New Year’s Resolutions for your family in the Kitchen

Would you like to be more organised in the kitchen? Do you think your family could benefit from making healthier and more cost effective meal choices and creating a healthier lifestyle?

Get the whole family involved with these New Year’s Resolutions surrounding your kitchen:

1. Cook dinner more often – home cooked meals are usually healthier and a lot less expensive than restaurant meals. Put that new kitchen of yours to good use! Handy hints – get inspired with a new recipe each week, plan ahead, get groceries delivered to save time, find some go-to recipes you can learn from heart.

2. Pack your lunch – like eating out for dinner, buying lunch everyday gets expensive too. If you’re planning on being healthier this year you can stay on track by planning your lunches on a Sunday. Plan your leftovers to take and change things up so you don’t get bored.

3. Eat more greens – incorporate more greens into your smoothies, juices, salads, soups, eggs, casseroles.

4. Use your cookbooks – do you have a shelf of cook books in your kitchen? Instead of flocking straight to the internet, make a vow to use your cookbooks more in 2019. Handy hint – separate your cookbooks into two categories; weeknight and weekend cooking.

5. Get the family to pick out a different part of the world or culture once a month and cook a dinner around those traditions and flavours.
Bake bread together, it’s a great activity that the whole family can get involved with. There’s nothing better than a slice of warm homemade bread with warm butter.

6. Visit a farmers market on the weekend with the whole family. In this day and age of processed foods, learning where fresh ingredients come from is a terrific experience for the family and everyone can be involved in the grocery buying.

7. Make a meatless meal once a week, such as “Meatless Mondays”. This encourages the family to eat a variety of different foods.
