Sommerskos op die tafel met Marita van der Vyver

Om die tafel met Marita van der Vyver, is 'n droom onderhoud wat 'n werklikheid geword het vir my. Nie net is sy 'n ikoniese skrywer nie, maar sommer 'n bobaas kook ook. Somerkos in Provence is sowaar net 'n voorsmakie van die "creme de la creme" lewe van Marita van der Vyver in Frankryk. Ek het behoorlik gesmul toe ek deur haar Somerkos in Provence kosboek blaai en ek kon nie wag om elke resep te probeer nie.

Healthy Lifestyle with Nutritional solutions

Healthy Lifestyle with Nutritional solutions. To keep a "regime" going whilst pregnant is quite a hassle, constant cravings or horrendous nausea can hinder your appetite quite a bit. Not to mention postnatal dieting is nonexistent for a couple of months. Grabbing literally anything to fill the gap in between changing nappies and feeding...This can be seriously difficult to get back to your prepregnancy weight. Luckily I did a personalized DNA testing to help me choose the right foods to keep extra kilos at bay, thanks to registered Dietitian Donna van Zyl. Located in the Freestate, Bloemfontein.

Newbies in Frankryk

Newbies in Frankryk- Elke nuwe huwelik is vars en opwindend, maar neem jouself voor om die lewensfase te begin in 'n vreemde land waar jong getroudes selde gevind word. Jy voel soos 'n dryfende skip opsoek na land net om jouself te kan anker. Sommiges is meer voordelig as ander, maar dit is ook hoe jou lewensuitkyk op die nuwe avontuur is op die oueinde van die dag, wat gaan bepaal hoe jy elke dag gaan ervaar. Jou man is jou beste vriend en so te meer forseer omstandighede dat die band onbreekbaar word. Mia Sadie vertel vir ons biekie meer van haar ondervinding in Agen, Frankryk, as 'n newbie in die take van huisvrou wees.
