DELICIOUS NUTRITIOUS RECIPES: Lose weight, save money and get your five-a-day with these healthy and easy recipes. [Kindle Edition]
Good health is no lottery. More veggies, more fibre and less fat in your meals can help you stay fit and live longer, healthier lives.
We are constantly be told by the media to:
Eat less salt
Eat less sugar
Eat less fat
And it has been well documented that eating five or more fruit and vegetables a day is vital for good health.
But life is so hectic, we are always in a rush and so how do we do this?
The easiest way to reduce salt, sugar and fat is to cook meals yourself. Pre-prepared meals and processed foods are filled with bad fats, sugar and salt and if they say “LOW FAT”, then they are bound to have twice the sugar. Home cooked meals have a higher nutritional value, less salt, sugar and fat.
Plus, many of us have food allergies or may be gluten intolerant and so we need to know what is going into our meals.
So the purpose of this book is to give you recipes rich in vegetables and nutritional value and so you can be sure you are getting five a day at least. All my puddings contain at least one fruit as well.
The meals are delicious and fail safe, even kitchen novices can succeed.
The majority of meals freeze and keep well for the next day and so once you have made the effort you have a meal ready for another day or even two – this is where you can save time and money while still eating well.
Great for first timers as well as I keep all measurements simply and so as long as you have a pot, a frying pan and an oven proof dish you can make these meals.
There are 7 soups and 14 scrumptious salads; ideal for dieters and so packed with nourishment they can be had as a meal on their own.
Chicken, fish, meat and vegetarian dishes are included. Often I include vegan options. All soups, salads and many more meals are vegan or can be vegan adapted.
There are treat meals for the weekend and also inexpensive meals.
Go ahead and enjoy your food – love eating and be healthier at the same time.
A reviewer said:
“What a compelling introduction! Lisa shows WHY it is so much better to home-cook your meals than buy pre-prepared foods from the supermarket. Low fat means high sugar. And lots more reasons to get busy in the kitchen.
The index of recipes is over 3 pages long so you get tons of good ideas here for all kinds of dishes, both mains and desserts.
Options? Indeed. Lisa even gives vegetarian options such as replacing chicken breast with cashew nuts. And coconut milk as a lower fat option to coconut cream.
Measurements are provided in tablespoons/teaspoons and millilitres (mls). Temperatures are given in degree F.
Recommended. Your family will love you for it.”
