FHT local support group news: Hertfordshire hears about healthy eating

We always look for ways to bring informative speakers to FHT members in the Hertfordshire area and sometimes we go a little further and work with local businesses and organisations, writes Hertfordshire LSG coordinator Jay Chandarana.

Recently, we got in touch with the owners of a new vegan place in town (Letchworth Garden City) and asked if they would like to present a talk on ‘How to eat healthy the vegan way’.

To our delight, the two brothers took our offer and helped us with promoting the event and using their premises. What a great cost saving. The evening was open to members and non-members. The talk was so inspiring and educational: it covered nutritional information on vegan foods that can cover the national healthy eating recommendations.

It gave information on how the brothers became vegan and, with the help of their mum, opened a vegan café.

The evening closed with some sample foods, such as pieces of jackfruit burger, smashed chickpea and mayonnaise sourdough sandwiches, and raw courgette and walnut crackers.
