In the last couple of months, I have been learning so very much about food. I’m learning things that I didn’t even know I needed to learn but the best part is, I’m sort of getting my head around the whole idea of ‘wholefoods’ and why we’re told certain things are good and bad. What…

I recently made a decision. I need to be a bit more real about things. I need to do this for myself and I need to do this for you. A couple of weeks ago I posted a #keepingitreal post on Facebook. It was a photo of me holding Cooper on one hip, flipping pancakes…

I’m not going to lie. This being a mum gig, while totally amazing and rewarding and full of love, it’s challenging. One of the hardest things I think, is making time for myself. It has been especially hard recently with a few viruses (one rather nasty one that landed poor Ollie in hospital for 3…

People. Really, when it comes down to it, is there really anything more important than our family and friends? It’s all about the people. You can have all the material possessions in the world but if you don’t have family and friends and your health (ie you) then do you really have all that much?…

A bit of a different post for me today…As you probably already know, I’m big on a few things and on top of everything is happy and healthy. I try and assess everything by these two – if it doesn’t make us happy or healthy then it doesn’t warrant attention. One thing that doesn’t make…

What we eat around here is influenced by a few factors. Primarily it’s health. Health for me doesn’t mean diet food or leaves and or fad stuff. Health means eating real food. That’s it – real food or in Instagram talk #jerf (just eat real food). We’re pretty budget conscious but also wherever possible I…

My little sister is a Canadian at the moment. She’s been living over in Canuck country for the last 6 months or so and experiencing all that the land of the maple leaf has to offer. When I was 19 (I can’t quite believe that was 12 years ago!!!) I spent three years over there…

I shall file this one under ‘risky craft business.’ It involves the use of a few power tools which can lead to some nasty injuries if you’re not super careful so please please be careful if you’re going to attempt these. If you want to make them with the kids, I suggest preparing the plastic…

Happy cheese week! Ok so it’s not officially cheese week but I have declared it so over on Facebook. I’ve been sharing all my favourite cheese recipes like carrot, corn and cheddar muffins, cheddar and poppy seed crackers and homemade ricotta. Cheese is definitely one of my favourite foods and ingredients. I missed Brie more…

Last week I did a juice cleanse. Last week I discovered how much I really love food. The actual cleanse (I got a free trial from Schkinny Maninny) was pretty good. All the juices were really tasty and I wasn’t all that hungry. On the third day I woke up feeling really refreshed and energised.…

Chocolate breakfast smoothie

I am on day two of a three-day juice cleanse. I got the email from Schkinny Manniny last year when I was breastfeeding and right in the thick of newborn haze so put it aside then promptly forgot about it. January rolled around and it’s all new years resolution this and new fad that and…
