Simple Wholefoods Stir-Fry â€“ Ditch the supermarket marinades!
At the very beginning of my wholefoods journey I started to investigate the backs of packets of food. I started to think about what I was actually eating. So it wasnâ€™t the nutrition panel I was interested in anymore. Nope, it was the ingredients that had me more interested. And

I experimented with a new method of making bliss balls today and they came up a treat! My kids are far more likely to eat them if they arenâ€™t too â€˜nuttyâ€™. The smoother the consistency the better. So I ground the almonds first. Small thing but made a big difference.

Lisaâ€™s Basic Bircher Muesli
This came about as a complete experiment - but it worked! Watch the â€˜How-Toâ€™ here. Or just put all the ingredients below into a container and in the fridge overnight! Too easy. Not sure why I thought that Bircher was going to be too hard for me. Think itâ€™s because
