In 2014 we were lucky enough to be chosen for the first ever series of My Kitchen Rules New
Our MKR experience was an emotional rollercoaster, but it’s a rollercoaster we would ride all over
We started our journey with very little confidence, knowledge and experience, we didn’t think we
would make it past the first round… but we did, we got given the very first 10/10 in the competition,
made it all the way through to Top 5 and to top it off we took home the People’s Choice Award.
We left MKR with confidence in ourselves and our cooking ability and gained new knowledge. The
memories made will be treasured forever as well as our life-long friendships and a stronger
We were away from home and routine for 3 months while filming the series. Our schedules were
hectic, the hours were long, and needless to say we didn’t have the time or energy to look after our
bodies properly which resulted in us both gaining the weight we had worked so hard to get off
before the show.
We decided there needed to be a change, something healthy and affordable for people on the go,
and this is how the idea Healthkicks came about…
Eating healthy is not always an easy or affordable task, sometimes life just gets in the way.
We struggled to maintain our healthy lifestyle while we were away and wanted to help other people
who simply just don’t have the time and don’t want to compromise their health with fast food.
After long hours spent in our kitchen, trying new ideas, failing, succeeding, designing and creating
what we believe to be perfect, we had designed a collection of delicious salad recipes.
Every salad we make is specifically designed and crafted by us for maximum nutrition and taste. Too
often people buy a salad thinking it’s healthy when it’s full of un needed fats, sugars and crap. Our
dressings are all natural ingredients and nothing goes into our product without having a nutritional
purpose. We select ‘The Healthy Alternative’ for example choosing a low fat yoghurt dressing to
replace a creamy mayo option being one of the many healthier choices we believe in and follow
through within the design of our menu.
We put together a business plan and teamed up with 2 business partners, each having 30 years+
cooking and business experience behind them, we knew we had the perfect team to make our
dream a reality.
