It has been almost two months since Nadia Bartel was arrested “sniffing white powder” at an illegal gathering in Melbourne from a $ 1.50 Kmart plate.
And as the ex-AFL WAG tries to move forward with the scandal, it looks like her choice of dishes does – as she was pictured eating a healthy breakfast from a a much more decadent dish on Wednesday morning.
Mom-of-two Nadia, 36, enjoyed avocado, poached egg, mini omelet, and broccolini and zucchini on a sleek white platter with an elegant gray edge.

While Nadia could have cooked the dish at home, it looks like the food plate may have come from a restaurant judging by the beautifully presented vegetables and the artistic drizzle of oil on her spherical egg.
But regardless of the location, the dish is undoubtedly an upgrade from the infamous $ 1.50 plate that has been synonymous with Bartel’s name for weeks.
On September 2, Nadia was caught on camera by her friend and business partner Ellie Pearson breaking the Melbourne lockdown and sniffing white powder from the Kmart plate during an illegal gathering at a friend’s house.
Ellie accidentally uploaded the images to her Instagram page, with Nadia breaking up her silence with a public apology a day later.

“Hello everyone, I have disappointed you all with my actions. I take full responsibility and pledge to take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that I make better choices in the future, ”Nadia wrote in an article.
“To my family and friends, my business partners and the public health workers who are trying to protect us all, I am embarrassed and remorseful.
“I am truly and deeply sorry. I hope I can earn your forgiveness and, in time, your trust.

At the time, private and public gatherings were not allowed in Melbourne, where Bartel lives, under Victoria’s Covid restrictions.
Nadia’s apology – which included a plea for forgiveness from health workers – appeared to confirm that the rally took place on Thursday, September 2.
A later report claimed the video first found its way online because Ellie had a cracked phone screen.

Apologies: Breaking her silence in a post shared on Instagram, the 36-year-old wrote: “Hi everyone, I have disappointed you all with my actions. I take full responsibility and pledge to take all the steps necessary to ensure that I make better choices in the future ”
It is alleged that she was attempting to send the video to her sister; However, because her phone screen was damaged, she pressed the wrong buttons.
As a result, the clip was posted on both Instagram and Facebook and was online for about 10 minutes before being deleted, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
But it was quickly copied by others and shared, going viral Thursday night and making headlines Friday morning.
Nadia and three other women were each fined $ 5,452 after damning images of the party were posted on Instagram.
Nadia has not been charged with drug-related offenses as the police could not prove what she was sniffing.
The influencer is the mother of two and the ex-wife of retired AFL star Jimmy Bartel, a Brownlow medalist who spent his career with the Geelong Cats.
The couple separated in 2019 after five years of marriage.
