Eating right – getting inspiration

If you follow this blog you know that eating natural comes naturally to me and I do enjoy a good cooking session!

I love everything from quinoa to a perfect salmon and enjoy indulging in delicious, healthy and nourishing meals. However, sometimes finding inspiration to try new flavour combinations can be hard – especially when you’re in a busy job with long hours to match.

I for one refuse to let this be an excuse and make sure I have time to do what Benefits me and my body. Try some of these easy tips and I promise you’ll be inspired to cook something different tomorrow:
– Stock up on different cookbooks with food from different cultures. I own everything from Gwyneth Paltrow’s It’s all good and Nigellisima to Jamie’s 15 minute meals and red velvet chocolate heartache – all do incredible tasty recipes, which will keep your digestive system guessing:

– Find the right blogs for you! I would highly recommend Smitten kitchen, Deliciously Ella or the Natural Kitchen. There’s so many out there so next time try something else than BBC Food
– Use Pinterest. I’m a big fan of the app and many think it’s just for furniture ideas but it in fact has a wealth of other content including healthy recipes to die for. I particularly love this pinHow to make the perfect kale salad which I’ve pinned to my own Food Board – yum
– Ask your family. Both my parents have always been passionate about cooking and our kitchen was always multicultural and never boring! My dad makes incredible potato salad with meatballs whilst my mum does a mean meatloaf. One of my most precious items is a cookbook with all my childhood recipes my mum made my twinnie and I for our 19th birthday before we moved away from home and over to London – now that’s proper heartwarming nostalgic food

Do you have any tips for how to find inspiration?
