Making healthier choices is easier said than done. So to help you bridge the gap between your healthy eating goals, and perhaps the current reality of life (and sugar) getting in the way, we are providing you with the knowledge and tools to get your positive shift underway... all in time for summer.
This is where the wonderful Kim Malcolm steps in again. We are delighted to have Kim's expert nutrition advice setting a benchmark for the 21-day challenge. If there's anyone who knows the ins and outs of good eating, it's Kim. Her passion for nutrition is infectious, so coming along to her presentation evenings is a must! Plus this year we'll be including additional recipes from Anne Halson of freshkitchen.co.nz (and who you might know from her delicious recipes for Raeward Fresh in Queenstown).
Choosing healthy options doesn't have to be a boring or expensive choice. Kim and Anne have a range of tried and tested recipes to share with you. We'll focus on shopping smarter - using seasonal produce to stick to our budgets. Even better, the majority of recipes are gluten free and/or vegan friendly.
Awareness of choice
This is no fad diet and we aren't here to make you starve. It's all about education and showing you how to be aware of your choices when it comes to nutrition. The goal is to create sustainable habits, so once the 21 days are over you'll know exactly how to carry on with your healthier ways.
Kim's nutrition seminar is vital to kick start the challenge. There's a seminar at Queenstown Events Centre and also, for the very first time, over the Crown Range at the Lake Wanaka Centre. Here's where you'll meet your fellow challengers, collect your goodie bag, recipe book and shopping list so you can prepare before the challenge starts.
