Nutrition Info

Feta cheese

Feta cheese is not only high in calcium, iodine and vitamin B12 but it’s a fermented food and therefore provides probiotic benefits, especially if you use the water it comes in too.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene which is a pokey antioxidant. Antioxidants are like bouncers at a night club, they go around finding stray electrons that are busy causing trouble in your body, and find them a love partner so they can both stay in and cuddle on the sofa.

Tomatoes are also a brilliant source of vitamin C, which supports skin and connective tissue health as well as immunity and iron absorption. The biotin in tomatoes is good for controlling blood sugar.

Good honest nutrition

One minute you’re young and cool, the next you’re getting excited about air fryers.
