First and foremost, a warm welcome to a new friend and an official brand partner of mine > LENOVO, an incredible technology company that makes unreal products. We, in other words, me, YOU, and Lenovo will be going on what i hope to be a fun, entertaining and educational journey over the next couple of weeks where we explore what we have termed #COOKSMART which is apart of their broader campaign which you can check out here >
As for you and I, i’m hoping that through this we can learn to:
Cook more efficiently, get our meals done quicker and not lose out on nutrition and our flavor.
Cook food that is beneficial to us, our family, and our friends.
HAVE FUN whilst cooking, this thing shouldnt be a chore, it should be a moment!
Lastly, to cook more sustainably by ensuring our choices help the planet.
How does Lenovo fit into the above? Thats the thing, im not sure about you but my laptop and pad fit into my everyday life, and the kitchen is NO exception. I almost ALWAYS have my pad or my laptop in the kitchen with me. Either im checking a recipe, seeing a video for guidance, or just jamming to some music whilst cooking.
What ill be playing over the next couple of weeks:
The Lenovo YOGA C940

In the first episode we explore exactly what do we mean when we say #CookSmart, take a deeper look into the Lenovo YOGA C940 and its mad capabilities, and lastly i show you how to make a delicious #CookSmart type meal, a Middle Eastern Chicken recipe that will rock your world.
In the second episode of our #CookSmart series with Lenovo I wanna let you in on my top 3 food blogs, show you how incredibly dope it is to surf the net with the YOGA C940 and lastly be inspired by a recipe we find online, modify it and create our own #CookSmart recipe. If you love sushi or low carb recipe ideas then this one’s for you.
For the finale episode I want to show you something i have incorporated into my monthly calendar, a meal with my beautiful mother. She lives down in the Eastern Cape and we haven’t actually seen each other since the beginning of lockdown. So once a month we share in a meal together over the internet. Its actually become one of my favorite new habits. She makes the most delicious “Canja” which is a Portuguese chicken soup that we normally have to boost our immune system. Cooking Smart is about making smart choices around food, so im taking my mothers recipe and modifying it slightly. We will make a Spicy Chicken Ramen bowl and join my mother for a special meal.
