Grey English sky outside my kitchen window. Where are those beautiful rays of sunshine lighting up my windowsill gone??

To keep our spirits up we turn to juicing! February is our month of going back to healthy eating and juicing helps to get lots of vitamins in- in one go!

As the Polish saying goes: “In healthy body lives a healthy spirit” so today we are trying to make “red juice”. The ingredients are in the picture below PLUS 1/4 peeled lemon (only remembered lemon after everything turned into juice).

Apples and carrots added sweetness to the taste, so the little ones seemed to love it. I keep thinking that even if they only drink 5 little sips- it’s 5 little sips packed with vitamins and living enzymes!

How was your weekend?

A pretend birthday

There are some days that you just wish it was your birthday…at least 3 year old Jonah is having A LOT of those days. He started asking about his birthday in September and he was born in March! He is very patient, doesn’t get upset, but he just really wishes his birthday would come sooner. So on Friday he asked the usual morning question: “is it my birthday today?” and I replied “Nope, but in 35days it will be!!!”, to which his response was “Awww..is that soon?”. His expression was so full of hope that I quickly managed to save the moment by saying: “We have to wait a bit longer for your real birthday, but actually I just realised that today is your PRETEND BIRTHDAY!”

And we had the most exciting day!

We picked a recipe for healthy carrot cupcakes and got mixing…

I wanted to try this recipe for a while…if you’re looking for a healthy cupcake recipe this one is definitely worth a try. It uses brown rice syrup without any sugar and you can add any gluten-free flour you wish. We used organic wholemeal spelt flour (spelt does contain some gluten) that we got from our trip to a local windmill in the summer.

If it’s YOUR PRETEND BIRTHDAY today we hope you have a lots of fun!
