Healthy Peterborough

Healthier Cooking

You can put yourself more in control of your diet by cooking your own meals. It is much more difficult to manage the fat, salt and sugar content when you buy convenience foods or takeaways. It can be harder to control the portion size too. Having the confidence to cook using basic ingredients means you control what does and doesn’t go in to your food.

There are so many different recipes you can try. Here are just a few suggestions of places to look for healthier inspiration.
