I hallmarked Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings as new blog update days but it seems Amelie picks up a new illness every week at the moment. A new bug means sleepless nights and long days for me, and inevitably I end up catching it too. Oli joked that she’s not allowed to go to any baby groups and socialise anymore, I think he was joking… So, I apologise for the lack of posts recently. I have been working on a few new recipes so I look forward to sharing those with you over the next week or two.
I do love hearing from people who read my blog, message me asking for advice and those that try my recipes and let me know how they got on. A few people recently have asked for a shopping list and advice on where to buy ingredients so that they can stock up on a few essentials. I think a good idea could be an online shop (Amazon or Buy Whole Foods Online) and buying some bits in bulk as supermarkets tend to sell small packets at more of a cost. There are some ingredients that I get through very quickly so it works out cheaper and your ingredients will last longer that way. Below are some ingredients I use a lot in my recipes.
Things I would buy in bulk online are:
Oats (make sure nothing is added to them)
Other things you can pick up in the supermarket gradually or when you’re making a specific recipe:
Almond Milk (Rude Health is free from additives, others might not be so do check) – or any other plant-based milk
If you go to my ingredients page there is a more comprehensive list of ingredients you can add to your shopping list. Sometimes it’s good just to get a little bit of inspiration before you head out to do a food shop!
I hope this is useful in some way. Have a fantastic week and hopefully I’ll have a new recipe up on Wednesday night for you : ) In the meantime, let me know what you struggle with when trying to eat healthy foods – snacks, meal ideas, lunches etc!
