It’s Nutrition and Hydration week and here at EEAST we've teamed up with the hugely popular Instagram page @TheFoodGrinder to help showcase some quick and easy meal ideas with our busy #TeamEEAST staff in mind! 

Nutrition is an important part of our health and wellbeing and so we asked The Food Grinder, who is no other than our very own Regional Planning Lead, Alex Dodman, to help with some nutritious and delicious meal ideas/tips.

Alex said, “I joined EEAST as an Information Analyst in 2013 after previously working in a similar role for the Crown Prosecution Service. Working in the Information Team I’ve enjoyed being able to help Operational teams and colleagues understand their data and produce reports and information to help assist their decision making. EEAST is an amazing place to work and in 2015 I was promoted to Information Manager and more recently I have changed roles to become the Regional Planning Lead and have been enjoying getting stuck in to my new role.

“I started my Instagram account four years ago initially because I wasn’t a massive fan of cooking and being based in a busy office environment, I wanted to start getting organised, a bit healthier with my lunch prep and also save some money instead of spending it all in the M&S every lunchtime!

This moved on to me sharing some lunch prep ideas on my page for other busy working people and slowly grew to creating some videos that people began sharing. Since then I have enjoyed sharing as many quick and easy recipes as possible and always take the time to answer any messages, I get from other busy full time workers looking for any different ideas.”

You can follow our Instagram page @EastEnglandAmb and keep an eye out throughout the week to see what’s cooking!
