looked back since.

What made you want to open your own Paleo Cafe?
Owning my own business has been a dream of mine for many years. I found out about Paleo Cafe on Facebook through my crossfit coach Chad Mackay. A few months later I saw that Paleo Cafe was franchising, and was speaking to Jai and Marlies about Bondi Junction the very next day.

What is your favourite quick & easy Paleo meal to cook at home?
Grilled spiced chicken, mashed sweet potato with coconut oil, avocado and steamed veggies. I’m a big eater and this meal fills me to the brim, and only takes about 15min to cook.

How do you like to keep fit?
Crossfit.

What do you like to do in your down time?

I love the ocean, the snow, nature, sun and adrenalin so I’ll be doing any combination of them in my free time.

We’re sure that our NSW fans are looking forward to getting to know Greg and his team at Paleo Cafe Sydney (Bondi Junction) and eagerly counting down until they open. To stay up to date with their latest developments and local news, make sure you like their Facebook Page.
