    What I Ate Today #coeliac #glutenfree

    I love producing what I ate today posts. I cannot tell you how many times I have gone back to these posts for meal ideas and just to see what I was scoffing. As I mentioned in previous posts, this is not real time, this post was from June when I was taking a break from blogging. Here is what I ate on Monday 15th June 2020. Breakfast – 7.00am  Nothing unusual here – a bowl of scrumptious gluten free porridge, mixed up with my favourite probiotic Biomel. I recently tried a new peanut butter and absolutely love it. The Meridian Smooth Peanut Butter is delicious, it is a little…

    What I Ate Today – Coeliac Gluten Free

    What I Ate Today BREAKFAST No matter how hard I try I cannot steer myself away from a good hearty bowl of porridge. I love Asda Free From Porridge Oats (40g) in a bowl with a dark chocolate Biomel and a dollop of peanut butter. This genuinely fills me up for a good 4 hours. MID MORNING SNACK Another favourite as you will know, a salted caramel Nakd Bar. Absolutely delicious and a perfect snack to keep me going. LUNCH Two things I can no longer stomach at the moment but on this particular day I made eggs, turkey bacon, cheese and cherry tomatoes. Eggs really upset my tummy if…

    What My 5 Year Old Eats In A Day

    Here is what my 5 year old eats on a normal school day. Charlie has quite a healthy balanced diet, he does have a very sweet tooth but more often than not he chooses the healthy option. BREAKFAST I like to start Charlie’s day off with a good hearty breakfast as he tends to wake up between 5am – 6am at the moment. He has always been an early riser as was/am I, so he gets hungry quite a lot. Here he is having a big bowl of porridge with milk, a drizzle of Sweet Freedom Fruit Syrup and a small bowl of cashews/raisins. It looks like a big portion…

    What I Eat In A Day

    Happy Tuesday guys!! I hope you all had a brilliant bank holiday weekend, no school runs – whoop whoop! Lots of people have messaged me to ask what I’m currently eating, so one day last week I tracked everything I ate and here it is. 6.15am This was an early start but I’m used to getting up before my alarm goes off. I’ve always been a morning person and find it easy to get up and get cracking with the day. I start my morning with taking Thyroxine for my underactive thyroid, I let this go down for around 15 – 20 minutes then I have a probiotic. The only…

    What I Ate Today

    I made it through the day without anymore illness – yay! Here’s what I ate today… Breakfast Yoghurt with a fruit layer, I love these. They are so delicious and not chalky like some thick breakfast yoghurt, plus this keeps me full for hours. Lunch For lunch I made a quick salad of spicy turkey (thin) steak, peppers, boiled egg and a dollop of extra light mayo. Snack I don’t know what it is but, whenever I have a sickness bug I’m ravenous the next day (when I’m feeling better). I was craving some choccie biscuits and a good old cuppa tea. Dinner I made turkey mince bolognese for dinner…

    What My Children Eat During The Summer Holidays

    My children are eating me out of house and home this summer holiday. As soon as breakfast is over they are asking if it is lunch time, seriously how hungry can they really be?? My shopping bill has increased by a good £20 just on snacks and extra “bits” for them, they act like they’ve never been fed in their lives. Here is a good day of eating for them, they love to graze during the day but I try to limit the snack attacks. Breakfast This morning the rugrats had, Aldi crumpets topped with Nutella along with strawberries and a glass of milk. This is not an everyday breakfast,…

    What I Ate Today

    What I ate today (Thursday) wasn’t really that exciting, I don’t know about you but when it is roasting outside my eating habits are all over the shop. One minute I’m not hungry and the next I’m ravenous, anyway here is today’s eats. Breakfast – 6.30am I had one of my favourite combos this morning, a nakd bar and a Granny Smith apple. I’ve started putting my apples in the fridge, they last so much longer and are super tasty. Lunch – 12pm You are going to look at this and think how disgusting I am. I promise these foods put together taste really nice. I mix my tin of tuna with…

    What My 4 Year Old Ate Today

    4 year olds are a tricky bunch to please and I find most of my battles with Charlie are over food. I have learnt very well to pick my battles with both children especially at meal times, so here is what Charlie ate today. Breakfast This morning Charlie ate, sourdough toast with flora spread and marmite. I also gave him a small bowl of strawberries along with a drink of milk. Lunch It was a preschool day so I packed him up with a cheese mini wrap, a pot of raspberries and strawberries, a Yeo yoghurt, some BBQ Mini Cheddars, Bear Paws and an apple juice. He ate everything apart…

    My Fussy Eater

    As a parent you go through phases with your children, the sleep regression, wonder weeks, growth spurts, throwing tantrums and what I think is possibly the most challenging – fussy eating. Amelie was a good eater until the age of 12 months, suddenly overnight she turned into a fuss pot. I found this extremely hard to deal with as I would spend ages in the kitchen prepping and cooking meals from scratch only for her to throw it on the floor or up the wall. I got cross and had numerous breakdowns. She came through this though but it wasn’t until she started Reception that she would try new foods,…
