Calories are a measure of the amount of energy in food and drink. Your weight depends on the balance between how much energy you consume and how much energy you use up. If you eat or drink more than you use you can gain weight. If you don’t eat enough you can lose it.
On average as a nation it seems we’re consuming too much saturated fat. Eating too much can increase your cholesterol, which is a risk factor for heart disease. Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Fibre is classed as a carbohydrate and you should aim to eat 30g fibre each day. Eating plenty of fibre is good for your digestive health and is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.

- Cook the pasta according to pack instructions, then drain.
- Meanwhile, add the oil to a pan and fry the tomatoes for 1-2 minutes, then stir in the remaining ingredients and pasta, heating until the rocket has wilted. Serve immediately.
- Serve with freshly grated hard cheese (e.g. Parmesan) sprinkled on the top, or try using different shapes of pasta (e.g. spaghetti), or replace the tuna with canned salmon.
