MAY Tis the Season to Cook…

In the Southern Hemisphere May is the last month of Autum. It’s definitely getting cool now. The sun isn’t as warm and it doesn’t appear as high in the sky. There is a lot of red turning to brown in the colour spectrum and the Home-Cooking palette turns to warmer and cosier food.

Wow There’s so many to choose from! What to cook? This is where Cooking Pot the iPhone app proves helpful giving you lots and lots of wholesome meal ideas that are Healthy, Sustainable and downright Delicious. Cooking Pot’s Shopping List makes food shopping a Pleasure and loads of Fun too!

This is definitely the time of year to start dusting off your crock-pot and looking forward to cosy comfort food in front of an open fire. Yes I have used the term “comfort food” but comfort food doesn’t have to be empty of essential nutrients, heaped with unhealthy fats or sugar. Staying healthy through the cooler months is easy. The idea is to eat the most nutritious food at that time of year and the most nutritious is what’s in season! What’s in season is also the cheapest! So have a good look at the list above and cook some amazing curries, ratatouille, stews and anything that fills your space with the most delightful aroma…

Cooking Pot the iPhone App has some great Quick and Easy recipes to help, most of which can be stored in the fridge or frozen to re-heat or remake later. The pies are just favourites of mine, gluten-free and vegetarian to boot. The vegan curries are just to die for or maybe a slow-cooked roast satisfies your palette. Whatever it may be you might find it on Cooking Pot the iPhone App. There is such a great variety of recipes to choose from! All recipes are categorised to help manage allergies, intolerances or simply a lifestyle choice by filtering undesirable meals. There’s recipes for everyone!!

Hot cooked meals are fine and very comforting but it’s also important to eat raw fruit and vegetables everyday. One convenient way to achieve this is by serving a raw entrée, salad or dips with veggie sticks and maybe finishing the meal with some fruit for dessert. As my Mother always said, it is advisable to eat fruit separately and in the morning to promote digestion so a fruit morning tea might be the way to go.
