  48. My mum had an accident just after Christmas which put her in hospital for 2 weeks with a long recovery period and led to me taking on all the cooking, which previously she had done - I've always enjoyed cooking, but it was "her domain".

    It had the unexpected result of me completely changing my diet, and I am now eating an awful lot more vegetables and much healthier food in general. My repertoire is very limited so I would love to win this as I could really do with some more vegetarian meal ideas!
