Health Food Festival 2009
Tasty Health Food is Back!
Restaurants chefs prep food that makes you happy and perform!
The Health Food Festival was introduced last year as a parallel event to the Prague International Marathon. In our strive to focus the attention on health food enabling ones performances and to show that health food can also be tasty, we bring you the second version of the Health Food Festival. Featuring this year, more restaurants, some very special and honorable guests participating on the conferencing stage, it promises to be yet another success.
In current days everybody is exploring the way to a new balance in life. The search goes spiritual and physical. Being fit creates a spiritual balance, and feeling fit comes from a healthy life style. Food is our energy, and if we energize ourselves up with food, good for our body, our body will be able to perform. Performance in sports and in daily life is giving satisfaction and the spiritual balance we´re looking for.
Let this festival also make you, your friends, family and community realize that to reach we can also do while enjoying! Health food is not about green leaves, dry beans and soy alone. It is about the food being grown organic, so that the natural origin is not influenced by any unnatural substances. It is about preparing the food in a way that all used attributes and ingredients keep their nutrition value and don´t become harmful. It is about combining the food in a way that one ingredient doesn´t rule out the value of the other one and it is about the environment being friendly to ones mind.
Participating chefs and restaurants will highlight some of their healthy dishes, showing that healthy food is also very tasty, giving all of us new ideas and inspiration! This year the festival in the restaurants will run from 07-05-2009 until the end of the month of May 2009. The created menus correspond to all rules set by our festivals nutritionist, Luca Speciani.
