Cooking Up A Storm…

Cooking Up A Storm…

I have spent the best part of my evening scraping, cutting ,boiling, grilling, grating and finally cleaning up. Yes people, believe or not I do cook from time to time and very well I might add. Now I’m not claiming to be the black Barefoot Contessa but I’m not too bad even if I do say so myself.

The reason for all this cooking you ask… well my colleagues and I decided to come together and help each other out on our common new years resolution to lose a few pounds (which I make every year by the way, along with the rest of the world ). Well the rest of the world except for one friend who says and I quote- ‘ I don’t do New Years resolutions, it’s psychologically draining. I already have enough that I have not achieved, why intentionally load another failure to my list #justsaying’ -Thoughts on this?

Anyways I digress- The idea is  one person  prepares a healthy lunch each day for everyone else. The beauty of it is you only have  cook  once a week, I’m all for that! Tomorrow is my turn and I am hoping they will enjoy the fruits of my labour.

Now I know you can’t taste it, but let me know what you think.


Couscous mixed with spring onions, sundried tomatoes and chorizo… scrumdelicious!


brown riced cooked in turmeric and curry paste, left to cool and mixed with red kidney beans, corn, carrots and a few raisins-sprinkle of spring onion for a bit colour


Now this right here is totes delish but needs some patience and a lot of muscle. Grated sweet potatoes with desiccated coconut.


The whole shebang! Adding a few more bits and bobs tomorrow for the big presentation


I will let you know the verdict….  if its a good one 😉


Till next time… xoxo
