Did you know that sesame seeds are one of the best calcium foods we can include in our diet? One heaped tbsp of tahini (toasted ground sesame seeds) contains 100mg of calcium. That’s almost equivalent to 100ml of milk.
These muffins are super easy to make and make a delicious snack for both children and adults. Nutritionally, these muffins are gluten-free, a great source of protein and fiber and a source of iron. And of course, they are dairy free. What a bonus.
Were you told to wait until 6 months before you wean your baby? This information is not entirely true. Allow me to explain….
I believe that if we are to have breakfast (only eat when you are hungry, right?) then we must ensure it is a healthy and balanced breakfast.
I am not keen on cereals. I think they are causing more harm to the population than we want to admit (obesity, type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, high blood sugars, sugar cravings etc.).
It is not often I have breakfast but when I do, it’s always a well-balanced breakfast. Like this buckwheat granola.
Back home in Denmark, it’s all about ‘hygge’ (consciously creating the space to enjoy life) and it’s standard to enjoy some homebaked bread as part of a continental breakfast on the weekends.
Not only do these buns bring hygge to your weekend, but they are also super nutritious, dairy free and egg free.
Colic, characterised by prolonged periods of inconsolable crying, affects up to 40 percent of young infants worldwide. The condition is often dismissed as trivial, but I believe it should be treated seriously. Colic can contribute to postpartum depression and interfere with breastfeeding.
Colic is pain. These babies aren’t just crying for no reason.
I believe in treating colic from a level of CAUSE. What is the cause and what can we do about it?
Spelt is an ancient whole grain which I love to use in my baking. So why not make pancakes with spelt! These are dairy and soya free!
Join me for 21 day of meditation with Deepak Chopra this Spring.
Qi is the life force that flows through all things. Everything in the universe derives from qi. When qi flows properly, all things are in harmony and function correctly; when qi is blocked, problems arise.
According to Chinese medicine, the Liver and Gallbladder correspond to the Spring season.
The liver being the center for detoxification is encouraging us to release, to find lightness in our life and balance to our Qi.
All on a Mind-Body-Spirit Level.
In order to reduce the risk of peanut allergy, babies should be given peanuts early – some at four months old (when they are weaning ready).
Since TJ was 4 weeks old he has battled every night without fail with what we were told was ‘colic’ & reflux.
Unfortunately, breastfeeding didn’t work out for us so we moved onto formulas.
He has been on 6 different formulas since and none of them have agreed with him.
Watching your baby in agony, inconsolable night after night and not being able to help was heart-breaking but it sent me on a mission to solve the problem.
Even after being told 100 times there wasn’t one having made many trips back and forth to the doctors, being made to feel silly and at times like crazy neurotic first time parents!
