The waiting is the most difficult thing about this recipe as you just want to dig in!! Read More

Pregnancy Diet Tips

Pregnancy Diet Tips

Finding out you are pregnant is supposed to be an exciting time.  But for some women they find it overwhelming as there is so much information out there about what do, what to eat, and what to avoid – a lot of it is contradictory and confusing and therefore very challenging for expecting Mums to know what to do.

Food is important not only for the development and life of a growing baby but also for the mother.  As a result, a healthy diet should be a priority for the mother.  However, as we all know, it is VERY hard to worry about what we are eating especially in your first trimester when you may be feeling unwell a lot of the time.  Before getting pregnant, many women probably think that when they get pregnant they will eat lots of healthy foods – fruit and veggies, green smoothies etc.   However, when you discover you are pregnant, these thoughts can go out the window depending on how you are feeling.  Many women experience morning sickness through the first trimester (and some beyond) and often the last thing that you feel like are green vegetables.

My Cacao and Coconut granola is chocolatey, crunchy, full of superfoods and super simple to make! This breakfast has definitely become a family favourite in our household

I love making my own granola.  And whipping up your own granola is super simple and its such a great alternative to many of the store bought granola’s which are full of unnecessary unhealthy ingredients.

The best thing about making your own granola is choosing exactly what you like to go in it and you can use what you have on hand so you can change it up each time you make it.

This recipe is full of superfoods and healthy fats.  The base ingredient is raw activated buckwheat.  A great gluten free option full of fibre, protein and vitamins. I have chosen to use coconut oil which is nutritious and has a light flavour – feel free to mix this up with another healthy alternative.  Read More
