7 Energy-Boosting Habits for Busy Moms

Motherhood is a full-time job.  I mean it.  Seriously.   It drains your energy–physically, mentally and emotionally.   Which is why I feel that every mom deserves to be well taken cared of.  Not by their husband, or their kids, or their mommy friends, but by themselves.  Yes, you mummy, need to take care of YOU first.   And when you take care of you, you will not only feel amazing, but you will have enough energy to survive the #dailyjuggle!

7 Ways to Stay Fit When Travelling With Kids

If there’s one thing I love to do apart from chasing my little boy and tinkering around my kitchen is to travel.  But I am sure you would agree how it can get challenging to stay on track with your healthy routine while travelling.  I am no party-pooper though and I still believe in enjoying the wanderlust moments and not having to snack purely on celery sticks during your entire tour. We recently went on our first snow trip experience as a family over at Falls Creek Victoria.   It was over 7-hours drive and we stayed there for 4 …

5 Steps to Making a Healthy & Delicious Vegetable Salad

One reason why I love salads so much is that they are so easy and quick to make (no pans to wash!), and they are nutrient-packed as well.  However, a common dilemma especially for those just beginning to make their own salads at home is that they get bored with having the same ingredients in their bowls.  I mean, lettuce-cucumber-tomato combo all week long is definitely not as appetizing to me either. I am here to tell you that salads don’t have to be bland, tasteless, and monotonous in terms of flavor.   Here are just some ways I spruce …
