Food for Thought

Dec 22, 2011 No Comments by

I honestly do want to eat healthily, but the last thing I want to do is drive around to ten different stores trying to find everything from dill to cod to create a balanced meal. So, when I got the chance to review the services of 5 Dinners, I jumped at the chance.

All the ingredients to create five delicious, nutritious meals were delivered straight to my door. Created by expert in diet and nutrition, Christine Zellén, the 5 Dinners “food bag” contains fresh vegetables, root vegetables, fish, chicken, meat and whole grains. In fact, everything you need to get all the essential vitamins, minerals and trace elements your body requires to function properly. The bag came complete with easy to follow recipes in both English and Spanish. Now, all I had to do was cook – ah yes, I forgot to mention, Delia Smith I am not!

The first night was sesame chicken nuggets with rice and curry sauce. This is a great dish for the whole family as it tricks children into thinking they are not eating healthy food. 30 minutes later, I had created a tasty meal that was enjoyed by all. I wanted to see if the 5 Dinners concept was suitable for all generations, so I roped my parents in to try out the next dish. They live off fried, unhealthy food and my mother’s idea of vegetables is chips. Thankfully, they thoroughly enjoyed their meatballs in lemon-tomato sauce with fettuccine and lentils. Hopefully this will make them realise that healthy food doesn’t just mean lettuce leaves.

We enjoyed five different meals and still had leftovers, which we were able to freeze, making the service great value for money. The best part is that you do not have to be a whiz in the kitchen to create these delicious meals. The recipes make it quick, easy and most of all fun. I mean if I can do it, anybody can!
