Want a great way to connect with your children? Or any other members of your family?
What can an ordinary person can do to help reform our food system to make it healthier and more sustainable?
How can anyone boost their sense of independence, self-sufficiency and achievement?
In our everyday lives, how do we acquire a deeper understanding of our environment, our intimate role how nature gets transformed into the things we eat and drink?
The answer to these questions is,
We are probably at our strangest paradoxical moment in history.
Obesity, diabetes and related illnesses are at an unprecedented high. The research is clear that as a nation and a species we are the unhealthiest we’ve ever been in our history.
Interestingly, the amount of time spent preparing meals in households has fallen by more than half since the 1960’s. Today many households spend no more than 20 minutes in the kitchen, a week!!
Historically, the precise moment when Australians began to abandon the kitchen and hand over the preparation of most of our meals to the food industry, our general health and wellbeing, plummeted.
Ironically some of the highest rating television shows ever recorded in our country are about cooking. Millions of Australians sit riveted each week to at least two or more 60-90 minute episodes a week.
So the interest in cooking seems to be there...
Clearly, so are the benefits.
I'm going on Tour and I want to empower all people, everywhere.
Each visit on my tour, I set up my makeshift kitchen. Come meet and chat with me as I prepare three different, delicious dishes that improve health - 30 or more servings in less than 30 minutes.
The preparation for each live cook I'll be doing is in my video below. That’s all the ‘difficult stuff’ done in less than 10 mins. The rest you just buy and add.
If you would like to see and taste how easy, delicious and inexpensive it can be to transform your body and your health, or if you just love a good chin wag like I do!! I’d love for you to join me!
