Here is our third and final instalment of our mini series with mummy food blogger Weaning the Nation. I hope you’ve enjoyed the recipes so far and this last yummy meal for you and your little ones to enjoy is certainly worth the wait.

No nuts for my granola!

It’s been an AGE since I posted a recipe. This year I haven’t had the chance, energy or desire to experiment much in the kitchen – pregnancy related aversions may be to blame perhaps?!

That might be news to some of you! I’m 26 weeks pregnant and my relationship with food has changed somewhat.

I do like to play around with my breakfast recipes and as you’ll see from my historic food posts, breakfasts tend to be my go to for when I do experiment. I  get bored of the same breakfast everyday and one isn’t always organised enough to have fresh fruit in the house!

My recent (and successful) experiment is my granola recipe! Shared for you here…

My health has not been at it’s optimum lately, so I want to try and increase my nutrition intake in my dinners where possible, so I’m starting with a veggie chilli…

A blog post for all you boys and girls!

No one wants a smoothie or juice recipe that is either complicated, time-consuming to prepare or painful on the purse (i.e. especially the raw/organic ingredients) – the novelty and commitment can wear off quickly…

I know this, speaking from experience, where I’ve slacked when the feeling of bother and expense becomes a burden…
