Carly Flynn

We’re obsessed with hearing about what other people eat all day erryday 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.

This week we chat to the lovely Carly Flynn, successful NZ Broadcaster.

Carly Flynn is a New Zealand Broadcaster, hosting radio and television shows for more than 20 years. As well as juggling her busy media roles, she’s mum to three kids, Tilly 7, Jude 6 and Freddie 1. She also runs a North Shore Based yoga studio, www.positivebalance.co.nz to keep some balance!

Your go-to brekkie is…

Whatever my husband makes me. Since having a third child, the mornings have got super crazy in our house, and we’ve had to divide our roles a bit more clearly! So while i’m running around doing household things, he’s in charge of making breakfast for all. The kids have porridge with blueberries and “sprinkles’ (acidophilous) while we have poached eggs, sauerkraut and a cup of green tea.

Your go-to lunch is…

I’m a shocker for lunch. Never organised. Often I have a cheese scone on the run and then pick up some fruit in the afternoon. I must work on this!

Your go-to dinner is…

Love a home made poke bowl. Salmon with brown rice, edamame beans, greens from the garden, radish, avocado if it’s affordable and a nice dressing.

Dessert or no dessert…

Definitely dessert. Any kind of chocolate (unfortunately!).

What you reach for when a snack attack hits…

Fruit really .. or a bliss ball, preferably homemade but more likely store bought these days.

Your fave foodie destination…

Anywhere in the Pacific where I can get fresh Kokoda or Ikamata.

  1. Three foods you can’t live without…

  2. Eggs, fresh fish, fruit.
  3. Your ultimate foodie indulgence…

  4. Raw cheesecake! Delicious!
  5. The recipe that’ll always get you drooling is…

  6. One that someone else has made. Food has become quite boring for me with the kids as we try and all eat the same thing, together, which means if someone else has cooked it, and it’s not for the family, then it’s amazing!
