Thermomix® Tutorials – Nourishing Healing Food

Lydia Foong was diagnosed with stage 2B Triple Negative Breast Cancer, a more aggressive form of Breast Cancer, after discovering a lump in her breast during a self-examination. Thanks to early detection, she was able to undergo treatment and a mastectomy to remove the cancer cells.

However, during her treatment, Lydia experienced side effects that made it difficult to eat and cook. To help her during this time, she relied on her Thermomix®. The Thermomix® was especially helpful when she was too tired to cook and needed to prepare nutritious meals. Even while resting, Lydia was able to put the Thermomix® to work and ensure that she had healthy meals during her recovery. 💚

Watch Lydia show us some of her nutritious recipes that helped her journey! ✨
