Over the past six weeks I have skipped breakfast and consumed my first meal of the day, at least 4 hours after waking.
I have lost weight, reduced my overall body fat, have clearer skin, a smaller appetite and more energy but why have I experienced these benefits when all of my life I have been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The phrase, Eat breakfast
like a king, 
Lunch Like a Prince, and Dinner Like a Pauper, springs to mind.

YouRCooK Fresh Alerts Subscrption Service

Producing, distributing, storing and cooking food uses energy, fuel and water. Each of these emits greenhouse gases contributing to climate change.

YouRCooK is committed to creating a #YouRCooKFreshAlerts community that is mindful about reducing food waste for one product, one day at a time.

One-fifth of what UK households buy ends up as waste, and around 60% of that could have been eaten.

An average family wastes £700 worth of good food a year, almost £60 worth of food a month or nearly 12 weeks worth of groceries.

Using the YouRCooK Fresh Alerts service is a quick and easy three step process as outlined below.

1)  Subscribe to the YouRCooK Fresh Alerts Service via our store.
2) Download the YouRCooK app from the Google Play or Apple Store.
3) Upload one picture of a food or drink item each week. The photo could be of a vegetable, fruit, bread, milk etc

You can follow @YouRCooKMeals on our social media channels and join the YouRCooKFresh Alerts community in increasing our awareness about reducing food waste for one product, one day at a time. We can all do our bit and make the most of our food whilst saving money at the same time.

Once you subscribe to the service, you will receive a free copy of the YouRCooK Fresh Alerts Guide. If you want to take a look at the Guide beforehand, just click on the add to cart button below.

When I was very young, I can only recall cow's milk being the only milk available to buy and drink and every morning the milk man would deliver glass bottles of milk with silver bottle tops.

How times have changed over the last decade and so many alternative milks with different flavours are displayed on our shop shelves. We can now buy milks such as:

The plane food on a recent short haul flight had a variety of meal options but most of them included bread of some sort. However a fruit salad and the salad of the day were also available. Here are some pictures of the onboard menu.

Meals on wheels services across the UK play an important role in delivering a range of nourishing hot meals to our senior citizens. Many Councils across the UK have information about meals on wheel services listed on their websites. 

Please see a list of links to some meal providers below. This list will grow in due course, so please add additional ones that you know of in the comments section so they can be added to this list.

Half-a-million people in the UK are unaware that they have coeliac disease. Coeliac disease is a life-long condition that causes your intestines to become irritated and inflamed. It is caused by gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Coeliac disease is treated and managed by adhering to a gluten free (gf) diet.
Having been diagnosed for a decade now, I have experienced a lot of change in the world of ‘being coeliac’. Fortunately, with the term ‘gluten’ becoming more widely used and, more importantly understood, a number of popular supermarket and restaurant chains now offer gluten free products, menus and substitutes aplenty. Phew.
