🌎NOMADIC SUPPER CLUBS🌎
These intimate, friendly gatherings are aptly named when you consider the wanderlust nature of their host and founder, Jack Cosson of Plant Box Solutions, a passionate plant-based chef who just happens to love travelling.
New cultures, new ingredients and new methods have always fascinated Jack who admits to being a bit of a Nomad himself. Constantly changing environments inspire and enthuse him and have led him to host the Veganuary Supper Clubs in London in January 2018. -
This new concept has quickly led on to other exciting Supper Club venues in Europe with Latvia and Estonia confirmed for 1st & 9th February respectively with many more cities in the pipeline: Bucharest, Budapest, Berlin, Padova, and more... -
All the Supper Clubs promise to be unique to their location. Original, tasty plant-based dishes will be served, taking into account the discerning palates of local guests. -
Each evening will offer something different since Jack will adapt his menu to seasonal ingredients available at the local market and in keeping with the element of surprise and spontaneity, the delicious menu will not be revealed until the big day!
Travel round the world with us through food at the Nomadic Supper Clubs and experience a new way of eating! -
All events are published on my Facebook page "Plant Box Solutions", where you can find out where & when and buy your ticket in advance. -
If you would be interested in helping me find a venue/cafe/restaurant for us to collaborate with in your city and host one of our SupperClubs then please DM me and we can make it happen!

Getting Enough Fibre while Following a Low FODMAP Diet 💩🍌🍓🍇⠀
Like fruit and veggies, many of us don’t eat enough fibre. Adults should aim for at least 25-30g/day, which really isn't all that much! ⠀
You might have noticed that many high-fibre foods are also high in FODMAPs. 😒 #typical A low-FODMAP diet is likely to reduce your intake of many high fibre foods. Therefore, it becomes even more important to consider your fibre intake when eating a low-FODMAP diet!⠀
Because fibre keeps our digestive system healthy, not getting enough fibre might even lead you to believe the low FODMAP diet isn’t working for you, or be causing your IBS symptoms! 😱⠀
A note on too much fibre ✋⠀
On the other end of the spectrum – too much fibre can exacerbate symptoms in some people with IBS. In particular, increased insoluble fibre has been shown to worsen effects of IBS in some people. Furthermore, some fibre supplements, such as Metamucil, can make things worse, especially if you are already consuming adequate fibre, and if it not taken with sufficient water. So before turning to supps, your best bet is adequate water and a healthy diet. 💦⠀
Getting enough fibre while eating low-FODMAP 👇⠀
Getting enough fibre while eating low-FODMAP isn’t impossible, you just have to choose the right foods, in the right amounts.⠀
1. Grains 🍞⠀
Aim for 3-6 serves of quality low-FODMAP grains. These include:⠀
2. Vegetables 🍅⠀
Aim for at least 5 serves of FODMAP friendly vegetables. ⠀
3. Fruit 🍇⠀
Aim for at least 2 serves of FODMAP friendly fruit. ⠀
4. Nuts 🌰⠀
A handful or 30g of FODMAP friendly nuts per day can do more than boost your fibre intake. ⠀
5. Canned legumes 💪⠀
Legumes are a great source of fibre, but during the low-FODMAP diet, most are off limits. Luckily certain canned legumes are safe in small amounts –⠀
1/4 C canned chick-peas⠀
1/2 C canned lentils⠀
1/4 C canned butter beans⠀
6. Read the label 👀⠀
Compare products to see which is higher in fibre. Try to choose products with at least 3g fibre/serve or more. ⠀
Thank you to my amazing friends over @thefodmapchallenge for compiling this incredibly helpful guide ! 💜🙌😘⠀
Watermelon Crush Wednesday :)
IF YOU DO NOT LIKE A WATERMELON,THEN I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT ARE DOING WITH YOU LIFE? 😋😋.
Watermelons are mostly water — about 92 percent — but this refreshing fruit is soaked with nutrients. Each juicy bite has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids. There's even a modest amount of potassium. Plus, this quintessential summer snack is fat-free, very low in sodium and has only 40 calories per cup. .
Watermelon's high levels of lycopene are very effective at protecting cells from damage and may help lower the risk of heart disease, according to a study at Purdue University. A study published in the American Journal of Hypertension found that watermelon extracts helped reduce hypertension and lower blood pressure in obese adults.
Watermelon may be especially important for older women. A study published in Menopause found that postmenopausal women, a group known to have increased aortic stiffness, who took watermelon extract for six weeks saw decreased blood pressure and arterial stiffness compared to those who did not take watermelon extract. The authors of the study attributed the benefits to citrulline and arginine. .
Arginine can help improve blood flow and may help reduce the accumulation of excess fat.
Watermelon-loving athletes are in luck: drinking watermelon juice before an intense workout helps reduce next-day muscle soreness and heart rate, according to a 2013 study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. This can be attributed to watermelon's amino acids citrulline and arginine, which help improve circulation.

The Importance of Eating Before Your Workout 🍍🍌🍏🥕🥒🍞 You can actually cause muscle loss if you regularly work out on an empty stomach. Here's why: When you're hungry, your body goes into survival mode and draws protein from muscle instead of from your kidneys and liver, where the body normally looks for protein. When this happens, you lose muscle mass, which can ultimately slow your metabolism and make it harder for you to lose weight. Plus, if you exercise on an empty stomach, you're not giving yourself the fuel you need to power through an intense training session. (Eat a snack before your next workout)
What to Eat Before Your Workout
The best pre-workout bite contains some form of complex carbohydrate and a protein. This will keep you energized during your workout without weighing you down.
The Importance of Eating After Your Workout
During exercise, your body taps the fuel stored in your muscles known as glycogen for energy. After you've cranked out that last rep, your muscles are depleted of their glycogen stores and broken down. Eating (or drinking) something that combines protein and carbohydrates 30 minutes to an hour after your workout refills energy stores, builds and repairs your muscles that were broken down, and helps keep your metabolism burning strong.
The sooner you start refueling, the better off you'll be. Research shows that your body's ablity to refill muscle stores decreases by 50 percent if you wait to eat just two hours after your workout compared to eating right away. Try to plan ahead and bring a recovery drink to the gym, and something to eat when you're finished.
What to Eat After Your Workout
consuming protein and a little carbohydrate is best immediately after exercise. Eating after training will help speed up recovery, maximize exercise benefits, and help maintain lean muscle to aid in weight loss.
A #salad so divine, you will never get bored of it... Recipe:
2 medium steamed #beets
1 large #cucumber
2 big, fleshy & juicy #tomatoes
1/2 cup grated fresh #coconut
1/2 cup dry roasted pumpkin seeds/ sunflower seeds/coarsely crushed roasted peanuts
1 tsp roasted #cumin seeds
Chop all the #veggies into one inch square cubes & add rest of the ingredients along with red chili flakes & salt as per taste. Toss & enjoy.
I have added sunflower & pumpkin seeds to my salad as I had run out of peanuts. But I think peanuts go better with this salad.
Beets are high in vitamin C, potassium, manganese, iron, folate & fiber. Beets can help lower blood pressure.
Like most people I was unaware and blissfully ignorant to the cruelty of the meat, dairy and egg industry. I've learned that ignorance is only bliss for the ignorant and once I watched a few documentaries I no longer looked at this food the same way.
I researched the cruelty, I researched the environmental issues, and I researched the health repercussions of cutting out meat, eggs and dairy.
I was truly astounded by the health aspect, thinking all my life that vegans were scrawny, sickly and constantly ill only to learn that nearly all of the top killers in the western world are actually attributed to animal products.
Our digestive system is best suited to digesting plants and on average vegans live longer. Cutting out animals products reduces the risk of heart attacks, strokes and lots of different types of cancers! 😳
But the health aspect isn't what really got to me, it was my conscience.
The gradual but increasingly obvious realisation that with every purchase I was funding an cruel and callous industry only interested in profits.
Once I was able to put myself in the animals shoes it allowed my conscience to finally accept what I'd known deep down all along. This knowledge was simply - my tastebuds are not more important than an animals life. 😔💚
Documentaries that I think are eye-opening:
•Forks Over Knives (Netflix), all about human health.
•101 Reasons To Go Vegan (available on YouTube).
•Earthlings (available on Netflix), about the animals themselves.
•Cowspiracy (Netflix), about the environmental impact of animal agriculture.
BERRY GRATEFUL! If you’ve been missing the springtime, this one is for you! Enjoy☀️

Start the year right by introducing your kids to some fresh juices. Juicing is a great way to give them the necessary brain power, especially from produce that they otherwise refuse to eat.🍏🍍🍒🍌🍅 •
When it comes to juicing you want to ensure that you’re using an effective juicer that retains all nutrients. The Greenis Juicer is such a slow juicer. The low rpm means that the juice is not heated during extraction and is not oxidised; this means that your juice is healthier and can be stored for a longer time! 💪🍹
