Fresh Week – 13th May 2013: I’m in!
Next week, commencing 13th May, the 1st week of my 34th year, I’m pledging to Eat Fresh and support Tefal’s Fresh Week
When Tefal told us of this new initiative at our introductory panel meeting, someone made the comment ‘you are preaching to the converted’ and ‘we all cook from scratch and know that fresh is best’…erm (raises hand in confession)… I don’t.
To clarify, of course I know that eating fresh foods and cooking from scratch is the healthiest way – I’ve worked for 18 years in health & fitness. However I work 40 hours a week, so does my husband, in shifts, I have a 5 year old son and a crazy dog. The one meal of the week we eat as a family is on a Sunday, the rest of the time we get by, we get fed, it’s not all ready meals but I don’t conjure up fantastic hearty cuisine every night. I take my hat off to those of you that can manage to do this every day.
I’ve a feeling you might be the same!
For one week though I’m pledging to make more of an effort, to eat fresh food and not rely on the freezer, packets or tins (although I’m allowing chopped tomatoes). 1 week, it’s got to be worth a go right? Will you join me?
I’m not pretending that I’m going to start baking my own bread and churning butter but I will try to use fresh ingredients and plan my menu for the week so we all eat well.
To help me on my way I have a Tefal Fresh Express to prepare my ingredients and a veg box from Riverford. Everyone that also signs up to Fresh Week has the chance to win these and more for themselves too, just head over to the Facebook page and pledge your support too.
I’ll be sharing my progress throughout the week with you and I’d love it if as many of you as possible would join me for the week. Who knows it could be the start of a new way of life for us!
I’m part of the Tefal Innovation Panel and I can’t wait to share with you the great stuff they have. I received a Fresh Express and Veg box to help with Fresh Week.
