Healthy eating made easy

Recently, a friend of mine said to me that she was very concerned about what she eats between Christmas and New Year. We should all be far more concerned with what we eat between New Year and Christmas!

If we can develop a habit of healthy portion sizes and wise food choices, then we will all feel and look a whole lot better. This is where I hope I can be of help to busy people leading hectic lives.

Each week I will supply five main meal recipes, and a shopping list to go with it.
I'm only supplying five recipes so there are two days when you can:- eat out /let someone else do the cooking/just have baked beans on toast. Or you can use up fridge contents or make a family favourite.
I hope your family will find some new favourites among my recipes.

The shopping list assumes that you have nothing in the fridge, freezer or pantry, so you will need to go through it to check which items you still need to buy.
You will need to go through each recipe, too, to check for family food allergens - if you make changes to a recipe, make sure that you remember to apply those changes on the shopping list. The list is colour coded (and labelled, in case you only want to print in black), with the recipe names at the top, also colour coded and labelled. You may also need to scale the quantities up or down, depending on how many you are feeding.

Please visit again, I will put up the first week's shopping list and recipes next Monday (21st December) so you can print off a copy and be ready to start a healthier lifestyle in the New Year.

In the meantime, please leave a comment, so I know someone found me!
And suggestions are always welcome.
