My Jamie Oliver-inspired four hour lamb really is sublime. It is so ridiculously easy to prepare but it tastes amazing. This is the thing I cook most often.
in this time of uncertainty and questions around what might happen, a few suggestions for how to calm your fajizzle down and slow down that worry muscle. These are some things that work for me.

Broccoli Sauce is a revelation. Slowly braised over low heat makes the flavours incredibly mellow. This baby is a great nightshade-free alternative to tomatoes and broccoli is chock-full of vitamin C – a great immune fighter
Another of my mate, Em’s recipes from our time together at Conscious Autoimmunity.
Emma thinks this is her best recipe creation ever! It’s certainly one of the most requested. Perfect for when you’re short on time but after something über nutrient-dense and tasty.

Another offering from my good mate, Emma (formerly of The Bacon Mom) – speedy Instant Pot Beef Bourguignon!
Em’s special sauce is to create tasty, hearty and nutrient-dense fare, fast! She doesn’t have time to pfaff around. This is one of her most asked-for recipes!
You know me – always on the lookout for a new way to mitigate stress and calm the fajizzle down…
