Eat more Mediterranean food!
It can often feel like if we want to eat healthy food, we can’t eat tasty food. Perhaps this could be all about to change. Angeliki specializes in promoting healthy diets, in particular, how we can eat more Mediterranean food to reduce our risk of disease. Angeliki has expertise in encouraging the uptake of the Mediterranean diet to non-Mediterranean populations; perfect for speaking to us Bristolians for the evening. Order a glass of wine and a bowl of olives and hear all about it.
