The Healthy Eating Begins!

I admit it…I’m a total sugar monster. If it’s not chocolate I can usually be found snacking on ice-cream, sugary cereals, biscuits or my main nemesis – crisps. They are quick, easy, take no preparation and are pretty enjoyable! However…they make me feel rotten.

At the moment I’m still breastfeeding my twins about three times every night and it’s during these awakenings that I tend to feel the worst. It’s probably because I’ve spent all evening whilst they’ve been blissfully dreaming scoffing my face with whatever the pantry offers – I could class it as an evening hobby.

I’ve recently been inspired by a few people who seem to have changed their lives for the better by radically changing their diet. I was shown a book by a relative called Deliciously Ella, by Ella Woodward. Having been diagnosed with a horrible illness she managed to turn her life around and come off all medication by following a strict vegan gluten free diet. I’ve always been sceptical as to whether or not this diet is as healthy as everyone says (and tasty?!) but my husband, having recovered from testicular cancer had researched and had also found similar stories.  Eat better = feel better it seems.

So, I thought, why not give it a go? And to my relief it’s actually pretty good! At the moment I’ve made small changes here and there towards a healthier lifestyle and I’m quite excited about feeling healthier and being more energetic for my kids’ sake too!

So, for your inspiration and hopefully to tempt those taste buds, here’s our week’s fruit and veg shop above! I don’t know about you but I think that looks pretty delicious! What do you reckon?

Welcome!

Hi! My name is Eloise and I’m a very blessed Mummy to three beautiful children – a sensitive and thoughtful little 3 year old and fearless 17 month old boy/girl twins.

I never thought I’d get to be a Mum but now I am I feel a great responsibility to these kids to raise them well, to nourish them and provide a wealth of happy memories. Parenting is not easy. It’s an enormous learning curve – for the kids and us parents but we hope one day they’ll look back and say we did a good job.

I honestly believe one of the most important things you can do for your kids is to look after yourself. A healthy and happy mum, inside and out, physically and mentally can only be a good thing.

Follow me on my journey, the ups and downs, adventures and missions as I aim to bring you my own experiences of becoming that healthy mum I strive daily to be – the good days, bad days and all the crazy in between!
