Left-Over Veggies, Put to Good Use!

October 31, 2018

Hearing our Australian’s struggle with maintaining a balanced lifestyle, we sat down for a chat with Peta Heine, the author of ‘We Love Food’, to discover how she makes sure her family has the goodness in their diet for an energised mind and body.

Strongly devoted to wellness, Peta is passionate about growing her own fruit and vegetable garden, to give her family natural goodness with tonnes of flavour. Not only does her produce last longer now that she grows it herself, but she gets a real sense of pride when she makes something delicious from her own garden.

Peta’s simple, yet delicious recipes make use of the sad produce taking up space in her fridge that she regret to throw away. Fear not! They may appear unrecoverable, but Peta has the perfect simple recipe, that everyone will drool over.

Preparation is key to getting the most out of her working week, and like us, she believes that we should all dedicate more time to nutrition and keeping our guts happy!

Try Peta’s weekly stir-fry that not only cuts down on wastage but also gives her peace of mind that her family is receiving high levels of nutrition in their diets.
