We've got the Food to boost you Mood!


January has come, time for three of the most dared Ds of the year: Detox, Diet, Depression. Everyone is feeling the blues, post-christmas stuffing has provided you with those extra few pounds to shred and here we are to help. We've got the food to boost your mood!

First of all, the king of all fish: salmon. A great source of the energy-boosting goodness that is essential omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for energy production, brain activity and circulation. On a side note, it’s also great for maintaining heart health!

Legumes: lentils and other legumes, like hummus chickpeas, help stabilize blood glucose levels and prevent those crashes you’ve struggled through so many times before. By incorporating our lentils soup into your meals, you will stretch your energy levels that little bit further and avoid the slump altogether.

Eggs: an absolutely awesome source of iron and protein! They are also naturally rich in B-vitamins which are responsible for converting food into energy. Eggs are sure to give you a sustainable hit of energy which will last throughout the whole day. Try our quinoa mini burgers as an example!

Goji berries have been used for literally thousands of years in Chinese medicine to help increase energy and enhance the release of hormones. They increase the body’s ability to handle stress and support healthy mood, mind and memory- all while giving you the get-up-and-go energy you need to get through the day! And they taste pretty good too. What more could you want?

Oh yes, cocoa. Dark Chocolate is what you need. Sometimes you need that little hit of sweetness. And there is nothing wrong with that if you do it the right way! By allowing yourself a little treat every now and then will stop any sugar binges in the future. Nibbling on our brownie or semifreddo will help the body by providing an excellent source of iron and magnesium.

Happy superfood January everyone then!

Togetherness the Rose & Mary way

Apparecchiare La Tavola Di Natale

With the Festive season approaching and - for those of you who are linked to the American tradition - turkey leftovers in the fridge (which btw is an incredibly lean animal protein!), we are getting ready for the Christmas Table the Rose & Mary way.

Rule Number One is simple: we are together, a team, a group of people who between London and Milan try to create menus for you to be together, a team and a group of people. In fact, we are reuniting tonight as a team to brainstorm, think, come up with new ideas, listen to yours. 

Now, with Christmas and the festive season approaching, is there a healthy way to face it? Let's start by following rule number one and its motto: Sharing is Caring. What can you share out of our Menu, that is made with love, gourmet and yet still healthy? 

Inspired by the Middle Eastern tradition of Mezze, our Hot and Spicy Marinated Chicken Mezze Platter is perfect to eat together. Nutritious, lean and rich in healthy proteins. Feel like Italian? There is nothing that says Christmas like a Lasagna, especially if gluten free and made out of organic sheet of pasta. Would you like to be original and surprise your guests? It's time for the mini burgers, a quinoa-based nutritious option to pick and choose, perfect for a standing party where you need some sort of canapés. 

Remember: we never promote starving or drastic dieting. It's a matter of balancing the ingredients and - most importantly - sharing them with you. Together, the Rose & Mary way
