Planning the Perfect Family Vacation

With my family’s annual family holiday to Europe coming up in less than 2 weeks, I thought now might be a wonderful time to write about how to plan the perfect vacation.

In the garden with a Happy Caterpillar

Gardening is a wonderfully messy way for children to engage in an enlightening and healthy pastime. It is also one of the most important skills a child can obtain, period. As a family, it is a bonding and rewarding experience which starts with the excitement of choosing the plants from seed, then learning how to nurture and manage the ground as plants grow, and ending with a harvest of homegrown goodness which all can sit down to enjoy as a meal together.

Ice-climbing; not for the faint hearted

Ice-Climbing having evolved out of rock climbing is not for the faint of heart, and surely ascending a vertical surface of slippery ice does exhilarate the soul. Ice-Climbing is an adrenalin-rushing extreme sport, demanding your whole attention, which is rapidly growing as a Winter activity.

Being part of an active family with my husband, has its perks; I am healthier, fitter and stronger than I have ever been in my life, and I love that! We have also bonded, on a new level as a couple seeing our love of exercise as a daily necessity.

Raw Juice and Smoothie Recipes just in time for Summer

In my family home, we love to juice fresh raw organic fruits, herbs and vegetables.

With summer finally here in the Northern Hemisphere, our juicer is officially out of the cupboard and back on the kitchen bench where it will stay, for now.

For the convenience of becoming a plant eater — Vegan Cuts

You know, if I look back to where I was with my food journey before I decided to follow a  vegan diet 8 months ago, it was a very different picture. I had been a vegetarian for 26 years, but once I started learning about the cruelty inflicted on our beautiful animals who are forced to provide milk for us, I quickly decided to give up dairy too. Just like that, I went cold turkey, and became a 100% plant eater, and I could not be happier about the decision.
