We’re super excited to be partnering with Cancer Nutrition Expert Toral Shah from The Urban Kitchen. She is a health ambassador for World Cancer Research Fund and offers amazing nutritional advice, cooking classes and hosts events to help educate and bring awareness to the amazing health benefits which can come from adjusting your diet.
Toral has been working away in her urban kitchen, creating a range of carefully balanced seafood recipes from fresh Fishbox produce. We cannot wait to share the full range with you all, but if you’d like a sneak peek at the first release of recipes you can explore them here.
Why Toral began Urban Kitchen
Toral specialises in cancer prevention nutrition, the core value of The Urban Kitchen. She was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 29 and is passionate about helping people to prevent cancer by improving their nutrition and lifestyle. All her nutrition advice is based on scientific research and long term epidemiological studies. She originally went to medical school with a view to becoming an oncologist but soon found that this path wasn’t for her. With extra time on her hands, she learnt to cook with the best at Le Cordon Bleu cooking school whilst completing her BSc in Cell Biology. She then went on to complete her MSc in Nutritional Medicine, specialising in cancer and diabetes.
‘I’m passionate about real food which is delicious and nutrient dense.’
‘The majority of meals which people commonly eat from high street restaurants and supermarkets do not fulfill recommended daily allowances of vitamins and minerals– this means that you will be lacking in the protein, good fats or slow-release carbohydrates which your diet needs to cater for a busy lifestyle.’
‘I’m really excited to be working with Fishbox and to be creating a range of healthy recipes which taste amazing and utilise fresh, seasonal produce.’
The Urban Kitchen is a healthy food resource, teaching people to eat healthy and tasty food. They are passionate about real food that is sustainably produced, nutritious and delicious. All their recipes are innovative, packed with nutrients and makes the best of local, seasonal and organic produce.
