Find someone near you to chow down with!

If you’ve read the tips section, begun to practice them by following the lifestyle and recipes and been overjoyed with your results you may, like me, have come to the conclusion that the surest route to long-term healthy eating is consuming in the main fresh home-cooked food – where you know how much of which ingredients of what nutritious quality you’re consuming.

The trouble is that if you have a busy working life then unless you make a concerted effort to plan your meals in advance (perhaps taking time at weekends or when less busy to shop for the necessary ingredients and prepare batches of meals for freezing so they are ready for you to eat when you have less time in the week) it’s difficult to maintain a healthy diet – either for weight loss or to maintain the weight and health you’re happy with.

“I don’t have time to cook!”

Well, the chances are that somebody near you will have a different work-life balance and be able to prepare home-cooked food for those times when you’re not.

Hence, if you want to find somebody who can prepare chow for you or someone who’d like to chow down on your food just post a reply here. Of course you’ll need to agree the commercial arrangements between yourselves to make the exchange worth both your whiles. This will include details of the ingredients used (e.g. 2% fat minced beef is more expensive than ‘value’ 20% fat), when the meal(s) will be collected/delivered and when/how payment will be made. All parties should satisfy themselves that adequate standards of hygiene are followed and chow makers are responsible for declaring any profits they make.
