UON Student Sustainable cookbook

Welcome to the UON Student Sustainable Cookbook.

This is not just a cookbook, it is a guide and toolkit to inspire students to live a more sustainable and healthy lifestyle. The delicious recipes inside this book show cooking and eating well doesn't have to be hard, expensive or boring.

The recipes in this book were submitted by UON students as part of a competition and were tested and assessed for measures of sustainability, nutrition, cost and of course taste. There is plenty of information to support healthy eating including meal preparation, nutrition information and sustainable food choices.

About the Cookbook

The Cookbook was an initiative proposed by the Code Green University of Newcastle Student Representative, under the Code Green national initiative of Australian Medical Students’ Association (AMSA) and Doctors for the Environment Australia (DEA).

The development of the cookbook involved collaboration with a variety of other stakeholders including Hunter Councils, Champions4Change, UON Discipline of Nutrition and Dietetics and Healthy UON.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
