On Friday the 7th of November, as part of the Health and Beauty module, we were
given a talk about healthy eating and having a healthy lifestyle, by Rachel O'Loughlin from UniSlim.The aim was to give us confidence to make smart choices about the food we eat and how making these good choices will benefit our skin, hair and our overall lifestyle.
We were shown how to put together some healthy, balanced meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For example, we were taught how to cook a quick spaghetti bolognaise, a 'curry in a hurry', and a loaf of homemade brown bread. Rachel showed us just how easy it is to make healthy cooking choices! All of these recipe videos are on the Unislim facebook page.
Rachel also allowed us to taste some 'super foods' that are great for achieving clear skin. Some of these were avacado, carrots, mango, broccoli and blueberries. We also learned how to make a homemade hand scrub and face mask using household ingredients such as oats, strawberries, honey and oil. Overall it was an enlightening afternoon and I think it really motivated some of us to begin leading a healthier lifestyle!
