Sarah's lifestyle advice
Q: We've noticed our community has a newfound love for cooking at home during recent times. What's your top tip for maintaining this as life starts to get busy again?
I Think making double of any mix (like the dry ingredients of banana bread, for example) and storing it away I a glass jar for next use is SUCH a time saver. I do it when I make loaves of bread at home, and then just add in the wet ingredients when I’m ready. You can do this with muffin mixes, cake mixes, pie cases etc.
Q: What's your best piece of advice for those who are currently struggling to maintain a healthy lifestyle?
Educate yourself. There’s nothing to motivate you more than understanding how a certain food affects your body and performance - both mentally, physically. If you knew a pill would fill you up and help reduce snacking, help the body to eliminate toxins and keep a healthy digestive system, you’d probably take it, right? And yet, any food high in fibre does exactly that, but we just don’t seem to understand that food is more than just pleasure or fuel. It goes way beyond.
