I have come to the realisation during my few months in Brasilia, that things I had taken for granted as staple produce, can be really hard to get a hold of here. Everytime you move to a new country, you expect there to be differences and you may not always be able to get hold of that specific brand or that seasonal vegetable- but I naively thought when it came to fresh produce it was pretty much standard across the board in all developed society – I was wrong!
You know what one of the best things about living in Brasilia is? Churrasco!
Well…. if you are a committed carnivore and foodie that is! :) Keep Reading
Over the last few months, C and I have realised the benefit of meal planning! By planning the meals you want to cook the following week and planning the days you won’t be cooking, we have realised a few things:
- Weekly meal planning takes the stress away from the dreaded question ‘what should we make for dinner tonight’.
- Allows you to cook meals that fit into you diet plans (for us, that is LCHF) and not just randomly throwing things together.
- Cuts down (almost 90%) food waste.
- (and my favourite point) You save money.
Seriously – why has it taken me so long to figure this out?
