1. Shop your fridge and pantry
Always start by figuring out what you’ve already got and what needs to be used, then pick recipes based on these ingredients or adapt recipes but substituting ingredients.
2. Different cuisines
Get inspired by different cuisines for each meal, that way similar ingredients won’t feel as though they’re on repeat
3. Repeat ingredients
Choose recipes that use the same ingredients to help minimise food wastage. For example, if you’re making a slaw using 1/2 a cabbage, use the remainder in a stir-fry.
4. Try new recipes
Include one new recipe each week, to enable you to build up a repertoire of new meals you love.
5. Meatless Monday
Choose one or two meat-free recipes – think lentil or chickpea curries and stews or salads with halloumi, crispy chickpeas or falafels. We also love adding nuts and avocado to help make meat-free recipes more
6. Quick and easy
Choose one meal that takes less than 30 minutes to prepare, or bulk prepare some freezer friendly meals for those busier nights.
