Slappped-together catering

Monday, October 21, 2019

Not, it's not a spelling error!!

Mt Barney Lodge is constantly updating the meals that we describe as having been thoughtfully "slappped" together for you. They are in fact:

S ustainable
L ocal
A ustralian
P lastic-free
P alm oil-free
P lant-based
E co (minimal waste)
D elicious

This ensures our meals as low impact as we can make them.

The new IPCC  (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report recommends meat consumption will have to be cut to reduce methane production to slow climate change - among the measures put forward by the report is the proposal of a major shift towards vegetarian and vegan diets. “The consumption of healthy and sustainable diets, such as those based on coarse grains, pulses and vegetables, and nuts and seeds … presents major opportunities for reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” the report states.

While Mt Barney Lodge does not plan to completely remove meat from our catering all-together, vegetarian options will be front and centre, and meat will be a "flavour" in our meals .. not the main course!


To tick the local/australian/plant-based/palm oil-free and delicious "box" - we are excited to find another great product that is made locally on the Gold Coast, is made from at least 94% Australian ingredients, and it does not contain palm oil (unlike most other wraps). Best of all it is soft and delicious - look out for Classic Wrap - Diego's Authentic Foods. We discovered them in our local Boonah IGA.
