Thank you to my gorgeous family and friends for inspiring me to put my much loved recipes online. Thank you to also the amazing Foodie and Mummie blogging community for your support and enthusiasm.
Ruben is 2 years old and we have a busy toddler social life at activities around Richmond, Melbourne. What a fabulous group of Mums and Bubs we get to see everyday for singing, dancing, climbing, sliding and always snacking… Ruben and I never leave the house without a full snack bag of healthy treats.
Ruben loves to cook almost as much as I do, if he is not in his play kitchen, most likely he is in mine, helping measure, pour, stir and lick the spoon of course. I never use any sugars in my foods, there is no need for it, especially when I can offer you easy recipes of yummy food that is sugar free. You will see that I sweeten my yummy treats with fruit, vegetables or stevia.
There are so many reasons why I am so focused on eating sugar free and bringing Ruben up this way, there is a lot of research to support sugar free as the optimal eating plan, but my main drive is very personal. Even many of my close friends reading this may be very surprised to know I have been an insulin dependant diabetic since I was 9 years old, I live a completely normal life because I’m careful in my food choices. I have grown up avoiding sugary foods, I know the fatigue, mood swings and health issues eating sugar can cause.
My Mum had to be innovative with her cooking creations to ensure I still had delicious foods that did not cause havoc on my sugar levels, I learnt a lot through her fun recipes.
In Australia it is difficult to purchase snack items that are healthy but with my easy recipes, anyone of you will find cooking super easy, economical and so satisfying that I’m sure it will be a preference to cook with me rather than buy kids treats at the shops.
Enjoy and let me know how you and your kids like my snacks, above are some photos of Ruben and I on our adventures.
