Just over a week ago I was invited to attended an event in Leeds with Currys PC World. I travelled across the moors with local blogging buddy, Let’s Talk Mommy and we had a lovely catch up, making the hour and a half journey fly by.

The event was based on nutrition and fitness with several Phillips juicers being demonstrated as well as a session of yoga to wake us up before the juices started flowing. I did plan for the yoga, bringing sweats along with me, but in the ended decided to go for it in jeans and a jumper – I was a bit sweaty afterwards! It was great fun snapping several bloggers in their downwards dogs, though!
After the yoga our group then visited the three tables set up – one for practising juicing ourselves, one for a cocktail masterclass and one to learn more about the how to add even more goodness into your juices using natural enhancements and additives.

I really enjoyed trying out the juicers, I have owned one previously but these were super robust and very quickly zapped the juice out of everything we added making yummy concoctions at the end.
|Strawberries and lime?|
Because it was an event there was so much fruit and veg on offer – most of which I would never normally have at home. It was really interesting to try unusual combinations to see what worked and what didn’t. I discovered beetroot is actually really great, plus it makes all the juices look yummy instead of that weird murky brown colour some can have. Ginger is also a really interesting taste to add, just watch you don’t put in too much. One flavour I really enjoyed was lime, which surprised me, and I have included it in a few smoothies at home for that morning zing!

It was a really fun day and I enjoyed seeing the bloggers over in Yorkshire I don’t get to chat to very often, as well as meeting some for the first time who I talk to online a lot. Plus I won a juicer with my rather *flattering* photo of Jenny – cheers chick!
