Healthy Eating Activity: “Favourite Recipes”

Here’s an activity I wanted to share with you all from my Real World Wellness nutrition consulting business – it’s a great way to get the whole family involved in healthy eating and to make menu planning and cooking that much easier and more enjoyable!

Goal: Make cooking a breeze.

Gather up your favourite cookbooks (or online recipe websites and blogs). Make a goal to choose 20 recipes in total, including recipes that might just be floating around in your head (family favourites and easy go-to meals frequent this category). The only criteria for these recipes are that they must be ones you’ve already tried and enjoyed, and they should use ingredients that are nearly always in your kitchen.

Make a list of your top 20 favourite recipes that you’ve tried and tested, including the page number and cookbook it’s in to find it easily. Use this list to refer to at any time when you need to make a meal or menu plan but aren’t in the mood for cooking or searching for recipes! Stick it to your fridge so that it’s easily accessible.

Will you try this technique this week?

    This is s good idea. I sometimes flounder when it comes to dinner, specifically because my family doesn’t like the foods I eat. It’d be easy if it was just me and planning for myself, but cooking for people who I’m trying to wean off crap food is a challenge. I’ll try this!

    Most of us understand that in order to have a healthy life, we not only need to eat right, we also need to live in clean surroundings. However, when we think of our surroundings, most of us wander off to the community, city and wider environment. Very rarely do we think as our home as our surrounding. Yet, according to research, this is one of the most sensitive areas in our lives. We therefore need to learn how to keep our houses and compounds clean in order to keep our loved ones and ourselves safe.

    What a great idea, some times it’s so hard to think of things that all the family will enjoy without making the same kind of things every night. Will definitely be doing this and we should avoid wasting time thinking of what to make.
