ANXIOUS: Sweet Lemon Chicken Stew w Rosemary & Sage

To be cooked and enjoyed when you’re feeling tense, nervous, 
or anxious about a situation or an upcoming event… 
Lemons act as a sedative for the nerves and the heart, providing a calming effect.  
It therefore helps to remove anxiety, nervousness, and tension. 
“When I turned two I was really anxious, because I’d doubled my age in a year.  
I thought – if this keeps up, by the time I’m six – I’ll be ninety!”  (Stephen Wright)
