As I sit down and write out my grocery list each week, Iâ€™m constantly asking myself â€śwhatâ€™s for dinner?â€ť
I hate being stuck around 5pm wondering what to cook, so I prefer to work out in advance what we are going to eat for dinner for the upcoming week, and therefore what I need to buy.
I am constantly searching for new ideas and inspiration for meals that are healthy and easy to make, using whole, natural ingredients, and donâ€™t require me to spend hours in the kitchen each night. I donâ€™t like to spend anymore than about 45 minutes preparing dinner each evening.
My cooking isnâ€™t fancy, itâ€™s really quite basic. In fact before I started on my â€śreal foodâ€ť journey, I barely knew how to cook, and my husband did most of the cooking! But bit by bit I have learned to cook, and in the process have learned to enjoy cooking. I find it very satisfying to plan our meals, shop for quality whole foods and create nourishing meals for my family.
I decided to create this website as a way of organizingÂ my recipes, andÂ to share my recipes in case there are others out there who want to cook quick, easy and nourishing meals for their family, but find themselves asking that eternal question â€śwhatâ€™s for dinner?â€ť
Although my focus is going to be on nutritious dinner recipes, from time to time I will also post healthy recipe ideas for breakfast, lunch and snacks.
For more on what I consider healthy food to be, Iâ€™d love you to read my Food Philosophy page.
