    One of the trending health foods, bone broth is packed with nutrients and is relatively cheap to make. By simmering bones, it releases minerals, like calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium, as well as bone marrow, which is high in immunity-boosting nutrients. While such nourishing soups traditionally require hours on the stove, cooking time can be minimised with the help of your Thermos® Shuttle Chef®.

    Known for its high omega-3 fatty acid content, salmon is a great source of protein that is also easy to cook. This recipe bakes in individual foil packs that not only makes food portioning a breeze, but also allows you to prep the ingredients in advance. Simply store the packets in the refrigerator until ready to cook – but don’t leave them overnight. For a lighter option, substitute butter with a generous drizzle of olive oil.

    As decadent as risotto but without the tedious cooking, this orzo dish only needs 20 minutes on the stove, and is a great opportunity to try the rice-shaped pasta that you’ve always seen on the shelves but never bought. Using a combination of milk and cheese instead of cream, this lighter recipe is also a good way to sneak in some greens. In addition to spinach, you can also include veggies like chopped broccoli, asparagus, and kale.

Make it a fun family activity by letting the kids help with decorating the pie.
