Fats & sugars: Little bird nutrition classes with Nellie Pigot & Maria Salom
Little bird will be running a series of talks incorporating the nutritional elements of why we do what we do and the benefits to our health. We believe that by eating a diet high in raw, preferably organic, unprocessed nutrient dense wholefoods, every part of our precious bodies will be thanking us every day!
When it comes to which fats we should be including in our diet, it can get a bit confusing. There is no getting away from the fact that most of us will eat some form of sugar regularly, cause after all we’re human right? Here at Little bird we like both fats and sugars in their purest form, contributing to a healthy lifestyle (hello raw chocolate panna cotta).
Come along for some great nutritional tips and you get to sample some delicious treats.
The classes are run by Nellie Pigot who is a UK trained naturopath/nutritionist currently practising at The Centre in Kingsland. Nellie is passionate about teaching people how and why wholefoods nutrition is so important to creating a healthy body. (You can learn a little more about Nellie further down). And Maria Salom – trained chef from Argentina, who is passionate about healthy vegan foods, Himalayan sea salt (sometimes a little too much) and has been with Little bird for over 2 years soaking up the goodness. Maria will be showing you how to incorporate this nutritional knowledge into delicious recipes.

I trained and practiced in the UK as a Holistic Nutritionist and Naturopath from 1999 before arriving in New Zealand 14 years ago. I worked for 9 years at the Holistic Medical Centre, an integrative practice in Auckland and now at The Centre, a multi-style yoga and wellness centre above the original Little Bird Cafe in Kingsland. Over that time I have seen the amazing benefits to patients health when they embrace a wholefood, predominantly plant based diet incorporating some raw, sprouted and fermented foods. The increased nutrient value and availability to our bodies of these foods makes a huge difference to our vitality, increasing energy, brain power and how we look and feel. Little Birds philosophy of "mostly raw, organic and full of goodness" is one that I share wholeheartedly.
