BRUNCH – Digestive system

BRUNCH – Digestive system

Today at BRUNCH we looked at the digestive system. Following a sunny run, Victoria and the group had a lively discussion about our digestive systems, its interaction with the brain, and how to look after it. She explained the importance of good gut bacteria to overall health and how to feed our good bacteria with prebiotic foods, as well as the effect of stress on our digestive system. The menu included probiotics (foods containing good bacteria), prebiotics, fibre and volatile oils… and a taster of some herbal tinctures we commonly use to support the digestive system.

As always, today’s recipes are available here: BRUNCH.

The intake for the next BRUNCH programme will be shortly after Easter.  Keep an eye on the blog and our Facebook page for more info, or get in touch.

BRUNCH – Cardiovascular

The focus of the latest BRUNCH session was on the cardiovascular system (CVS).  After their run, Victoria explained the basic workings of the CVS to the runners, and shared a number of thoughts on how (and which) foods can play an important role.  Key nutrients included B-vitamins, curcumin, folate, fibre, magnesium, manganese, omega-3 fatty acids and potassium.

This morning we launched our new running club, BRUNCH. We were not deterred by the rain and runners returned with rosy cheeks, high spirits and an appetite for food! The focus this week was on foods that help our body produce energy including slow release carbohydrates, B vitamins, iron and essential minerals – magnesium, calcium, potassium, copper, zinc & manganese.
