Healthy Eating: Homemade Bread

We have recently been quite busy, resulting in having a few too many convenience meals! We normally eat quite healthy, so I am on a mission to start us all eating well again! One of my first steps towards healthy eating: mastering homemade bread! It has been quite a journey, and I am nowhere near having mastered this task, but I have found a great recipe that worked for me, so I’d love to share it with you!

If you haven’t yet figured it out: I love minimalism!

The Sane Mum’s Meal Planning

In support of utilising each and every moment of your life purposefully, in this section I will provide my Meal Plans with links to recipes and full shopping lists! I find that Meal Planning is a huge sanity-saver and it is a crucial step in eliminating over-spending on last minute shopping trips and take-out. This is also the place where I will talk about once-a-month-shopping and how it helps us stay on budget and how it ties in with my Meal Planning.

Amazing Guide to Lunches by Kylie from Kidgredients

As a lover of monthly shopping and fool-proof kid recipes, it is my pleasure to recommend The Kidgredients Guide to Awesome Lunches! It is not just a recipe book, but a great resource, packed with fantastic information about health and nutrition, lunchbox packing tips, as well as my favourite: tips for once-a-month-baking! I’ve already got my copy: having pre-prepared lunches in the freezer is extremely useful not just when you have to have a lunchbox ready every day for school, but also when you homeschool! I am very excited to be an affiliate for Kylie’s amazing book, because I do truly think it is brilliant! Best of all, it is only $10.00!

*As an affiliate I will get a small commission when you purchase the book, however it comes at NO extra cost to you!

Here’s a Beetroot Risotto I threw together the other day from things that were in my pantry, which took me 40 minutes total, and the kids absolutely loved it!!     Continue reading
