How to get healthy this weekend

Every January people resolve to join the healthy brigade, and those of us who are already longstanding members vow to maintain the balance between eating well, exercising regularly – and having fun while we’re at it. But sometimes we all need a little live-well inspiration, and this weekend’s Fare Healthy event is an ideal place to find it…

If you’re in the capital on Saturday, head west to Paradise By Way Of Kensal Green, a baroque-style pub, which, for one day only, will be transformed into a healthy haven. Organised by boutique catering company Peardrop London, Fare Healthy brings together cooks, nutritionists and fitness experts (many of which you’ll have read about in Healthy Food Guide) for an event like no other. There’ll be talks, demos and book signings from the likes of Hemsley + Hemsley and Deliciously Ella, exercise classes such as yoga and a Beyoncé dance workshop (it promises to be bootylicious…), plus stalls selling guilt-free treats and stylish sportswear. Did we mention there’ll be cakes and cocktails, too? 
If this January’s anything like the last one (and the one before that), the dark winter days will be giving our willpower a workout,’ says Peardrop founder and event organiser Rose Lloyd Owen. ‘So we’re getting everyone together to bring some collective resolve to those New Year’s resolutions. To get fit and healthy – and to stay that way.’
When: Saturday 24 January, 9.30am–6pm
Where: Paradise By Way Of Kensal Green
Price: £17 for general admission and one book-ahead talk or exercise session; £10 general admission on the day

  1. Well, to be honest I cant decide if that is a piece of cake/pie and if it is, the colour is absolutely too brilliant to eat.
