With spring in the air, now is the time of year people begin to review their diets and lifestyles, and with that in mind the National Dairy Council and Connacht Gold worked together to organise a Health & Wellbeing event at Breaffy House Resort in Castlebar, Co. Mayo. Proceeds from the admission tickets and a raffle on the evening were in aid of ISPCC Childline, which is Connacht Gold’s charity partner for 2016.
Dietician Paula Mee was one of the speakers at the event, and took the opportuniyt to liken a healthy lifestyle to pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that come together to create a “picture of good health.
“The great news is that you don’t have to completely overhaul your diet to make an impact on health,” she said. “Small changes, made repeatedly, can have a big and positive effect.”
The master of ceremonies at the event was style and beauty blogger Pippa O’Connor, who offered the attendees a raft of advice on looking good and feeling good. “I encourage everyone, regardless of your age, to take time to think about your own health and well-being,” she said. “Some of the most valuable investments you can make in yourself are not neccessarily about money; they are about spending time with people who respect you and make you feel good about yourself. Also it’s important to start your day with a positive attitude, and to include fresh food and dairy in your shopping basket.
“Healthy eating is very important for me and my family,” Pippa said, “and Connacht Gold Low Fat Butter means there’s no compromise on taste to enjoy realy butter with all the benefits of less calories.”
Later, celebrity chef Joe Shannon showcased the quality and diversity of Irish Dairy by demonstrating some Easter-themed recipes.
