As I continue my quest to learn more about going gluten free, I am excited to learn that there are many levels of efforts to shop, cook, and eat healthier. My article in July’s food issue of Her Nashville will address several different views on going gluten free, and paying more attention to what we’re eating.
One of the biggest obstacles that I’ve heard from readers and friends is that it costs too much to get on the healthy eating wagon.
We have a number of amazing companies and organizations in Nashville that are focused on educating and sharing info in regards to cleaner eating, and one of those is Lightning 100’s Team Green Adventures.
These folks are partnering with Amber Robertson-Smith of Bliss Holistic to present a workshop that may just help close the gap with expensive trendy health food options and good ol’ cheap processed options.
- When: May 31st, 6:30-8pm
- Where:REI Brentwood
- 261 Franklin Rd
- Cost: Zip. Zero. Nada. Isn't that fabulous? :)
Family Friendly? You betcha. The whole family can get in on this healthy kick and if you make it fun for the kids and get them involved in the 'hunt' while at the grocery, it might be a little easier for them to, well, swallow.
Check out what the pros are saying about this workshop next week:
“This hour and a half workshop focuses on improving your quality of life through making healthy and budget friendly eating choices. Rather than counting the calories and starving yourself, learn how to incorporate eating habits that lead to a happier and healthier (thus a thinner you)! This is an open discussion among presenter and participants. Before attending the workshop, take some time to think about your most common eating or budget issues and how these lead to certain feelings (hopelessness, frustration, etc.). It is always good to have specific questions ready for the speaker so that you can make the most of this event!”
This is completely free to the public. It’s just credible sources and professionals in the field sharing info with those of us who are on the fence about buying healthier items. I know-I was one of them. I’m learning how to shop smarter and healthier without breaking the bank, and if you’d like to do the same, these folks know what they’re talking about.
