Meal planning and cooking made easy with You Plate It

You Plate It

As a working mother to three young (and often fussy) children, I have come to embrace my inner ‘Nigella’ less and less. I certainly have not lost my love for cooking, but parenthood along with work commitments leaves very little time in the week to be coming up with loads of creative recipes let alone searching all over town (very much like Pokemon GO) to source hard-to-find ingredients.

So nowadays when my kids ask “What’s for Dinner?” (usually at the top of their lungs), I play it safe. Real safe. I go for meals, which are easy and quick to make. Unfortunately, these type of foods tend to be Spaghetti Bolognaise or Lasagna. They aren’t exactly the most exciting meals in the world but I at least I know that it will end up in their mouths and not on the floor right?

So what if I told you that there is another answer for people who still want to cook but not be relegated to the same mundane meals? Not only that, it also comes with an exciting recipe with all the ingredients delivered right to your doorstep? As my 3 year old would say, “Time for a happy dance!”

You Plate It is Perth’s answer to an amazing home cooked dinner without the hassle of shopping and meal planning. I ordered my first box to be delivered on a Sunday and was excited to try it finally…

New Brownes Mini’s Yoghurt Pouches

Did you know Australians consume an average 105 litres of milk per person per year (according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics), but that amount is still not enough and dairy is actually the second most lacking food group in the Australian diet after vegetables?

My girls aren’t milk drinkers so I have to find other ways to get their dairy intake…and the new Brownes yoghurt pouches are perfect!
