We came, we ate, we saw, we nourished, we ate some more....
What a wonderful morning that was! I am still buzzing from the high of the amazing, positive vibe and wonderful energy I've been left with, following Nourishing at Home with such an amazing group of people!
As you know, this nutritional masterclass workshop was created to propel everyone who attended to the next level of health and wellness, regardless of wherever they were in life, from experiencing the power of nurturing delicious foods that nourish body and soul.
And did we succeed? Here's what a few of the attendees had to say about it:
"I learned today how I don't have to go without certain things - there is something out there I can replicate, without it being processed and lacking the nutritional benefits. And I can also make something sweet and satisfying! This workshop will enhance what I am eating already, as I tend to find something I like and then eat it too much so I will definitely be more experimental from now on. My favourite part was tasting and loving things that I've been too scared to make, for fear of not liking them. And the cake - obviously!!! Thank you Gen!" -Shelley
"My favourite parts of today were meeting like-minded people and learning about food combinations. My eating habits will be different now as I'll be trying the different variations!" - Sharon
"I've always stuck with cooking what I like so found it so good to taste new dishes and foods that I wouldn't have tried at home 'just in case' I didn't like them! I now have more knowledge of new tastes so can't wait to try them out and also prepare my snacks better. Top 3 tastes today for me are: 1) Kale chips 2) Pesto 3) Snickers bar!" - Verity
"We learned today how you can enjoy food but still eat healthy. We loved trying new foods and will now be more organised with planning for the week" -Lorraine & Lisa
"Today was a great re-cap of everything I have been working at over the last twelve months. My favourite part was watching good nutritious food look so simple and quick to put together. It has reinforced that this is right for me and that I am on the right path and will keep going!" - Kelly
"Following today, we will now be incorporating mindful eating, balancing food groups and pacing what you eat. We've learned some new ideas and the cake was amazing!" - Matt & Jess
"I've learned how great food can taste without all the rubbish in it! My favourite part of today was trying it all. I'm now definitely going to have courgette spaghetti instead of pasta - even if the rest of my family don't want it!" -Becky
"I loved all of today but the cake was FAB!!! The most significant thing I learned is how good it can be without sugar! I'll now be incorporating new healthier food types within my eating habits" - Sally
So...I guess mission was well and truly accomplished! A sincerely huge thank you so very much to everyone who attended! I cannot express how much the lovely feedback, kindness and positivity you awesome lot have given (and continue to give) means to me.
I am honoured, flattered humbled and infinitely grateful for doing what I do every day as a personal trainer, and for getting this opportunity to share everything we covered today with such a wonderful group of people. Southampton ROCKS!
And an extra special thank you to my wonderful husband Damien, the other half of me, my partner in crime whom without none of this would have been possible and I infinitely love with every cell of my being! And for helping me clean and tidy everything up so very beautifully... ☺️
Thanks again to every single one of you for coming and making it possible. And for anyone who sadly didn't get their tickets in time, fear not because as requested, another workshop is already being planned for winter!
So keep watching this space (and our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds if you're not already following us!) and hopefully you'll get to join us when we nourish at home again!
With peace, love, gratitude and raw cake,
