As a Nutritional Therapist, I’m always being asked what I feed my family of four day to day.
Our family is very typical and has it’s various food challenges..
My husband Alex, is a dustbin. Tall and lean he needs fuel to give him the stamina to march around the hospital wards, plus a broad spectrum of nutrients to help him fight off any nasty bugs he may encounter along the way.
Our ten year old daughter is keen on sports. Keeping extremely active, she needs a good balance of protein, fat and slow carbs to keep her going all through the day.
Fortunately, she’ll eat almost anything (except mushrooms and prawns), and has even been known to say ‘I love salad’. However, it wasn’t always this way. For the first two years of life she only ate a small handful of foods.
Our four year old son, is a healthy eater in training.
Having been an easy to feed baby that grabbed roast beef and mashed potato off your plate, and absolutely loved spinach, he’s going through a fussy phase.
He gravitates towards anything laden with sugar and needs persuading to eat his veg. Let’s just say….he’s a work in progress.
If you’ve read our about page, you’ll know that I was a fat child, with numerous health complaints (acne, ear infections, IBS, low thyroid to name a few).
Since cracking my ‘food code’ and solving my health problems I’ve been dedicated to cooking deliciously healthy recipes for myself and my family.
Here you’ll find some of our favourite meals and snacks.
I hope you enjoy them.
