I haven’t used pads or tampons in 12 months

Little Mashies: a review + 3 easy recipes

I first heard about Little Mashies about a year ago and they sounded like a dream come true. My kids were always wanting to buy pouch yoghurts when we did groceries because they were fun and easy and other kids had them. Sadly, yoghurt pouches sold in stores are chock full of sugar and/or absolute ... Continue reading

How to sprout + dehydrate rice

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll probably remember me mentioning the kids have been enjoying some sprouted rice lately with their meals. I found a bag of already sprouted brown rice in the health food aisle of the supermarket and thought, why not? It’s been a good little filler that also encourages them to ... Continue reading

Sibbie’s grain-free buttery lemon and almond biscuits

Sibbie and I made these yummy biscuits after pre-school this week, and she’s claimed them as her own. They’re grain-free and fructose-free, but chewy and yummy and zesty. These will be a regular after school snack for us, I think. Note: if you or your kids or whoever has the pleasure of munching on these ... Continue reading
