♥️ At your 30 minute appointment we will be able to show you your heart health and - if neccessary - suggest very simple, pleasant, and low cost ways to improve your heart health (think: "take omega 3", "eat a piece of chocolate-a-day" type of interventions).

❤️ The experience requires no blood tests and is similar to taking a traditional blood-pressure arm-cuff reading.

❤️ This test is confidential, and your results will not be shared with any third party without your express permission.

Eggs any way, anytime

Emma Reporter from Stuff Cooks

During lockdown, there was no leftover my family wouldn’t crack an egg onto and eat for breakfast: leftover mash, leftover chicken pot pie, the last dribbles of a batch of ham hock soup and once, a lamb chop.

Eventually “Eggs & Anything” infiltrated dinner and our standards dropped even lower: the skillet was dumped on the table along with a pile of forks, a few side plates - maybe, a tea towel as a napkin for the 8-year-old with the large lockdown appetite and away we went.

Lazy egg suppers have hung around in Alert Level 2 - minus the dinner dregs and skillet table service, and with the addition of an actual recipe: Turkish eggs, spicy red shakshuka and spiced bread egg in a hole.

Eggs, dukkah and garlic fried spinach is another favourite combo in our house. What's your favourite?
