Takeaway, Don’t Go Away! Healthy Chinese Takeaways and Deliveries for Expecting Mums (and Kids Too!)

by

healthy chinese takeaway dishes

Today I have a lovely guest blog post from Zara Hampshire on healthy Chinese takeaway dishes, especially for all you expectant mums out there. I know exactly what it’s like to just feel completely knackered at the end of the day after going to work, or even just a day of running errands, the last thing you want to do is cook, so I often reached for the takeaway menu too. But enough about me, over to Zara who is going to let you know which Chinese takeaway dishes are the healthiest to have when your pregnant. 

Being pregnant is tough stuff!  Between queasy mornings, stressful days at work, and the unrelenting cruelty of stairs (oh my god—STAIRS!), it’s hard to think about doing anything else—that is until you get home and realise there’s still housework to do, a dog to walk, an ever growing shopping list on the fridge, and mouths to feed.  Normally, after a long day you’d just get a Chinese takeaway and relax with the family, but now you’re pregnant. “No!” they say, “You must slave away in the kitchen if you want the best for your baby!”  But it just isn’t true.  There are plenty of delicious, nutrient rich Chinese dishes that can be picked up or delivered right to your door.  Here are some of the best for you and your precious cargo.

5 Tips For DIY Nursery Decor

by

Nursery DecorOne of my favourite things to do when I was pregnant was plan and decorate Elian’s Nursery (thats a sneak peek of it on the right!). It still isn’t quite finished because we’re making a big change to the house at the moment so 1 half his room is currently storage, but once that is sorted I get to make the final changes then I can reveal his room properly to you all. He doesn’t really need a room of his own yet, so I’m not worried about getting it sorted asap! But as we had been in the house for over a year when we found out we were pregnant it meant most of it was already decorated and I was missing the fun home decor planning I had when we moved in, so it got to start all over again with nursery decor ideas! Most of our house is neutral (white walls, oak floors) with pops of colour to let the furniture and soft furnishings stand out more, but I decided his room could be a bit more bold and fun! But I’m not going to talk about it today, lol, you’ll have to wait for a proper reveal in a few weeks when its properly finished. 

So today I am handing the blog over to John Starr, a freelance writer, father, and DIY enthusiast living in Brighton. In addition to working on his latest project (be it work around the home or a new article), he enjoys spending time with his two children and today he is going to chat to you all about DIY nursery decor.
