Not Only Delicious, But Also Nutritious Because:

• The flavonoids and antioxidants found in spinach, in particular the antioxidant beta-carotene, has been shown in multiple studies to help combat cancers. Spinach also helps boost eye health and has strong anti-ageing properties.



• Use pre-cut mushrooms and a 1-2 drops of lemon oil instead of lemon zest to shorten prep time!

• Prep ingredients the night before (halve tomatoes, zest lemon and slice mushrooms) so all you’re doing in the morning is sautéing in a pan.
