A very real and serious topic.

Hey there ladies.. and men if you’re reading this.

I want to address a very serious and real topic that I don’t think we talk about enough these days. You’ve probably heard of PND aka Post Natal Depression. Before I start talking about this, I want you all to know that I was very hesitant to write about this as its very personal and I guess we all have the fear of being judged right? Read More




PB Choc Caramel Crunch Birthday Cake

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

You know those people who bake really well? Like everything they put in the oven comes out perfect? Well I’m not one of them. By no means. I SUCK at baking. Now, I know I shouldn’t be so negative about it.. I’m working on my baking skills slowly, But when I got assigned to cake duty for a babies birthday party, I was quietly crapping myself. One of the kids had an egg and dairy allergy and I wanted to make it gluten free. Do you know how hard it is to come up with your OWN recipe for that kind of cake? Let me tell you, it ain’t the easiest thing in the world. So I did what I do best, chucked some awesome stuff in a blender and worked my magic on a raw cake.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls

After a workout, we all know that it’s best to eat some sort of protein so our muscles can recover and grow. But if you’re like me and don’t like the standard watery protein shakes and want to get some added extra nutrition in, then protein balls are for you! They’re super versatile and easy to make. With my version I’ve filled them with good fats like nuts, peanut butter and coconut oil. A few of these after a workout or just as a snack are great, and totally delicious! Read More


Baby Vege Pikelets

This one is for all you mums out there that sometimes are stuck for meal ideas ect. It happens to the best of us. These pikelets are filled with lots of veggies and other bits and pieces that are amazing for their growing bodies.
When I started feeding Addi food, I found a recipe similar to this one and over the last few months have changed it around a bit to cater for his taste. He absolutely loves these with some avocado on top or some pumpkin purée. Read More



Raw Caramel/ Snickers Slice

So I came up with this snickers/ caramel slice about a year ago. It took me a while to perfect but I’ve had some really good feedback about it. I totally forgot about this recipe until yesterday when I was out for breakfast and saw the most amazing caramelly sticky smooth caramel slice I’ve ever seen in my life. But with all the refined sugar and probably gluten, I resisted the urge to grab it and decided to come home and make mine that I had forgot about. I haven’t shared it with you all! It’s one of the yummiest slices I think I’ve made to date.

Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Processed with VSCOcam with a1 preset

So you’ve all been asking for a few more baby friendly recipes and this one was such a winner in our house as a snack. I don’t give Addi any refined sugar.. obviously, because he’s a baby, but also because it flares up his eczema (which I’ll talk about in another post in the future) so it’s good when I can come up with recipes like this that I know are still really good and healthy for him.
