Healthy Casserole and Stew Recipes
By WLR Staff, Julie Howard
Not the sexiest of meals we have to admit, but never-the-less casseroles and stews are great for the colder months. Adding extra vegetables to casseroles and stews is also a great way to help you get to your five a day.
You can also take advantage of the cooking time of a casserole. This time can be an ideal opportunity to squeeze in a bit of exercise, take the dog for a longer walk, have a kick about with the kids in the garden or again the unsexy option of washing the car or doing house work – don’t knock it you can burn loads of calories (266 calories burned in an hour!) making your motor sparkle!
