Table Talk June 2019

Recipe of the Month

Various studies suggest protein and resistance exercise are the ticket for maintaining good health as we age, and both contribute to maintaining a healthy weight. 

While older New Zealanders get enough protein, we need to eat it evenly across the day (not have protein only in our main meal) and focus on protein from whole foods (rather than from processed foods with added sugar, salt and animal fat). 

Fish is an excellent source of protein and our Herb and Parmesan-crumbed Baked Fish is easy, quick and tasty! 

In the words of Julia Child, "Bon Appetite!"
