Recently my wife decided to let my daughters practise their pizza making skills. This has many benefits – fresh home-made food with healthy ingredients, lets my daughters learn how to cook when they are young, gives my wife some quality mother-daughter time, and it fills our tummy with delicious food.I was particularly impressed with their personal artistic flair displayed in the pizzas they made – none of this traditional round pizza stuff that you can buy in the supermarkets.
My oldest daughter clearly loves her puppy Rosie, as even her pizza looks like a dog’s face.
My wife’s pizza is the most traditional looking. But that is alright, as it tasted nice – although could have had more chilli in there.
To ensure that we all complied with the 5 portions of fruits and vegetables, my wife also prepared a fruit and vegetable salad. The aim is to eat as varied diet as possible – the more colours represented in the food, the more likely there will be all the minerals and vitamins required for good health – something we learnt from a Gastroenterologist friend from America.
So food does not have to be boring – it can be fun, home-made and multi-coloured. Great!
