Women lying in a circle


By PW Nutritionist Grace Scott

So it’s International Women’s Day 2020, and the theme this year? “An equal world is an enabled world.” Amen to that! Given that 70% of our customer base is female we’ve decided to dedicate this piece to the day and provide some yummy recipes themed by International Women’s Day!

A day originally pledged in 1911, it is day that collectively belongs to all organisations, countries’ and individuals supporting the cause; equality, unity and human rights. Together we can challenge stereotypes, broaden perceptions and celebrate women’s achievements!

Purple is the recognised colour of the International Women’s Day; we’ve taken that as inspiration to develop these IWD recipes!
