Ok, so don’t choke on your coffee, but I’ve been picked as one of Woman and Home’s BEST FOOD BLOGS!
Yes, I know that’s a bit ironic as I’m a rubbish cook.
And I really hope the other foodies aren’t upset, as I know that food blogging is a serious thing in the UK!
But I’m really chuffed.
It’s because of my features about ‘Healthy Eating For Rubbish Cooks‘.
I must admit that after writing a few background blog posts I got a little distracted. But I’m back in the game and over the next 6 months I’ll be adding all the basic recipes I use to feed my family in a healthy way, but without any cooking ability or more than 3 ingredients at a time. (hint hint, subscribe now so that you don’t miss out).
I’m very passionate about teaching people that healthy eating doesn’t have to be as extreme as eating cardboard, that treats are fine in moderation and that diets are NOT necessary when you are eating healthily.
The media only loves an extreme story (normally), so I’m incredibly chuffed that Woman and Home magazine have noticed me, even just a little bit.
I don’t know why chefs have to over complicate things and have more than 3 ingredients in every recipe. But there is a serious ramification; it puts people who are rubbish off cooking and sends them straight to the ready meal section.
The majority also seem incapable of putting together a meal which actually has healthy proportions of food. So people aren’t even used to seeing a balanced plate.
Jamie Olivers 15 minute meals are plainly more like an hour for someone as incompetent as me (I do love you though Jamie!).
I thought that maybe Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall might be onto something with ‘3 Good Things'; but that should be called ‘3 Things I wouldn’t want to eat anyway’.
Nigella is gorgeous, but her food would kill me of diabetes and heart attack really quickly.
Oh and don’t get me talking about Annabel Karmel, just note that when she is dolled up to the nines cooking her ‘easy’ meals, there isn’t a toddler clinging to her leg!
So rubbish cooks never fear; I am here and I’m going to get you healthy!
Good Cooks, you might want to check my stuff out anyway; you can always add extra ingredients to make the recipes clever!
And Congrats to all the ‘proper’ cooks in the list!
