Picture of JanetHi, I’m Janet, a wife to Mike, mom to an 8 year old boy and a 4 year old girl.

I have my Honours in Psychology, a Diploma in Coaching, and I’m a qualified Chef. I also ran my own Paleo Food company successfully for 3 years.

I still struggle to get my son to eat things healthier than fish fingers, pizza and chicken nuggets… we’re getting there: At least the pizza is home made).

For years I’ve been juggling a full time job, raising a family, and maintaining a very old Victorian House on a tight budget, while still trying to keep healthy, there are a few challenges that I’ve learned to work around, that I’m pretty sure are universal, and totally manageable:

  • Setting up your kitchen with the right equipment.
  • Making meal prep quick, simple and effective (so it doesn’t take the entire weekend).
  • How to make meals awesome with very little effort.
  • How to save money without eating pasta or bread every night.


I want this to be a sociable, relevant space, and would LOVE for you to get in touch with me!  If you have anything that you would like us to cover, or you just want to share something awesome, get in touch with me on
