I was lucky enough to be asked by Liz and Bradley at Arbour if I'd like to help them with some family cooking and nutrition workshops they had organised for struggling local families over the school holidays. I absolutely said yes!
After years of working across Auckland with Maori, Pacific and refugee communities, it's great to be back home in Marlborough where I can continue to teach others about nutrition and the effect food has on our health and the health of our children. The Arbour workshops were a great project to be involved with and Liz and Bradley should be hugely congratulated for all of their amazing work!
As part of the workshops. Liz asked a number local folk and well-known athletes to share their favourite nutritious and thrifty recipes. Below are some of the recipes that were provided to our families to take home, but we thought they were too delicious not to share! The rest of the recipes can be found on the Arbour Facebook page.
Our workshops were supported by: PAK'nSAVE Blenheim, Mitre 10 MEGA Marlborough, Blenheim Print, Pic's Peanut Butter, Presbyterian Support Upper South Island, NZ Fit Mentors.
