Food of late 014

Saturday, February 15, 2014

Eat clean, eat often, eat a balanced diet. I've been trying out healthier meals lately and by this I mean less crappy processed for (including premade sauces and packets of stuff), less carby rubbish; bread, pasta, rice and potatoes and more homemade fare with plenty of protein and roughage. Apparently the last food catch up post was in September so I have no idea what’s happened in between then and now but here are some dishes from the last few weeks.

Did you notice that (some) of my photos are better than usual? I’m using a new method and am so far pleased with the results. Looking back at these meals I have to proclaim that I’m pretty pleased with the efforts we’ve made as the dishes certainly are colourful with a good mix of different components.
