preparation

So last night i popped to Tesco and filled the basket with vegetables. This morning i have just chopped them up and put them all together in a bowl with some balsamic, salt, pepper and chilli. I need to buy a lemon today. I have freshly chopped vegetable kebabs to make tonight. My lifestyle used to be different which i think this is why i have been reaching for the easy foods. Just a little thought and preparation before hand i can still have nice fresh food to eat. Lets see if i can make this a new habit :)

Great on you for taking the first move. I am post liver transplant and do have to watch what I eat, I do the same with al sorts of vegetables as well, I keep them in a covered bowl in the fridge some times adding beans, fresh herbs etc. I only add vinegar seasoning and spices as I use some of it to stop going soggy. I make burgers and like using all forms of pulses and spices using potato and such to bind them. Pulses I try as much as possible to buy dry as its a lot better value for money, I tend to make my own mayo and sauces due to post transplant diet but find it so so exciting trying new ways and using recipes as a guide for what my imagination feels like doing. wish you all the best.

I just find all the new avenues in experimenting with the different ingredients.i do find now a lot of things I used to enjoy I don't fancy at all anymore.
