Food, fire & riots of fun for modern mums

Get your Mother-Loving Energy Back
Because being a mum makes you feel tired
all the time, and it’s time for that to change.
When exhaustion is kicking you in the butt, kick it
right back. (I’ll provide the pointy-toed heels.)
Look, I know you’re busy.
And when you’re not busy, your’re so burned out that even thinking about doing the dishes, makes you cry literal tears into your t-shirt. (By the way, this t-shirt likely has snot stains. No judgement.)
I know it’s a pain in the butt to take time for yourself
but no one is going to give it to you.
When I was pregnant 3 years ago, I bumped into a friend at the supermarket who gave me this passionate speech about how our purpose in life – as women – is to become mothers.
In my head I was thinking WT actual F
Becoming a mum is one of the coolest experiences of my entire life. But it’s not my whole life
There’s this myth that when we have tiny humans, they’ll slot seamlessly into our lives.
For me, when I became a mum, this whole self-care thing was a huge wake up call.
What I thought motherhood would be — and what it actually is — is totally different.
They don’t slot naturally into your life. They bulldoze their way in, and it’s easy to lose yourself in the rubble. You have to make a conscious decision to reclaim your life.
Just because your tiny human was born doesn’t mean you were born to only be a mum.
We’re going to have to talk about the nutrition aspect of it. (Of course there’s a physical piece to all of this. I’m a nutritionist, after all.)
But I swear on the nearest giant book that I won’t make you count your peas, weigh your chicken fillet, or drink your dinner. (Hint: None of that stuff actually works.)
Instead, these 5 days are about the tiny, sustainable additions to your day. These small increments make the main difference between feeling like yourself — and feeling like you want to crawl into a blanket cave until the year 2040
Because being knackered 24/7 is a fixable suck on your soul.
Who the heck am I and why do I know about this stuff?

And I’m here to remind you that you deserve the same love, care, and attention that you’re giving to your family.
The practical advice I needed after squishing out my tiny human didn’t exist. So I’ve carefully and intentionally created for us.
Using my 6 years of nutrition experience, I’m making sure that you’re never left staring glassy-eyed into an empty fridge.
You should never be left feeling frumpy, ashamed, or frustrated because you want to lose weight (or not lose weight), and setting aside some time for yourself.
Together, we’re going to find what works for you so you feel good — without adding anything else to your to-do list.
(And bonus: When you care for yourself, it’s so much easier to care for your tiny human.)
I’m academically qualified too. I have a diploma in Nutritional Therapy from the College of Naturopathic Medicine and am a member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapists.
Let’s remember what it means to be you.
