Admission Time

So I decided it is time for me to admit something to you all, I have been so focused on my own eating and making sure I follow my rapid plan that I have been getting really slack with ensuring the two kiddies eat Real Food.  So this will be changing and I am now on the hunt for Family Friendly real food recipes I can start using for the kiddos breakfasts and lunches.  I find these two meals in particular we get slack and stuck in a routine of a piece of toast with Peanut Butter and a sandwhich for lunch.  Dinner is always easy to ensure they eat real because that is what I have, so add a few carbs and they are good to go.  So over the next few weeks you will be seeing some posts focused on real food and eliminating the nasties.


So far my favourite places to get Real Food recipes have of course been Pinterest and a few other fabulous blog and Facebook pages I have recently discovered which I will be sharing in a post very soon so stay tuned.

Rapid Reset

Hi Everyone,


Hope you are all well! We have been enjoying a few days with my hubby, who has been in Christchurch for 2 weeks, before he heads off for another few weeks again on Monday morning so things have been a bit all over the place this week.  Hope you are all enjoying your fathers day, I am just making the most of 10 minutes of peace and quiet while everyone is still asleep 😀

So a wee update on how my week has been going… I joined a online program called Rapid Reset which has been going great so far.  The goal of the program is to get your body into a state of Ketosis which basically means your fat burning is at its prime (excuse my very technical explanation).  This is achieved through eating real food and focusing on getting the right nutrients etc that your body needs.  It is split into 12 phases over 12 weeks to ensure you get the maximum result.  I am currently on day 6 of my first week and so far I have been really pleased with how its going.  I have had some yummy recipes one of which I want to share with you today and have felt really fresh and healthy. At the moment I am on day 2 of the 3 day detox, which just gets all the C.R.A.P (Caffeine, Refined Sugar, Alcohol, Processed food) out of your system so that your body will work as naturally as possible.  I will admit that I have found the detox a bit hard because it is a freshly made juice for breakfast, then a smoothie for lunch and then a salad and protein for dinner but man has my stomach been rumbling all day! But only one day to go and then I am back onto normal meals WOOHOO! Don’t forget you can follow me on Facebook your Instagram to see whats being eaten in our house 😀  You can check Rapid Reset out at if you are interested in joining.

I also have been working on my goals I set a few weeks ago and have started to make my inspiration board which I will share a bit more about in the next couple of days 😀

Weigh in day for me tomorrow… eek… hopefully I will have a great result to share with you all, otherwise its just back on the horse and carry on!

I will NOT QUIT this time!!!!!




Welcome to my blog Real Food Mummy 😀

This blog is hopefully a place where I will be able to share my successes and failures (although hopefully not too many of those) on my journey to eating Real Food. Why decide to start this you might wonder?? Well I am overweight and have been for a while and I feel like I have tried so many ways to loose the weight but never with any luck! So I went along and listened to a talk by Dr Libby, well she was completely inspiring and fascinating. She makes the point that our bodies are built to eat food in its most natural state as that way we take all the nutrients and goodness from it rather than digesting Preservatives and additives. She instructs everyone to raise the plant content in your menu and basically cut out the ‘crap’
(although she worded that much better than me haha), which in turn with a few other basic things will all lend towards a much healthier and hopefully smaller lifestyle.  Everything about her talk was inspiring and I highly recommend people to go and listen to her speak. So basically my goal is to get as many real food meals into my everyday eating as possible.  However this is made tricky with mu two little ratbags who I would also like to start eating the ‘real’ way and a very tight budget.

So bring it on food … because I am one motivated Real Food Mummy!
