    Well I have just spent the whole morning in the kitchen cooking.

    One of my lifestyle changes I made after LL was no more processed food. Everything from scratch. Salads, bread, stirfrys, dips, sauces, etc. That way I know exactly what goes in it.

    Its time consuming...I tend to spend a good part of one day on the weekend cooking for the week ahead. But its so nice when its done, and then I have a fridge full of lovely healthy choices for the week.

    Today I made:

    Broccoli Salad with a Peanut Satay dressing- full of red pepper, raisins, peanuts, onion, carrot and sesame seeds - dressing is a very small bit of peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame and olive oil


    Lemon Thyme and mixed herb Huommus - made with chick peas, garlic, lemon thyme, basil, and rosemary and balsamic vinegar

    Tofu and Courgette Stir Fry - with lots of onions, celery, red pepper, yellow pepper, garlic, bean sprouts and soy sauce and a little sesame oil for flavour

    Huge mix of green salad.

    Still to go, Salsa and a Quorn Curry.

    I love when I am done, and I get such satisfaction from seeing a fridge full of good stuff.

    Hope you all are haivng a good day!

    Going to the outlaws for a BBQ! So nice to be able to partake now, and looking forward to some meat. SInce I have been working nights, I haven't been able to conveniently have any meat or fish. Yum yum!

    I really think you need to write a dummys guide for me for any sauces you make. I don't want to buy shop bought anymore but have no idea where to start!
