This means that the charity can help around 3000 people in 2018 with their nutritional programme.
HRH enjoyed one of Penny Brohn’s cooking demos and met clients and their families when he visited the charity’s Pill-based National Centre last year.
A Foundation spokesperson added: “The Prince saw some of the excellent work done by Penny Brohn during his visit. Through his Foundation, we hope more will benefit from the charity's efforts to promote the importance of diet and nutrition, and to help make life with cancer that little bit easier for people.”
With over 37 years’ experience, Penny Brohn understands that cancer impacts everything and the number affected is increasing.
Its Bristol Whole Life Approach supports people with cancer and close supporters to participate in their health and wellbeing, before, during or after treatment.
The charity explores areas such as diet, exercise, relationships and managing stress, through free courses, one-to-one therapies, groups, a Treatment Support Clinic and national helpline.
One of the delicious recipes in the book is for a Sweet Potato & Spinach Frittata, take a look below for the full recipe:
1 medium sweet potato, sliced
1 medium red onion, sliced
100g baby spinach or shredded chard or spinach leaves
Basil, parsley or herbs of choice
Salt, black pepper
Heat oven to 200C, Gas 6. Place potato and onion slices on oven tray, drizzle with olive oil, season and roast for 15-20 mins until tender.
