Milk bath: homemade

  It’s well known that milk is good for our bones, but for centuries it’s been used for another benefit too: for moisturising and rejuvenating the skin. Since milk contains lactic acid, it’s an effective all-natural cleanser that leaves your skin feeling soft and supple and being also rich in Vitamin E and zinc, both of which slow down the process of aging, it allows the skin to retain its…

Banana Muffins

Since we follow paleo as a guide, Guy has the same diverse, nutritionally dense day-to-day diet as we do. But just as we cheat now and then to enjoy the odd treat, we allow Guy treats of his own too – sometimes these are healthy treats (like these bear fruit paws which he loves and gets as excited about as if they were proper sweets), but just now and then they’re…

Pregnancy nutrition

Just like last time when I learned I was expecting, one of the first things I’ve done is to immediately scrutinise my nutritional intake. Since I generally keep my diet to paleo guidelines, I have a very varied and nutritionally dense diet on the whole, so my little one should be receiving most of the vital nutrients needed. But babies require certain things in different quantities for their development…

Berry breakfast

I’m a firm believer in the theory that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. It’s the fuel we need to kickstart the day and most of us feel tired and lacklustre by late morning if we’ve forgotten it.     Now I can’t pretend I don’t hesitate to leap off the Paleo wagon now and then, especially when hotels put on an extravagant buffet of cloud-like French…

Chocolate chip cookies

You can’t really beat a homemade cookie. The store bought ones are fine in a pinch, but there’s nothing quite like the taste of a freshly baked cookie.     I have one go-to recipe for cookies whenever guests pop over. These are incredibly easy to whip up, never fail me, and are that perfect combination of crunchy, gooey, buttery and sweet-but-not-too-sweet. Jamie…

Choccoloaf

This was a recipe we’ve been meaning to test out for a while.     We found it lurking in an old recipe book of my grandmother’s, full of a host of bizarre sounding culinary attempts and written down in the scrawliest pencil writing we’ve ever tried to decipher. Having made some sort of sense of it, we made a few adjustments and put it to…

A moment in time

From the moment your little one arrives in the world, eyes screwed tight, rosy mouth wide open, hands the size of coins wrapped tight around your finger clinging on, any parent will know the joy of that moment – that feeling of being emotionally filled to the brim by it all.     For a mother, physically drained from the exertion of bringing this tiny…
