We were keen for The Food Chain to run their Eating Positively cookery and nutrition workshop as we wanted another taste of their delicious recipes once more.
Around 20 people attended the course which was ran by 3 members of The Food Chain and with support from the Bloomsbury Patient Representatives. The Food Chain is a registered charity that offers cookery and nutrition classes that are tailored specifically for those people who are living with HIV.
The Bloomsbury Patient Network workshop was held on Thursday 18th and began at 6pm and ended just after 8pm in Duncan Caterhall Lecture Theatre. The workshop was a busy evening, it featured a cookery demonstration that was suitable for the experienced and novice cooks, many tips on food safety were shared, and also Food Chain introduced us to many new ways to improve our nutrition with their tasty and simple recipes. The Food Chain highlighted why it is especially important to eat healthy when living with HIV and why we should have a nutritious diet. The evening was an excellent, fun and insightful evening and we all went away with a greater understanding on how we can implement changes to our health by improving our diet and nutrition.
Also in attendance on the evening was a volunteer photographer Asia Msci who took these amazing photographs of the evening. Thank you all!
