The first in a series of ‘information sharing’ threads. As such PLEASE contribute: I am here to learn too! Starting with longer life ingredients but will get onto perishables/ fresh stuff.
These threads are (partly) in response to posts expressing some
very reasonable concerns about the Recipes section of The ‘Clever Guts Diet’ book (CG). Concerns covering cost and availability of ingredients, complexity of recipes, time input needed, suitability for single person households.
My posts are UK-centric, I live alone but am blessed with a decent amount of kitchen cupboards and a freezer. Work background (was) healthcare; last role included nutrition consults. Soon learned real people wanted quicker and/ or cheaper and/ or practical alternatives offering similar nutrients!
I am now on long term sick so low-ish income. Too much time (when well enough) to cram my head and cupboards with cheap-ish/ good value for money wholefoods and – somewhat processed –
Products are not always the cheapest: I balance that with flavour, ingredients list (% main ingredient, additives) and convenience (reduced prep time, shelf life).
