Nutritional therapist Helen Adams, founder of Wiltshire’s Oakmead Clinic, has collaborated with one of the county’s award-winning farm shops to offer advice and recipes using nutritious, seasonal food.
The project ‘Food Fabulous Food – 20 days to health and vitality’ combines Helen’s nutritional expertise with many products available from Allington’s Farm Shop in Chippenham and will be run online as a family-friendly Facebook event from May 1.
Helen, who is a qualified nutritional therapist, kinesiologist and functional medicine practitioner, said: “I love working with families and individuals of all ages who want to enjoy good health by eating well without the drama of special diets.
“Having a time sensitive Facebook group means there’s no ‘I’ll get around to it some time’ and it allows people to share their progress, post photos of what they’ve made, and talk about their likes and dislikes.
“I’ll be on hand to answer queries – so it’s also a really inexpensive way to access the knowledge and services of a nutritionist.”
The programme offers an opportunity to re-establish healthy eating habits; boost immune systems; improve body composition; restore energy levels and lose weight at the same time, if that’s someone’s goal.
A free Body Composition Analysis will be offered before and after – so anyone can see how the project has affected their health over a 20-day period.
‘Food Fabulous Food’ will include recipes for meals and snacks (covering meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan). The recipes are high nutrient-density, easy to prepare in up to a maximum of 20 minutes, all gluten-free and with minimal dairy. There will also be helpful guidelines to improve health and vitality and many ingredients are available in-house at Allington Farm Shop.
Anyone interested can register at the Allington Farm Shop via the website here – www.allingtonfarmshop.co.uk/food-fabulous-food/ – or by visiting the shop in Chippenham (SN14 6LJ). Those who register will be given a goodie bag to start their healthy journey. To kick-start the programme Helen will be at the shop on these dates:
*Saturday and Sunday, April 7 & 8 for a food taster session.
*Saturday April 15 (Easter Saturday) & Friday April 21 – offering information on Body Composition Analysis.
‘Food Fabulous Food- 20 days to health and vitality’ costs £59.99 per participant though the early bird price of £49.99 applies until close of business on Thursday April 13.
