Last week we embarked on a mindful eating challenge. We were given the challenge by Legal and General who organised a five day recipe box to help us on our journey.

American Inspired Staycation – #SantanderStaycation

Funny enough, P1 has just returned from a holiday, a full 9 days with her Grandparents. She stayed in the UK this time in a beautiful place in Gloucester. I am so jealous of her little trip away because we have put off a big, long family holiday for nearly three years. The main reason of course is the price. …

Eating Out With Kids At Cafe Rouge Bluewater

We were invited along to try out the new kids menu at our local Cafe Rouge last weekend. I’ve only ever experienced a breakfast at Cafe Rouge whilst holidaying in CenterParcs so I was extremely excited and totally nervous about dining out with all three children.

Arla Big Milk Review

Milk seems to be the bane of my life at the moment. I seem to spend so much time making formula milk for P3 and receiving demand after demand for “a big one milk bottle” from P2. Then there’s P1 who really should be having more for her bone strength and growth. P2 is addicted to cows milk in a …

Journey To Fit with the Fitbit Flex

My fitness goal has really changed since I started my Healthy Habit with Juice Plus. When I first began I weighed 46.2kg and initially my journey was solely to lose some weight. Technically, my BMI was in the healthy range for my height so I didn’t really know how much I wanted to lose. I still don’t. In just over …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 12

I started my weight loss journey 12 weeks ago nearly 13 this Thursday. I haven’t updated for a month and that’s mainly because the Juice Plus Journey, healthy eating and exercise has sort of gone to pot. Ok, I’ve still been exercising usually every day for 10 minutes or every other day so that I’ve stuck to. But for nearly …

Delicious Fruity Oat Snack Bar Recipe

Last night P2 helped me to cook our first lot of freshly made snacks. As I watched all the sugar, golden syrup and butter melt I did feel slightly nervous and wondered how this was healthy. I did a little research and apparently flapjacks (and obviously fruity oat bars) are packed full of slow releasing energy which is perfect for …

In November I decided to start the Juice Plus Diet but on the same day that I started we were bombarded with concerns for P3s weight gain, or lack of and as I was breastfeeding I decided not to start my diet just yet.
