Family Days Out- Eating Clean
25th May 2015

Amazing family day out at ‪#‎Geronimofest‬ Tatton Park. Amber even braved the 60ft zip wire! I was really impressed by the food on offer, it was easy to make good food choices with everything from Indian street food, home made fish fingers, herbal teas in the little coffee caravan, Portuguese sardines and even grilled halloumi. […]

‘Clean’ drinks for little ones
21st May 2015

The media has covered recently the impact of regularly giving children fizzy drinks, juices and cordials on both dental health and overall health. We now know that in fact fructose plays a key part in this. Firstly out of your ‘five a day’ recommendation I would advise that 4 of these are vegetables rather than […]

Broccoli Lollipops and other bizarre things
21st May 2015

Amber suprises me most days with something new and wonderful. Broccoli lollipops however, was something I certainly was not expecting! We have a big bag of frozen vegetables in the bottom of the kitchen freezer for back-up purposes when stock is running low. Amber discovered the broccoli and decided this was the best ‘olli-pop’ ever! […]

Teething Ice Lollies… Sophie Style
21st May 2015

Is your little one teething? It looks like Edward has the top four teeth coming through. I can recommend these ‘clean’ ice lollies for their sore gums. Blend half a tin of coconut milk with an avocado and freeze in moulds. I recommend you use Aroy-D coconut milk which is available in a box from […]

Amber Loves EGGS!
16th May 2015

Amber really enjoys eggs with her breakfast. I always try and make them as interesting or tasty as possible- she has made her own egg cups, I have made fried eggs into smiley faces or she has scrambled eggs with bacon bits. Admittedly she does go through phases of which kind she likes- but luckily […]

Amber the Pie Eater
13th May 2015

My clean cottage pie recipe is a total winner for a Sunday dinner. For more details on the recipe visit the ‘Be Inspired’ section of the website. Team this up with braised cabbage or a plate full of greens with butter on, and you have a winner. Did you know that adding fats to your […]

Amber loves breakfast
13th May 2015

Amber LOVES her breakfast. Typically she likes #ClarenceCourt #BurfordBrown eggs with #LaverstokePark black pudding and some grilled tomatoes. I have no issue with this, it’s a great start to the day especially with some #Kerrygold grass-fed butter in the scrambled eggs. If she isn’t in the mood for the ‘full hit’ as she calls it, […]

With Kids
Amber the Steak Thief
13th May 2015

I was pretty impressed when, at just over 2 years old Amber’s favourite game was to steal her Dad’s well earned steak. I say well earned- Edward was a few weeks old and it was our first family meal out together. I think Chris was hoping the steak was all his, afterall prior to this […]

Peter Rabbit Soup
13th May 2015

Amber loves soup. It is a great way to increase her vegetable intake during the day- anything goes, from butternut squash to cauliflower. This week we got tonnes of greens in our organic vegetable box- and LOADS of lettuce. This one is ‘Peter Rabbit Soup’ with his favourite ingredients, garden peas, celeriac and lettuce with […]
