I start this post with my thoughts to all the people who have been affected in America. Such a devastating time to millions of people and hope your all able to recover quickly.
This is what we are having this week as you can see we enjoy a variety I often eat veges and I will add veges like carrot to mince meals, Food can be so much fun. Finding a recipe and seeing how you can make it that bit healthier, or to just finding ways of adding more vegetables. Just remember we eat to live not live to eat, have fun get the family involved in cooking make it a real social occasion. Your body is having a party every time you eat, so why shouldn’t you..
I will give you links to websites for recipes or even write-up a recipe from my trusty recipe book,
I won’t be telling you nutritional information, and this is why, some people are just looking for inspiration, some people want to look at calories, fat, protein, some people just want to jazz their meals up with a bit of spice.
I am not a nutritionist, but what I am is a mother, that is on a mission to find recipes that makes eating a way of life that is fun for us but also that is good for the body.
Mexican Pork stir Fry
Honey Spice drumsticks
Meatballs and spaghetti
Fattouch with crispy lamb
Steamed fish parcels
Vegetable chorizo paella
Soup your choice
I usually have one soup a week this is a good way to get vegetables into us. This is minestrone, vegetable any kind, there are thousands out there, this week I am having onion soup. I always make a big pot of soup and I am able to freeze and then I have soup ready to have. Also check out recipes that you can buy and make more of and freeze and in portions that you can pull out like a ready meal, or partial ready meal.
Also if you are going to have salad try to make it fresh, I brought some deli salad from a supermarket, which is ok if you are in a hurry but fresh is best.
Hopefully you have had a good summer vege garden or you are just starting your summer one depending on where you are. Make the most of it.
