April Slow Cooker Challenge: 7-a-day!

Uncategorized | April 2, 2014 | By

How many portions of fruit and veg do you manage to eat in a day?  The latest research is showing that we should be upping our target of 5-a-day to 7-a-day or more.  Read more about this on the BBC News website 7-a-day Fruit and Veg Saves Lives

As I care deeply about all my readers and want them to live for a very long time, the theme for the April Slow Cooker Challenge is 7-a-day  make a dish in your slow cooker that contains 7 portions of fruit and/or veg, follow the rules and link it up to the Linky below:

06/04/14 I’ve had some feedback that it seems unreasonable to include 7 portions of fruit/veg in one meal and that’s probably true.  That wasn’t really my intention but I can see that I did actually say that!  In the dish I made (coming soon) I included 7 different vegetables so use that as your guide – just pack as many fruits and veggies in there as possible.

      I'm afraid I have to be quite strict, Dom (you know you like it!) and only accept recipes cooked in an electric slow cooker. Gives you an excuse to go out and buy one.

    I've been meaning to get involved for a while now and finally have! It was a challenge fitting so many veg in but one readily accepted 🙂
