Robyn is a busy Mum to 2 children. With over 10 years of food experience, I watch as life gets busier and work expectations get greater each year. I’m seeing more and more take away “convenience” processed foods and speed eating amongst my friends and colleagues, to the detriment of their health. I’m passionate about knowing what’s in our food and about food bringing the family together. My mantra is ‘slow down, eat nourishing food and share what happened in your day today’. I realise not everyone can slow down, but look forward to giving valuable time back to my clients so they can eat healthier nourishing food and spend time on the things that matter most. I’m excited to bring I Hate Cooking to Adelaide!
