I’m Lara.

A wife, mum, and food activist who aims to inspire healthy living practices, blogs about helping other parents redefine parenthood.

On my blog you will find easy recipes that are simple so you and your family can create and eat delicious food at home, even if cooking isn’t your thing. You will also find some posts inspired by my kids Hana and Ayah and some of our activities out and about.

Everyone in a while you will see a review about a product or a restaurant that we’ve tried. YES, I do encourage all of you to cook at home and to identify the sources of your food, BUT THEN AGAIN, who am I kidding, people do dine out, you get invited, you go out with your friends or spouses for dinner, but you will notice that most reviews do not come from junk food or fast food restaurants.
Today, life is busy.

Between work, kids, managing the house, school, play dates, home works, and extracurricular activities, making a meal could be a hassle, and we end up relying on feeding our families more junk and food out of a box that we anticipate.
I am on a missing for a healthier life style, and this include some seriously planting, and prepping meals from farm to table,

I’m thrilled that we’ve connected, thanks for stopping by my blog. Don’t be a stranger and come back frequently.


Cook. Eat. Repeat.


Having children just puts the whole world into perspective.

Mario's Pizza: Simply Tastier

Review: International Iftar Buffet @ Kashmir & Al Argeeleh

Iftar at Kashmir and Al-Argeelah started off as disappointing, although I am generally a big fan of pre set menus and rarely go for buffets during the Holy Month of Ramadan but I made an exception as I wasn't the one making the reservations,…
