Here is a photo from last Wednesday’s Feel Good Look Good Kinsale - it was such a great night.
Feel Good Look Good Kinsale 2010
I worked closely with Jola from Jola’s restaurant in designing the canapes for the night. I talked about the principles of healthy eating and presented the food at the same time. I always think that when people actually eat the food and hear the message, it works so well, is the practical side of health that people want. On the night we served:
Grilled chicken marinated in honey and sesame with grilled vegetables - highlighting the importance of lean meat with chicken which has been coated in sesame to add fibre and esssential fatty acids, and grilled vegetables helping people reach their 5 a day.
Smoked salmon with avocado puree on courgette and carrot pancakes - increasing the intake of good quality of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids to balance your essential fatty acid ratio on vegetable based pancakes - a totally different way of adding to your 5 a day.
Goats cheese with basil pesto on wholewheat toast - whole grain carbohydrates contain more fibre and nutrients than refined white bread. Goats cheese can be easier to digest for people with cows milk intolerance.
Prawns in garlic and coriander - prawns are a great source of trytophan, a protein that gets converted in the body to serotonin (helping you feel good) and then melotonin (helping you sleep better). The garlic and coriander are great anti-bacterial foods and so perfect if you are coming down with a cold…
What a yummy way of learning….
