Slow Cooked food is soooooo easy and soooo delicious and sooooo nutritious. If you have kids who are fussy with veggies, they should love it too
Last weekend I whipped up this little beauty . My youngest, Lewis (age 7) said (in true Simon Cowell style) – “I don’t like Daddy’s Casserole, I love it!”
Have a go at making it
Serves 4-6 people
- 1kg of free range, organic chopped lamb shoulder (use Daylesford farm – Ocado)
- 5 streaky bacon pieces, chopped
- 2 medium sized chopped carrots
- Butternut squash peeled and chopped into chunks
- Peeled and sliced onion
- Sliced Yellow peppers
- 1 litre of organic Lamb stock (I use Kallo stock cubes, if I haven’t made my own).
- Flour tablespoon.
- Salt and pepper
- How to cook;
- Heat butter in a large casserole pot, on the hob.
- In a bowl, coat lamb shoulder pieces with flour, salt and pepper.
- Then transfer lamb to casserole pot.
- Once lamb is brown, add all the veggies and bacon to the lamb. Cook for another 5 minutes.
- The add all the lamb stock and bring to the boil.
- Being down to a simmer.
- Cover casserole pot and put in oven around 150 deg Celsius or gas mark 4.

I was very impressed by the expertise of everyone at the clinic. Runs pretty much like clockwork. The reception staff are really friendly and always manage to find an appointment that suits me. My physiotherapist Keval was very friendly and professional. He approached my injury with sympathy and reassurance. I have only attended two sessions and already seeing an improvement in my pain and mobility thankfully. Keval was also able to provide me with exercises that would strengthen my muscles and prevent further injury. Great facilities all round, highly recommend them.

Honestly cannot be more impressed with the service at physio4life. Ive had chronic back pain from such a young age. Had multiple different specialists help me with little progress but i was recommended by a friend to go and see keval. Not only was his advice gold. But honest and reliable. His treatments had me back at work full of life. He even found the true cause of my pain which no one was able to do. So not only just treating or managing the pain but he also has prevented any future reoccurence. Great service. Highly recommend !

I cannot recommend this place highly enough, I’ve have been suffering serious lower back pain for a couple of months now from a life time of physically abusing my body… I phoned up on Sunday morning and I was able to get a session with James in the afternoon, he gave me effective treatment and follow up exercises that has helped relieved the pain and increase mobility. I will return for further treatment... Awesome job James! Thank you, Sean.

I cannot recommend physio4life and its staff enough. I have been treated for both Achilles problems and a dislocated shoulder over the past few years and each time I have been impressed by the expertise of the physios. The clinic is in a great location and the facilities are excellent. The reception staff are really friendly and always manage to find an appointment early morning or in the evening to fit in with work.

Being a sporty family we need the use of a good physio and have been using Physio4life for over 10 years. They have excellent facilities great location and more importantly brilliant physios. My children and myself have benefited hugely from their expertise. I would highly recommend.

Really professional, and the team always have my best interest and put my health and recovery first. Vicky Pitcher is absolutely awesome & insiightful, and I always feel much better after visiting her for my back injury.

I visited physio4life for a sports massage and highly recommend them. I saw Izabela for a shoulder pain I had for the longest time, and she was able to help me after my very first treatment ! The reception team were great and really friendly, my whole experience was definitely 5 stars. Thanks again !

One of the best clinics I've been to. I've had issues with hypermobile EDS for years and managed to mess up my back this time around. I was booked in immediately with the osteopath Roxane who, aside from quickly sorting my back pain, was incredibly friendly and provided me with a lot of information as to how best to manage my hypermobility. I would 100% recommend this clinic and would certainly return again.
17:32 16 Apr 18
Great sports massage. Felt much better even after one. Looking forward to booking a second one

I was referred here by my private health care provider for a lower back sports injury... my physio, Stuart knew exactly what he was talking about and reassured me we can get me back to playing netball and create a plan to prevent this injury from reoccurring. Only had my initial assessment and already have exercises to work on and advise on what I can and can not do whilst in recovery. Managed to get an appointment same day and my follow up just a few days later. Bonus they are open late and at weekends!!!! I would recommend this to all my friends!

Victoria is very professional, hard working, friendly and helpful. After just one session and following the recommended exercises the pain in my knee significantly subsided. I would like to thank Victoria again for being so brilliant and helpful.

Convenient evening appointments, and intelligent professional and friendly treatment from Victoria that sorted out my headaches with a couple of appointments. 2 other family members have used this practice and also been extremely impressed.

Best Physio Clinic & Sports Massages in London. I have been visiting Physio4Life for around 6 years and have had several physio treatments for back or leg issues which have always been really helpful. I also have regular sports massages just for my own wellbeing because they really help take away the tension built up by sitting in an office all day and I find them so relaxing. I have tried other clinics in London but quite frankly I have never found a clinic that is as professional and convenient to visit. All the therapists are highly trained and skilled and I think this clinic is another great reason to live in Putney!

I was having headaches every day, was in a really bad place. Saw Hugo for a few sessions and the relief was enormous. The headaches subsided, I felt great. And what's best, I've been to physio's before where you feel as if there's no end to the tunnel, you'll always be going back and paying more money to get sessions every week for the rest of your life. But that wasn't how things work here. From the beginning there was a clear path to recovery, there was always an end goal - To relieve the headaches and give me the tools I needed to ensure they don't come back. Once that goal was achieved, Hugo said there was no need to come back unless something changed or I needed help. I really value that approach. Plus, Hugo is a super nice guy, always helps.

I was experiencing neck pain after a netball injury, which was preventing me from training/ playing. After being in pain for over a week, I went to see Hugo who was absolutely brilliant. He listened and assessed my injury and with his techniques I was over 50% recovered after just one session. Thanks Hugo for fixing my neck injury - I am so glad to be back playing netball!! :)

This place has completely saved me! A classical musician, I was forced to pull out of a concert midway through due to unexplained loss of feeling in my arm. I managed to get through to the wonderful receptionist at 9 30pm on a Friday night, who set me up with an appointment at 1pm the next day. I am now having regular appointments with Keval, who not only diagnosed me at the first appointment, has me back playing and performing again but also calmed me down with his professionalism and reassurance. Would recommend without reserve!

I first visited Physio4Life in August after hurting my lower back. I rang in the morning and managed to get an appointment the same day. I saw Hugo who has helped so much! When I first went it hurt to walk and I could not bend my back at all without pain. I have seen Hugo 8 times now and my lower pain is so much better - I no longer have any pain. I have also just started Pilates with Stasia to strengthen my back which I have found really good. I would definitely recommend Physio4Life is anyone.
15:03 15 Nov 17
Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Did my back in due to bad posture at work, culminating in losing full mobility. Phoned on a Saturday and got an appointment early Monday morning. Was seen by Hugo and his level of service was outstanding. Very professional whilst being very friendly. Over 4 sessions gave me effective treatment with follow up exercises that have got me back to fighting form!

December 2016 I had a terrible fall and severely hurt my ankle, after xrays, boot and crutches for an extended period of time I did make a good recovery, however I re injured it shortly after, not by doing much I hasten too add. I found myself in incredible pain and back on crutches and completely out of action! James helped me with my ankle by doing tapping , physio and prescribing me with some exercises with a resistance bands. I also had a bunch of others to do. Very rapidly I was pain free then after a few more sessions the tapping was removed and my ankle was mostly functional, just rather stiff. Now I am a good ankle shape, I dont even think about it, the stiffness went and I am completely pain free!! I still do my exercises as I accept it is an injury I will have to manage. James is an extremely knowledgeable and gifted physio who specialises in knees, toes and ankles!!! Thank-you so much James! I am booking an overland trip to Africa now.

A friend recommended me Physio4Life for sever back pain that I started having in the end of July. I was treated by Victoria who diagnosed my condition as cauda equina syndrome and urged me to immediately go to A&E. Thanks to her timely diagnosis and the amazing treatment at the hospital I am still able to walk, as this condition can quickly leave someone paralyzed if it's not surgically treated. Victoria has been treating me for my post-surgery recovery even since and has helped me to steadily get stronger over time. Both her and Hugo who also treated me for a short period are extremely knowledgeable and caring, and will patiently explain all the rehabilitation exercises. Would definitely recommend going there!
20:01 25 Sep 17
Highly recommend both Victoria pitcher and Chris Hughes. Both are kind, understanding and knowledgeable physios who make you feel at ease and get to the bottom of the issue and seek to treat the cause. Future patients you are in good hands!!
13:11 17 Sep 17
I would highly recommend Physio 4 Life. I needed physio for tendonitis in my foot and Hugo has been great. His impressive knowledge, treatment and range of home strengthening exercises have helped my foot enormously and gave me back the confidence I had lost when I was injured. Thank you!
12:25 04 Sep 17
Hugo really helped me with my back. He fixed my initial problem and identified other areas for improvement and gave me the exercises that would help me. My back is now better (and still improving) than it was before my injury. I won't hesitate to go back with any other problem. Thanks.
07:02 08 Aug 17
I cannot speak highly enough of James. He's working so hard on fixing my running injury and getting me back to where I want to be. He's such a lovely, funny person who absolutely puts you at ease. The receptionists are also great, they remember who you are when you arrive and work efficiently. I would absolutely recommend anyone dealing with sports injury or looking for a recovery training plan go here.
10:54 06 Aug 17
I cannot recommend Physio4Life and Hugo highly enough! After several months of treatment following knee surgery, Hugo's attitude and confidence in my recovery made any slow progress that much easier to deal with. It was always a pleasure to be greeted by such a friendly reception team as well and, to be honest, I'm a little sad I'm back to full health and don't get to catch up with the great team there anymore!!
07:30 28 Jul 17
Twice weekly seshs here since March on an arduous recovery from challenging shoulder surgery. James is a fab and understanding physio, reception team (who always seem very happy & engaged) are superbly organised & highly efficient, quite the best I've experienced in the world of surgeries. Totally recommended.
15:57 12 Jul 17
James rehabilitated my ankle following a complex arthroscopy. His knowledge is really impressive, always knowing or quickly discovering the cause of pains and always ready with solutions. He was recommended by the surgeon and it is easy to see why. Now back long-distance running.
10:33 10 Jul 17
I cannot recommend this place enough! I had to be referred twice (back pain and then a very painful knee injury). Hugo took such good care of me and is such a cracking character that he made everything feel so easy and I was always confident in his approach and his treatment and recovery plan. Above all it was very effective! I have honestly never felt better in my life! Also the staff at reception is the nicest - they even remember people's names! Oh and there's free tea and coffee in reception :) so now I'm pain free and it's all thanks to Hugo! Thank you!
15:49 27 Jun 17
Had a great experience with the Physio 4 Life team over the past year. Everyone was always friendly and helpful. A special thank you to Hugo, he did everything he could possibly do to resolve my plantar fasciitis problem. I'd highly recommend them!
10:51 21 Jun 17
I've had a great experience with Physio4Life. Their physiotherapist Hugo Chinchilla has solved my lower back pain within 5 sessions. An excellent and very friendly professional I'd definitely recommend to anyone.

James has been instrumental in making sure I return to play as soon as possible, being a professional netball athlete my feet are hugely important. James was able to diagnose various issues with my feet, and clearly explain how these could be modified with the orthotics he would mould for me. He went above and beyond to provide the best service possible and I am eternally grateful.
10:21 03 Mar 17
I use physio4life on two counts - James is a brilliant physiotherapist, knowledgeable, skilful (and humorous); and Dan runs an older persons' circuit training exercise class - great fun, and as accessible or challenging as you want to make it
