Organix

Shock horror! An Allergen Dad blog post about kid’s food – specifically those without certain allergens! It’s almost as if I’ve remembered what this blog was originally intended to do… We’ve been buying Organix products for years now. They’re pretty common place in most supermarkets – increasingly taking up a significant part of the colourful…

New Year

Happy New Year to you all! It’s here – the 2020s! It seems like only yesterday we entered this millennium. I remember that very fondly; drinking Champagne (possibly for the first time) on a hill overlooking the fireworks in Central London. This New Year’s was a little bit, um, different… At home, trying to learn…

PCOS Diet

As any of you who follow me on Facebook or Instagram will have seen (apologies), we’ve changed our diet yet again in the last few weeks. My wife has recovered well from her surgery a few weeks ago although the first two weeks were surprisingly tough. The prognosis seems to be that endometriosis was definitely…

Rare window

Short of being a bad pun on one of my favourite Hitchcock films, it’s simply just been rare to find a window to do any blogging recently. The last month has been relentless. Granted, not all of it bad – we had a holiday, camping in Normandy, France, of which there are definitely some experiences…
