Our Food Challenge – Planned Meals – Week 1

As some of you may be aware food has become a real challenge in our home, this blog post highlights some of the hurdles we face, and my aim is to try to get us all eating as healthy as possible.

  • Shepherd’s Pie 
  • Creamy tarragon chicken served with mash and peas
  • Green bean risotto with pesto
  • Beef and root vegetable hotpot 
  • Gingered sweet potato soup

  • Sausage casserole, beans and sweet potato mash
  • Creamy pesto chicken
