These Muesli Bars are a great option to have on hand when you feel the urge to snack. A healthy alternative to store bought muesli bars and great for us busy mums as they require no prep. Popular snack for adults and a great addition to kids lunchboxes.

As a busy mum, I love having something healthy on hand to reach for when I feel the urge to snack (which seems to be often especially since I’m breastfeeding….). And these muesli bars are a delicious option. Not only for me, they seemed to be popular with Stella and James as well! A great option for both adults and kiddies alike. Note to self, must make a bigger batch next time!

The dangerous thing about being at home all day long is the temptation of the pantry…. So I always make sure that I have something nutritious that I can grab for morning/afternoon tea AND an option that requires no preparation is key. Read More

Being Gluten Free is not the end of the world….

Being Gluten Free is not the end of the world….

This week is Coeliac Awareness Week so I wanted to share a post about my experience with Coeliac disease and to share a bit more information around this disease in terms of what it is, tips and my favourite gluten free foods and cafes.  I hope you find it helpful.

I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease in my mid 20s and I did think my life was over – that was after the doctor had to explain to me exactly what Coeliac disease was and then what gluten was. Once I got my head around this, I just thought, no more of my favourite foods. But on the plus side, would changing my diet really make me feel better….? Read More

A decadent and crunchy fudgey slice full of chocolatey goodness. Free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. Make yourself a batch here!


This is my “go to” favourite treat that I make on a fairly regular basis.  Its another super simple healthy recipe and definitely satisfies those sweet / chocolate cravings.  Its something I always freeze and therefore have on hand for when those 3pm pangs hit.

This popular treat that my whole family enjoys is free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar so a great allergy friendly treat.  The slice requires no baking and barely any preparation as it’s predominantly made in a blender but you do have to take into consideration the chilling time. The waiting is the most difficult thing about this recipe as you just want to dig in!! Read More

Pregnancy Diet Tips

Pregnancy Diet Tips

Finding out you are pregnant is supposed to be an exciting time.  But for some women they find it overwhelming as there is so much information out there about what do, what to eat, and what to avoid – a lot of it is contradictory and confusing and therefore very challenging for expecting Mums to know what to do.

Food is important not only for the development and life of a growing baby but also for the mother.  As a result, a healthy diet should be a priority for the mother.  However, as we all know, it is VERY hard to worry about what we are eating especially in your first trimester when you may be feeling unwell a lot of the time.  Before getting pregnant, many women probably think that when they get pregnant they will eat lots of healthy foods – fruit and veggies, green smoothies etc.   However, when you discover you are pregnant, these thoughts can go out the window depending on how you are feeling.  Many women experience morning sickness through the first trimester (and some beyond) and often the last thing that you feel like are green vegetables.
