To tie in with Bristol’s Healthy City Week, we are delighted to announce our new partnership with Penny Brohn UK. Penny Brohn UK is the Bristol-based national charity which helps people live well following a cancer diagnosis. We greatly admire their Bristol Whole Life Approach and the emphasis on good nutrition, self-care and mindfulness.
To celebrate our partnership we have, with the help of chef Lou Marchionne, created a dish specially for Penny Brohn and will be donating £1 of the sale price of each dish sold to the charity. As well as her work as a chef, Lou also offers sessions in nutritional balancing.
We created the dish, the Quinoa Buddha Bowl, with some fundamental nutritional principles in mind and it contains a number of proven cancer-fighting ingredients. It’s also delicious!
Lou says “ the dish is vegan, easy to digest and packed full of antioxidants, in particular turmeric. There is evidence that turmeric, a member of the curcumin spice family, contains cancer-fighting properties. The dish also contains a lot of fresh herbs as well as apple cider vinegar and lemon juice, all of which are well known for their health promoting properties. Some of the vegetables in the dish are lightly roasted and are therefore sweeter to taste, which makes the dish more comforting. It is essentially a brightly coloured, nourishing hug in a bowl.”
Samantha Young, Head of Partnership Fundraising for Penny Brohn says “We are thrilled to be working with Bristol’s Miller Green. We support their emphasis on good nutrition, local produce and ethical fair trade. Their delicious range of dishes offer a tasty and convenient way of helping people incorporate more vegetables, nuts and pulses into their diet but could also be accompanied with any meat or fish”.
The Quinoa Buddha Bowl goes on sale from Tuesday 18th October. Ordering and delivery details are on our website www.millergreen.co.uk or telephone 07910 765649.
Miller Green will also be serving the new dish at Penny Brohn’s Autumn Open Day at their Chapel Pill Lane headquarters in Pill on Saturday 22nd October.
