How we do this
VICTORIA (VICKY) GARCIA BISHOP, HEALTH SUPPORTIVE CHEF
Incorporating fresh and seasonal vegetables and pulses into meals - initially hidden, we provide a great source of fibre to support the digestive system, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants to boost the immune system.
By ensuring good quality protein and minimising on sugar content in our food we can help balance blood sugar levels. This will aid in maintaining high levels of concentration throughout the afternoon.
By avoiding processed foods where possible, we can reduce salt and sugar which are acid forming. Focusing on fresh fruit and vegetables which are alkalising for the body.
With the use of health supportive cooking techniques we can preserve the nutritional value of meals. eg, oven baking rather then frying and steaming rather then boiling.
"For the last 3 years I have developed an interest in healthy eating and cooking techniques. Having children with dietary requirements has forced me to explore the world of Health conscious cooking and nutrition.
Last year qualifying as a Health Supportive Chef in New York and this year as a Vegan Fusion Chef in Paris, taking on the Loreto School lunches seemed a natural progression in my work with food and raising awareness and encouragement of healthy cooking and eating."
