I don’t believe in having just one day allocated to the toughest position in the world. Motherhood. Raising little humans is one of great responsibility although extremely gratifying at the same time. Before I became a mom I really didn’t realize just how tough moms had it.

I am so excited to finally share The Eat.Drink.Pure30 Day Jumpstart with you all!
The premise is simple. Eat whole foods e.g. fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds. Take out the bad (processed junk) bring in the good (healing anti inflammatory foods, herbs and spices) and get moving at least 30 minutes a day. This can mean any physical activity. You can do yoga, running, walking, weight training etc. but do it you must, for 30 minutes every day. That’s it. 30 days of keeping to this lifestyle is bound to heal you of so many common issues.
How has your summer been? Busy? Mine sure has been. We kicked off the break by getting our spiritual high since Ramadan fell right at the start of summer this year. Then there was travel and spending time with family. We made a trip to Pakistan again this year. It was a lot of fun as always and it was tough for me to return home. I am always so sad to leave loved ones!
We are back home winding down summer and gearing up for the school year ahead! Whether you start the school year late August or early September, this post here is to help you pack lunch like an expert!
How prepared are you to send the kids off with healthy, nutritious lunch? If your answer is “NOT SO MUCH” don’t fret, I’ve got your back!
