Get your teens cooking at home these holidays!

It is important to encourage teenagers to make healthy food choices, especially during the school holidays when food plays an important part in their day. Regular, healthy meals provide nutrients, energy and sustenance, which means your teens feel fuller for longer, reducing their desire to snack on processed foods.

Teenagers are capable of cooking nutritious meals for themselves and the family. With support and encouragement, preparing homemade food can be an enjoyable and rewarding process, helping them to develop life skills and nurturing independence.

Make a meal plan, write a shopping list and take your teens with you to purchase the necessary ingredients, making it a learning and budgeting experience at the same time. It's a win-win situation for everyone! (Although it does require some effort, which your teens may be initially resistant to 😂)

Our friends at Beef + Lamb New Zealand have plenty of tasty recipes to help inspire your teens, like these Easy Mince recipes ... www.recipes.co.nz...

Saint Johns Butchery has a fabulous range of top quality meats to choose from and our friendly staff are always available to provide advice if it's needed. See you in store soon!

Mid-Winter Slow-Cooked Deliciousness

Saint Johns Butchery

Congratulations! You've survived New Zealand's Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year! For many, this is a significant mid-Winter milestone as it means we'll have a little more daylight every day, for the next six months ☀

Congratulations! You've survived New Zealand's Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year! For many, this is a significant mid-Winter milestone as it means we'll have a little more daylight every day, for the next six months ☀

While it's not quite BBQ weather yet (except the hard core amongst us), we can remind you of the delicious slow-cooked alternatives. This is where the economical cuts of meat really come into their own. The marbling and connective tissue of cuts like chuck and blade steaks or lamb shoulder chops and shanks retain juiciness better than very lean cuts when cooked long and slow. And there's nothing like the delicious smell of a slow-cooked meal on a cold Winter's day.

Our friends at Beef + Lamb NZ have some great tips and tricks on slow cooking. A particular favourite slow-cook recipe of ours is Beef 'n' Beer.

Saint Johns Butchery has plenty of suitable slow-cook cuts to choose from in store, and our friendly butchers are happy to help, just ask :-)

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
