    Jennifer Pollard from Birdseed will take you through the process of making scrumptious gluten free tweets using ‘bird seed grains’ that will tickle the tastebuds and nourish the tum. 

     

    Jennifer will inspire you with her passion for these ‘power houses of nutrition’.

    More info from Jennifer:

    Birdseed was hatched in 2008 with the aim of developing foods using the little bird seed grains that were scrumptious, but at the same time good for you. I have created a vast catalogue of recipes showcasing the bird seed grains singularly and in combination to make the most of their highly nutritious, low GI, gluten free properties; I will be collating these recipes into cookery books over the next 15 months. I am also studying nutritional medicine which I’m aiming to complete at the end of 2017. I’m looking forward to using my knowledge and skills to assist people in their nutritional journey to a stronger, healthier body.

     Regular updates and information about Birdseed activities and products are posted on www.birdseedtweet.com.au, and also on FaceBook page (Birdseed) and Instagram account (birdseedtweet). If you’d like more information, send an email jennifer@birdseedtweet.com.au or phone: 0404 411 058.
