A warm detox drink was served to welcome us. I just loved the taste of it and keen to know the recipe of it. After the initial introductory session. We were taken inside where two more surprises were waiting for us. Plattershare cofounder, Kirti gave a short and sweet introductory speech and after that one of the founder of the event sponsor F2F, Srilatha told us more about Farmz2familiez.

Next session was the live demo of making Quick Carrot Adai Bites using F2F Adai batter. Plattershare homechef and content partner Rajeswari Annamalai gave this live demo and we tasted these delicious bites. She had used a creamy tomato-mint-cashew chutney as a spread on those small adai circles. The chutney really compliments the adai.

After the cooking session, we had a wonderful session where we actually learnt about healthy wellbeing. Mr. Gopi Krishnaswamy from Dhyaana Wellbeing studio talked about healthy wellbeing and how to develop that. He talked about the difference between wellness and wellbeing. He made us realize that to be aware of each and every small thing we have and be grateful for that. Our busy lifestyle has made us mechanical and we have forgot to be thankful for getting the opportunity to live each and everyday. His session really gave us calmness to our mind. We also learnt about mindful eating. Post the session we had a bowlful of comfort food followed by a glass of cold iced tea.

Finally we received gift hampers from F2F and plattershare. I really love those thoughtful gift hampers.
We all said bye to each other and hoping to meet them once again. I headed towards home with a bunch of good memories! My heartfelt thanks to Plattershare, Farmz2Familiez and Dhyaana Wellbeing Café.
