I have always loved food and cooking. I have fond memories of learning to cook with my mother at a young age and I’m now teaching my own daughter, who’s five. As I grew up and started to travel, I loved to sample new dishes, recreate them back at home and make them my own. However, in the past, my favorites have not always been the most healthy!
Now, a little older and more conscious of health issues, I have developed an interest in creating low-fat, low-cholesterol recipes for myself and my family. You won’t find any calorie counting or dieting tips here, I’m not trying to lose weight, just live a little more ‘fat and especially cholesterol’ free!
From my experience though, low-fat can sometimes mean low in taste and, let’s face it, pretty dull at times. Whilst striving to eat right, I don’t want to feel as if every meal in an exercise in self-denial. My family still wants to enjoy delicious, tasty food.
So now I’m on a mission to rework my favorites dishes, collected over the years and create and explore new ones. I try to avoid red meat and full-fat dairy products, especially cheese. I try to include plenty of fruit and vegetables, lean meat, fish, low-fat dairy products and some vegan foods.
My recipes are simple and quick to prepare. I may wish to spend hours in the kitchen for a special occasion but no one has time for that mid-week. I hope you enjoy my blog!
