When the weather cools down, we like to nourish our bodies with warming meals, such as stews, casseroles and curries. But, as a busy mum, these types of meals can sometimes seem too time-consuming to prepare.
These slow-cooked meals can actually be a friend to the time-poor mum, with just a bit of forward planning and a few minutes work in the morning. These recipes usually just require you to prepare a few ingredients, add them all to one pot and let the oven, stove top or your slow cooker do the rest. You can then get on with the rest of your day, knowing that you have a healthy and delicious meal ready for your family at dinner.
Slow cooked meals are also perfect for making in bulk and freezing, which again will save you time in the kitchen.
We have chosen our favourite oven and stove top prepared slow-cooked meals for this cookbook, with tips on adjusting the recipes to suit a slow cooker, if you have one. Recipes include an abundance of fresh, whole food ingredients high in nutrients, vitamins and minerals, to provide you and your family with healthy, balanced meals that are so easy to prepare.
