We’re super stoked to be opening up a Your Food Collective Hub in Redhead and have got the amazing Thea at the helm. Passionate about all things, beach, plastic free and Hot Cross Hearts, she is a real asset to the team!
We nailed Thea down and had a chat about what she's doing this Easter and what keeps her smiling every day.
Tell us your story, what brought you to Newcastle?
True love. My mother was born in Sydney so I think I was destined to live here! After I met my hubby in my small mountain town in BC Canada, we decided to give it a go and be together in Australia. 9 years later, a house and 2 kids and I'm loving it! We first rented in Redhead and I was so happy to hang out at the beach with the kids. Coming from Vancouver, we didn't really swim at the beaches.
My sister also moved over from Canada and I have 2 awesome sisters and brothers in law so lots of yummy big family dinners! The kids; 5 boys and my 1 girl, eat almost as much as us adults do!
What inspires you day to day?
My children and being so close to the ocean and the bush.
Our beaches here are incredibly beautiful so we participate in beach cleans and are always on the lookout for trash to pick up.
Children learn so much by just observing so I try to set a good example for what we put into our bodies and how we treat Mother Earth.
And having constantly hungry mouths to feed..I'm always thinking about the next meal, but dreading the dishes!
Do you have a food philosophy?
Eat real fresh food (avoid packaged foods filled with nasties)
I love getting the kidlets involved in the garden, at the markets and in the kitchen.
With the Australian seasons being so mild compared to British Colombia, I feel we are so lucky to have fresh produce available for most of the year!
What do you love about YFC?
I love that it's local, fresh, seasonal, plastic free and the farmers get a fair pay.
I love the website where I can read up on all the fantastic producers.
What's your go to in the kitchen at the moment?
apples- my kids eat them like they're going out of style!
frozen bananas- great to have on hand for smoothies and I love baking banana bread;)
What are you looking forward to?
I look forward to the day my kids cook dinner for ME!
