We’re obsessed with hearing about what other people eat all day everyday and we just know that you’re all as curious as we are! There’s something so intriguing about knowing the secrets of a healthy foodie. Follow along with this series where we find out what a wide range of successful health-loving ladies eat in a day.

Anna is the founder of the amazing company Nil Products and feels very privileged. She is extremely well educated with LLB/BA/MBA degrees and has practised law and traveled the world for over 12 years. She has a happy family, lives by the ocean and has a beautiful home. Anna believes it is her duty as a privileged woman to offer back through the areas that she loves. That is the environment, people, design and business. Anna is painting a picture of an evolving world she wants for her children and she never wants it to end. She sees no reason why we cannot create business for good. For Anna it is a natural progression of a society that cares for the environment and their people.

Your go to breakfast is…

Chia seeds and Almond milk with organic natural yoghurt and blueberries.

Your go to lunch is…

Any type of interesting salad.

Your go to dinner is…

The traditional NZ roast lamb. I love the smell in our house when I have a roast lamb and rosemary cooking.  It gives me a fantastic nostalgia feeling. Also my 3 little boys all love it.

Dessert or no dessert?

A piece of fruit or a rolled pavlova on special occasions.  I must say seems like a kiwiana theme going on here with the pav and the lamb!

What you reach for when a snack attack hits?

Any type of nut.

Your fav foodie destination?

No bias, really!! – any Wellington cafes/restaurant, we have the best food scene in the country.

Three foods you can’t live without…

Nuts, broccoli (as my kids live on this vege) and blueberries.

Your ultimate foodie indulgence?

Crème brulee. I have never been able to make a good Crème brulee so I always order one when I am out.

The recipe that will always get you drooling is…

No particular one. But love to try new recipes all the time. I love to cook and bake (some people may know about our two Munch Cookbooks that we wrote – one about lunchboxes and the other baby food). In fact the whole business started from our cookbooks and the love of food.
