One of my aims this summer was to ensure my family began to eat better.
I realised that over the past year I had gotten so busy I was making little effort with he presentation of their food and that I was relying too much on pre-made food without really giving enough thought to nutritional value.
I have introduced some new meals to our family this summer and I have more care of how I have presented them so they are more appealing.
Would you like to see what I have been making?
My food looked betters straight away on this pretty, patterned and colourful crockery. I love its mismatch /coordination, it looks casual but so pretty too.
Even a simple veggie burger can look good on these plates and I have been making sure to add lots of colour with fruit and veg to even a simple dish like this. It is so easy and makes such a difference to the nutritional content of the meal.
We are all veggie in my little family and I have always missed the traditional ‘Sunday dinners’ of my youth. So reinstating this tradition with a ‘quern’ roast has been fun and now we always gather for a special Sunday meal.
We ave been making an effort to have a cooked breakfast together on a Saturday to mark the day out as special. My husband has dreamed up this gorgeous fried potato and egg recipes packed with nutritious veggies. I cannot tell you how tasty it is and such a treat late morning on a Saturday.
I rise very early in the week and was not giving myself a moment to eat breakfast and start the day well. As part of my campaign to eat well I have changed this. I now have little bowl of granola and fruit each morning and just give myself a little chance to pause before hurtling headlong into the day. I feel so much better for it.
So just a little effort and some simple changes have made meals so much healthier and mealtimes much more social and interesting.
I think my campaign to have us all eating well is coming along nicely.
