Food for Energy

I have been exceedingly lax in keeping my blog up to date of late, and I can only offer my sincere apologies.  I have loads of blog posts bouncing around my head, but with trying to catch up on study and looking after my (unbelievably) 9-week old baby Pickle, I haven't had the opportunity.  I promise my birthing story and loads of foodie related posts will follow in due course.

Pickle had his jabs a couple of days ago, which has thrown his schedule right out of whack.  He doesn't realise he's tired and has been a little scritchy... he is currently asleep attached to me via his Baby Bjorn!  While he's only got my milk to help him recover, the rest of us have other alternatives...

My friend Nikki runs Nikki's Healing Kitchen, specialising in holistic health and natural foods (hey, did you like how I did that transition?!).  I have a lovely friend, Chaz who met Nikki when they both studied to be chefs at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts in New York City; he introduced me to Nikki when she came to live in London.  She's an absolute sweetheart, and I can vouch that she practices what she preaches without being preachy, if you know what I mean?

Next weekend, Nikki is holding a Food for Energy lecture.  So to discover:

  • Which foods are best to eat to maintain your energy all day long;
  • Which foods may be draining your energy, wreaking havoc on your insulin levels, and adding those extra pounds; and
  • How easy it is to incorporate healthier whole foods into your diet; then...

... get yourself down to Holistic Health (64 Broadway Market, Hackney, E8 4QJ) on Sunday 30th October at 1:15-2:15pm*.  Tickets are £12 in advance or £15 on the door - which includes a handout, recipe and some energizing food samples - and you can pre-book by emailing or phoning Holistic Health on 020-7275-8434.

Other than helping a friend help others to discover simple ways to naturally increase energy through diet and lifestyle, this is not a sponsored post.

* remember the clocks roll back an hour in the wee hours of Sunday morning.
