A guilty mums guide to eating better!07:00:00
When going through the stage of being a 'single parent' (living alone with my daughter as my husband lived/worked away) looking back now I can honestly say that we didn't eat very well.
Suffering from PND, being pregnant and living in a small flat all meant that making dinners was a nightmare, the microwave (or if were were lucky, something I could cook for 20 mins from frozen in the oven) became my beast friend and rare were the days where I actually cooked vegetables (and even then they were microwaved steamed veg, not fresh - I didn't know how to cook that!)
I'm lucky that my daughter is still breastfed and that we had family around us that would cook us meals a few times a week, but when we moved, I snapped out of my depression. We were a family again and I knew I wanted my family to eat much much better than they had. (To save money my husband would eat a 12p tin from ASDA for his dinner and a bit of rice!)
Now we eat healthy meals everyday. Its rare that I actually cook from my freezer (bar the odd chips as an add on to a meal) and my fridge is always stocked with plenty of fresh fruit, salad and veg!
So I thought I'd give you some samples of the new diet we have.
AWAY WITH READYMEALS AND ON TO PAELLA!
