NUTS FOR PEANUTS
Peanut butter can probably be found in most cupboards, these little power balls are simple and easy to make. You can add any nuts you have lying around, adding oats to bulk it up, dates and maple syrup for sweetness.
We are currently living in uncertain times. One thing that is for sure is that looking after ourselves is a high priority! We need to be mindful what we put in our bodies, while we are stuck indoors and the temptation to binge eat bags of crisps while binging Netflix series is super tempting!!
I am setting myself goals and one of those goals is to cook/bake more. Now that we are not going out to eat, or even out for a coffee, I make it my mission to not miss out and get into a drag of eating beans on toast every day.
How we manage with our toddler
Nza is a little fussy with eating, and a little slow. Her favourite foods often relate to her fine motor skills. Our little one loves picking up peas, chickpeas and any beans with her pincer grip. She is not a fan of sauces, especially tomato based sauces. Loves falafel and hummus but fruit is her favourite! 🙂
This is us on one of our exercise walks together:
What are you doing to keep active and not get stuck in a rut? I see so many people running. We opted for a brisk walk in combination with HIIT in the outdoors. Are you getting stuck into Marie Kondo-ing and freeing yourself from your belongings? This is another thing I am getting my teeth stuck into at the moment. Although the charity hops in London are now closed and therefor I need to keep things until I can safely donate them.
Lots of love and light from us and please stay at home, stay safe! X
