NUTRITIONAL AND EDUCATIONAL INTERACTIVE COOKERY CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS


 Our cookery workshops in London are run in AVEQIA purpose-built state of the art kitchens


 

Are you interested in learning new clean, quick and convenient recipes?
Would you like to make and taste some delicious nutritious meals?
Do you ever wonder how to boost your energy and improve your performance at work?
Would you like to learn about how to increase your focus and concentration simply by making smarter food choices?
Would you like to spend a great evening in a vibrant team?
Learn about nutrition and how different foods affect your health?
Would you like to find out how to improve your energy with nutritious meals?
Do you suffer from a food allergy/sensitivity and look for inspiration in your kitchen?

 

All our recipes are gluten free, sugar free, low carbohydrate and suitable for coeliac's, vegans and those following the Paleo diet.

 

Cookery Days:

Our cookery days are not only about quick, clean, tasty and convenient recipes, it is all about teaching you how to get the very best nutrition out of your food. Our classes range between 2 hours to the whole day and are targeted towards a specific health goal such as weight loss, healthy ageing, digestive health, men's health, how to balance hormones through diet, skin health, foods to boost immunity, detox, cardiovascular and metabolic health.

We teach new recipes using the healthiest methods such as fermenting, spiralising, sprouting and juicing at every class so that you get the very best out of the session and leave feeling inspired and with a bag full of nutritious goodies to head home with.

There will be a combination of food demos and hands-on food prep, interactive lectures and informal Q&A. We believe the best way to learn about food and cooking is by doing it, as our hands memorise far better than our brains. 

How to Eat for Vibrant Energy:

This Cookery Day will explain why so many people struggle with low energy and fatigue and why it affects performance at the workplace. It will review how energy is made, all potential factors that can affect energy production, focus and concentration, micronutrients that are necessary to make energy, and explain how nutrition can help in providing sustained long-lasting energy levels throughout the day.

This event will include practical measures on how to improve focus and concentration, avoid afternoon energy dip, increase the body’s ability to handle stress, how to improve micronutrient content of the diet, breakfast and lunch ideas that are easy, quick, available and at the same time nutritionally balanced!

What you take home:

  • Recipe handouts
  • All food/meals you make during the class
  • Sit down lunch at AVEQIA restaurant
  • Healthy waist-friendly dessert
  • Refreshments
  • Goody-bags with supplements and other healthy treats and products from our sponsors (worth over £50)

GENETICS-BASED HEALTH RETREATS


 Lavish private estate of Cap Bénat on the French Riviera


 

A luxury retreat with a full schedule of exercise and healthy meals tailor-made to your genetics. We rejects the notion of a one-size-fits-all fitness and nutrition and instead look at your key genes associated with diet, fitness and weight regulation so you have a bespoke health plan for life.

Who it’s best for: Anyone who likes some serious luxe with their fitness and who is fascinated by a scientific approach to diet and exercise. 

Each day starts with yoga, on the terrace, usually against the backdrop of a spectacular sunrise over the Med. Other activities range from personal training sessions, circuit training on the private beach and ‘animal movement’ (working the body in all three planes, side-to-side as well as backwards and forwards, as we are designed to move) to aqua aerobics in the gorgeous pool, nutritional educational talks and cooking demos. There’s even a hike to the local vineyard for a spot of wine tasting (and yes you do get to taste it).

Despite the high glamour of the location the retreat has a serious educational side, with health lectures and one-to-one consultations to help you change your lifestyle in line with your genetics. 

Where you stay:

"La Radieuse is a spectacular, architect-designed, 9-bedroom villa carved into the side of the hill like a Bond Villain lair on the French Riverira close to Bormes-Les-Mimosas. The villa garden offers five acres of hillside, with a hot tub fashioned out of the rock and a lower terrace, where some of the exercise sessions take place." 

"..lavish private estate of Cap Bénat on the French Riviera, a place so stylish that we couldn’t quite shake the feeling we’d landed on the set of a Tom Ford film." Sharon Walker, Queen of Retreats, 2016 

The bedrooms and communal areas (including a cinema room for lectures) are layered over three floors and multiple terraces, with breathtaking views across the Med.

What you take home:

A detailed diet plan, tips on how best to exercise for my body type and a printed report going into details on your genes that relate to fitness and diet – which includes sensitivity levels to a number of nutrients and food types, from caffeine to carbohydrates and requirements in essential micronutrients such as vitamin D and B-vitamins.

Price: From 2500 euros (sharing) to 6000  euros (£2261- £5427) which includes six night’s accommodation, transfers, personalised meals and nutritional supplements, two one-to-one consultations with the nutritionist, a fitness assessment, two individual personal training sessions, group classes, two massages and a facial,  educational talks, cooking demos, personalised post retreat meal plan, genetics analysis and report post retreat follow-up consultation, in London or via Skype.

"all WellCODE’s team are glowing examples of what the human race can achieve if you eat and exercise according to the requirements of your DNA..." Sharon Walker, Queen of Retreats, 2016

DetoxGen - Preventive Genetic Profile for phase I and II detoxification

This test analyses key genes involved in xenobiotics and drug metabolism, e.g. detoxification of insecticides, herbicides, nicotine, alcohol and carcinogenic substrates. DetoxGen is especially appropriate as a basic profile for anti-ageing treatment and allows to improve your detoxification capacities in order to prevent environmental diseases.

What is detoxification?

Detoxification is the mechanism of inactivation and elimination of waste products originating either from endogenous molecules such as hormones or from exogenous compounds such as drugs and pollutants. These eventually toxic waste products are chemically reduced or oxidised and finally conjugated in order to transform them into less toxic substances and to facilitate their excretion. The liver plays a crucial role in the detoxification processes (elimination of toxins, synthesis and secretion of bile, enzymatic disassemblage of chemicals). Other organs implicated in detoxification are the colon and the kidneys, but also the brain and the skin.

What are the consequences?

At the level of detoxification phase I Phase I neutralises toxins to form activated intermediate compounds. A dysfunction of the enzymatic activity leads to an inadequate metabolisation with unwanted side effects as a consequence. At the level of detoxification phase II Bioactivated substances from detoxification phase I are transformed (neutralised) into soluble compounds by phase II enzymes. Exposure to carcinogenic compounds coupled to a low enzymatic activity of phase II significantly increase the susceptibility to chronic diseases due to ageing.

 

The Test DetoxGen analyses several genetic variations linked to:

• the metabolic activation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

• the drug metabolism and cholesterol synthesis

• the detoxification of herbicides, insecticides and nicotine

• the detoxification of alcohol and the metabolism of toxic compounds

• the oxidation of steroids, fatty acids and xenobiotics

• the protection of cells against carcinogenic chemical compounds and/or xenobiotics via conjugation

• the detoxification of several substances originating from industrial pollution, tobacco consumption, etc.

Detailed dietary recommendations based on the genetic predispositions as well as on the patient’s questionnaire (non-genetic predispositions) allow a personalised prevention, guiding your healthcare practitioner to the protocol tailored to your genetics.
