Eat Well Feel Good

Eat Well Feel Good supports people who are living with and beyond cancer or another long term condition to do just that!

Plate-of-food

We are all constantly reminded of the benefits of eating healthy, nutritious food, but during the course of our busy lives, this can be easier said than done!

The six week project, developed by Macmillan and the British Dietetic Association, promotes healthy food choices that support a healthy weight, especially important for people who have experienced long term conditions who want to regain their health and do all they can to protect it in future.

Sign up now to the latest Eat Well Feel Good programme

Places are still available on the current Eat Well Feel Good programme, which continues on Monday January 18 at Trinity Holistic Centre, between 3pm and 5pm. This session will look at making healthier food choices and learning about the Eat Well plate and a cookery session where you will learn how to whip up a tasty tortilla toastie!

This will be followed by a further four sessions every Monday at the same time, looking at how to shake your salt habit and make a fine curry, making low sugar muffins and pancakes, types of dietary fat and how to balance them in the perfect bolognese and a mythbusting session around diets.

Another six week project will begin on Monday 22 February and will run every Monday from 3pm to 5pm.

To sign up for the current programme or the session beginning in February, call Trinity Holistic Centre on 01642 854839.

 

Eat Well Feel Good is delivered by trained facilitators from Middlesbrough Environment City and Trinity Holistic Centre, under the supervision of Trust Dietitian Savitha Sundar.

Please note, if you have a cancer diagnosis and are currently undergoing treatment, this programme may not be appropriate for you and we would ask that you speak to your specialist nurse, lead clinician or GP about whether it is suitable before signing up.

Shari and his son Jason have taken Middlesbrough by storm with their restaurant’s healthy food offering, which proved so popular the venue literally ran out of food when it first opened and closed for a day to restock!

The restaurant’s philosophy, that healthy food doesn’t have to taste dull, but can be delicious, has captured the imagination of Teesside diners, with popular menu items including a skinny parmo and Gluten free and Vegan foods.
