In the kitchen// Eggs on toast with kale

This simple combination is one of my all-time favourite meals. Why? First of all, it’s protein-based, which is always a good and healthy idea. Throw in the fact that these eggs are freshly picked from my dad’s farm and it’s easy to see why I love it. Reason number two is the quick and easy factor, so important in a busy mother’s life. And last but by no means least, there’s kale, one of the healthiest greens and foods in general!

Anytime we’re in line at the supermarket and I see a lollipop stand within kids’ reach, I see red. It annoys me, to say the least because no matter how hard we, as parents, try to spare our kids teeth from all sorts of artificial sweeteners that only wreak havoc, we are surrounded by unhealthy treat options all day, every day.
