We are a true kiwi sporting duo from Marlborough (top of the South Island, New Zealand) both growing up with a huge passionate for sports playing almost everything under the sun. Friends throughout high school at Marlborough Girls College we caught up 3 years later and discovered that our lives had both taken on the same crazy journey of competing in our chosen sports, Megs with Squash and Soph with Rowing, at international levels around the world and training at intense levels… after about 2 hours of non-stop chatting and of course eating we had learned that both of us had taken on gluten free & whole food diet due to some frustrating tummy issues; bloating, popping noises, stomach-aches – image a knot being tied in your intestines, and gas. These issues created a spark in both of us to learn and research more about health and wellbeing which lead down the road of creating our own recipes by experimenting in the kitchen.
So we decided to share our recipes with everyone in one place and created megsandsoph.com as a platform for friends, family and athletes from around New Zealand young and older to be able to make healthier dishes, snacks, desserts with our own wee twist on them. Most our recipes are super quick and easy to make because we both like to ‘get the job done’ especially when you come home from training tired and hungry = hangry, and all you want to do is to eat straight away.
Along with our health conscious perspective on the foods we put in our bodies to fuel our trainings and ensuring we recover optimally, we are both qualified Personal Trainers and Health Coaches. We really want to help combat the rising obesity rates in New Zealand and start getting Kiwi’s healthier and more aware about what put in there bodies effects the body and mind. To get people moving again and enjoying it, not just because people think they ‘have to’ but moving because they want to, making it fun, quick and enjoyable.
