·         Low Fat

·         Vegetarian

·         Low Sugar

·         Reduced Fat

·         High Protein

*though please remember, you will be the best person to know if something is suitable for you.

Salt has many detrimental effects on health by causing a rise in blood pressure, the consequence of which is Cardiovascular Disease (CVD), including strokes, heart attacks and heart failure.

Osteoporosis, which causes bones to more easily break, has been associated with a high salt intake.  The older population are at greater risk of osteoporosis because bones naturally become thinner with age.  Therefor, a reduction in salt intake is advisable for older people.
I’ve tried to keep the menu’s simple to allow for a variety of tastes and dietary requirements, all are high in nutrition and packed full of flavour.
