Did you start the year promising yourself that you would give up chocolate and run every day only to find yourself guzzling down ‘share size’ packets of Minstrels in front of Netflix every night?
Yep, us too… But it’s OK, with the help of Fare Healthy you too can start afresh and make February the new January.
Sound daunting? You might be pleasantly surprised – this is not a fare that is dedicated to convincing you to exercise seven days a week and stick to a diet of solely green tea.
In fact, Rose Lloyd Owen (above), self-taught chef and co-founder of the health conscious event, believes that health and wellbeing comes not from extreme dieting or cutting out whole food groups, but in an INCLUSIVE and BALANCED lifestyle! We already like her…
What’s more, she argues that you don’t need to break the bank in order to be healthy.
In a world increasingly aware of the relationship between physical and mental health as a partnership, rather than two separate entities, one of the best things about this festival is its focus on carving a healthy mind as well as a healthy body.
Throughout the weekend guests are invited to chill out and embark on some gentle meditation and yoga with the likes of Annie Clark from ‘Mind Body and Yoga’ and the ‘Boys of Yoga’.
Taking to the stage to host talks, panel discussions and cookery demonstrations are a range of leading chefs and health experts, including Ella Mills, founder of the hugely popular health blog Deliciously Ella; Jasmine Hemsley, co-author of the internationally best selling cookbook ‘The Art of Eating Well’; and well renowned TV chef Valentine Warner.
Attendees looking to raise their heartbeat can also try out one of the exercise classes the festival is hosting throughout the two days, including ‘Ballet Barre with Natural Sassy’ and celebrity favourite ‘SBC’ with Russell Bateman.
Alternatively, for those seeking advice in regards to food, diet and health concerns, there will be the rare chance to book a consultation with a leading nutritionist or health expert.
Oh – and did we mention the great food that will be on offer? With the feel good festival including brands such as Rude health and Rebel Kitchen, you can expect lots of delicious dishes to tempt you with the promise you won’t feel guilty after!
And the guilt-free factor might just be the best thing about the health conscious festival. This February you can ditch the post-party painkillers and can instead look forward to leaving feeling even better than you did when you arrived!
Tickets are priced at £25 per day and the festival will run from Saturday 4th- Sunday 5th February in the ‘Old Truman Brewery’, East London.
