January can be a trying month. After all, we guilt ourselves about not quite sticking to our new years resolutions, the weather doesn’t improve and we no longer have Christmas marked in the diaries to look forward to. However, a filling, satisfying and healthy meal does wonders for our energy and wellbeing. Why not try rustling up this firm favourite this coming week? We’re sure you’ll agree that it hits the nail on the head!
