Healthy home cooking
I’m a big fan of healthy home cooking – well not so much the cooking but eating home cooked food.
I really do love home cooked meals, although I’m not exactly into cooking and definitely NOT great at it. I do try though.
I started cooking and baking from an early age because my Mum loved to cook and bake, she taught me everything I know…..but I don’t enjoy it, it’s just not my thing….but I have to eat so I do ha..
I did a course in nutritional therapy years ago and really enjoyed it..plus I felt quite proud of myself for achieving my diploma.
It’s really been very useful too for helping me get my health back on track..almost. And I annoy my daughter’s by going on and on at them to eat healthy…the importance and all that..you are what you eat!
I tend to cook in big batches now, then freeze for later dates, because now there’s only me and my hubby at home through the week. I can’t say I could be bothered to cook from scratch every week night.
Beef stew is one of my favourites yum! Recipe: organic diced beef, potatoes, carrots, onions, broccoli, spinach and gravey. You can put in what ever you like.. to your own tastes. I use a slow cooker because it’s easy and not likely I’d burn it ha..okay so I am well known for burning stuff. Sshh secret.
