January 2020 no only saw a new decade, but a new social media campaign for us at SCPN….#recipeforafuture
#Recipeforafuture is more than a menu item it is a recipe for helping planet health and individual well-being including cancer prevention. Building on the Eat Lancet commission report which sets out guidance on what is a healthy, sustainable diet we want to think how we can get there – what does eating well mean in terms of everyday changes in food habits. Thinking global health, means we need to think wider than our plate and consider how we produce, transport, consume and waste food and drink. It means planning meals where plants are the new main course, wholegrains are core and a huge variety of fruits and vegetables are provided along small amount of meat, dairy and seafoods. It means staying away from ultra-processed choices, saturated fats and refined grains and added sugar.
Throughout the month of January we asked friends and colleagues of the SCPN to suggest healthy meat-free recipes that we could share with our social media following, you can find these collated here. We also published 2 blogs in line with our campaign that highlighted the importance of the campaign not only for cancer prevention but for the health or our planet 🌍
