Please give us a rundown on who you are and what you do?
My name is Greg and i'm a 52 year old Male working as an agricultural consultant in the regenerative organic farming space here in NZ.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Driving two to four hours and either walking or driving around farms or doing computer work. I have evolved into an educator with the privilege of watching amazing positive change on farms and as a result the people who are on those farms.
How do you keep health a priority with your lifestyle?
My first reaction to this is that I don’t currently make health a priority in my life, but I want to. I want to be fit enough again to enjoy any outdoor adventures that I enjoy (like mountain biking and skiing) so I am learning more about what foods give me better performance or excel my physical and emotional health. I have begun focusing on exercises that help maintain movement and flexibility after having injuries resulting from muscle weakness due to lack of use and a lot of time in a vehicle.
Why do you think Mitchells Nutrition Products will help you keep doing what you love?
I have been using Mitchells Bone Broth and Collagen Repair, I like it as a hot drink (pleasant taste) and other times I put it in my smoothies. Not long after starting to use these products, I had noticeable changes to the condition of my skin, it felt less dry and more elastic. I feel it helped with my digestion over time and hunger pangs seemed to be less.
What advice would you give any readers who are of a similar age and/or lifestyle as you?
Recognise the foods that we eat are a fuel that will either give us higher performance or reduce it and our digestive efficiency seems to be related to emotional wellbeing.
What’s your proudest moment so far?
I am most proud of recognising my own strengths and weaknesses and to continue learning. I am proud of my personal adult learning that has recently been able to flow on to our two twenty-somethings, to help them with ecological knowledge to a level that I couldn’t have comprehended or have known at the same age.
What about your hardest moment, and how you dealt with it?
My hardest moment is dealing with personal relationships and accepting in spite of all best intentions, sometimes outcomes do not always pan out as hoped.
Finally, what’s your favourite adventure spot in New Zealand?
I love the Central Otago area for its sheer scale and scope of geological make-up, the Coromandel for the beauty of beach and bush, and the convenience of Taupo for it access to skiing, biking etc.
