What is Mila's Meals?

Introducing Mila’s Meals

 

On the surface, Mila’s Meals is a cookbook, website and a blog.

It is about food intolerances, how to cater to them and how to raise a child with them. Mila’s Meals is gluten-free, sugar-free, and dairy-free. (It is also organic, non-GMO and free from preservatives, artificial colourants, artificial flavourants and any other chemicals and toxins the food industry is passing off as food.)

At its heart, Mila’s Meals is a way of life.

 Introducing Mila & Mama

 

Catherine and Mila are a mother-daughter team on a mission to bring you the beginning and the basics about food intolerance and how to deal with it in a delicious and nutritious way.

Catherine Barnhoorn (aka Mama)

Mom, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach & Author

Having healed myself from various autoimmune conditions (post-pregnancy) through diet and organic living and having to raise a child with food intolerances, I set to work educating myself and getting creative in the kitchen.

As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I am deeply passionate about empowering parents to make informed decisions with regards to what they feed their children and themselves.

I see Mila’s (and my own) food intolerances as a blessing which have led us down a path of learning, discovery and good health – which will hopefully stand us in good stead for years to come.

Mila (aka Angel)

Muse

I am a free-from kid! That means I am free-from / don’t eat gluten, dairy and sugar.

Why? Because gluten makes the poopies get stuck, dairy makes my nose snotty and my ears hurt, and sugar – well sugar makes me feel sugary.

(Note from Mama: After Mila has eaten sugar, she holds her hand on her chest and says “Mama, I feel sugary!”)

I pretend to be a very fussy eater because it sends my mama into the kitchen to make really yummy food that none of the other kids at school get!
