Making better choices

As a mum to three kids aged five and under, my life is the epitome of crazy/beautiful. Every day I strive to make the best choices for our family, but sometimes that is easier said than done.

Would I like to buy all organic fruit and vegetables? Absolutely. But if it isn’t available through our local organic co-op, then I need to be content with the choices available to me in our regional area. Choosing other fresh fruit and veg is still a better option than none at all. Life is relative, isn’t it?

So, what’s my point?

Well, honestly, as you get to know me, you will see there often might not be a point at all 😂 – I do tend to ramble!

But today I was thinking about lemon slice. One of my total addictions in my pre-coeliac days, complete with biscuits, condensed milk, etc. Can anyone say refined sugar, chemical s**t-storm?!

But luckily, for every recipe I used to love, there is a very clever person out there somewhere who has made a cleaner version. So now if I want a sweet treat, I don’t beat myself up, I try to make a better choice. (And for those of you wondering, this is my go to lemon slice option thanks to Wholefood Simply.)

We can’t always be perfect, but we can make better choices.
