Hi I'm Beans.

I absolutely love cooking and baking with my children; Levi and Charlotte. 

Before becoming a mom, I studied to be a foundation phase teacher at Stellenbosch University and opened up a baking business. Now I am a full time mommy and healthy recipe developer. 

 

We absolutely love healthy, wholesome food and I would love to share some of my tips and tricks for getting your kids to eat all of the food that is truly nourishing and delicious. 

 

I am a big believer in balance and that what we put into our bodies is what we will get out. That is why I am sharing my healthy and wholesome recipes with you, as I would love for everyone to have their happiest and healthiest bodies yet. 

Here you will find the meals and treats that we love to cook, eat and share with our loved ones. Food that nourishes and impacts the way that we feel. Food that leaves you feeling happy, nurtured, satisfied and ready for life.

 

Most of my recipes are gluten and refined sugar free. I also try to use only small amounts of dairy and meat and add more vegetables to each dish. I have never eaten red meat, but my family do enjoy it, so I will be including those recipes too. 

 

I love getting my children involved in the kitchen as its special quality time together and they also learn so much about new flavors and textures, we even include maths in a fun way. I also find that if my kids helped to make the food, they are more inclined to eat it as they played a role in making it. Some days are too busy or time is short, sometimes it gets very messy, so try to include them when you have the time and patience and I’m sure you will all absolutely love the special time together.

 

Most of all, I want to show you how easy it is for you an your family to live a healthy and happy lifestyle and to cook nutritious food that is absolutely delicious!

It’s time to get your glow back and a spring in your step!

The past few days at Jan Harmsgat is exactly what we needed. The 5-star country estate delivers on every level of farm life, natural beauty and absolute relaxation.

The perfect setting for our sunset safari farm drive, exclusive wine tasting and topped off with a delicious dinner by Chef Josh at Just Amy.

Knorhoek Estate is a wonderful place where kids can play, explore and have fun while the adults can sit back and relax with a delicious glass of wine in hand. I’d recommend spending a night or two, take a leisurely stroll to the restaurant for breakfast and lunch, then spend the rest of the day exploring the farms hiking trail, bicycle routes, pools, picnics, tennis court, wine tasting and amazing wildlife.
