    When you're living with a terminal illness or caring for someone with a terminal illness, your time and energy are always important and it's also a good idea to look after yourself.

    I'll start things off with a link to one of my favourite easy meals, Aubergine Curry.

    It's from Nigel Slater's book Eat which is full of simple and easy meals that take about 30 mins to prepare and cook.

    So what are your favourites?

    Good call on the curry Mark, but Nigel Slater annoys me.

    Here's mine 

    Sweet potato and spinach curry


    1 tablespoon olive oil 

    2 red onions, thinly sliced 

    2 large cloves of garlic, finely chopped 

    1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger 

    2 green chillies, thinly sliced 

    1 teaspoon ground coriander 

    1 teaspoon ground cumin 

    1 teaspoon black mustard seeds 

    1 heaped teaspoon turmeric 

    800g (1¾ lb) sweet potato, diced with skins left on 

    375ml (13 fl oz) vegetable stock 

    150g (5 oz) spinach, coarsely chopped 

    Large handful of fresh coriander leaves, coarsely torn 

    1 tablespoon toasted flaked almonds


    1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and cook the onion, garlic, ginger, and chilli.

    2. When the onion has softened, add all the spices and heat until they become fragrant.

    3. Add the sweet potato and stock and simmer for about 15–20 minutes until the sweet potato is soft.

    4. At this point add the spinach.

    5. Once the spinach has wilted, the curry is ready to serve with coriander leaves, topped with flaked almonds.

    I love a good quick stir-fry this time of year with all the green peas and asparagus in season - a bit of coconut oil, some sesame seeds and instant nutritious food in an instant - If you are looking for a bit of protein - how about a baked omelette/crustless quiche:
