Red Meat & The Weightloss Edit: Mama’s Beef & Leek “Not Quite” Pie

Red meat is an important part of our diet but it's had a lot of bad press recently. As far as I'm concerned, the saying 'Everything in moderation' applies here. Red meat is a great source of Iron and lost of other vitamins like zinc, potassium, B3, B6 and B12.

I’m a firm believer that a balanced diet means just that; a balance of all the food groups (even the naughty ones!) There are so many fad diets and confusing information that it’s easy to get mystified as to what we should and shouldn’t be feeding ourselves and our kids.

Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato & Chicken Korma| MummyMamaMum

With the financial carnage of December still impacting our bank balance, couple with the (*gasp*) veg shortage this month, I have been looking for ways to bulk out meals we usually eat. This is one of those concoctions, and I have to say it worked bloody well!

28 Days of Happy| MummyMamaMum

January can be a really tough month, and as the end of the month (pay-daaaaaaaaay!) approaches I have been thinking a lot about happiness. It’s so easy to get bogged down with the shit parts of life, especially at this time of year. The high of Christmas has dissipated, the funds available in my bank have equally dissipated, the house is bare of all the sparkle that came with December (seriously, my face when the Christmas tree arrived!) and life is back to normal, monotonous days filled with washing, de-cluttering post Christmas, still trying to find homes for all the new toys that don’t involve making my house look like a pre-school on hallucinogenic drugs.
