Dinner sorted: Five simple, tasty and wholesome meals

by admin

“Healthy” can mean different things to different people, but broadly we all want our family’s meals to be what I’d characterise as “wholesome”. It’s not so much about the nutrient values of the ingredients used or the calorie count of the dish, but more about it giving us a sense of good physical and mental shape. A wholesome dish is one that makes us feel not only healthy, but happy.

That’s what this week’s recipes are, the kind that make us feel happy to be sitting around a table with the people we love sharing something tasty. Better yet, none of them are too taxing to make.
