Pearl Barley Thrown Together Soup

Pearl Barley Thrown Together Soup

So it’s been three weeks since I gave birth to my son Theo and this is my first thrown together recipe. During the last trimester of my pregnancy I found it difficult to post regularly, whilst managing my three year old son (and my own brain fog) and in these early days I am still finding my feet and figuring out this new little person who has entered our lives. This recipe was thrown together, like many of my dinners, with whatever we had lying in the bottom of the fridge. It is tasty and full of goodness for young people, old people and breast feeding mamas like myself

I’m just shy of 39 weeks pregnant so have been struggling to get recipes up recently, but this was a simple and cheap little soup that I thought you might enjoy. It’s low fat and full of goodness for these cold, wintery days, made using the left over vegies in the fridge before shopping day. Hope you like it! x

Gluten Free Kale & Chickpea Brown Rice Pasta

Hope you enjoy it! xx

They are tasty, simple and delicious which is what I love!

Black Bean, Lentil and Mushroom Stew

Look, I made this when I was pregnant, exhausted and desperately unwell with Bronchitis. My husband had just returned from 5 days away, it was late, we were all tired and hungry so I literally threw all these ingredients in a large saucepan, crossed my fingers and prayed it didn’t suck.
