If you have a busy lifestyle (and who doesn't these days!) then eating well throughout the day can be a real struggle. When you're always on the go, out at work or away from home, finding healthy meals and snacks to buy can be a nightmare. Even so-called healthy products often contain loads of sugar and very little in the way of natural goodness. If you don't eat meat, eggs or dairy like me, then it is often impossible.
So I'm delighted to tell you my next course at Bodnant Cookery School on Sunday 14th September is "Healthy Eating on the Go". It's all about creating your own lunch box with healthy snacks and treats that are good for you and your body! With a little forward planning, it's possible to produce delicious food to enjoy at any time of the day and be something you'll look forward to tucking into!
Fast Food - the Natural Way
I've really enjoyed putting together the recipes for this course. Maybe it's because I've always loved picnics! There's something special about eating food out of doors in a lovely location so making up a packed lunch to take out on a walk is pretty normal for me. I certainly don't want to spend hours in the kitchen though so I've got plenty of tips on making things quick and easy - and fun to make!
For me, the most important thing is to use fresh, natural ingredients that my body thrives on but that certainly doesn't mean living on fruit and a salad! I'll be showing you some completely new ideas I've been working on as well as some of my favourite recipes that are visually appetising, deliciously energising yet require minimal preparation. Wherever you spend your day, I hope you'll never be tempted to buy an unhealthy snack again!
How to book
If you feel inspired to come along, I'd love you to join me for this brand new course. You can book your place online at the Bodnant website or by ringing 01492 651100.
The day starts at 11am (10.45am for a welcome drink!) and finishes at 4pm, costs £95 and, as with all my courses, you'll have lots of goodies to take home!
The Cookery School at Bodnant Welsh Foods Centre is a fabulous place with superb facilities and amazing views along the Conwy Estuary. The courses are always lots of fun and friendly too with a small group and plenty of space to work and relax. We make all the recipes together so, however much or little experience you have, you'll be able to enjoy the day and hopefully go away with a new confidence and enthusiasm to eat healthily!
