Sugar-Free Me Workshop with Maple & Fitz – Thurs 5th May 2016

Thrilled to announce the second in our series of workshops with Maple & Fitz, Fitzrovia’s best healthy eatery and first cold-pressed juice bar. The Sugar-Free Me workshop will focus on Sugar - something many of us are looking to reduce in our daily diets. However, how can we do this practically and how can we do it without feeling deprived and restricted?

In this evening session, you will learn how to reduce your consumption of refined sugar and identify hidden sources, understand how your lifestyle can cause sugar cravings, gain practical tools on managing cravings and discover how to prepare meals which support your energy levels throughout the day while using natural unrefined sugars for those sweet treats. Food will be provided and the session includes a mini cooking demonstration by Le Cordon Bleu Trained Chef and owner of Maple & Fitz, Adria Wu, using wholesome and unprocessed ingredients to ensure you come away with the skills to create healthy meals for yourself.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Why ‘gluten-free’, ‘vegan’, ‘local’ or ‘organic’ does not automatically mean ‘good for you’

A couple of months ago I was in NYC for a conference and I went to the Whole Foods at the bottom of the building for lunch. As I waited in line for a tea, I took a good look at my surroundings. All around me were signs promoting local, vegan and gluten free products – “local pastries”, “vegan cupcakes”, “gluten free cookies”, “organic crisps”. Standing there, taking it all in, I had a realisation about the power of labels and how much of an impact words have on our choices.

Many people shopping in that store would have seen those labels and automatically presumed those products were healthy. In the ever-changing world of nutrition and bombarded by a proliferation of messages, these are the things we’re currently being told are good for you (just as we were educated about ‘low-fat’ or ‘high-fibre’ foods in the past). And yes, organic produce may be higher in nutrients. There are some people who do have a sensitivity to gluten and removing it from their diets has been beneficial to them. For environmental and ethical reasons, buying local produce can be a positive thing. A vegan approach has had health benefits for a number of people.

However, just because a product has one of these labels doesn’t mean it’s nutritious and the reality is, we need to be curious about the food we eat (like animals who naturally sniff food before they consume it). We need to be looking at the what’s actually inside these ‘healthy’ products and we need to question what we are putting inside our bodies.Continue Reading..
