Beautiful Sadie Kingman has always been interested in staying healthy and fit. About a year ago she had the realisation that food was something she was really passionate about, loved, and wants to pursue this further. Her father Brett is a terrific cook and has inspired Sadie by always cooking different meals for the family. Her desire for next year is to undertake a course in nutrition and qualify as a card-carrying nutritionist and eventually a dietitian – and we welcome that with open arms!
In this new-found era of authenticity, it is just so refreshing to see these kids pursue their passion for good food and share it across their social channels, way beyond the superficial guise of Instafame. Sadie’s recipe below is just the ticket for a nutritious dinner, a lunch box favourite or you could glam it up for Sunday brunch.
You can follow @sadieknutrition and watch her career in food and health blossom. Oh, be sure to ask her for her favourite food during lockdown – banana and raspberry bread!Print
