Happy birthday, Princess H; I'm glad I got a second opinion.

About three months into my second pregnancy, I woke up to a beautiful day, I was getting my son and i ready for the day when I felt a sharp pain in my belly. I told myself it was just some discomfort that was going to pass quickly. Within an hour, the pain was so excrutiating that I was rushed to the hospital. On getting there, a series of tests were carried out, from what I gathered the results came back normal, there was nothing out of the ordinary.

How to make the best coconut oil at home

homemade coconut oil, diy coconut oil
Coconut oil is one oil that I always have at home, it is so versatile. Its many medicinal properties make it a highly sought after oil. Learning to make coconut oil myself has saved me some money and spared me the headache of wondering if the oil I have bought is pure or adultrated, and whether it is topgrade.

Diastasis recti! My experience

diastasis recti abdominis, diastasis recti effects, diastasis recti from pregnancy, mummy tummy, abdominal separation
When I had my third child, I was determined to get my belly back to its normal size, I had promised myself that I was going to get my body to the best shape possible. Once I was cleared to start exercising, I went right to it, no waste of time! A few months later, I had lost a significant amount of weight, from 75kg to 56kg. I was happy with the result, but was still concerned about my belly because it wasn't cooperating like the rest of my body, if anything it seemed worse. I looked five months pregnant, I didn't understand what was going on.

Mango Milkshake

I like it when fruits are in season because they are at their best. Mangoes are in season now, I'm so pleased because they are one of my favourite fruits. Good mangoes give me joy, lol.

My Nigerian peppered Beef

I love peppered meat! Preparing this delicacy is way easier than it appears. there is no one way of preparing it, sometimes I put together different peppers to get a combination of flavours, and sometimes I just use one type of pepper. Either way, it turns out nice.

7 Reasons to eat Avocado

Avocado pear was one fruit I didn't really like as a child, I used to wonder how people around me enjoyed it so much. For me, my relationship with it was that of tolerance, I ate it when I was forced to. But I have come to enjoy this power house of nutrients so much as an adult. Funny how our taste can change with age right? I don't pass up any opportunity to have this fruit. I eat it on its own, use it as spread on bread, eat it with rice, add it to smoothies and use it on my hair and skin.
