So, there was some raisin bread on special last week and I thought I'd grab some for Isabella. We never have bread in our house, so I thought it might be nice for her to try. She finished the loaf within 2 days (with some help from her Mummy and Daddy - this is why we don't have bread in the house!) and so it's safe to say she liked it. I bought some more today, and wanted to cha ..

Tuesday, April 19, 2016 | By Rachael Archer

What 3 words spring to mind when you think of the word, "diet?" For example, the Lemon Detox diet, where you only consume lemon drinks for a week to 10 days. Or the Cabbage Soup diet, where you eat cabbage soup ONLY for 7 days. Um, no thanks! When I look at diets like these, this is what I think of: - It's completely unsustainable: You can't possibly eat that way long term. ..

Recently, I decided to get serious about getting leaner. I wanted to prove (mainly to myself) that even though I'd had a baby, my body was still capable of being fit, strong and toned. I eat well most of the time and workout several times throughout the week, but I wasn't seeing much progress... So what did I have to change? Well, actually, not that much. However, I was mis ..

5 Easy Ways to Eat Healthier: Part 2

Wednesday, January 20, 2016 | By Rachael Archer
I don't know about you, but at the end of a long day with a baby/toddler, I don't really feel like standing in front of the stove and cooking a meal. In fact, it very rarely happens in our household. "Do you eat dinner?" I hear you ask. Yep, we do. Only I have all of our meals cooked in advance. Twice a week, I do the "shop 'n chop" - I buy groceries, I bring them home, chop up  ..
