Hello and welcome to my blog!. My name is Gaby Mora, I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian & IT analyst.

Lateral Eating – eating outside the box, literally – is my food-centred journal, spiced by my ever-growing interest in nourishment as opposed to mindless (and often harmful) food consumption.

What can you expect to find here? Restaurant and product reviews, recipes, travel notes, and thoughts on food, nutrition and fitness. My posts reflect my personal views, preferences, and experiences. My approach to food has been and continues to be shaped by things such as my Peruvian-Japanese heritage, my health challenges, my passion for food and cooking, and my interest in personalised nutrition as a key element for achieving optimal health and performance.

A final word: the articles in this blog are not intended to provide professional advice. For consultations, please feel free to book an appointment by clicking on the Consultations button at the top of the site. To view my experience and qualifications, please visit my LinkedIn profile by clicking on the in button in the header.

Thanks for visiting and happy reading!

  1. Hi,

    You are being asked to participate because your blog posts are tagged as being related to the theme of travel in one of the blog-hosting services and because your blog is not hosted by any commercial agency. Your participation is completely voluntary.

    The survey is NOW OPEN and will remain open until midnight (EDT) 20 April 2011. If you are interested and would like to part in take the survey, please visit this URL: http://bloggersurvey.web.unc.edu/

  2. Another bloody food blogger…

    Silliness aside, it’s good to get a fresh take aside from the usual “OOH FOOD WHEEEEE” that populates this sphere. Healthy eating is nothing to sneer at. Stay at it :)

  3. Hi Gaby,

    I am researching for a Peruvian episode of a food programme in Sydney – is there a number i can contact you on please?

    Kind regards,

  5. Hi Gaby

    A group of us will be traveling to Peru at the end of the month. I was wondering if you maybe so kind as to point out a few places for us to foodies to eat in Lima, Cuzco and Puno? We appreciate any help you can provide.
    Thanks in advance!


  6. I am looking for travel blogs and I like to know if you are interested on guest blogging. I am paying $25 for a copy post article. Please respond back. Thanks.

  7. Hey Gaby,

    Great blog with awesome photos. Love your work! Paleo food really has helped me massively to get my Auto Immune disease hacked. Getting your nutrition optimized is the #1 priority of a bio-hacker. Check out my blog at http://www.mattdippl.com Looking forward to your comments! See you soon in SYD!

    Much love,

  8. Hi Gaby! How are you?
    I’ve been following your blog
    for quite some time now.
    And I would like to ask for your
    permission for me to take a
    screen shot of your homepage.
    I’d like to set up a link to Lateral Eating
    from Eatmarvin. My site’s a bit of a mess
    at the moment. But once I get the archives
    reformatted and uploaded it should look
    more presentable. Hehehe!
    Thank you! :)

    We are currently working on a travel guide of Sydney and we would like to ask for permission to link some of your reviews to the food section.

    Thanks in advance and kind regards.

  11. Happy to find your blog and know that you are Peruvian. My partner is Peruvian, too, and lately I have been spoiled with great cooking courtesy of his mom. She and I just cooked aji de gallina and arroz con pollo yesterday.

  12. Hi

    We would like to include this blog in CataBlog – an online directory of Australian and New Zealand bloggers. Our website is http://www.catablog.com.au.

  14. We’re huge fans of bloggers here at The Atticism and therefore we’d love to invite you to a VIP launch next Monday, in Alexandria.

    We are excited to announce that Vicinity Dining has once again opened its doors for breakfast. Breakfast at Vicinity is a unique concept, with their breakfast menu being created by Renae Smith (Masterchef contestant 2014). Renae (who will be in attendance) has created a menu with a focus on fresh, wholesome ingredients – with most options being vegetarian or vegan, with meat as an optional ad-on. Dishes such as African baked beans, Super Bircher (made with Chia and coconut water), Salmon stack with crispy capers, and a maple bacon and egg roll with smoked paprika aoli mean that there is something for everyone. We would love for you to come to the breakfast banquet and try the dishes for yourself, accompanied by fresh Di-Bella coffee.
    We’d love to send you an invite to Breakfast at Vicinity next Monday and we ask that you kindly RSVP by this Thursday, 17 July. You can contact me on ash-lea@theatticism.com

    We look forward to seeing you.

    Kind regards,

  17. Hi Gaby, what an interesting blog and more importantly an interesting life!

    I’ve just come back from holidaying in Peru and all I can think about now is where can I get my fix – if you have any Peruvian restaurant recommendations in Sydney please send them through. However, I was here on a more business orientated note :). I was wondering if you would be interested in reviewing an online food delivery service (takeaway essentially) and writing a post/blog article on your experience.

    Please give me an email back if your interested mark.serpa@first.com.au

  18. Hi Gaby,

    Awesome blog with prices included, what is something more realistic than others I’ve read.
    I could be interested in contact you for advertise or further information. Could you kindly send me an email contact to talk about it?

    Kind regards,
