PAULA, I am a mum to four beautiful Kiddies and a food fanatic from way back! I even became runner up on Masterchef NZ many moons ago and owned a café, Paula’s Plate, in Nelson for 3 years. I meet SAM my partner in 2013 when we did a beer and food matching event together. Turns out we were the best match of the evening. He is a brewer and I basically love food.
My keto journey began early in 2018 when I was chosen to take part in a 12 week transformation program. I went in not knowing anything about keto, and looking back probably would have been quite sceptical had I known. I had not long had my last baby in my forties and I was carrying some excess weight and lacking energy. I never want to feel I am missing out on food or to be hungry! So I was blown away at how easy and satisfying it was to reduce my carbs and start fuelling on healthy fats instead. I began to slim down and my energy levels returned, plus some.
The best thing of all is that I became so inspired to use my creativity in the kitchen to start creating amazing cakes and slices free from sugar!
SAM, a brewer for much of my working life, I have always enjoyed the interplay of flavours. I thought I knew a lot, until I met Paula, and she introduced me to a whole other world of flavour! I like to think I introduced her to some new flavours also. We are indeed the best match.
I began my keto journey after Paula, having watched her transformation. Mine was less about weight loss, and more about weight management. I have enjoyed being able to eat to my appetite, have sustained energy levels, better mental clarity, and no longer feel bloated from the breads and cereals I was previously eating. I have even been going to the gym, another thing I never thought I would be doing! After all, I am in my midlife, with a teenager and a toddler to keep up with!
Recently we have opened a small retail shop, at 5 Montgomery square, offering a daily selection of slices, savouries, drinks, and takeaway lunches. We are proud kiwi supporters, and stock a range of keto friendly products, such as oils, teas, sweeteners; all New Zealand made. We have also recently launched our own line of packaged products, that include ball mixes, biscuits, and breakfast range.
