making icecream.....my favourite recipe here.
What a day......life with two children is certainly a little more hectic than one. I am finding my rhythm a little more day by day, however getting all of us out of the house before 9am is a real struggle - especially trying to fit in a shower, emptying the dishwasher, make breakfast (eggs), pack a lunch box, amongst other things.Abbie attends a lovely Steiner inspired family daycare two days a week and although it is lovely to have some time to myself, I never seem to get much time to myself after the washing, tidying, cleaning and cooking is done. I always have grand plans to sew this and that, however now with my Milly, I have resigned myself to the fact that it is just not happening at this stage of life.
Just getting the washing done, a walk to the park or visit to a friend and a nourishing meal on the table are my daily goals...... and a cup of tea is a bonus.Given my passion for nutrition and wanting to make super nutritious meals for my family all the time, I seem to spend all my time managing the contents of my fridge, meal planning and cooking. At first when we started to eat like this I was really overwhelmed about how I was going to cook meals with very limited or no grain/ legumes, incorporating bone broth and meat and do this 7 nights a week!But I can say that after about a year I am feeling confident that I am doing it and have decided to share what I have learnt with you. As a mama* the most helpful thing I would have found when embarking on eating real food, would have been an achievable meal plan. Something that can be done and doesn't require a million ingredients. Something that takes into account what you may have left over from a previous meal and will be able to use for the next and hence save time.My big girl is off on an adventure with her Dad this weekend, so Milly and I are looking forward to some more time together and hopefully I shall get a moment to write up my first meal plan for 7 days. Is this something you would use? I'd love to know what you think. Even if you don't usually comment, come on, join in the conversation!
* Well as Abbie's mama, she has taken to calling me "mama" since yesterday. and not just calling it once, saying it continuously even when I am looking right at her. My sweet girl is getting cheeky.
