Are you vegetable savvy ?

If not, let us guide you through the basics vegetables that are cheap and easy to find in most stores.

We give you different ways to use them in various dishes to avoid waste.   For a healthy diet we should eat 5 serves of vegetables a day.  What is an actual serve ?  A serve size may surprise you.  Each image below contains an equivalent serve size.  Find more details for each by clicking on the picture.

Choose seasonal produce to get the most nutrients as well as value for money. Choose recipes for the season or substitute ingredients that are in season.  Turnips in winter and Sweet Potato in Summer. Seasonal Guide to Vegetables

Buy local wherever possible to reduce your impact on the environment.  By swapping expensive meat for cheaper veg you can save a load of money as well as improve your health, and the health of our environment.  If you had good intentions and the veg often left rotting in the fridge (you are not alone) then hopefully you can find inspiration on our recipe pages or in these guides.
