Healthy Eating & Family Snacks During Lockdown

Greetings family!!!

Whenever school holidays roll around, one of the biggest worries I hear from parents is “they’re going to eat me out of house and home”!!!! For those who don’t get this statement immediately, parents are worried that now their children will be at home for a few weeks, they’ll be eating their way through all the food in the house.

At the time of writing and recording, we’ve just entered into the COVID 19 lockdown, where most children’s schools have been closed and many people are being asked to work from home.

As a home educating mum for the past 12yrs and a nutritionist for a similar time, in today’s video, i’ll be sharing how you can eating healthy snacks, plan your days and meals and make family eating and snacking workable during this time.

What Can I Do With Papaya Seeds?

Greetings lovelies!!!

Today we are paying homage to an absolute super food – Papaya, in particular papaya seeds!!!

Not only is this soft, pretty pink fruit packed with vitamin C and A, it’s also noted to be helpful for reducing diabetes, excess cholesterol and eases period pain. It’s been used as a meat tenderizer for years as it also contains papain, a digestive enzyme with helps break down protein, which can also help your body digest proteins too.

 

I love eating papaya on it’s own or adding it to a fruit salad topped with nut cream. I’m the only fan of it in my house, so I don’t get it that often, but I got asked a question when I posted a picture of it on my Facebook page asking: 

 

Leah, do you do anything with the papaya seeds?
