Know Your Numbers Week!
As we enter into September, and the late summer evenings draw to a close, it would be a great opportunity to start cooking again, reduce the showcasing of my outdoor meals, at a time where we really need to "tighten our belts" as the saying saying goes.
So I will be showing a range of cheap, healthy and easy recipes that you can cook at home, as we embark on the financial challenging times ahead in the United Kingdom, with the rising energy prices.
So the first recipe is a chicken casserole, when I made this, this can feed up to 4 people, provide a great portion per person, plus this is nutritious, and finally costs £4 for the whole meal. The ingredients are the following:
- Leftover carrots ( I used about 6 to 7, but the more people you will be serving the more carrots you need to add)
- 200 grams of broccoli
- tin of sweetcorn (optional)
- tin of peas (optional)
- 200 grams of chicken breast
- 200 grams of potatoes
- tin of kidney beans (optional)
- handful of garlic
- one onion
- 2 teaspoons of ginger
- 2 teaspoons of all purpose seasoning.
- Jar of honey and mustard sauce ***
- Carrots- Contains Vitamin A, which is great to improve vision (especially important for darkness) packed full of fibre, and contains Vitamin K which helps to improve bone strength
- Broccoli- contains Vitamin C, which is great for improving the immune system within our bodies, contains fibre, and like carrots contains Vitamin A
- Sweetcorn- Contains Vitamin B, which supports the function of cells in the body, contains Iron, which supports with the production of red blood cells, and finally this contains zinc, which works with Vitamin A to improve vision, and help to improve the immune system.
- Heart Disease
- Heart Attacks
- Limiting intake of alcohol,
