LITTLE NOURISH POTSπŸ’œ
Breakfast is kind of a 'thing' in our house. Perfected these little purple bowls of goodness... Blitzed in a teensy bit of roasted beetroot with the 'nana and coconut yoghurt. Mixed in some Chia seeds, quinoa and oats. Drizzle of maple syrup and a few "sprinkles." Miss 3 was in heaven πŸ’œ
BREAKFAST πŸ’š
Bit of a sleep in this morn, because (of all things πŸ™„) the cat woke me up twice last night #thirdchild 
Usually I'm just a coffee girl in the morning but whilst trying to sleep in, and not succeeding (due to the pitter-patter of baby elephant feet over head) I was dreaming of breakfast greens. Of course husband had already fed the girls so I only had to cook these beauties up for myself... don't think I got to eat it hot, though! Between refereeing the tea-party fight and toileting the small one - who refuses to wear a nappy - it was stone cold by the time I got to it. Then of course the vultures swooped in for their second breakfast. Luckily I'd poured chilli oil over EVERYTHING so the half chewed mouthfuls quickly ended up back on my plate #mumhack 🌢 🌢 🌢 😁 #mumlyfe
Straight out the jar πŸ’œ#coconutyogurt #thatfacetho

HOMEHACK...
Do you use nut milks at home? Have you ever read the ingredients on the back of the cartons? 😐 My girls LOVE their "milky" but the overwhelming snot and phlegm they come home with from daycare prompted me to cut down on the dairy! I now alternate between; cow, coconut and almond milk. They also don't get a whole cup/bottle of milk, I brew up a herbal tea, usually a chamomile or bedtime blend, 'topped-up' with milk. 
To buy a good quality nut milk is a good whack on the hip pocket and I loathe all the additives, cheap ingredients and/or thickeners added, so I make my own! This almond milk is super easy and has no nasties πŸ™…πŸ»
I used:
~1 cup organic blanched almonds.
~1L filtered water
~1 tbs organic rice malt syrup.
Add everything to a food processor and blitz for 2mins. Stand and soak for a few minutes then blitz again. Strain through a cheesecloth into a bowl and squeeze out all the liquid. Store in a jar in the fridge. With the leftover pulp; lay out on a baking tray and put it in the oven on 100* for an hour or until it has dried out. Use in your next batch of bliss balls ❀️
FISHY FISHY 🐟 
Her new favourite (and mine)! @thebaysmokehouse smoked fish rillettes dip on brown rice crackers. We've been gorging on this for the last 3 days. Hubby and I went though half a loaf of sourdough with this smeared on top for our Saturday 'Afternoonsies' SO GOOD!!! #wildandlocal
Anyway, this little one woke early this morning so early lunch of:
"Shishi" crackers, coco-strawberry yogurt, roasted fav-va bean and blueberries (she enthusiastically fed the olives to me 😏) Lets hope that full tummy helps her have a looooong nap 🀞🏻
HOMEGROWN 🌳
The first of our broccoli... I'm thinking; lightly steamed and tossed through a green salad πŸ’š
