With 74% of the population having felt 'overwhelmed or unable to cope' at some point in the past year, it seems as though we have reached peak-stress in the UK. Thankfully, there are things we can do to help manage this. In this article we speak to the founders of some of our favourite brands about the stress-reducing rituals they live by.

  Flatbreads topped with spinach and egg

This is our take on a florentine pizza. Instead of the traditional pizza base we use flatbreads made from chickpea (gram) flour, which is coarser than normal flour and has a distinct nutty flavour that tastes, unsurprisingly, a lot like chickpeas. The bright green topping is made from spinach and butter beans, with a baked egg to finish.

Nutrition & productivity in the workplace

A good diet nourishes the body and supplies it with the essential nutrients required to function properly whilst also optimising energy levels. When you don’t give your body what it needs, overall wellbeing begins to suffer, energy levels are compromised, and this can all impact on how productive you are across the day. Rob Hobson explains what we should be consuming to boost our productivity and outlines a day on a plate for optimum efficiency.
