Don't be fooled by the appearance of these! Although they come in a capsule, the natural organic whole food goodness contained in them, is not a supplement. It is just that - Whole food fruit, vegetables and berries cold pressed 🍃
Forever grateful I found these and know I am flooding my body with the nutrients it needs everyday #jbt#jbttransformation#healthyyou#healthyeating#goodforyourskin#goodforyourgut#goodforyourhealth#eightaday#eightadaykeepsthedoctoraway#freshfood#wholefoods#bridgethegap

Dinner, all cooked on the bbq! Beer can chicken, hasslebacks and corn cobs. So simple. The chicken was coated in a spice rub (1 tbsp muscovado sugar, 1 tbsp sweet smoked paprika, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 2 tsp English mustard powder, 2 tsp thyme, 1.5 tsp celery salt, olive oil to bind) and then a half full beer can is inserted into the cavity of the chicken before standing on the bbq. A 2 kg chicken took about 75 minutes to cook (checked with a probe). This is speedy compared to oven baking, essential the chicken steams from the inside while it roasting, the result is the juiciest roast chicken! The bbq temp was kept at around 200c. The hasselbacks and corn were wrapped in foil. The potatoes cooked away from direct heat for about 40-45 minutes, the corn over the heat for 20-30 minutes. . #healthy #yum #quickandeasy #eatarainbow #fiveaday #eightaday #familyfood #familyeats #familyfoodtribe #mealideas #dinnerideas #balanceisbest #comfortfood #healthydinners #eatgoodfeelgood #summereats #mealideas #simplesuppers #onefamilyonemeal #whatifeedmykid #whatmykideats #barbecue #bbq #familyfavourite #mealideas #cookonceeattwice #beercanchicken #paulaandjackeatchicken #paulaandjackeatbbq

Chilli for an easy dins tonight. I made this yesterday as it is a perfect dish to be eaten the next day. It always tastes better right?! The boys had theirs with baked sweet potato, avocado and yoghurt. I got back from my hair appointment to this - chilli nachos and gem lettuce boats. Yummy! I usually batch cook chilli but only had one pack of mince and so it was last nights dins and a small portion left for the freezer only today. Sauté finely diced veg - 1 medium onions, 1.5 red / yellow peppers, 1 sticks celery, 2 carrots and 2 garlic cloves - crushed. When soft add 450-500g lean minced beef to brown, then add the spice mix. I’m guessing it was roughly 1-1.5tsp chilli powder, 1-1.5tsp ground cumin, 1-1.5tsp ground coriander, 1 tsp dried oregano (all to suit tastes), 1-2tsp cocoa powder (optional) and 2 bay leaves. Stir then add in 400g tin chopped tomato, 2 tablespoons tomato purée, pinch muscavado sugar and 250ml red wine (or beef stock), add some extra boiling water if needed to coat. Simmer for as long as you can. About 10 minutes from serving add in 400g tins kidney beans #paulaandjackeatchilli #homemade #mummyeats #quickandeasy #eatarainbow #fiveaday #eightaday #familyfood #familyeats #toddlerfood #toddlereats #familyfoodtribe #balanceisbest #whatmykideats #comfortfood #whatifeedmykid #kidsmeals #kidapproved #kidsdinner #healthydinners #nutritiouseats #eatgoodfeelgood #veggieloaded #hiddenveg #freezerstash #cookonceeattwice #chilliconcarne #batchcooking #paulaandjackeatbeef #paulaandjackeatquick

Saturday nights that look like this make me happy! The boys ate a speedy sups as son as we got home from a day out, then J and I shared this antipasti / canope platter once they were in bed 🙌. Neither of us were that hungry and and so a no cook fridge raid was a win win. Melon in Parma ham, crostini with chicken liver parfait and red onion chutney, crostini with salami and roasted red pepper, olives and some tomato, mozzarella and pesto. Yummy! #milkladder #quickandeasy #picnicplatter #picnic #sharingiscaring #sharingplatter #eatarainbow #fiveaday #eightaday #familyfood #familyeats #familyfoodtribe #balanceisbest #comfortfood #healthydinners #eatgoodfeelgood #summereats #mealideas #onefamilyonemeal #whatifeedmykid #whatmykideats #parfait #curedmeats #tapas #cmpa #deliplatter #deliboard #paulaandjackeatdeli #paulaandjackeatshare #paulaandjackeattreattray

Celebrating our little man and his last day at preschool with a “big boy night”. O was tucked up in bed so it was a film and a carpet picnic sharing platter, just the three of us 😍 Jack helped make up the spread and couldn’t wait to get stuck in. He really does love his food! It was no surprise to me that he tucked in to the cured meats and olives first. He also had his first tastes of baked camembert, dairy pesto pasta and uncooked mozzarella balls today. The rest of the platter was made up of sun dried toms, roasted peppers, salad leaves, cherry toms, crostini, black olive breadsticks, garlic ciabatta bread and a trail mix of oven roasted nuts, M&M’s, pretzels and jelly beans. So scrummy. Such a treat. The only thing I made here was the camembert and garlic bread but that doesn’t matter, what matters is that there was not a lot left on the tray once we’d all finished 🐷🐷🐷 Three Happy tums. For Jack we are still working on the cheese step of the milk ladder. He is fine with cooked cheese but raw cheese is proving harder to crack. He had a mozerella ball tonight as part of his milk ladder challenge 🤞🤞 Today he has also had a small yoghurt at school, some m&m’s and some baked camembert. This in itself is progress. #milkladder #quickandeasy #picnicplatter #picnic #sharingiscaring #sharingplatter #eatarainbow #fiveaday #eightaday #familyfood #familyeats #familyfoodtribe #balanceisbest #comfortfood #healthydinners #eatgoodfeelgood #summereats #mealideas #onefamilyonemeal #whatifeedmykid #whatmykideats #parfait #curedmeats #tapas #cmpa #deliplatter #deliboard #paulaandjackeatdeli #paulaandjackeatshare #paulaandjackeattreattray

..
Fourth of July was fly
No lie I had to slack
But I’m back like ya ex
That left you without excuse
So instead of 8 bars
Ima give you one-six
I hope they hit hard
Like your ex once did

Giving you free game
Hidden in poetry
Listening unknowingly
Cuz it’s sounding to plain
No flow and no beat
But yet undoubtedly
The best lyricist you kno
It’s been said and so it be

tonight’s family dins was a rehash of leftovers! Pie-angles made with leftover shredded lamb shoulder (in the freezer from a Sunday lunch a few weeks ago) and leftover feta (from Monday’s dins), served up with homemade tzatziki, steamed broccoli and shop bought Cous Cous. It’s all about balance right?! I mixed the diced up lamb and crumbled feta with shredded spinach and toasted pine nuts, then used a samosa fold (google for diagrams and videos!!) to make the filo pasties. So basically you take one sheet filo pastry, fold lengthways, open out and brush one half with melted butter then re-fold lengthways. Then fold again so that the side edge meets the top edge to start the triangle shape, and flip over to Create a triangular pocket. Fill with the lamb mix and then seal with more brushed butter and folds. I brushed the pie-angles with butter also and oven baked for about 20 minutes *To make the tzatziki - pop grated cucumber into a dish with a dash of olive oil, crushed garlic and a a squeeze of lemon juice / lemon zest. Mix with natural yogurt and a pinch of freshly chopped mint 👍 #homemade #healthy #yum #freezerstash #cookonceeattwice #leftovers #quickandeasy #eatarainbow #fiveaday #eightaday #familyfood #familyeats #familyfoodtribe #balanceisbest #comfortfood #healthydinners #dairyfree #soyafree #onefamilyonemeal #whatifeedmykid #whatmykideats #kidapproved #filopastry #familyfavourite #paulaandjackeatfreezerstash #paulaandjackeatbatchcooking #paulaandjackeatlamb

I’m never going under
I gotta be the winner
I gotta be the gunna
Because I’m not gonna
Be the one gunned down
And when the suns down
At the end of the day
I gotta be the one getting paid

If you have steak what cut do you prefer? Like most things meat, I always opt for a smaller amount of better quality. J on the other hand is the bigger the better! The boys and I had fillet, he had t-bone. Cooked on the BBQ, with corn cobs, mushroom, courgette and new potatoes. Perfect tea after a busy day in the garden! Oliver shared some of Jacks steak and corn, cut it up for them after I’d taken the pic 💙 I don’t very shy away from introducing the kids to the meals we eat and enjoy. To my mind, all food is kid food, and I feel lucky to be able to share meals like this with them sometimes. I can’t actually think of a good I wouldn’t serve them (other than over salty foods / honey for under 1’s. Of course!) #paulaandjackeatbbq #healthy #homemade #quickandeasy #eatarainbow #fiveaday #eightaday #familyfood #familyeats #familyfoodtribe #mealideas #dinnerideas #balanceisbest #comfortfood #healthydinners #eatgoodfeelgood #summereats #mealideas #simplesuppers #onefamilyonemeal #midweekmeals #hangersteak #whatifeedmykid #whatmykideats #barbecue #bbq #kidapproved #kiddinners #mealideas #allfoodiskidfood #paulaandjackeatbbq #paulaandjackeatsteak #paulaandjackeatblw

Get yourself right. Self-care before anything else and only the BEST treatment from @choppendaily
I was born a winner
Hustler I had to be
Perfection is my flaw
Losing’s not in my anatomy
Going up never down
Against the laws of gravity
I drip and ooze (oooooze)
Squeeze the pump juice outta me

Remember the spinach and cheese pancakes that both my boys refused yesterday ... I served them up again today on a shared snack plate, alongside some chopped fruit. All the colours 🚦. Will I have won them over? ↔️ Scroll to see what they ate ... all I’m going to say is what a difference a day makes. The moral of this story is try, try and try again. If it doesn’t work at one meal, try again another time, or try serving it a different Way. They both sat on a blanket on the floor in the lounge and tucked in happily with no complaints 🤷🏻‍♀️ Most kids will have times of being really disinterested / picky, and times when they are much more open to “new” foods. It’s just catching them in that window. For us they definitely have to be hungry, but not hangry or tired when emotions always seem to run high and if it’s looking set to be a hard sell out it on a sharing platter or move the meal time away from the dining table 🤷🏻‍♀️ #activekids #leftoversforlunch #healthykids #preschooleats #preschoollunchbox #schoollunch #schoollunchbox #healthykidseat #balanceisbest #fiveaday #familyfoodtribe #eightaday #eatarainbow #cookingfromscratch #eatthemtodefeatthem #dairyfreekids #kidfoodcollective #lunchboxlove #lunchboxideas #lunchboxtribe #whatmykideats #whatifeedmykid #picniclunch #homemade #blw #blwideas #blwlunches #paulaandjackeatveg #paulaandjackeatsnacks #paulaandjackeatfritters

Mastery is painstaking
Gut wrenching nerve wrecking
Takes a lot of practice
To do some self reflecting
Victim of my turmoil
It’s been war on my own soil
All my damage self-inflicted
And no one else but me can fix it

On Thursday morning I whipped up a quick batch of sweetcorn fritters while O was napping. The recipe for these is 1 large tin of corn (drained, and if cooking for baby mash them to break up the kernels which could be a choking hazard), mix with 2 eggs, 2tbsp flour (I used buckwheat), 2tbsp milk / milk alternative, 0.5tsp baking powder and a handful chopped fresh coriander. Mixed together and fried in little spoonfuls for 1-2 mins on either side or until cooked through. These served us well for meals over the next few days 😊 #activekids #leftoversforlunch #healthykids #preschooleats #preschoollunchbox #schoollunch #schoollunchbox #healthykidseat #balanceisbest #fiveaday #familyfoodtribe #eightaday #eatarainbow #cookingfromscratch #eatthemtodefeatthem #dairyfreekids #kidfoodcollective #lunchboxlove #lunchboxideas #lunchboxtribe #whatmykideats #whatifeedmykid #picniclunch #homemade #blw #blwideas #blwlunches #paulaandjackeatveg #paulaandjackeatsnacks #paulaandjackeatfritters

On Thursdays O generally eats on his own. Jack eats at childcare so we have a parent dins once the boys are in bed. I whipped up this curry using some chicken breast and half a can of coconut milk leftover from yesterday. I blended the coconut milk with 1 clove garlic, 1” piece grated ginger, a handful fresh coriander, a couple spring onions and a dash of fish sauce to make a sort of Thai green curry. I then poached some diced chicken, peppers and snap peas in the sauce until they were cooked and then served with steamed rice and broccoli. Winging it cooking at its finest! But baby really enjoyed it and I quite happily ate his leftovers 🙈 It was a really subtle intro to Thai curry flavours for the little guy. 3 portions for the freezer too! #eatarainbow #fiveaday #eightaday #familyfood #familyeats #familyfoodtribe #mealideas #dinnerideas #balanceisbest #comfortfood #healthydinners #organisedmum #mealideas #simplesuppers #onefamilyonemeal #whatifeedmykid #whatmykideats #batchcooking #familyfavourite #mealideas #cookonceeattwice #leftoversforlunch #freezerstash #paulaandjackeatblw #paulaandjackeatquick #paulaandjackeatchicken

I may cook most of our meals from scratch, but I have no qualms in sharing that we do freezer food and cans too. We possibly needed something a bit more veggie loaded after a day of birthday parties, party food and cake, but quite frankly I couldn’t be bothered and so a stop at the shop for fish fingers was a good call! I’d have been all over the oven chips / potato wafffles too if we didn’t have leftover pots from yesterday to use up. I hate food waste! I diced and shallow fried the pots to make them into little chips. Dinner on the table in under 20 minutes, and two very happy boys! Despite eating a huge amount of party food Jack polished off this entire plate. Oliver managed to eat 2 fish fingers, a tbsp beans and portion of potato not too dissimilar to Jacks plate after eating seconds and thirds!! J had a fishfinger sarnie for his tea once the boys were in bed and I excelled myself for my mum tea - peanut butter and Jam on toast with a side of minstrels 🙈 #solidaritea #needsmust #eatarainbow #fiveaday #eightaday #familyfood #familyeats #familyfoodtribe #mealideas #dinnerideas #balanceisbest #comfortfood #healthydinners #organisedmum #eatgoodfeelgood #summereats #mealideas #simplesuppers #onefamilyonemeal #whatifeedmykid #whatmykideats #batchcooking #familyfavourite #mealideas #cookonceeattwice #leftoversforlunch #freezerstash #paulaandjackeatquick #paulaandjackeatfish

Even managed to squeeze a 4th meal for the boys out of my roasted chicken this week. A speedy meal before we went out out! In true Paula styled, I baked these potatos ahead of time when I was already baking potatos for a another meal. Once cooked and cool, scoop the flesh from the skins, mash with fillings, re-fill the skins, top with cheese and pop back into the oven for about 20-25 minutes. I mashed these with chicken, cheese and broccoli 👌 happy boys! Jacks was made with dairy cheese, Oliver’s dairy free!! I live in hope that one day we won’t be having to make these little substitutes in our family meals or in individual portions 🤞 #eatarainbow #fiveaday #eightaday #familyfood #familyeats #familyfoodtribe #mealideas #dinnerideas #balanceisbest #comfortfood #healthydinners #organisedmum #eatgoodfeelgood #summereats #mealideas #simplesuppers #onefamilyonemeal #whatifeedmykid #whatmykideats #batchcooking #familyfavourite #mealideas #cookonceeattwice #leftoversforlunch #freezerstash #paulaandjackeatpotato #paulaandjackeatchicken #paulaandjackeatbatchcooking
