I started today with a green smoothie of frozen banana, a beautiful ripe fig, a big handful of baby spinach leaves, filtered water and a smidge of raw honey. I followed that up with a walk and some time to write. Pete has taken the boys to play by the ocean. A perfect start to the day!
For those on school holidays I hope you've had a wonderful time, that everyone stayed well and sibling bickering, tears and tantrums were kept to a minimum. School resumes here on Monday. I am savouring the weekend days ahead. Autumn has been very kind to us with plenty of sunshine to enjoy park and beach plays, markets and long walks.
A holiday highlight for me was taking River to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, an excellent production not a flat or boring moment to be seen.
On with today's links:
Natural New Age mum has written yet another great post, this time a how-to on meal planning

Very excited to see Jude Blereau's latest book Wholefood Baking is close to being launched. Jude is running a competition on her facebook page where you can win a copy of her book. To enter you need to submit a favorite recipe that you would like Jude to re-write so that it is a healthier or allergy free version ie no wheat/dairy/gluten/refined sugar. You can find details here. Good luck!
Happy weekending xx
