Cook with care

The Great Wake Up! week 3 experiment

Like Comment

I loved this experiment! Having a young family, multiple jobs and endless hobbies and activities to get to, I was always a convenience kind of cook. Opening a jar is easier than cooking from scratch, cheaper than buying fresh ingredients and less time consuming than making my own wrong can you be?! This might be cheating slightly but I joined Slimming World back in September and my cooking style was transformed. Once you've grasped a few recipes and picked up some key ingredients (slightly more expensive than jars but they last MONTHS, not kidding) it's plain sailing. I know exactly what I'm eating and feeding my family; my skin is more radiant and I am enjoying more culinary delights. Home made food is so much nicer than processed foods; it even gives takeaways a run for their money (and can save you a mint too). If you cook in bulk you can always freeze a few batches so the next time it's a case of defrosting and heating up if you don't enjoy the cooking side of things and with no effort at all. I've found a new passion for cooking, I find new recipes to try each week and I'm having help from the children and the OH.

Much love and best wishes,
