We have officially relaunched The Food Doctor! Hooray!
You may have seen a few pics from our relaunch event on Instagram but we thought we would give you the low-down on who came and what we got up to.
Instead of an evening of cocktails and canapés, we decided to do things a little differently and organised a day full to the brim with yoga, talks, a high intensity workout and of course, great tasting snacks for our guests.
The day went a little like this…
We kicked off the day with an invigorating yoga class taught by the wonderful Steffy White. Steffy is an advanced yoga teacher based in London and the proud owner of White Light Yoga retreats, a company that runs unforgettable retreats for your mind, body and soul. She encourages you to be the best version of yourself, to find out what you are good at and to do it with love. Six years ago she couldn’t even touch her toes but has since fallen in love with yoga and now encourages thousands of women to take back control of their health and happiness.
Steffy inspired everyone in the room with her words of wisdom and positive energy. We couldn’t think of any better way to start the day! Feeling empowered everyone tucked into a delicious breakfast of our pitta breads with guacamole and smoked salmon, as well as smoothies, yogurt with berry compote and fresh fruit.
For lunch we were joined by our ambassador Dr Pixie McKenna who spoke about the importance of healthy snacking and how she harnesses positive nutrition in her life. We sat down with Dr Pixie to find out a little bit more about her attitude to snacking and how she keeps fuelled whilst working and on the move.
In the afternoon we were joined by a panel of experts including Harley Street Nutritionist and friend of The Food Doctor Rhiannon Lambert, life coach and personal trainer Leanne Spencer, and myself, Gemma, The Food Doctors in-house Nutritionist. We discussed the findings from The Food Doctor’s most recent YouGov survey which surveyed 1113 women on their attitudes towards snacking.

We discussed the findings from The Food Doctor's recent YouGov nationwide survey on which surveyed 2,000 people on their attitudes towards snacking. Guests were offered a feast of snacks to enjoy, including our soya and corn crisp thins, fruit goodness bars, cereal and seed pittas and fresh fruit.
We finished the day with a revitalising Vertue Method class by personal trainer and yoga teacher Shona Vertue. This class is a combination of yoga, weighted resistance training and meditation which promises to uplift both your soul and your butt. Shona believes that the key to good health starts with a commitment to your own self-worth and we couldn't agree more! Guests were also offered a feast of healthy snacks to refuel them after their class.
We feel hugely honoured to have been able to share our relaunch with such inspirational people and we're super excited for the year ahead. We hope you can join us on our journey and discover how you too can harness the power of positive nutrition in your life.
Speak again soon,
