Nutrition, Food and Feeling Good

Portmarnock Community School Adult Education Programme:

Three separate workshops around the theme of “Nutrition, Food and Feeling Good”

  1. The Big Sleep Workshop 2nd February 10am – 1pm

Good sleep is central to health and wellbeing. If counting sheep is not working for you, you need to attend this workshop. You will learn all about nutrition for better sleep; practise breathing techniques and simple yoga poses (no experience of fitness level required); and develop practical techniques to improve the quality of your forty winks. Wear comfortable clothes! Zzzzzz

2. The Healthy Vegan Workshop 9th February 10am – 1pm

In this workshop, you will learn about all about plant-based nutrition with emphasis on wholefoods. With veganism gaining in popularity, it is important to avoid the pitfalls while reaping the advantages of better health and energy. You don’t need to be vegan to attend this workshop – just an interest in healthy eating and improved wellbeing.


3. The Good Gut Workshop 16th February 10am – 1pm

In this workshop, we will learn what goes on along the length of the gut. In particular, we will explore the microbiome, and its role in almost every disease and chronic illness. You will learn how to “read” your own body, and feed it with the right foods. With scientific research pointing repeatedly back to the gut when it comes to chronic illness, there has never been a better time to heal your digestive system.

Cost: €35 per course or attend all three courses for €90 (Includes supplies, food
samples / starter cultures etc provided by the tutor)
