Goodness Smoothies

We're getting back into routine here with everyone back to school and work this week - which means more time for posts from me! Earlier this week I shared a green smoothie with my Instagram followers to great acclaim, so I thought I'd post the recipe here for you all to try. It is really simple - bananas and spinach, with a bit of date for sweetness - but I like it because it gets some greens into the Clean Little Tummies before they've even left the house in the morning, and the banana and date works wonders at making greens more fun for kids. Sipped with breakfast, it is a filling and nutritious start to the day.

Cheesy Savoury Loaf

I'm always on the hunt for new ideas for lunch boxes. As I've said before, I think the key to children not being fussy is constant exposure to different foods and flavours. Putting the same sandwich in lunch boxes day-in-day-out does not give them a wide taste variety, and they quickly become stuck in food ruts. This week, I've been working on different ways to fill the 'sandwich' section of their lunch boxes, and this week it is a savoury loaf!

Little Baked Eggs

The simplest of breakfasts or brunches, so I thought I would share with you my winning combinations for an easy mini pot eggs brunch. Quantities are approximate this time, just add as much as you like. You will need little ramekin style oven proof dishes. This makes a lovely family meal that you can all eat together, adjusting flavours to individual pots if you need to.

Warming Vegetable Bean Chilli Bowls

We are experiencing some seriously cold weather in this part of the world right now, so - every night- all we are craving is warm, wholesome dinners. After cold school runs, cold swimming lessons and cold football lessons, we just need some serious warmth in our Clean Little Tummies! To meet this need, we are cooking up a budget-friendly, meat-free vegetable chilli this week, which is full of wholesome vegetables, beans and warming flavours. Better still, this recipe makes a big batch, and being completely flexible (and meat-free) it can almost be served in different ways the whole week! 

Simple Baked Risotto

The thought of risotto conjures cosy images of a warm bowl of rice filled with yummy flavours...but also the pain of standing at the stove for at least half an hour stirring and adding ingredients! Not an ideal, child-friendly dinner option, especially if you have an 18-month old, like me, who hangs around your legs opening every drawer and cupboard possible in the kitchen... Unless of course you do a baked risotto. I know, who would have thought it? A creamy rice dish full of flavours you and your clean little tummies like, all in one dish, and thrown in the oven!
