Hello there! If you’re one of the super-busy, yet health-conscious people, who prefers homemade food—look no further!
I’m Sheetal Rabindran and at Kitchen Rings, I am putting together kitchen tips, techniques and strategies for people with hectic schedules and demanding lifestyles to make tasty, quick and healthy homemade meals.
Why Kitchen Rings?
The aim is to satisfy your adventurous spirit that wants variety in food and also make healthy food.
You will find what you need to set up in your kitchen, so it works with you. It also gives you the dos and don’ts you need to remember in your kitchen.
You can select from the variety of easy and never-fail recipes. Daily meals and picnic meals. You will find what to eat if you are unwell, and when you are travelling. When guests pop in and when you have to take something for potluck.
And when you want to celebrate and enjoy with a more elaborate preparation, Kitchen Rings is there more than ever for you. This is when you follow the steps in the #prep+cook series, where you prepare a part in advance, and hence adjust to your time limitations.
‘Busy Times’ are Not ‘No Cooking Times’
I know exactly what you are going through because I have gone through the drill myself. Read ‘years of juggling cooking with toddlers plus career plus social life plus hobbies plus sicknesses plus outings plus journeys plus a family that wants variety from the kitchen!’
I had faced the great temptation of pushing the ‘cooking’ task to the ‘low priority’ category in the daily rush. I wish I knew then what I do now! It would have saved so much effort and time. But the one thing I always did believe in is that
“Thoughtfully cooked food nourishes you in a uniquely satisfying way”. It may sound cheesy, but hey, I like my advice how I like my pizza! 🧀🍕🙋♀️❤ Sheetal

2. Assessment of Your Food Choices
How do you know if you are eating well? Is there a way of evaluating where you stand on a daily or a monthly basis?
You may be aware of what you eat, but it is necessary to put a figure to it. Quantification always sets things in perspective and helps to take the right remedies.
