‘PREP YOUR MIND IN THE MORN­ING FOR A SUC­CESS­FUL DAY’

SAYS MELISSA HEM­S­LEY, CHEF AND AU­THOR OF EAT HAPPY: 30-MINUTE FEEL­GOOD FOOD (EBURY PRESS)

‘If you want to eat more home-cooked food, you don’t have to cook ev­ery day. One thing that al­ways seems to work for peo­ple, even for me, is to get other peo­ple on board. It could be a neigh­bour or a friend, and if you work in an of­fice, rop­ing in a col­league works re­ally well. You can mo­ti­vate each other – swap recipes, talk about what’s worked, cook to­gether. You can share an or­ganic box or de­liv­ery of in­gre­di­ents. Or you can cook for each other. At work, you can each have a day when you bring in a lovely break­fast – a gra­nola or you can make por­ridge – or a big salad or soup to share.

Dou­bling your quan­ti­ties will give you a day off cook­ing. It’s dou­ble the re­ward and half the ef­fort! Feed­ing each other will make your work­ing day com­pletely dif­fer­ent; maybe add a lit­tle friendly com­pe­ti­tion, def­i­nitely some de­li­cious food.’
