Cooking on a Budget
We have all been on an incredible journey over the last 12 months with fundamental changes to family lives, more of us working at home, home learning and many of you have had to changes careers which in turn have affected family finances. My family and I have been on the journey with you.
During this time, I have taken the time to reflect, look at all aspects of wellbeing and focus on what makes us human. Have used my skills within an industry I am passionate about to reach out, coach individuals but also look outside our community to see how we can support.
Set about crafting some simple recipes which I hope to expand on over the next few weeks and months. Using our store cupboards, keeping it simple as we try to juggle family life but also giving you the opportunity to cook as a team, opportunity to learn and being able to eat the fruits of your hard work at the end.
I have used ingredients from Aldi’s, Iceland, Morrison and the local shops to name a few. Looking at the budget and using what we have, should that be tinned, frozen vegetables. Adapting these into real comfort foods, or “No Brainers” as I would call them. Crafting real go to dishes you own and become your signature dishes
Would welcome your feedback, share your pictures and recipes, and let us grow this community as we look toward the new normal. Let us build our community and look after people’s wellbeing.

The best salads are made with ingredients that have different textures and complementary flavors. In this vegan taco salad, you’ll love the crunch of the tortilla chips with the sweet, crisp lettuce and “meaty” crumble mixture.
The beauty about grain bowls is that they’re infinitely adaptable. You can roast just about any veggie and it’ll taste amazing in this recipe. You’re not gonna want to skip the peanut butter dressing though. It’s insanely addictive and one of our favorite sauces EVER.
