The contraceptive implant (Implanon NXT) is one of the most effective contraceptives available. Along with the hormonal and copper IUDs, it is classified as Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) which are recommended as first-line options for all people choosing to use contraception.
SHINE SA wish to alert clinicians to important updated information about Implanon NXT procedures following an update of the product information in January 2020. These changes have been made to avoid the large blood vessels and nerves within and around the sulcus between biceps and triceps and reflect published research.
SAMESH are still unable to hold their monthly cooking class for PLHIV and older LGBTIQ+ folk in person due to COVID-19, so Paul has tested another recipe for community members to try at home: a Rainbow Veggie Slice.
Paul says: “This recipe has health and vegetarians in mind! It is slightly unusual in that it features a breakfast cereal as the secret ingredient – but don’t be put off, as you can’t taste it and it is a useful source of added fibre and a good binding agent for the ingredients!”
“The recipe suggests ‘stir fry’ veggies, but you can use any veggies of your choice”, says Paul. “And for those who can’t live without meat – add some bacon pieces or cook some bacon to have on the side.”
Who doesn’t love a recipe from mum? This week we bring you Pam’s Pumpkin & Corn Soup – made by Paul’s mum especially for our recipe posts!
This recipe is a winter favourite that Pam makes whenever there is an excess of pumpkin in the vegie patch.
Pam is an old school home cook, but is always willing to test her skills trying something new – and come winter it is all about cooking warming meals and soups.
Pam is an avid fan of Masterchef and the Food Network, and she has a cupboard filled with recipe books old and new – which makes Paul’s life easier when he’s looking for a recipe to bring us for the SAMESH cooking class presents series! We continue to present recipes & tips while our face-to-face cooking classes for PLHIV and older LGBTIQ+ folk are unable to proceed.
NOTE: If you are a vegetarian, you can swap vegie stock for the chicken stock. Spring Gully Worcestershire Sauce is vegetarian and does not contain anchovies.
SAMESH are stuck unable to their monthly cooking class for PLHIV and older LGBTIQ+ folk in person, so here is a new recipe from Paul for community members to try at home: patties made from roast vegetables.

Paul says: “these are healthy, vegetarian-friendly, yummy, and only take minutes to prepare and cook!”
This week, in In lieu of SAMESH’s face to face cooking classes for PLHIV and older LGBTIQ+ folk, Paul has worked on a soup recipe for community members to try at home. What better in this weather than a warming and nourishing bean soup?!
Paul says: “This week’s recipe is a winter warmer with a healthy angle- it’s perfect for vegetarians too. It is a nourishing bean soup with a rich tomato flavour: and like all soups, you can change the ingredients to suit your tastes or what is in your pantry or fridge.”
