School lunch ideas- My kids don’t like sandwiches

Is it just me or are the weeks going by way too fast? Those of you who have liked my facebook page know that this last week I’ve had sick kids, school productions and then, just as we are ready to go into the weekend with everyone better, I get sick. I am the worst sick person ever. Man flu aint got nothin’ on me.  So I was very pitiful Friday and Saturday, but by lunchtime Sunday I was (thankfully) feeling much better. Hubby did his best with the daily stuff that happens in a house, helped out with the kids and brought me tea and paracetamol. I didn’t say anything , as I really appreciated everything he did, but you know, there are some things that men just don’t see. When I dragged myself off the couch and into the kitchen, the benches hadn’t been wiped down and the sink was dirty. Thankfully with the help of olive leaf extract and propolis I’m feeling better, and hubby has been reminded of how much I do around here 😉 Continue reading

Muuuuum! I’m hungry! Wheat based vanilla cake and gluten free bread

So, it took a whole of 2 minutes on school holidays before my kids started with cries of hunger. Me: “Seriously, you just ate breakfast 10minutes ago, didn’t you?!”  Or maybe that was me… “What time did you kids get up this morning?”

Kids: “It was light outside mum”  in other words, it was really early and we don’t want to say exactly what time it was. Continue reading

Friday night, no pizza?

So, it’s Friday today. The school week is at an end (notice I didn’t say working week – the weekends are more work than a weekday!). Tonight is relax in front of the tv night, so that is always fun. The kids have already agreed upon a movie that they all want to watch. Even better. No arguing later about which movie they will choose. Master B often pulls out the ‘I’m the only boy boo hoo’ card when it comes to movies. Being the oldest also, means he wants to watch things that aren’t always appropriate for his younger sisters. But family movie night’s are just that, something appropriate for the whole family.

We are struggling a bit with our food journey. Hubby is struggling with the lack of (good) bread. I am too. I love bread. Really love it. We’ve tried gluten free bread but it’s still quite refined and it isn’t awesome. To top it off, his psoriasis doesn’t seem to be clearing up. Not sure if we should jump in and go the full auto immune protocol for the next 30 days or not… Anyone out there have experience with Guttate psoriasis and the autoimmune protocol? There is so much conflicting information out there, it’s easy to get confused.  I’m trying my best to support hubby, Continue reading
