Many thanks go to our resident nutritionist, author and Bordeaux British member, Richard Hoffman, for the excellent and very informative talk he gave to over 20 health-conscious members on Saturday 10th September.
Richard dispensed so much information and sound advice that even the most skeptic amongst us took great heed! Especially when we were told that our life expectancy could be enhanced by many years if we indeed did follow the Mediterranean way of eating!
Also, we were all very pleased to hear that, in the words of our very own expert, Richard, it is OK to drink a couple of glasses of red wine with our meals, although he did not specify the size of the wine glass!
To accompany the lunch, Richard and his wife Marella, prepared some lovely tasting dips (hummus, walnut tarator and bean purée) and equally tasty apple and date truffles for the dessert.
After lunch and once we found the appropriate music from her home country, Marella entertained us with some energetic Irish dancing.
Last but not least, our warmest thanks go to Catherine and Brian, our hosts for the day, for their generous welcome and hard work in transforming the garage into an auditorium and preparing the large amounts of healthy food for lunch.
If you would like to know more about the Mediterranean way of eating, Richard’s book “More Healthy Years” is available from Amazon.
