Affordable, Tasty Recipes Good for the Whole Family

Food is central to the identity of South Africans. During meals the family meets around the table. On holidays and high days they gather around the braai and the potjie pot which reflect the diversity of their country. Food has many memories associated with it – the soup that warms our bodies and our souls, the dish for our homecomings, and the recipes that take us back to our youth.

Food can also be our enemy. We are seeing rising levels of lifestyle diseases in South Africa, with terrible impacts on our health – heart disease, stroke, type two diabetes and cancers are all on the rise, due to our increasingly poor diet.

We all know that staying healthy can be difficult. We have busy schedules, and shrinking household budgets. Healthy foods recommended to us often seem unavailable and unaffordable, leaving us feeling inadequate. It can be time-consuming to make the journey to the supermarket and to prepare a meal, when fast food is closer to home. Many Indian people search books of  Sanjeev Kapoor cooking recipes to learn of cooking.

Can we afford to spend more on so-called ‘healthy foods’? Do we have the time to slave over a stove to make dishes that our families turn their noses up at? The truth is healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring, expensive or complicated! It can be as simple as making small changes to your family’s favourite dishes. This recipe book shows how to make food that tastes good, is simple to prepare and is easy on the pocket. By using everyday ingredients, you too can prevent yourself and your families from the dangers of different lifestyle diseases.

I am passionate about making healthy living accessible to everyone and in South Africa and increasing our understanding of the risk factors of serious diseases. It has so many implications for the future of our nation. This recipe book can show us how we can take responsibility for our own health, and how to protect our families now and in the future.

The recipes in this book were selected from family favourites contributed by people all over South Africa. These have been adapted to follow the guidelines of the Heart and Stroke Foundation South Africa. Remember that healthy eating is important for the whole family and not only for the person affected by a lifestyle disease. Teach your children to eat healthily from a young age to protect them from chronic diseases later in life. Healthy food doesn’t have to be expensive or bland and boring. We show you how to use as little fat, oil, salt and sugar as possible and rather use herbs, lemon juice, salt-free spices and other seasonings to prepare delicious food. We want to encourage you and your family to gradually make changes to the way you eat and cook. This will make a huge difference to your health.

  6. thank you for sharing the recipe sites, it would be easier now for me to search on a new recipe to cook for my family

  7. I agree sis, with all the processed foods available, it’s hard to find something healthy. It’s really great that we have these healthy recipes available so we can make healthy dishes for our family.

  8. That sounds like a lovely recipe. I would love that. I do make a lot of changes when it comes to cooking our food and we rarely eat outside because we want to know who makes the food and what’s in our food. Since last year, we made a decision to switch to using Olive Oil in cooking and baking. Also using coconut oil as well. When it comes to sugar, I use natural sweetener quite often. I puree fruits and veggies and hide it in baked goods. Little changes like that really can make an impact in our daily food intake. Great article!
