Since I last spoke to you, I’ve been to Amsterdam to a fabulous food fair where I got to sample lots of yummy new snack options and food produce. I love these fairs as they’re a chance to see what’s new on the market and to see exciting developments in the food industry. Some snacks that really stood out for me were some gluten free rice cakes in chilli and balsamic flavours. I also tried a delicious cashew, white chocolate and cranberry cereal bar which gave me something to think about! I’ll make sure to keep you up to date on any developments or tasty additions to Jane Plan!
Jane Plan also exhibited at the Anti-Ageing show in London Olympia last weekend. It was a fabulous event and it was so nice to meet Jane Planners who are getting on so well with the Plan and people are looking to embark on a weight loss journey. We loved that so many people took the time to share their goals and stories with us. Caroline Geraerts, one of our star Jane Planners who is in the photos of the event below, has been on the plan for four years, lost 2 stone and has kept it off ever since! She’s such a fabulous example of motivation, hard work and long-term weight loss! She gave lots of inspiration to people asking about Jane Plan.
I also really enjoyed giving a talk called Weight Matters at the event – it focused on my professional experience in weight loss and how I lost nearly two stone in my 20s and never looked back. I also really enjoyed the opportunity to dispel the many diet myths out there and give some proven tips and advice about weight gain and the ageing process. It’s worrying how many untruths and misinformation is out there. The key point to take away is if it seems too good to be true – it probably is!
I also spent a great day doing food styling and brainstorming recipes this week. It’s one of my favourite ways to spend time and I like to explore new taste combinations and things that I haven’t tried before. I’ve added some pictures for you to have a look at.
With the long Bank Holiday weekend only hours from kicking off – I’m really looking forward to spending time with my family and coming up with some lovely light summer recipes! BBQ season is almost upon us, I for one can’t wait for it!
Have a fabulous long weekend however you spend it.
