"As well as the nutritional side I was also happy to learn more about food prep and gain new cooking skills, especially knife/chopping techniques.  It’s great being able to chop an onion like a pro!"

"I loved the kale and mushroom lasagne and have cooked this at home.  I am also much more careful to measure ingredients such as oil and find myself checking the nutritional labelling when shopping now, it finally makes sense."
