At Corinthia Hotel Lisbon Wellness is a key word. Not only the hotel has one of the most spectacular SPA's in Lisbon and a great fitness team, but it has also developed a healthy and sustainable food program, whose aim is to create menus according to seasonality and sustainability, giving priority to local products grown in organic gardens.
The launch of the Go Healthy program is made with a series of six lunches, to which were invited the integrated nutrition coach Camila Balbi, co-author of the recipe book "Chegar novo a velho", and Valentina Crocco, a specialist in healthy cooking. Together with the Chef of the hotel, Camila and Valentina will prepare a buffet lunch based on their recipes, that encompass different options within the theme of healthy eating.
These lunches are open to the public and are held once a month in the Corinthia Hotel's Sete Colinas restaurant. Each month will be dedicated to a different theme, from super foods to Paleolithic diet. At each occasion will be held workshops to inspire the participants to different and more healthy lifestyles and to bring new ways of thinking and preparing food into their own kitchens.
The program, that started in January, will have its next edition next week and you can savor all these proposals and enjoy the different workshops that will take place with each theme. The Corinthia Facebook page provides detailed information on each event.
I've been present to both February and March lunches and must say that not only have found the workshops quite interesting but was also delighted with the creativity of the menus. Camila and Valentina combine healthy food with captivating flavors and really delicious alternatives to the usual comfort food we all love. So, if you happen to be in Lisbon you may be interested in taking note of the next lunches on your notebook:
April 28: No sugar with love
May 19: Alkaline foods
June 9: Body fit-proteins
The lunch includes a salad buffet (simply delicious!), fish and meat options, desserts (0% guilt attached), water, wine, coffee and tea. The event is starting at noon (local time) and you can make your reservations through the Hotel's Facebook page.
