Put down the 2-minute noodles and pick up a frying pan because the PHD Cookbook is here to get you through Quarantine in the most delicious way possible. This month, the people of PHD Australia were asked to submit their favourite quick and easy recipes to the PHD Wellness team, showcasing the wonderful talent and abilities of many PHD’ers, proving they are more than just experts in media! Throughout the cookbook, you will find recipes varying from a traditional Sunday roast to a homemade hearty celery soup to a quick and easy dessert treat. The emphasis is on food that can be prepared with your closest friends and family members. We envisioned this book to deliver a truly seamless experience for the reader. Whether you are an all-out foodie, culinary pro or simply struggling for ideas to cook for your partner or kids, we ensure that you will be addicted to the fun and creative recipes found in this cookbook.

In addition to the cookbook, the Wellness team have also launched several initiatives to help motivate us fitness fanatics through isolation, with one being the PHD Iso Active Club setup up on Strava. Whilst gym’s have now re-opened (thankfully), several of us fitness buffs have been engaging in some form of physical exercise routine over the past 3 months. Whether it be participating in Zoom workouts, cycling, or going for a run, we wanted to ignite some friendly competition and see who the ultimate PHD athlete is each week!

It’s no secret that eating a well balanced diet can fuel you for that gruelling tough morning workout mentioned above, so why not prepare some Banana Protein Pancakes courtesy of Paula Malysevaite (Digital Director) or some delicious home made granola by Emma Nichols (SEO Assistant)? Both of which are available in our cookbook.
