On the 31st of March we hosted a healthy eating evening led by Tracy Griffen of Griffen Fitness.
- By Jenny
The evening was the first of it's kind that we have done at Broughton Street and was a huge success. Tracy led a tour of over 40 people through the shop, giving easy to follow health advice. The attentive audience learnt about the best teas to drink to settle the stomach, the best breakfast to keep you full all morning - our jumbo oats! - and the beneficial powers of sprouts, to mention a few. Everyone who attended went away with a goodie bag and £5 off their shopping on the night, as well as easy, healthy recipes provided by Tracy herself.
We'd like to say a huge thank you to all of our producers who supplied samples for the evening : Ishtar Foods
, Your Piece Baking Company
, Essential Care, Pravera
, Vintage Roots
, Kinetic, Edinburgh Tea & Coffee Company
, FYI chocolates
, Unicorn Foods
. A special thank you to Rachel from Solgar
who came along in person to give supplement advice and hand out her handmade protein balls, which were delicious! All the contributions were devoured with gusto, with some people even asking for recipes.
We hope to hold more evenings in the future, especially as this first one was so much fun for everyone
