salad plate and houmousPlaces are open to those living in social housing as well as older people living alone or with a health condition.

What we eat affects how we feel, and our moods can affect what we choose to eat. Improving your diet can help to improve mood, increase energy levels and help you think more clearly.

Experienced cookery teacher Charlotte Fuller demystifies those confusing healthy eating messages, giving you simple tips to help you eat better. We will share quick, tasty recipes that can easily fit into any lifestyle. In just a few hours you will create, taste and takeaway:

  • snacks – an omega packed quick and easy dip and a healthy snack, with healthy fats
  • smoothies – for when you need a nutritious boost but cooking feels too much
  • salads – our favourite mood-boosting recipes for making tasty veg meals

Join us for a relaxing and friendly session and leave with new skills and inspiration.
