Blueberry + Raspberry Little Bites

We have been making these twice a week of late. All my little ones love to eat them, plus I don’t mind a cheeky one for afternoon tea either. It’s so handy to have bite size foods to grab straight from the fridge that are made from wholesome foods with no added nasties!

They are really simple to create and take 5minutes prep time and then 20minutes to bake.

The is perfect for your older bub or toddler for breakie, morning tea or an afternoon snack.

Here is the recipe! Tag me @aliceinhealthyland if you make them. It melts my heart seeing your little ones eat my recipes!

Ingredients 💁🏼‍♀️

1/2 cup blueberries

1 cup organic raw oats

1 banana

1 apple

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 chia egg (you can do egg if you prefer a non vegan option)

1 tsp yogurt of choice, we use coconut

1/4 cup milk of choice, we use almond

Handful of spinach leaves

Method 💁🏼‍♀️

1. Blitz all ingredients in blender. I use my @vitamix_aunz 💫.

2. Put mixture into mini muffin moulds and top with strawberries.

3. Place in a 180 degree preheated oven.

Bake for 15minutes to 20minutes or until cooked through. We have a fan forced oven.

4. Enjoy with your kiddies.

Notes

– You can double or triple the recipe and pop in freezer for meal prep.

– I store mine in my fridge in air tight jar or container.

I love making these for morning tea for myself too. I just add a little @180nutrition superfood vegan protein blend into mine.

Bread Pudding Christmas Cake

 

Bread Pudding Christmas Cake

This recipe was inspired by the taste of my Nanny Pat’s fruit cake and my Dad’s famous Bread Pudding. Both treats I enjoyed on special occasions like Christmas as a child.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Dates, soaked in ½ Cup Boiling Water
  • ¼ Cup Sultanas
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon or 1 Drop Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
  • ¼ Teaspoon of Mix Spice
  • ¼ Teaspoon of Nutmeg
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 2 Slices Rye Bread, crustless and soaked in ½ Cup Almond Milk (overnight)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil or Coconut Oil
  • 2 Chia Eggs (to make vegan) or 1 Organic Egg
  • 2/3 Cup Spelt Flour
  • Squeeze of ½ an Orange
  • 2/3 Cup Oats
  • ½ Cup Mixed Berries (I used Raspberries, Blueberries and Black Berries)
  • 1 Serve 180 Nutrition Coconut Superfood Blend (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1/3 Cup Mixed Raw Nuts

 

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Prepare a round cake tin (20cms round) and line if you pan is non-stick. I used coconut oil to line mine.
  3. In the high speed blender (I use the Vitamix) mix the soaked rye in the milk, flour, dates, in hot water, maple, essential oil or and spices, egg, vanilla, protein (if using) orange and oil.
  4. Pour mixture into a large mixing bowl. Fold through the nuts and remaining fruit.
  5. Spoon the batter into the baking tin. You will need to bake for 45minute. Turn heat down to 150 degrees and cook for another 20minutes. Check with a fork to see to make sure it is cooked the whole way through.
  6. Allow the cake to cool a little, then place on cooling rack. Once completely cooled place the cake in an airtight container and store in fridge. Consume within 7 days.
  7. Decorate on your favourite cake stand, top with extra fruit and serve with your favourite cold dessert. We love Pana Chocolate Ice Cream.

 

NOTE – You can mix in 2 nips of rum or brandy if you wish for a Christmas treat.

Papaya, also known as papaw, is a rich source of antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and special digestive enzymes. The powerhouse of these enzymes is the proteolytic enzyme papain.

The papaya enzyme papain plays a key role in digestive processes involving breaking down tough protein fibers.

Feeding your baby for the first time. By Gina Rose AKA @nutritionbyginarose

Boston & Winnie are just about to venture into the wonder world of food, where did the last 5 months go! Lucky for them they have Mother’s that are serious foodies.

Infant nutrition is crucial for supporting optimal growth and development. Think about this for one minute.. choosing foods for your infant can either prevent a disease or feed one. Now, that sounds serious, but we actually have the power to influence our children with fuel to set them up for a healthy life.

MAMMA Baby Care Electric Double Breast Pump Review.

mamma2.jpeg The gorgeous girls from MAMMA – SARA + ANNA

I connected with the gorgeous ladies Sara + Anna from Mamma Baby Care when I was pregnant with Winter Rose. The girls are Scandinavian Australian women who were good friends and became mummas around the same time. Sara and Anna are from the Northern Beaches of Sydney. After many walking dates and mummy catch ups the girls decided to create a double breast pump that was not only top of the range quality but affordable to the every day busy mumma.

I am extremely open about my breastfeeding journey. It hasn’t been everything I wanted it to be. At the beginning I had over engorged boobies which got quite painful. Then my supply went low when I started training. So I started pumping and taking lactation goodies from @milkandcookiesbyjewels to increase my supply. It worked a treat. After 3 months our little darling had only gained 500g. So I got some advice from an LC and a GP.? We gave it a little more time and I took some natural breastfeeding supplements like fenugreek and blessed thisile to increase the calories in my milk. Still Winter Rose only gained a little and was always hungry.

So we decided to give her formula one bottle a day. I give it to her either in the morning and try to give her EBM in the late arvo from a bottle. I love breastfeeding her to sleep in the evening.

So now I pump, breastfeed, sterilise bottles and formula feed. Haha! We got this though. My little girl is now thriving. She is so happy in between feeds. That’s what we want. Fed is best!

I love the Mamma Electric Double Breast Pump because it’s perfect for the everyday busy mumma. You can pop on the pumping bra, attach the pump and sit down why you express the milk quickly and efficiently. If you are wearing their pump bra you can do it hands free. So its perfect if you have work to do or a coffee to sip on. It has a timer on it so you know how long you been pumping for. I know I will love this function when I hear back to Work as I will know how long I can pump for on my break. The pump can be used as a single pump to, its super easy to switch between the double and the single function. The pump also has a 2-phase expressing feature. This feature gives you the option to switch between the massage mode (that stimulates and relaxes your breasts to start the milk flow) and suction mode that mimics your baby’s natural nursing rhythm. The pump has super soft silicone breast shields to ensure a comfortable pumping experience. The machine itself is so quiet too, so if you are pumping in the middle of the night your other half can still sleep or if you wish to pump in private say at work or at a event it’s very discrete.

The pump is cost effective. Only $249 for a quality electric double breast pump and the pumping bra. Seriously fantastic value for money, other electric double pumps on the market can cost up to $400-$500.

The Mamma Double Electric Breast Pump is defiantly a pump I would recommend to other mums. It has so many great qualities and I have only listed a few today. Stay tuned as in the next few weeks I will be interviewing the girls from Mamma Baby Care for my #behindthelabel segment too.  

The ladies at Mamma Baby Care believe in giving back to the community and proudly donate 5% of all their sales to Forever Projects, who actively helps saving lives of little ones in need. All donations from MAMMA will be used directly to purchase lifesaving formula for babies in need through the Forever Projects team.
