I just love to cook for my family. However, I am not going to falsely portray myself as some chef extraordinaire or gourmet foodie as that is not who I am or what this site is about! Good nutrition is about eating simple, nutritious, fresh food for the majority of the time and throwing in a few ‘treats’ here and there for good life balance.

Don’t strive for perfection, or have a pantry full of exotic foods that you may only use once or twice or indeed spend half of your life in the kitchen! The aim of meal or snack times, especially when you have young children around your ankles, limited mobility or a hectic work schedule is not to create a series of Insta-worthy snaps (though I do have fun with those sometimes!). 

With even just the most basic of skills, limited time and just a few ingredients – you can eat well!
