Change 4 Life Challenge!

This week sees the launch of Change 4 Life’s ‘Be Food Smart’ Campaign. It’s an initiative aiming to help families eat more healthily in 2013 and anyone who signs up will be mailed a Be Food Smart recipe booklets with 21 low-cost nutritionally balanced recipes that appeal to adults and children.

I have been challenged to try one of the recipes every day this week and to blog about my experience. I am going to pick either breakfast, lunch or an evening meal each day and record my thoughts along with the recipes which I will publish on here the following day.

The booklets are geared towards dissuading people from eating take aways and fast food by providing cost-effective, easy, healthy recipes that will feed a family of four. Each recipe includes a calorie count as well as detailed instructions on how to prepare and cook the meal.

Healthy eating is something that I take seriously so I was keen to get involved. So many people say they can’t cook and opt for convenience food but I believe that cooking can be fun, satisfying and so much better for you when you prepare it yourself. I don’t believe in fad diets, I’m from the old school ‘eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly’ way of thinking so I think this is an excellent initiative and a good step forward in improving health and tackling obesity.

Look out for my posts over the next 7 days and if you’d like to sign up to Change 4 Life’s Healthy Eating Campaign and receive a free recipe booklet, you can do so here.
