My name is Heidi. Welcome to my corner of this world, ‘Apples Under My Bed’. You can read about why there are indeed apples under my bed here.
My blog is my diary, my space to document our days. When it first began, I wrote a lot about food, from weekend pancakes to long, lazy family lunches. My man and I travelled a lot, so I wrote about that too. And then we had a baby. On August 27th, 2015, our daughter was born and since then, this blog has become a place for me to share my feelings about my new role as a mother, as well as what is going on in our world, from cultivating a slow pace of life to the recipes that are bringing me joy.
I live outside of Melbourne, Australia and am a University-trained Dietitian and Nutritionist. I now specialise in preconception, prenatal and postnatal nutrition, helping women and families nourish themselves in a feel good way, respecting their unique needs and preferences. You can read more about my work via my website, where you can also get in contact to set up a skype appointment.
Over time, my food philosophy has evolved. The following posts articulate how I eat and, I hope, will encourage you to listen to your own body with respect, and make choices from a place of self-love.
Life is short, do it well. Buy yourself fresh berries and figs, bake your brother a chocolate cake, open the expensive bottle of wine and use the good dinner plates. Plant your feet in nature, dive into water, collect leaves. Make yourself slow roasted tomatoes and lentil soup on the weekends and eat it all week, with pasta or bread. If in doubt, make eggs.
And when you want pie, eat pie.
