🚗I’m hitting the road with Caleb (our very first mommy son trip) this morning to spend some much needed quality time with my sister’s family! 😍😍Since we’ll be gone for 4 days and I don’t want to spend too much time in her kitchen, I decided to do a bit of meal prep
👩🏻🍳Here’s what I’m taking with us. I know my sister will have rice, noodles, etc. so I focused on veggies. I feel like for both adults and kids alike, getting our veggies in is the most challenging part while traveling. This may seem like a lot, but I’d rather have too much than not enough 😊
✅Roasted butternut squash and purple sweet potato
✅didn’t want to pack the spiralizer so I went ahead and spiralized
parsnips, green bell peppers, carrots (will chop and serve raw or cook there 👍)
✅low sodium ezekiel bread (for when we’re dining out as a way to keep the sodium intake down)
✅canned sardines (not sure if I’ll actually use it, but just in case)
✅broccoli pizza muffins (from 2nd e-cookbook 👍Check out instastory to see Caleb enjoying one yesterday)
We have a long drive ahead of us! Really hoping Caleb will take a nice long nap! 🙏🏻🙏🏻 we will miss you, daddy!! 😢😢

That night he had a stomachache!
Like the very hungry caterpillar, our chief taster came down with a slight bout of stomach flu over the weekend. We served up some happy animals which included banana, our version of apple sauce and toast - and he felt much better after 🐱

Yesterday my 6 yo & 4 yo wanted to open a stall from home selling Organic Fresh Juice and Immune Boost gummies. They were very innovative and loved using their imaginations, logic and design by working out ingredients, purchasing ingredients from our organic F&V supplier, making signs, doing costings, designing their stall and then promoting it to their friends. They loved making the individual juices for their customers and enjoyed working out the cost and if any change was required. It was a bit like Moby cafe in #torquay as the kids bought a juice and then had a play in our backyard playground. Fun morning had by us all. Great work boys, love being your mum! A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS! We were also lucky enough to visit two other children's stalls on the weekend well done girls on your stalls too.
Mommy & Me workout with two of my kids. We had so much fun! Kaden really got into it. I let him pick the songs and work the camera to record the videos. We did half of a deck on the Sweat Deck app and some kettlebell work. My daughter joined in towards the end but got shy when she realized I was filming her.
While we had a great time I was brought present to the fact that kids worry about their weight too. Kaden told me he wanted to workout because his stomach is big. In no way is he overweight, but his stomach feels big after eating certain things, like cheese. (He loves cheese!) So, we had a talk about cheese and ice cream causing bloat and making your stomach feel big or upset after you eat it. Educate your kids on WHY dietary changes are being made so that they understand what’s happening. I noticed that he feels so empowered when he’s CHOOSING healthy foods.

This is the virus that causes #Measles . Measles is a very contagious and serious respiratory disease (in the lungs and breathing tubes). It causes a rash and fever, and can lead to other serious illnesses. In rare cases, it can be deadly.
Worldwide, an estimated 10 million people are affected by measles each year, and it can travel to the U.S. through unvaccinated U.S. residents or visitors, who get the virus while they are abroad.
Because of the MMR shot (measles-mumps-rubella shot), measles has become much less common in the U.S. Doctors recommend that your child get 2 doses of the MMR shot for best protection. Talk to your doctor today to make sure your child is up-to-date on vaccinations.

[HELPING KIDS WITH ARGUMENTS] *
All started with a small water gun that Luan got at a birthday’s party... These cuties started playing with it, then they decided to put on their swimming costumes, then they decided to empty the all kitchen of its bowls and utensils 😂, then they started arguing for the bowls and ustensiles 🥣🥄😡
They came to us (their mothers) complaining about who took which ustensile etc... *
We kept in alignment giving them some advices: *
1️⃣ “Understand each other” Often children who argue are so caught up in being right, they forget to think about how the other person may be feeling.
2️⃣”Was it correct to tear this bowl away from her?” As a parent we have a role here to play to help our children to admit when they are wrong but it can take away the fuel that feeds many arguments. As adults we have to practice what we preach. I let my children see moments when I admit I was wrong and try to make amends.
3️⃣”Find a compromise”. We help our children to understand what compromise is (when a common agreement or solution is reached) and why’s it’s a valuable tool to use in any relationship. *
Then we let them manage. They ended up playing peacefully, cleaning the all balcony, putting the things away, even tidying up the bedroom and getting themselves ready for the soccer game ⚽️👌😍

Tomatoes from the branch! We visited some friends and Nina was in love with their potted tomatoes... Seriously! As the #eatingchamp she is, she ate more than 10 of them 😋🍅 I guess I need to buy some new tomatoes for them!!!
This curry is a bit of a mix up. Sometimes when I cook I go too far off track trying to get extra goodness into the kids- this time I threw a can of kidney beans into the processor with a can of tomatoes to bulk up the sauce & for some extra protein... it's actually not a bad curry & both boys loved it but for myself I prefer no beans. I also made the daddio a chicken curry at the same time, yellow rice (brown rice which the daddio complained about 🙄) & the broccoli balls at the same time. Such a busy day!!!
