how do you eat?
it seems i eat everything! i mostly eat fruit & green salads. i try hard to eat organic & do my own baking for the kids’ lunch boxes. i like being prepared so i can avoid junk food cravings when hungry.
what do you eat?
i like to eat foods from the ground. i remember returning from travelling, over 10 years ago now, feeling depleted of energy & quite overweight. i went on a no sugar, no carbs & no dairy diet & felt great almost immediately. that feeling has always stayed with me so i try to maintain a healthy ratio of whole foods to sugar, dairy & carbs.
the underrated side salad has always stolen the show for me. i love green salads! especially when they’re pooled with vegetables (red cabbage, broccoli & capsicum), oils & light cheeses. i have a sweet tooth too – & with that in mind i try to satisfy my cravings with healthy sweets such as fruit & some that are maybe not as healthy like good dark chocolate or an almond milk chai latte.
what do you cook?
my children’s favourite meal, which has become my favourite meal to dish up for them, is ‘bangers & mash’. i mash sweet potato with lots of organic butter & cream, green beans & broccoli, & use very tasty bbq sausages with a creamy onion gravy.
chai lattes on almond milk or if i’m wearing stilettoes verve champagne!
dark chocolate or dark chocolate protein balls.
to encourage my children to try different foods & eat healthy.

fridays are always exciting, being the last day of the week, for everyone in our family. we can it friday funday! we’re nearly always exhausted & love staying home friday nights to recharge for the weekend.
i was woken by our rooster at 5am, so i got going early, got the kidlets ready for school & did the school drop off. even though i woke early, i only had a cup of tea so after the school drop off i caught up with a friend at a nearby cafe for an almond milk chai latte & protein ball before heading to work.
i grabbed lunch while doing the banking & did the after school pick up before cooking dinner for the family.
