Hi I'm Caroline,
I am a mum of three hungry, energetic boys. I love to lead a healthy lifestyle not just for myself but also for my family. Life is busy and as a mum I'm always looking for fast, healthy ways to feed my kids. I'm passionate about preservative free foods, alternatives to refined foods and cutting out refined sugar which is so abundant in our food industry. Easy to follow recipes and helpful hints on our I live my day to day in the kitchen.

First recipe for 2019 and couldn’t be more happy to share this earthy, nutritious, vegan salad with you.
Slowly getting back into routine as the new year has well and truly begun. With Summer entertaining, drinking, and lets be honest over eating, I am glad to be getting back to some sort of normal eating regime. My body was feeling sluggish, under nourished and lethargic. But we all do deserve to enjoy the festive season and indulging with family and friends is all part of the spirit of Christmas/New Years after all.
