It was a Saturday morning and as we all walked into Green Shots on Via Augusta, we werent sure what to expect from the Healthy Eating workshop.
As it turns out, it was one of the most fun Saturday mornings spent with a bunch of relaxed English students.... chatting casually and practising English in the most natural way.
We started off by filling in a light hearted quiz about personal eating habits and health facts. The workshop was lead by Elena, one of the Tea or Coffee teachers and she together with the other teachers, made sure we had some laughs and that the conversation flowed freely.
Next, there were a few ingredients in bowls, like Cinnamon, Coffee beans, Ginger, Garlic, and we had to guess their names and beneficial properties. Very interesting! Did you know that Cinnamon has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which may reduce infections and help fight tooth decay and bad breath?
Then we were in for a surprise! We had to go into the restaurant kitchen, read some recipes IN ENGLISH and prepare some food!! In teams of 4 we made Guacamole, Hummus and Tzatziki...then we ate them. Accompanied by the most amazing Green Shot Fresh Juices!
All in all a very successful and fun workshop! I would definately go to another!
