Fitchef Launches Their Kiddies Range

You’ve heard about Fitchef right? They are this powerhouse company that is all about the #EatClean lifestyle.

I recently had the pleasure of being a part of their newly launched Kids Range. All healthy. All good. All well within price range of what we should be paying to keep our kids healthy & satisfied.

How did the Fitchef Kiddies Range come about?

The Operations Manager of Fitchef, Shaun, recently became a father and with that, as all parents knows, comes the challenges of providing a decent judge-less meal for your little one while still being “that” parent that sits on the floor with them, because you know – we all have endless amounts of time.

The difficulty Shaun faced was finding the time to do everything and still provide his toddler with a healthy balanced meal and that is how Fitchef Kiddies Range came to mind. After stringent testing (I’m hoping lots of eating) and a gruelling “vetting” process; Shaun was more than happy to role out this to the public (the public being me).

How many meals are apart of the Fitchef Kiddies Range?

They have 4 delicious and nutritious meals for your kids. The portions are enough to feed any child from a picky 2 year old to a busy 8 year old. It’s all our old favourites!

1 x Kids Menu – Cautage Pie

1 x Kids Menu – Whole Wheat Penne Bolognese

1 x Kids Menu – Meatballs Mash & Gravy

1 x Kids Menu – Chicken Nuggets & Chips

Before I explain what myself and Zineah tested, just know that I was initially quite sceptical

I tasted all the food #gimbaforlife

I wasn’t quite sure why the food had to be fully defrosted before I could warm it in the microwave for Zineah to eat

All the instructions on the packaging were the same, which I felt was something they could’ve paid a bit more attention to but hey, at the end of the day I figured it out, so no harm no foul

 

What did we test?

Cautage Pie – I love cauliflower and shepherd’s pie but aside from using Cauliflower as rice, I have always been too scared to branch out but this meal changed my mind! I am not sure what they did but this tasted like someone put magic beans in the food and intoxicated me

Meatballs Mash & Gravy – One word. Deliciously Saucy! Ok, that was two words but can you blame me? I honestly expected the meatballs to be hard and dry and then the mash to be too runny, sort of opposite consistency but man oh man; I was pleasantly surprised when I wanted more only to see Zineah had finished it all

Chicken Nuggets & Chips – Oh man, I was so sceptical about this because frozen chips warmed in the microwave? Hot damn! They were delicious. The nuggets had a slight cheesy taste which I was NOT expecting but it was a welcome change to what we were used to

 

What did we love?

It was hard to decide but being a homebody, I loved the Cautage Pie and of course, in typical kid fashion because this is, after all, a kiddies range – Zineah loved the Chicken Nuggets and Chips.

Why, I personally love FitChef and their team

I love the Fitchef team because they know how to take of people. They only deliver the best customer service and they definitely have your best interest at heart. They are a bunch of dedicated individuals who want you to live the healthiest and most longterm life ever.

I love their range of products – which all go through stringent quality testing – all on their website and as someone who is moving towards cutting out meat products, I am beyond stoked that they have a vegan range, so accommodating and easy to #EatClean with Fitchef

 

It’s The Small Things

I am sick, just a bit of flu. I put it down to a lack of sleep, starting my period and then work stress. So when I cry, it seems like sinuses. Which is what I need now, no one to know that I am crying or want to cry or have been crying. I screamed in the car yesterday, my daughter found it hilarious – she joined in. I screamed from frustration, anger and because I needed to. I am shaking, uncontrollably, controllably. I am drowning. Noticing that it’s the small things that make me want to lose my fuckin mind because why the fuck not! I am struggling to breathe, not from the flu but because if I don’t I am scared that I will lose it in a fit of rage. I want to hit something. I keep on snapping. I want to shout. At you. I want to throw something. Break something. Because maybe then I will feel better. But I know I won’t. That is not going to help. I have been putting off going to my GP for the longest time. I do think. Mentality. I need help. Emotionally. I need comfort. Physically. I need to be fucked. Would that not be the easier way to just let every – fuckin – thing go. Just like that. One quick pomp and I will be better. Hopefully it’s that easy. I am sick. I am not ok. I am taking a small almost non existent break from social media. I don’t think you are the problem though. But I am about to break.

I will not sit down and I will not be humble

Queue Kendrick Lamar’s song………..not for me because I am sick and tired of being taken for a poephol

It dawned on me yesterday, as it had so many times before, that I am a really really nice person

I go out of my way for other people. To make them feel comfortable, welcome and wanted

What do I get? Oh, I was busy / things were hectic

Now, that’s not a problem. I understand #life but if you claim to be my friend should you not atleast check in with me like I do with you?

Even a quick, “hey, hope you’re ok”, once every 6 months will suffice

Something to show that I am on your radar

I have this belief that if I died suddenly, no one would miss me because alive I play such an insignificant role in your life, so why should my death be any different

Even at work, no one even notices when I am on leave and I am the resident work DJ

Is my existence so insignificant that it doesn’t warrant a quick 5 second check in

I often wonder if being nice is all its cracked up to be

Often feels like it’s a bunch of kak

Isn’t there something about good karma, what goes around cones around?

I would like to trade in my forthcoming good karma for money, lots of it

JarBar Review and Discount Code

I am not sure if you’ve heard of JarBar but if you haven’t, I have one question for you……..

Have you been living under a rock?

They are a health food company that prepare freshly made on the day meals and deliver to your home / office.

I was lucky enough to get a jar delivered to my offices which I was super keen to munch onto and at first I thought, “how would this jar be enough for a vraat like me *I’ve been known to finish a gatsby on my own*, but then I decanted the Argentinian salad and damn, I barely made it through it all!

If you’re looking for outstanding service, quality food and want to brag about getting food delivered in a fuckin jar then get to using my discount code for your first order!

With the purchase of of your first jar, you’d need to “buy” a jar deposit which costs R25 + your meal order, where my discount code comes in .

The discount code #SUPERBUSYMOM can be used on your first purchase and is valid until 31 March 2018.

I am not me when I am me

I don’t know what I mean by that but what prompted that odd title and this non sensical post is a picture

Taken by my child

Of me

Driving

Most possibly the worst looking picture of me ever

Like this, a realisation, is what I look like

Normally. To people. Outside

Not acceptable! I know I should be preaching #lovemybody blah blah blah but hot damn! I was shocked to see this picture. It was funny at first and then after looking at it again and again, all I thought was “ugh, is this REALLY what I look like?”

The answer was yes and I am not happy with the answer

Recently I have started what promises to be a 5 – 6 month long journey with a company called HerbalFix.

I

I am an introvert so naturally hesitated to meet the owner of said company but as my last brave act of 2017, we met up, she handed me the sample product with an additional 2 boxes as giveaway + a 30% discount for any of my followers. Not long after we met, I forgot what she said and had to ask for the instructional video which was a #GodSend

I started using HerbalFix and apart from a few bodily dysfunctions, I’ll tell you about the time I shat myself in another post, I felt lighter. Skeptical me didn’t believe the product would work but so far so good

Top pic was day 1 of HerbalFix. Bottom pic was after a week of using the product

If you’d like to win the 2 boxes of HerbalFix just follow my blog via email or however else you’re able to follow

If you already follow my blog, just comment and I’ll find you in my list of followers (you guys are jotted down somewhere)
