Happy New Year starts with great food

Each new day can bring a new beginning. The clean slate is in front of us to start a new year off on the right foot. Health and wellness is often at the forefront on our thinking when making new habits and resolutions. We resolve to be better meal planners because they say that if you fail to plan then you plan to fail.

Try slow cooked or pressure cooked meals

It's not uncommon to go to work with no dinner plans and come home with something quick and dirty. Slow cooked or pressure cooked meals can be the answer to your planning prayers. Soups, salads and stews are so nourishing and easy to make. Look for healthy recipes involving lots of vegetables and goodness, such as lentils and beans, otherwise known as pulses.

Breville’s EasySear® pan retains more flavour because everything happens in one pot. The casserole insert goes from the stovetop directly into the slow cooking unit. It can also be used independently in the oven.
