Cook Well, Eat Well

It can be tough to eat healthier when some of our favourite meals are prepared in a less than healthy way!

Are you looking for tasty recipes with a healthier twist? Cook Well, Eat Well is for you!

Well One took a handful of talented cooks from local community groups, added some NHS nutritionists and mixed them together! The result was Cook Well, Eat Well,  a collection of their favourite go-to recipes, with small tweaks that make a big difference to how healthy they are to eat.

With our workshops in community centres across Tower Hamlets, we’ll prove that reducing the amount of saturated fats and salt in dishes doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice flavour.
Don’t just take our word for it, though, come along to the ‘cook-along’ cooking demonstrations, and have a taste for yourself.

We’ve created a free recipe card pack for you to take home, with nutritional information and cooking tips, so you can make the dishes at home too.

And, if you are unable to come along to our cooking workshops? No worries! Flip through our collection of recipe cards and bring the workshop experience to your kitchen. Get step-by-step instructions for exciting dishes to try out at home that are not only delicious, but also better for you.

If cooking is your passion, maybe you’d be interested in joining a community group to connect with others who share your passion for food? These groups offer opportunities to share recipes, learn new techniques and nutrition tips, and make new friends.

Check out the ‘Cooking Classes‘ activity listings for social community cooking groups in your area.

And, if you’re curious about eating a more nutritious diet, the Eatwell Guide is a great place to start! The guide was created by the NHS to provide helpful and easy to understand information about balanced and healthy eating and food groups, as well as tips on portion sizes and the role of physical activity.

One thing I will definitely take away from today's session is to use way less oil when I'm cooking. It hardly made a difference to the taste, and it's loads healthier for me with less!
