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.
It is about choosing to prepare your family’s food from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. It is about choosing to use food as medicine, not only as fuel. It is about choosing to nourish your children’s growing bodies, not just to fill their tummies.
It is about having a plateful (or a handful) of nutrient-dense foods and a day full of soul foods (love, spirituality, movement and play).
It is about traditional foods (ferments and bone broths), traditional ways (barefoot in the soil and bare skin in the sunshine), traditional medicine (herbs, tinctures and essential oils) – all while living in the modern world with its stresses, busyness and two working parents (and its superfoods, blenders and dehydrators!)
It is about digestion and absorption, the immune system, the gut and the awesome bacteria we want to live there!
Mila’s Meals is about the little ones & their future.
It is about us as parents doing our very best to ensure optimal growth and vibrant health – and perhaps even healing ourselves in the process! (Our children will be our greatest teachers if we listen to them!)
It is about unlearning what the pharmaceutical, agricultural and food industry have led us to believe. It is about becoming a food detective. Its about creating new “normal”.
It is about delicious and nutritious whole foods and a delicious and nutritious whole life.
Mila’s Meals ambition, is to be a call to action for every parent.
For you to be conscious of what you are feeding your little ones, and to provide a guideline on how to go about this as effectively, effortlessly and joyfully as possible.
It is about seeing food intolerances as a blessing which will lead you down a path of learning, discovery and vibrant health.
But really, Mila’s Meals is a journal of my journey into motherhood.
I hope you’ll join me,
