One of the things that happens to thermomix owners without them even realising it is they start to eat healthier. It doesn’t happen striaght away, the majority fo thermomix owners spend the first week cooking their main meal in the thermomix. By the end of the first month most have tried all 3 meals plus desserts and perhaps a few staples. The more you play with your thermomix the more confidence you gain as every meal turns out amazing. For me the big difference in my end product was bread, I have never been able to bake, even with a bread maker, I would produce stodgy squat loaves. When you have an amazing machine in your kitchen which can mill flour, whip butter and lets face it make anything from scratch for a lot less than it’s supermarket counterparts and without all the nasties it can become addictive. The Captain and I have noticed quite a lot of things changing around our house, we’re eating more vegetarian as the dishes are delicious and as big meat eaters we are not noticing the lack of meat so it says somethign about the recipes in the thermomix cook books. We’re saving money, we’re making things we never thought we’d attempt at home Creme Brulee, Panacotta, Arancini Balls, Risotto just to name a few. I have a new found appreciation for legumes & pulses, previously I would turn my nose up at anything like baked beans or dahl, I didn’t like the taste or texture, now I love dishes with those ingredients made from scratch in the thermomix with natural healthy ingredients. But best of all we are eating far more decidently than we ever have and we have not gained any weight, I have been able to drop medication and maintain my weight which has never previously happenned, and the captain has lost 12kg without altering his exercise regime.

I am becoming more educated and I can honestly for the first time see how I might be able to improve my health by making some simple changes in my diet, changes that are simple and will go relatively unnoticed to my palate as I will be too busy consuming thermomix delights. Stay tuned I’ll let you all know how I go!
