As a contracted provider for the Brisbane City Coucil’s Active & Healthy Program, I recently ran a series of four “Spring Clean Your Menu” cooking & nutrition workshops. And what a fantastic venue the Brisbane City Council provided in the Outdoor Kitchen at the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens!
I regularly run free & low-cost nutrition and cooking workshops for the Brisbane City Council. Head to this page to see if there are any coming up!
The workshops were well attended with most being sell-outs. Each Spring Clean Your Menu workshop began with an introduction to nutrition and the what are the fundamentals of eating a balanced diet.
Following this we got hands-on and made some delicious foods from breakfasts ideas through to snacks, dinners and lunches. No one could believe there were vegetables in their ‘carrot cake porridge’ while the crowd favourite dish was certainly the spiced, whole baked cauliflower.
The BBQ chicken thighs went down a treat and the left over “choose your own adventure” muffins were a god-send for work snacks that week.
If learning a bit about nutrition and getting some inspiration for different and new recipes is of interest to you, I recommend checking out my upcoming workshops page. There’s usually something coming up!
The bonus of the BCC workshops is that they’re outdoors so you get some great fresh air at the same time!
