Achalasia Awareness Month
Achalasia is a rare disorder that makes it difficult for food and liquid to pass from the swallowing tube connecting your mouth and stomach (esophagus) to the stomach. Food may feel as it is stuck in the esophagus after eating, this can cause choking or coughing and may lead to chest infections if the food goes back down the wrong way and into your lungs. Regurgitation also occurs as the food has nowhere to go except upwards. As a result of food not passing into the stomach and difficulty swallowing, less food is ingested and it is common to lose weight. There are treatments to help with the symptoms of Achalasia but no actual cure and the exact cause of Achalasia is still not understood.

This recipe was made with ingredients from our first @oddboxldn fruit and veg delivery this week. Check them out as the fruit and veg they deliver is basically everything that supermarkets would not accept due to wrong shape, wrong size or any imperfections you can think of. We have been enjoying the wonky fruit and veg all week and made the breakfast loaf with the butternut squash delivered in the box. You can easily substitute the squash with pumpkin too for a Halloween treat. This is Butternut Squash Loaf Cake recipe is full of wholesome goodness and is delicious with our Everyday Breakfast Tea!
