Breakfast in 3 minutes? Yes please!

Thursday, October 12, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
Mornings can be pretty hectic, can't they? (Especially if you have school-aged children)! But as crazy as they can be, we all know that fitting breakfast in is ideal. Why? Well, we've been fasting overnight while we sleep, so it's really important that we break the fast (ie breakfast) with some good quality nutrition. This gets our metabolism moving and our energy levels g ..

Are you a tired, emotional eater? You're not alone!

Thursday, October 05, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
Scroll through social media these days, and chances are you'll see a post or meme about mums and their need to drink wine to get through the day! I totally get it - never-ending nappy changes, struggling to get your kids to sleep, toddler tantrums, etc - some days can be pretty challenging! Throw in lack of sleep and it's the perfect state for craving wine... Or chocolate... Or whate ..

Dairy Free Spinach and Basil Muffins

We had a family birthday celebration on the weekend, and one of the members of our clan has just found out that she is lactose intolerant.

So I found a recipe for these muffins and substituted a few ingredients with some ..

New Recipe: Easy to Make Energy Balls

Thursday, August 03, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
I realized this week that I'm turning into my mother. I watched as my little girl tucked into every other child's food at our Mums n Bubs class, because it looked way more exciting than the boring fruit I had packed her. And I had flashbacks of my own childhood - the number of times I rolled my eyes as I opened my lunchbox to find "boring old fruit!" (Such a tough life!) So this ..

What's in my fridge?

Thursday, July 27, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
Meal prepping. If you've been following me for a while, you'll know it's something I love to do! Basically, a couple of times a week, I "shop n chop," ie I shop and then on the same day, I chop and cook up all of our main meals for the next 3-4 days. It takes a couple of hours, but it's so worth it! (No more scrambling to make dinner at witching hour)! Anyway, this ..

This week, I got a pleasant surprise!

Thursday, June 29, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
So, this week I had my measurements taken. I've been measuring every 12 weeks since I started training again after having Noah. And this week, I got a pleasant surprise! The first measurements were taken in January, and the second lot were done this week. (Obviously, we took a lot more sites this week!) But to say I was happy, is an understatement! I didn't fe ..
