Healthy Eating

Hello everyone! Cooking with your family is a great way to keep everyone busy and motivated. Use these opportunities to drop in a bit of maths (measuring weight, capacity and time) and reading (instructions). If you have any cooking ideas and recipes that you would like to share, please email us links to websites and articles and we will try to post them on these pages. Thank you!  
 
 
This is a link to a great low-carb recipe by Joe Wicks (he gets everywhere!) that my family love, so it's tried and tested. Leave out the mushrooms and spinach if you want (it will still be quite healthy!). This dish is especially good if you don't really want to load up on lots of starchy carbs (like pasta) that you don't have the opportunity to burn off at the moment. Mr Kettle
This is Miss Blotz's recommendation; 'Banana and Blueberry Muffins' (she reckons it is healthier that it sounds!). Give it a go!
Mrs Savage has just sent in her recipe for 'Healing Chicken Soup'. It looks like a doddle to make, and packed full of healthy ingredients! It would be very easy to adapt this recipe to suit your own family's tastes, just throw in what they like!
Miss Blotz has been very busy. She has compiled some of her favourite 'easy' recipes into a single word document which you can find below. In it, you'll find instructions for bread dough, flapjack, veggie bolognese sauce, easy kids fishcakes, banana pancakes and green frittata muffins. I'm getting hungry just typing this....
Mrs Harman really rates this recipe for 'Baked Spiced Lentils with Sweet Potato'. All she says about it is 'yummy'!
Miss S (Pelicans) uses this recipe for 'Vegan Focaccia with Tomato and Rosemary'. It is incredibly rewarding to bake your own bread; even more so when it looks as good as this!
Here are three recipes from Mrs Dicksee. The soup is good for using up leftover veg, the cereal bars have got her through a marathon or two, and her daughter has been making the banana bread recipe since she was 9, so all easy stuff! (And a great way of using over-ripe bananas).
