Dairy & Gluten Free Pancakes : No fuss breakfast wisdom

Tuesday 24 May 2016

I just adore pancakes, and my must have treat when we visit Canada is going out for breakfast as often as I can persuade my husband to and indulging in a big stack, my favourite being chocolate and peanut butter chip! So it was particularly difficult on our trip back in May last year when I couldn't indulge myself because I was still breast feeding my then diary free baby, however I have been experimenting with a dairy/gluten free version at home and these ones I made a while ago got a big thumbs up not just me but from the girls too.

Pearl of Wisdom No. 85 - make morning routine.

Thursday 12 May 2016

Make. Morning. Routine.

Sounds so boring doesn't it?!

If you ask my husband about me and routine when we first met he would tell you that I would balk at the idea and do what ever I could to sabotage his attempts at getting me in to one, especially in the mornings. He however has been the master of them since the dawn of time (slight exaggeration but this man thrives on routine!) and you could set your watch by what he did and when he did it.

Pearl of Wisdom No.84 - Live like Spring

Saturday 26 March 2016

If you want a fresh, brand new, shiny feeling when you go about your days (and who doesn't want to feel this way right?) then embracing this season is the key to success!

But what exactly does it mean to live like...Spring?!

Chocolate Avocado Cookies (Diary and Gluten Free)

Wednesday 3 February 2016

So here is my first Wisdom in the Kitchen recipe, I've been asked a lot for this one. I love that they taste so indulgent so you feel like you're getting a treat, they have a great soft chewy quality to them but you know that you're getting all the goodness of avocado, even my girls love them which is a massive bonus and makes for a happy mama!

Pearl of Wisdom No.83 - Making resolutions

Friday 22 January 2016

Is January meant to be a fresh start for you or do you believe that new year, new you is a load of rubbish? Where do you stand on resolutions?

Did you know that only 8% of people who make New Years resolutions actually achieve them? However statistics also show that people who specifically make resolutions are 10 times more likely to be success at achieving their goals and plans! 

Now we're half way through this month already, it feels like January is just slipping away and February is just around the corner! For me that may be because I have a jam packed month ahead which I don't feel anywhere near prepared for, maybe for you it's because you still haven't quite settled on what you want from the year ahead. Maybe you wanted to set some intentions, focus on finding your passion or commit to something that will bring you one step closer to your goals and dreams, or maybe you don't know what you want from life this year so you wanted to spend some time mulling it all over and feeling a bit stuck - if this sounds like you then stick with me my friend!

Pearl of Wisdom No.82 - Digital Detoxing

Tuesday 5 January 2016

I'm sure you've read, seen or heard about how smart phones, tablets and even too much TV is turning humanity into unsocial techno zombies who can't live with out there devices by their side right? Did you ever consider that it could also be influencing how you identified yourself with the world and the affect that has on your well being and self esteem ?
