In the 6 years I’ve been managing my depression I have found several foods that make a big difference to my health and I’m sharing them with you.

Why Stock is So Good for You
I cook with stock every week because it makes everything taste good and is really nutritious. Making your own stock is easy and therapeutic.
Baked Brisket Penne
I always keep some beef brisket aside after slow roasting a joint for Sunday lunch so that I can make this deeply delicious baked pasta dish.
A slow cooked beef brisket is Sunday Dinner in one pot. This is my go to Sunday roast if we’re going to be out for most of the day then return to the glorious smell of dinner.
Easy Butter Chicken
My Easy Butter Chicken has lots of flavour, no fuss and is mild enough for the kids to enjoy.
Chinese Beef Noodle Soup
Few meals make me feels as good as Beef Noodle Soup. The Chinese aromatics are so tasty and add even more nutrition to this dish. It’s a great way to use leftover roast beef.
Steak and Pomegranate Salad
This is a dark and delicious salad. It’s bursting with iron rich salad leaves and tender steak. The pop of the pomegranate seeds adds a great texture and sweetness.
Kid-Friendly Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry
A stir-fry is such a useful mid-week dish. It’s fast and delicious and this Beef and Broccoli recipe is kid-friendly with less salt than lots of Beef and Broccoli recipes.
Brussel Sprout Salad and Smoked Salmon
Raw Brussel Sprouts become this incredible salad with just a few dressing ingredients. I serve it with smoked salmon because they pair beautifully.
Simple Steamed Cabbage
So many people over-cook cabbage and ruin it. This beautiful family of iron-packed leaves is so easy to cook with just a little prep, a dash of water and a sprinkle of salt.
