Great looking recipes, time savers, but you’ve forgotten that, for most people, we don’t have all the ingredients to hand. You send out little pots of this and that but how many people have such ingredients in the cupboard?

Looking at the Beetroot recipes (and I love Beetroot) I do not have Apple Cider sitting in my cupboard, nor Quinoa, farro, or freekeh (in fact I have never come across the last two). These are but a couple of the problems I’d face. If I went out to buy some of the ingredients I suspect there could be quite a lot of waste.

I live on my own and so I have to risk freezing half of the meal or heating up and eating the same meal two days running, which I don’t mind. The problem is the danger of heating meals up – people keep telling me it’s dangerous!! I reckon that if I’ve cooked something fresh, cooled it, kept it in the fridge overnight then it should reheat without probelms but it doen’t taste as good!!
