Cooking for Health



What do you make when you have to throw something together in a hurry?  How do you come up with a meal when you do not have much in the house?  How can you eat healthily on a tight budget?



We are all feeling the effects of the current economic downturn and food shopping is now making a significant dent in our hard-earned cash.  Are you aware though of the tricks that supermarkets use to make us spend more?  How often have you walked out of a supermarket with dozens more items than you intended to buy?  Shockingly, one-third of all the food we buy in the UK is thrown away.  Supermarkets conduct extensive research on consumers and shopping habits and they know exactly how to get us to fill our shopping trolleys and empty our wallets.  The moment we step inside those electronically controlled doors we are being psychologically manipulated by perfectly honed marketing tools and at the mercy of tricks - both subtle and overt.
