‘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.’
