What you will do
2.5 hour class
Learn about different skin type enhancing foods and how to balance them through diet and lifestyle. More people are also embracing clean eating, which supports healthy skin and eliminates the need for heavy coverage products. Antioxidants help protect skin against free radicals in the environment, which are damaging to skin cells. They work to prevent free radicals from breaking down the skin’s elastin and collagen, resulting in more youthful, healthier skin. There are many foods out there which are skin healers, such as avocado's, walnuts, sunflower seeds, tomatoes, soy, green tea, and fatty types of fish containing omega-3 fatty acids that can reduce inflammation and keep skin moisturised. The good news is red wine & chocolate both contain chemicals that can help rejuvenate older DNA - leaving skin looking younger. Brightly coloured vegetables & fruits such as mango, sweet potatoes, yellow & red peppers contain beta-carotene which enhances both skin colour and texture. You probably already know that foods like kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, and other probiotic-rich foods are good for your gut. Turns out they may also combat premature ageing too as fermented foods have excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
The Anti-ageing skin nutrition course is an introduction to healthy cooking, incorporating the healthiest foods into exciting and tasty recipes in a simplistic way to learn how your diet can improve your skin.
You will cook a wide range of simple, healthy dishes using fresh and easily available ingredients. Along the way you will discover the medicinal benefits of such ingredients, the importance of certain nutrient groups, to nourish your skin and get that healthy glow, whatever your skin type.
Sample recipes will include: Creamy avocado & mango smoothie, Sweet potato & coconut soup, Teryaki salmon with buckwheat noodles and broccoli, Matcha green tea panna cotta

About your host, KitchenJoy
Joy started out her career in Corporate I.T Banking Technology but when her young daughter became ill and the medics could not diagnose the cause, Joy turned to alternative medicine to find a cure. She enrolled at Westminster University to study Natural Medicine and with the help of a Naturopath, they found out her daughter was allergic to Aspartame which is an artificial sweetener found in many processed foods. Joy and her daughter changed their lifestyles completely, and enjoyed plant based foods & organically sourced poultry, fish & grass fed beef.
After extensive travel to far flung countries, Joy encountered many cuisines and returning back to London, decided to take up a full time career offering Nutritional & Medicinal based cookery classes, founded on her travel experiences, and past Medicine course.
Joy then embarked on an 18 month journey enrolling at Institute of Optimal Nutritional College (ION) in Richmond for one year on Nutritional modules relating to food, health & wellbeing. Whilst studying at ION, the construction of the cookery school, an extension at Joy's house in Chiswick began. Joy wanted to make the space personal, yet professional, practical and chic. October 2017 - KitchenJoy was launched with a number of exciting nutritional classes offered and the passion of Joy's culinary skills and personality, make KitchenJoy an event to remember!
