The Bristol Health Bloggers Brunch
You know when you meet someone and instantly get that Oprah “aha!” moment and realise you’re going to be friends? Now imagine that on a larger scale and you’re well on your way to understanding how it felt to be a part of the Bristol Health Bloggers Community (HBC) brunch on Saturday.
The Health Bloggers Community (HBC)
So what is the HBC? Well, I’ll let them explain themselves:
“The HBC Community is a mastermind group – a coming together of 450+ like-minded people to help one another achieve common goals and grow. We aren’t an agency: we are a community. The HBC Group is the perfect gathering for small and big bloggers alike. As long as you can prove you have a blog / Instagram account, and are passionate about health and wellness, you’ll always be welcome in our community.”
The HBC is a big deal in London and two fabulous women decided it was high-time Bristol followed suit. Camilla Dempster and Hanna Baxter are a wellness coach and fitness and nutrition coach, respectively – i.e they know their stuff when it comes to health. These two firecrackers organised a brunch at The Crazy Fox (I would highly recommend you go, it’s lovely) and invited a bunch of us to come along, eat, network and learn.
Eating and MeetingThe food – oh the food – was delicious. Did I mention it was a three-course brunch?! We started off with one of two Buddha bowls each – either peanut butter and banana or mixed berry and blueberry – topped with fresh fruit, seeds and nuts. Next, a protein laden plate of spiced chickpeas, fresh tomatoes, coriander and cumin on sourdough toast with a side of handmade cauliflower hash browns, baked eggs and alioli. Then my personal favourite: (gluten free and vegan) waffles with homemade apple compote, coconut yoghurt and honey. I was pretty stuffed, to say the least but it was so worth it.
