{WIAT} plus Giveaway



As most of you know since I returned from my vacation I made a decision to start cooking again and no more takeaways or eating out every night. This is the best decision I have made in a very long time, I am enjoying cooking so much that its become 2nd nature to me. Today I made my very first lasagne and its yummy I have enough left to carry to work tomorrow. I also baked my first cookies (kinda just mixed things up and added some raspberries and they are too yummy.
I have noticed it is not as hard as I thought to eat healthy, it is so simple and I do not really have to spend an arm and a leg to buy healthy foods. I have noticed Sainsbury actually stock healthy foods on reasonable prices, I have always depended on Aldi and lidl for healthy but cheap foods.

Breakfast -->  I am now a changed person, I eat breakfast at home before I leave for work and if I am rushing I pack either the granola with fruits or the porridge with banana, raisins and honey.

So great that you're cooking at home so much now - I started doing 5-night weekly meal planning last year and it was life changing. I now love cooking and it's become such a ritual! If you ever need meal planning inspiration, hop over to Gloss and Coffee :)

Cooking your own food is the best way to go. That stew and salad look delicious!

 
At 12 November 2014 at 05:08 , Blogger Andi said...

You have so much more control when you make your own meals at home - on portions, on ingredients - it makes a world of difference. I say that, but my hubby is the one that does all the cooking!

 
At 12 November 2014 at 09:37 , Blogger Miranda Myrabev said...

Its the only way I think and thank you.

 
At 12 November 2014 at 09:37 , Blogger Miranda Myrabev said...

Its even better that hubby cooks for you, I am surprised by how much portion control I have I didnt realise it until last night when I was cooking meals for the rest of the week.

Oatmeal always looks and smells so good but I just can't get into it! I might have to experiment to find the perfect combination.

 
At 12 November 2014 at 21:15 , Blogger Ayana Pitterson said...

Oooh girl, you have just inspired dinner tonight -- beef stew and salad (low carb for me is the game). This looks freaking AWESOME. Thanks for the inspiration. Congrats on you keeping up with the cooking and eating healthy.

Everything looks so amazing!!! I'm hungry now :) I need to be better about not eating out so much as well...it's just so hard!

 
At 13 November 2014 at 22:42 , Blogger Winter White said...

Looks good! I'm not a cook at all but this looks fairly simple

 
At 14 November 2014 at 08:08 , Blogger Anita said...

So great that you're getting back into cooking - I always find it so much more satisfying than just going out for dinner constantly!

 
At 14 November 2014 at 21:59 , Blogger lauriel said...

Yum! I enjoy cooking too~ :) As an alternative to honey, perhaps you might be interested in trying out maple syrup? The maple flavor is so perfect for fall for me, especially with some minced cooked apples/chunk applesauce. :9

I love cooking my meals too. I started getting upset stomachs all the time and since making my own meals they've virtually stopped!
