"The healthy living tips I picked up at MIH I use everyday and I feel 100% better for it. I thought I’d miss all the sugar but I don’t. The fantastic teacher combined with the coming together as a group each week really helped me make the positive changes."
"The course was so inspiring. It opened my mind to variety of new ingredients and produce that I loved. The food was always so filling and delicious. It has certainly improved my health. My cholesterol levels have gone down. I feel a lot better."
"I wasn't interested in cooking but attending the classes has changed my mind. I’m blind and used to rely on a lot of take away’s which are expensive and unhealthy. But now I feel more confident and inspired to cook at home."
"The classes opened my eyes to so many new ingredients. The social part is really good. Everyone turns up – young, old and everyone in between. Everyone’s so enthusiastic and the classes are really well run. I love it, it’s great."
