What’s in my Nappy Bag?

I often get asked what products I use on Juliet, as there are so many on the market. It can get confusing to know what to use or choose, as so many products contain harmful toxins and fragrances, which can cause harm to our little ones. ⠀ I always stick to products where I can understand the ingredient’s listing, they are ideally certified organic, or have recognizable ingredients at the very least and I go with a less is more…

The Organic Butler Fresh Produce

I am a big believer in manifesting (combined with taking action) to get what you want in life, and I have a little story to share.⠀ It was Sunday morning last month, and hubby and I were chatting about how time is so limited now with all our work and family commitments. One of the things we have been striving to do is minimise – minimise our material stuff, minimise our commitments (I’m currently failing at that lol!!), minimise where…

Leda Banana Bars

It’s morning or afternoon tea time and you really need a pick me up. And plain fruit isn’t cutting it. So in the past, I would have a biscuit, some salty chips, lollies, anything to give me a spike in sugar or salt (or both) and I was happy for about 30 minutes. ⠀ Nowadays, I have improved my snack choices so my energy levels last a lot longer and I usually munch on a Carman’s Kitchen muesli bar, some…

Animal Biscuits

Yay, I’m so excited! I found healthy biscuits for my daughter to snack on…!! ⠀ Ok, I’m going to be honest here. Back in the day, it wasn’t uncommon for me to start my day with a nice strong instant coffee with around 3-4 processed biscuits each morning. That was my breakfast. And I had no idea what I was eating or doing to my body to set myself up for the day. ⠀ When I first started my healthier…

Free range vs caged eggs

Sundays are for a free-range eggy brekky. 🍳 If you try non-free range eggs and compare eggs from chickens raised in a backyard or farm which free roam, you’ll notice in the free range option: The colour of the yolk will be a vibrant yellow rather than a pale yellow, the taste will be incredible as opposed to bland, and you will know they are better for you as they are fed food scraps, are allowed to free roam to eat…

Mayver’s Peanut & Cacao Spread

It was CHOCOLATE week in the UK last week – and chocolate week is always a good thing! 😋🍫⠀ So to celebrate, we’re sharing our latest gooey chocolatey find.⠀ But before we share the love, did you know that there is a difference between Cocoa and Cacao powder – and one is better than the other?⠀ According to iquitsugar.com, raw cacao powder is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cocoa and removes…

Bellamy’s Organic Fruit Snacks

Want to give your little ones a healthy snack with a little crunch? 👶🏻 My little Juliet likes variety – just like her mumma (and I’m guessing like most of us). Which means that breakfast and snack time which was previously just soft mushy food wasn’t cutting it once her toothie pegs showed up. I’m not big on processed foods if you haven’t noticed by now, so off I went to the supermarket and chemist shelves to search for organic…

Sanitarium Weet-Bix for Kids

Have you ever considered buying kid’s foods for adults to eat as they have less additives? I recently came across Weet-Bix for Kids once my little Juliet started eating solids. After a closer look, I noticed that the adult version contains salt which isn’t in the kids’ version. I never really understood why salt needed to be added to an adult breakfast cereal. It just doesn’t make sense to me. And whilst I’m not altogether happy either one contains sugar,…

Sugar Addict.

Are you a sugar addict? It’s hard not to be when sugar is added to so many of our food and drinks; often, we don’t even know it. It’s already naturally occurring within most of our daily fruit intake, so why add it? Because it makes everything taste better. And it’s addictive as it causes a dopamine release to the brain, so we want more and more. And so we buy more and more sugar-laden products keeping big business in…

Why coconut oil is so good

It’s time to go tropical! Coconut Oil – Boy, is it good for nearly everything! And it’s even better when you find it at Aldi (Australia) for $4.99 – and it tastes incredible. In our family, we use coconut oil in our cooking, smoothies, as a moisturiser, on scars, in our baby’s bath water, oil pulling** and we eat a teaspoon every night (including bubs – and she loves it!). Coconut oil contains short-term medium-chain saturated fatty acids (MCFAs), which…
