Conferences are a great way to meet colleagues, find out what’s new in your professional field and hopefully enjoy a little down time.
One aspect delegates often comment on is the amount and variety of delicious food that’s on offer.
Sticking to healthy eating habits while you’re on business needn’t be hard - try Lane End Conference Centre’s tips for starters:
Downsize your plate – Who isn’t tempted to load a large plate with buffet fare? However, you can instantly reduce your portion size by using a smaller side plate.
Make healthy choices – All-butter pastries and cakes are in abundance at conference breaks.
Swap these for fresh fruit, yoghurt or a cereal-based treat, such as a flapjack or granola bar.
For main meals, Lane End’s Executive Head Chef, Mike Day, said: “Whether we are preparing a fresh working buffet or three-course gala dinner, we always ensure our conference catering includes tasty, low-calorie options.
“To maintain a healthy diet, go for leaner meats such as chicken and turkey, or fish based dishes with plenty of fresh vegetables.”
Where’s the gym? If your residential conference centre has a gym and other leisure facilities, make the most of them.
Squeeze in a morning workout or plan a game of golf or tennis to round off the day.
Strike a balance – If you’re sticking to healthier meal choices throughout your stay, don’t deny yourself dessert once in a while!
Lane End offers state-of-the-art conference facilities combined with the finest, freshest, meeting catering.
