Cooking is without doubt one of the most important skills a person can learn.

Jamie Oliver

There are loads of recipes on his website and YouTube channel.  I love his chicken and mushroom pie.  He does it in no time.  It takes me ages (I make my own gluten-free shortcrust pastry) but it’s so delicious it’s worth it.

I’ve also just bought a copy of his new book ‘5 Ingredients’ – brilliant if you’re new to cooking and want to keep things simple.

I went to see the fabulous Dr Phil at the weekend when he brought his Health Revolution show to Keswick.  I’ll write more in my next post but here are a couple of fab quotes:

I want to be free-range elderly, not battery elderly.

Dr Phil’s auntie Queenie.

Health care begins with self-care.

Doing the same thing and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.

Albert Einstein

When you discover that you’re riding a dead horse, the sensible strategy is to dismount.

Attempting another post-Christmas diet?  Failure statistics next time (spoiler alert, they’re huge).  Give it up as a bad job and learn to eat well.

Some foods build your health, others cause you harm.  We’re entering a season when bad eating has become de rigueur.  I doubt anyone will eat and drink only good things between now and the New Year – and we don’t have to.  If your basic habits are sound, a little bit of Christmas cake won’t kill you.  Pick the best of what’s on offer and enjoy good company.  Merry Christmas.
