Maintaining a healthy body weight is likely to reduce your risk of high blood pressure and heart disease both of which put you at greater risk of dementia. This low-calorie supper dish is inspired by the Mediterranean and includes tomatoes and olive oil, which form a key part of this diet. Research suggests the Mediterranean diet may reduce the risk of developing problems with memory and thinking.

• 4 large courgettes, peeled

• 3tbsp extra virgin olive oil

• 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

• ½ red chilli, finely chopped

• 1tbsp capers, rinsed

• 40g black olives, stoned and roughly chopped

• 100ml passata

• 2 tbsp tomato puree

Method:

  1. Set a large pan of water on the hob to boil.

  4. Add the chilli, olives and capers cooking for 1 minute.
  5. Add the passata and puree, cook for another 5 minutes then take off the heat and stir in the parsley.
