Many thanks to everyone who attended my sold-out talk at 12 Hay Hill on stress and professional burnout! I received great feedback from the audience and truly appreciated the support provided from Hay Hill. It's a lovely club.

It is always a rewarding experience to discuss and provide strategies for those who need to manage stress.

Pasta Sauce Magic

Eating good food should be a pleasure, not a burden.

That's why I am always looking for healthy and tasty convenience foods, that make cooking faster, easier and more enjoyable! One of my favourite magic ingredients is pasta sauce, which I love to use on pasta or rice, but also on steamed or baked fish, meat or vegetables.⠀

The problem is that all too often jarred sauces are laden with sugar and additives - even gourmet or organic ones! So I was ecstatic when I found in my local Marks & Spencer this delicious and incredibly well-priced sauce by Italian producer, La Malva Rosa.⠀

It's made with only THREE ingredients: tomatoes, Taggiasca olives (small black olives from the Liguria region) and extra virgin olive oil. And it TASTES AMAZING! You can seriously eat it straight out of the jar… But I suggest that you try to add a few spoonfuls to your roasted vegetables to boost flavour, healthy fats, vitamins and antioxidants. ⠀

** Food Fact: Tomatoes are an interesting exception to the rule that cooking food reduces micronutrients: lycopene is better absorbed when it has been heated, so tinned tomatoes are good for you. This powerful antioxidant is fat soluble - it's absorbed by the body in the presence of fats - which makes the olive oil & tomato pairing a perfect match! **
