I used to dread dinner time: Enter Hello FreshSaturday, January 09, 2016
As I mentioned in my first post this year I'll be taking a healthier approach to my food and everything I eat. This has been spurned on by my eczema getting worse, putting on a little more weight than I'd like and generally feeling tired, dermatitis on my scalp and I attribute a lot of this to my poor diet. I don't drink or smoke but I have an awful addiction to sugar as many of us do. I know that just a change in diet isn't enough. And I know I cant change everything in one go. So over last year I gave up one thing and then another. This year I have given up sugar.
Cooking for my family of four is always stressful we each have a different allergy or my husband might be attempting a different diet, so each of us might have a different variation of the meal, and trying to get organic or healthy version of things makes my shopping bill rocket as it does for many of us.
So in my attempt to be tackle my poor health I have so far given up dairy and refined sugars. It has not been easy but I am constantly driven by trying to improve my scalp dermatitis and hypo-pigmentation as this is most visible part of my body.

I love the intricate step by step menu, even for a non cook like myself (I have burnt water in the past), I produce amazing meals that my children actually eat. No one gets up from the table and grabs a cook book and asks me to "Follow the recipe next time" (Sebastian when he was six). No one whines and screams that they don't want it (Ruby every meal time). Actually dinner time is quite pleasant! and quiet! for a change. They all say "Thank you for the lovely meal" and I (in my shock) just reply Thank you!
So how does it work?
