The simple words ‘What’s for dinner?’ can drive fear into the heart of even the most composed and confident woman, especially if you’re preparing food for more than one person.
Here’s how to take back control of your kitchen, and keep your sanity!
If you’re like me, you live in a household with other people.
If you’re like me, you like to sit down and share meals together – for me it’s the main time I get to hear the gossip and drama of my family’s life.
If you’re like me you like to eat foods that are healthy and support and nourish your body, for me this means eating mainly raw.
If you’re like me, your family doesn’t eat this way at all.
So here are my sneaky tips to keep everyone satisfied and happy without having to cook everyone a separate meal.
I’ll use my curry recipe as an example to show you how you can easily serve one meal three ways.
(This can be made ahead of time and the curry freezes really well).
Me: I’ll enjoy my delicious curry raw, with parsnip rice – easy.
Hubby: Not a fan of cold dinners. So I’ll serve his curry sauce over cooked basmati rice, which instantly warms the sauce. I’ll also add some of my parsnip rice to his basmati rice.
Teenagers: I’ll use my curry sauce as a base and add in some ‘chicken’ (don’t tell them it’s vegetarian), but you could use the real version if you wanted, the sauce is cooked, but still healthier than any jar bought in a shop.
Then I’ll serve it over the cooked basmati rice that dad’s having too.
Easy, one meal, served three ways.
Minimal fuss and everyone’s happy!
And best of all I haven’t had to compromise the way I want to eat just to ‘fit-in’, as I still feel that I’m eating the same as they are.
