Over the last 40 years the “public enemy number one” of food has been fat.
Have you been avoiding fat in your diet? You’re not alone.
We spent a lot of money on low-fat products, try special diets and cookbooks to be healthy or lose weight.
But you need to think of fat as a valuable nutrient that is not only important, but also essential in your diet. Some fats are vital for mental health. The amount and type of fat you consume has a profound effect on how you think and feel. This is because the brain and nervous system are dependent on a family of fats.
What types of fat should you be consuming? Is it possible that you are eating plenty of fat and are still “fat-deficient”? Are there certain fats that can actually help prevent disease and promote weight loss? And lastly, how much fat do you really need?
I will answer to all these questions and more during this workshop.
You will leave with a full understanding about the importance of fat for your health, as well as which fats you should consume and which you should avoid.
You will also receive a handout summarizing all the information from the workshop and including a list of foods that are a source of healthy fats.
There will be a recipe demonstration and tasting, where I will prepare two meals that provide with a rich source of whole, healthy fats. I will also cover the “smoking point” of various cooking oils & fats.
I have teamed up with Nature Elements in Howald for this workshop and they will as usual provide the organic and fair-trade ingredients for the recipe demonstration.
As spaces are limited, make sure you reserve your place on time. I look forward to seeing you!
