Long Table Meals

OxVeg supporter Amy Symington gained an MSc in Applied Human Nutrition from Oxford Brookes University.  Back home in Canada, Amy is a nutrition professor, research associate, and plant-based chef at George Brown College, Toronto.  She also coordinates the culinary nutrition program at Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto (GCGT), a not-for-profit organisation that provides social and emotional support for people affected by cancer.  Amy has written a cookbook and nutrition guide for chronic disease prevention and management, Long Table Meals: A community focused, culinary nutrition guide to optimal health, to be published in September 2019.  In the introduction she writes: “Taking the time to sit, eat and share homemade, nutrient dense meals with loved ones is important at any stage in life, but can be particularly vital when faced with compromised health.  Sharing and breaking bread together can be medicinal in so many ways.”  Proceeds from sales of the book will be donated to GCGT.  A selection of Amy’s vegan recipes and further details can be found on her website: http://ameliaeats.com/.
