Seventeen ladies assembled at the April meeting of Stanhoe and Barwick WI to hear Jane Rose-Land, a trained nutritionist (www.nutritioninnorfolk.co.uk), give many tips on using good practice with nutrition to avoid or cope with health problems. Her message was threefold: to eat regularly, to eat protein foods at every meal, and to eat wholefoods as far as possible.
Concentrating on blood sugar management, and essential oils, she carefully explained the technical aspects.
Then to our surprise our speaker donned an apron and proceeded to concoct delicious spiced toasted seeds as a “nibble”, and “apricot snowdrops” as healthy little cakes. All of which disappeared rapidly on tasting.
We followed this by organising two (not so healthy) afternoon teas, a couple of craft workshops, and a day out in Norwich. We shall have a busy summer.
