Chorizo, Pepper & White Beans

Another simple & tasty dish for when you just need some meat!

Time : 10-15 minutes


Noggin Fix

Chorizo has 25%* vitamin B-6 and 33% vitamin B-12, and white beans give you 20% magnesium, 40% manganese & 16% B-6.  The dried herbs and spices add B-6, manganese & vitamin E – so this dish helps if you have insomnia, exhaustion & dizziness or co-ordination issues.  It will also help depression & anxiety a bit too.
*Percentages are of your Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA).
