HEALTHY LIVING: Home Cooked Meals

For those of you that don't live in the UK...lucky you! It's supposed to be Summer and this week has just been filled with rain! Thankfully this weekend has been a little bit better.
This weeks healthy living post is all about my favourite topic...food. I love food and I know lot of people do too! My friend mentioned that she never has a cooked meal. I know I'm blessed having Teddy cook for me almost every day, people these days just don't have time to get in the kitchen straight after work so prepackaged and frozen foods are the easy answer. 

Many of these packaged foods are high in salt and even sugar which isn't great for your health. It's even worse when you're dieting and have no time to cook. Many supermarkets have 'low fat' or 'reduced calorie' ready meals which look good for you but are also packed with sugar and salt. I recently learnt that 'low fat' meals normally have a high sugar count so it end up not being great for you anyway!!

I know buying fresh and natural food from the supermarket is ridiculously expensive. Buying lunches and dinner as well as stuff for juicing these last couple of weeks have made my bank balance take a beating but I honestly feel a lot healthier, more alert and I feel less bloated after I eat. I've lost four pounds in the last couple of weeks and feel so much better for it.

I thought I'd show you some of the gorgeous food Teddy has made for me this week. Let me know in the comments if you'd like me to write down some recipes and I'll get him to do a guest post one day!

Sweet potato mash, sweet chilli salmon and broccoli 

Turkey meatballs, sweetcorn, asparagus, and cubed sweet potatoes




Vegetable stir fry and sweet chilli beef



Vegetable stir fry with Chinese style chicken. Shush I was naughty with some prawn crackers!

    1. I love sweet potato, but hate when you have to pay extra for it in restaurants. Awesome, there might be a recipe blog up soon!
