Spaghetti Bolognese

Today I forgot to order my kids their lunch from the tuckshop….


It’s ok, I know, I’m a terrible mum. Or at least in my head I am, mumma guilt is hitting hard!


You’re probably thinking, how on earth do you forget your kid’s lunch?! To be honest, I don’t even know… What I do know is that in the midst of the weekly juggle, ordering their lunch completely slipped my mind. read more…

Banana Choc Smoothie

This recipe was the 1st place winner in Jessie Reimer’s wholefood recipe challenge!! We found out we won this morning and my son was literally dancing around the house with excitement. He wanted to stay home from school to ‘celebrate.’ Um, nice try mate!

I was talking to a mum the other day whose kids have Up & Go’s for breakfast! I’m not going to go all judgy mcjudge face, but…… Up & Go have somehow earned themselves a 5 star health rating, um WTF?! This makes people believe they are giving their children a healthy option but this is SO not the case!

My choc banana smoothie recipe tastes like a yummy treat and is quick and easy to make. If my 8 year old can do it, so can you!

If you agree that the health star rating is a crock, join in the movement and sign the petition here.

Date, Chia & Coconut Balls

A huge thank you to Rennae from Bourke St Baby for sharing this super yummy recipe with us!

The health benefits of Dates are numerous, not to mention Chia Seeds and Coconut. So, Rennae has thrown them all together to make a yummy snack when craving something sweet but nutritious.

Bacon and Zucchini Mini Frittata

Packing the kids lunchbox can be a serious drag, am I right?! With a little bit of planning, we can make the whole process a lot more stress-free. By having food pre-prepared in the fridge, you can remove the decision making part of what to pack each morning.

Coming up with food ideas to pack in my boys’ lunchbox can be really difficult! If your kids are anything like mine, they don’t want to sit down to a meal, they need something quick they can grab and eat on the way to the playground. They can’t miss any precious minutes of playtime!

These mini paleo bacon & zucchini frittatas are quick and easy to make, freeze well and my boys love them. Change up the ingredients to suit what you have in the fridge and what you think your kids will eat.  read more…

Just Another Bliss Ball

Who else is trying to find their lunchbox packing mojo?!

It’s so hard to get back into the swing of it after such a long break over the holidays. There is no need to resort to processed, packaged lunchbox snacks, these are so quick and easy to make!

I whizzed these up this morning in about 5 minutes.

If you can dedicate even an hour on the weekend to pre-make these and my bacon & zucchini frittatas, your lunchbox packing is going to be a whole lot simpler! Add a frittata, a bliss ball, fruit, a homemade muffin, some veggie sticks & some popcorn in the lunchbox and you’re done!

You will feel like a lunchbox packing ninja!
