Eating properly is one of the biggest hurdles when you’re feeling low, so these recipes (dubbed ‘depressipes’ by Jack) give you everything you need in a dish; they are inexpensive, simple and filling, so that cooking and eating a nutritious meal doesn’t seem like an impossible task.

The seventy-five comforting recipes in this collection include Quick and Spicy Noodles, Recalibration Supper, Jaffa Cake Mug Pudding and Hot Apple Pies.

In this handy little paperback cookbook, Jack shares friendly and creative tips for making a little go a long way and for using store-cupboard ingredients – perfect for when you’re feeling overwhelmed by whatever is on your plate, but still want to take care of yourself.

‘This book will be a friend to you when life is hard’ – Matt Haig, author of Reasons to Stay Alive
