Opening Special

A reminder that we have an opening special on our top selling ProZone Protein powder of $75 a kilo (usually $79.50).  Just go to the shop to order. Prozone’s own brand made exclusively for us is made in New Zealand from milk casein protein.  It is 91% protein with just 1% fat and carbohydrate.  Casein has minimal insulin stimulating effect compare to whey protein so is perfect for Zone nutrition.  It also stays in the stomach longer so is more satisfying.

I’ve been using a slow cooker for stews, soups and a few other meals.  I’m pretty new to cooking (just goes to show that you are never to old to learn!)

Milk in Schools

A bouquet to Fonterra for introducing milk back into schools.  While many of us remember milk at school as being a warm and rather unpleasant experience, Fonterra are providing fresh milk and the fridges to keep it in.  For many of the children it will be the best nutrition that they get all day and it will definitely help them to focus and learn better at school.  Hats off to Fonterra for such a positive contribution to the community.
