Today “One yummy Mummy” turned a year old.. and what a year its been. My wee blog has really grown from this very day last year, and as a person I,ve grown with it. One Yummy Mummy was born out of friends and family asking for recipes and me being a bit lazy (not wanting to write them out, all the time) A handy place to keep them all together. I also wanted to crush the misconception, cooking from scratch was expensive, or that you need fancy ingredients or larder full of deluxe food to do it. Im an advocate of our local budget supermarket, I pay around €100 for a weekly shop, and a week in dinners in our house looks like this .
We still have our fussy days, and “yum” has just came out the other side of a yuk phase, Yep hiding veggies can work for
days weeks like that, and the fussier the she get,s the craftier I become. We have our treat days, like everyone else, when we,re out and about she may have a sneaky happy meal, everything in moderation. Im just an average every day mam, trying her best (and almost every mam I meet is doing the same) but why do we beat ourselves up along the way!!
Here,s an example…..
Whats your blog called people would ask? “One yummy mummy… i,d reply.. in a bit of a morto voice.. and thinking they would be thinking “yeah right who is she kidding” 😉 Then i,d mumble… YUMMY, as in food Yummy!!! Im not a yummy mummy.. sure look at me!!!!
fuck heck hell do we do that!!!!
This year I,ve been trying to work on that.. you know that way us
Irish women put our selves down/ cant take a complement…. em that !! and all tho we are trying our best.. as women, we are feeling we should be… at home, at work, thinner, richer, in control.. it,s impossible!!! Our kids are watching our relationship with food and ourselves.
“yum” children to enjoy food, healthy food, all food,, to have a happy body image, love, and to grow up, being able to feel good about her themselves . This all starts with us, (and I know it sounds hippy dippy, ) but loving ourselves.. and having a good relationship with food
I am ONE YUMMY MUMMY 🙂 (I really am, we all are)
( I want to say a huge thank you to each and everyone of you who has contacted me.. followed me and supported me, read my blogs and dare I say it,(helped me win an award ).. I am so excited about the coming year!! I have started writing my Cookbook and have loads in the pipe line.. )
