Real Food

Five words I dread to hear from any woman: “I am on a diet”. What they really mean to say is, “I am currently restricting my food intake so drastically that I am basically starving myself so I can squeeze into an impossible dress and make my old high school classmates jealous at our reunion next week. But once that night is over you may as well deep fry a herd of Buffalo because I will be so hungry I will eat anything not nailed to the floor”. Sound familiar? Now I have heard this phrase (the diet one,...

Cosmo Hippy Seed Crackers

These crackers are fantastic for lunch or as a snack. Have them with cheese or dip, or on their own. You can flavour them by adding whatever you like to the base recipe. I like fresh herbs (a combination of parsley, sage and oregano), lemon zest and salt. Makes a large sheet that you can cut into whichever size you like. Make them nut-free by only adding flaxseed meal, and not almond or LSA.

Size Does Matter…Or Does It?

Recently, I had my BFF stay with me for two glorious weeks. It was like a teenage slumber party the whole time. Cooking together, swapping clothes, shopping and making up dance routines. And as we’re modern girls, there was a bit of internet shopping too. It all started when I spied a 70% off Stella McCartney underwear sale. Having just moved out of maternity bras I was keen to get my sexy back but my body aint what it used to be, so I was curious as to what bra size I must be now. Armed with a tape...

Baby, You Gotta Trust – How to Trust Yourself

I’m at “that” age now. Everyone around me is having babies. And because I already have one, conversation always turns to the birth. “How was it?” A friend asks me. What do I say? Tell her the truth? That I made sounds I have never heard a human make before? So I smile and say, “It was fine”. She breaths and with a sigh of relief and teary eyed says, “Thank god because I am so scared!” But why? Having a baby is literally the most natural thing ever. We humans have been doing it for thousands of years....
