Daylesford Discusses is a series of friendly, open format events where we bring together a panel of experts to highlight and debate a variety of issues around food, health, wellbeing, sustainability, balance and conscious choices.

The next event will be at our Notting Hill farmshop and will be a discussion on debunking food myths. The inspiration for this particular topic is our love for real food – organic, fresh, sustainable and good for us. However, with many myths and incorrect facts out there about food and diet, we want to discuss popular myths and set the record straight.

We are delighted to be welcoming to our panel:

We expect the discussion to cover questions such as are carbs bad for you, is breakfast important, is gluten free better, are oranges the best natural source of vitamin C, is low fat better and do eggs give you heart disease?

This event is free, but please do register your attendance to help us keep track of numbers. Please mark your diaries for what is sure to be an informative, fun and inspiring evening.
