Eat Well Around Town

What a great time of year to be in Shanghai! The leaves are popping out all over the Former French Concession and restaurants around town are filled with customers eating “al fresco”.

There are plenty of events to get you in the mood to eat well:

First check out Sproutlifestyle’s (my favorite specialty whole foods store) new location at  388 Shaanxi Nan Road near the corner with Fuxing Xi Road. While you are there perusing all the new and favorite foods, be sure to register  for one of the fun  foodie and wellness health classes. www.sproutlifestyle.com

Still worried about eating safely in Shanghai? If you are a member of SEA  sign up for  the April 27th event, From Paddock to Plate. Richie Gelber of  Gusto Fine Foods fame and Hamish Pollitt, executive chef at M on the Bund, team together to give an unadulterated look at the agricultural industry here in China. www.seashanghai.org

EperMarket and the  Community Center in Pudong will co-host  a Healthy Living in Shanghai workshop on Thursday, April  23 rd from 10 am – 1 pm.  Yours truly will be speaking that morning on Having a Healthy and Safe Diet Shanghai Style!  Contact: pudongclass@communitycenter.cn for more information.

Kate & Kimi and Fields are both celebrating anniversaries  so check them out for special deals and events all month long. www.fieldschina.com  www.kateandkimi.com

Remember you can find all the information you need on eating and shopping well in Shanghai  in the handy Eat Well Shanghai Guide to Eating Well at Home and on the Run, 2nd edition available from Kate&Kimi and this website.

Over the next two months take advantage of all the outdoor opportunities to eat well before the dragons of summer roll in and push us back inside to cool down.

Eat Well, Live Well, Have Fun!
