Back to School – Good Mood Food

Little Raw Kitchen and The Lighthouse Café are organising a fantastic event: Back to School – Good Mood Food. This is a unique, interactive workshop offering fresh ideas for quick, easy nutritious breakfast and lunch boxes to help get set for the return to school.

Would you love your family to be eating more nutritious healthy foods without too many complaints? This workshop could be for you! Little Raw Kitchen are big believers that eating good food can build better bodies and brains to help support improved alertness, better concentration, mood stability, higher energy levels throughout the day! This September, they are very excited to offer a workshop for parents (teenagers welcome) to encourage and promote good health and wellbeing through food by teaching 6 natural wholefood recipes. This class is very much about empowering parents to be more in control of the foods eaten at home but also to make teenage learners with an active interest in food very welcome. They hope this will encourage some independence to help make more informed decisions about the food we all eat.

The tasting of the food in the workshop can really help you make your decision! When you know better you do better! Smoothies, veggie dips, pesto packed with greens, energy balls, nutritious snack bars, chia puddings, chocolate drizzled strawberry’s, chia and berry jam are all on the menu, so come hungry! The recipes covered are all raw, plant-based, gluten free, dairy free, have no added refined sugar, plus involve no baking! Simple food that everyone can enjoy. Chia, pumpkin seeds, spinach, kale, avocado, raw cacao, beetroot, flax-seed, dates, sunflower seed butter, hemp seeds, goji berries will be stars of the show – all you need to get started is a food processor and a little inspiration. There are super healthy tasty treats and snacks that are suitable for breakfast and lunch boxes, keeping food exciting and fun for the whole family! The recipes are quick and easy, they can also be made in advance and frozen to keep you well-stocked and organised!

All the food they make is to be shared and eaten in class. There will be some hands-on involvement, rolling and decorating your own energy balls and making chia puddings. A recipe book with nutritional information is included for you get started putting new ideas into practice at home. The treats made can be eaten during the class, there is an option to take home to enjoy with family but please bring a take home container if you wish to do so. Tea/Coffee will be available on the night.
