cottage cheese ideas

As a self-induced crazily busy Mum to two young children, I am often in need of a satisfying, nutrient, energy giving, preferably cheap, and most importantly super quick and easy lunch.

New Year New You

  January 1st. The day we start the diet/stop smoking/join the gym/whatever. Or perhaps January 2nd, to give us a day to get over the hangover and polish off what’s left of the Christmas chocolates.

Advent, derived from the Latin word for ‘coming’, is the term given to the three weeks leading up to Christmas, or more specifically, the birth of Jesus. Many of you doing The Fit Mum Formula’s Bodyback programme are Mums; do you remember those final weeks? How could you forget, right?! Backache, heartburn, swollen ankles, Braxton […]

And they’d be right. However carbohydrates, like proteins, fats, vitamins and […]
