Lest we forget.
Today is Anzac Day in Australia. A day that we remember Australians who served and died in all wars.
The 25th of April also marks the day in which the first major military action was fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during WWI and the landing of Australian and New Zealand soldiers at Gallipoli in Turkey.
This year marks the 100th year anniversary of that landing in 1915.
I LOVE it when my mum comes to stay. I love it even more when she cooks us dinner and I don’t have to think about a thing.
My mum and sister came to visit us last week and on their last night here my mum made this delicious bolognese.
It’s so simple and easy and is packed full of nutrients for growing little tummies.
Plus it will keep you warm on those cold winter nights.
I know it might seem like a weird combination but this sushi is a real hit in our household. It’s a great lunchtime or snack option.
Sushi is a perfect first finger food and an easy way to fill little tummies. This version is made without seaweed and you can add other fruit (or savoury) combinations to suit your tastes.
Sushi also isn’t that hard to make, so don’t be scared off! It can be made and on the table within 30 minutes and that includes the cooking of the rice.
Broccoli is my go-to staple whenever any of us are sick. It’s a powerhouse of vitamin C and stacked with other vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, iron, vitamin K, B-complex vitamins, zinc, phosphorus and phyto-nutrients.
We’ve all been horribly sick over the past few days and now that our stomachs are able to handle any food I wanted to pack as many bug-fighting nutrients as I could into one dish to help us continue on the path to recovery.
Not only has this pasta got hidden broccoli, but it has also got some sneaky spinach in there too which is a great source of iron and loaded with antioxidants.
I’m sure I’ve said it before but breakfast really is my favourite meal of the day. Often I’m thinking about what I’ll have for breakfast the next morning at night before I go to bed.
This berry nice porridge (sorry, just had to use that pun) is so quick and simple to whip up and makes for the perfect healthy weekday breakfast.
It’s one of my go-to staples for Molly, because she loves porridge for breakfast and can be on the table in under five-minutes.
