I like to cook and I like to save and I like to eat healthy, because I deserve it :-)
If I save where I can, I have more for what is the more important to me, that's simple math, sort of.
When the simple life / declutter movement hit, I saw that several declutter experts said to get rid of your slow cooker. It takes up to much room - not!
I love to chop up vegetables and make soups and stews from scratch, and find that my slow cooker is great.
Slow cookers are relatively new here in Norway.
I bought my slow cooker this winter and it is the best thing I have bought in the kitchen. I use it every week and it saves me so much energy.
I can prepare dinner early, when my energy level is good and just set the cooker to simmer.
Nothing makes me feel better than a good home cooked meal when dear husband comes home from work, especially when I have a tired day.
Today I cleaned out my fridge - a lot of different vegetables past their crispest date but still good, some leftover meat from the weekend and some sausages - and, voila, a nice stew to serve with rice on the side - also enough for having some tomorrow - more energy saved :-)
For dessert, cut up water melon, crisp apples and a drizzle of blueberries.
I am on a 30 days without added sugar (or sweeteners) challenge with my oldest daughter - today is day 14 of 30.
Exceptions from the rule are birthdays, and we celebrated one of those this weekend. I had a piece of 2 cakes - they tasted good, but to sweet really. My body did not like the sweet to much…..
My taste buds are getting more sensitive - everything sweet, like fresh fruits, taste so much sweeter, and salty snacks do not taste me at all.
I enjoy how my body reacts to my sugar free diet -
I can not say I am less tired, but I do sleep better and my muscle aches less.
Sugar fuels inflammation - I do not need more of those - I am very motivated to make my lifestyle less sugar sweet in the future.
Enjoy your day, wherever you are
