Sometimes when you wake up in the morning - with two under two - your morning goes so smoothly and you have the opertunity to eat cereal and toast and maybe even get a couple of sips of your tea whilst it's still lukewarm! Other days it is CRAZY and you need to have these breakfast muffins in your pantry for those mornings (perfect for eating with one hand or giving to your toddler so you can breastfeed).

I am a big fan of breast feeding - you may or may not have picked that up in some of my most recent posts. I think a lot about what I put into my body whilst breast feeding - because it is turning into the milk which I am then providing for my newborn. I've really been enjoying this breakfast smoothie lately as it is easy to drink, provides lots of energy and most importantly it is tasty!

With statements being thrown around like 'sugar is the new smoking' - I've been looking into sugar options like using natvia. Natvia is a healthy, natural alternative to artificial sweeteners and sugar. Created from the Stevia plantis a sweet leafed plant, part of the Chrysanthemum family.

I can't believe that we have had 'the little dude' in our lives for a month now. As you know, he arrived a surprising two weeks early - even after I'd been to the OB the day before and she'd told me that I would probably go overdue…like I did with Mr Moo. He is the perfect baby - eating, sleeping and pooing. He brings so much joy into our lives and even laughs during his sleep which is oh so cute.

I love thinking outside the square when it comes to dinner options. I really don't like to eat the same thing within a fortnight of each other… But I am partial to a great Mexican inspired meal (more then that). I came up with this great Mexican style 'fish and chips' the other night and it is most definitely toddler friendly (with or without the jalapeños - because our toddler eats them).

I actually made it out to one more cafe prior to The Dude's arrival. It's an old favourite of mine - with lots of good memories meeting uni friends here for a catch up over coffee and their awesome breakfast. If you're a fan of eating breakfast out (in an environment which is toddler friendly) then you should definitely stop by Black Pepper Cafe in Belconnen.

You know I love myself a little Mexican. The thing is some of the most delicious Mexican dishes involve some slow cooking which I just don't have the time for. So here is a 'cheat's sour cream enchilada' which requires minimal cooking and minimal time in the kitchen, but packs a punch in the flavour stakes!

Breast feeding Mummies need to start their day with a healthy and filling breakfast because you're making breakfast, lunch and dinner (and all those feeds inbetween for your newborn). You want something quick and easy, that you can normally eat in one hand - even if you don't have a toddler running around… So I came up with this delicious breakfast sandwich!

The lovely Emma from 'Em's Food for Friends' got in contact with me and said that she would like to guest post for me whilst I am having a brake (more like getting my head around) two little ones under two. So here is a little bit about Emma and her blog and a delicious recipe for Szechuan Pepper Steak with Hoi Sin Noodles and Cashews.
