After having a break during school holidays, how can you get your lunchbox packing groove back? Here are 5 simple ways that you can start to make positive changes for your lunchboxes this year. Without adding unnecessary stress to the job of packing lunchboxes, we need to understand the importance of lunchbox food. The food you pack for your child has a direct bearing on their behaviour, focus, concentration and their health. Lunchbox food makes up about 30-40% of what your children eat Monday to Friday, so it is important. Are you ready to kick-start your healthy lunchboxes for 2019?

It's Apricot Day and we couldn't let the day pass without bringing up why at TWC we LOVE our sulphur-free dried apricots and why we avoid those bright orange varieties. When I started researching what goes into non-organic dried apricots, I knew it wasn’t going to be pretty. I knew they had sulphites, and that I don’t like sulphites. But wow, what a REVELATION! As you know – we are what we eat. We gotta know this stuff. Let’s talk dried apricots today. There’s a lot to say, and some very key takeaways, so jump onto our blog now & type 'Apricot' into the lower search bar to read on.

🍝Today we're celebrating because it's Spaghetti Day!🍝 Well... it's national spaghetti day in the US, but any excuse to eat spaghetti, right?! We stock two fabulous gluten-free & nutrient loaded spaghettis at TWC. Pop some of our quinoa & rice spaghetti or super grains spaghetti - made with organic rices, quinoa & amaranth - on to your next order and let the celebrations begin. This delicious bowl has been made with a homemade garden pesto (check out Ellen of @alycealexandracookbooks' awesome recipe on our recipe page) tossed with slow roasted baby tomatoes and artichoke hearts and topped with our homemade dairy-free parmesan (just nutritional yeast, cashews, sesame seeds, a little garlic powder and salt whizzed together!). What's your favourite sauce for spaghetti? . . . . . . . . #spaghettiday #glutenfreeaustralia #glutenfreemelbourne #glutenfreesydney #plantbased #wellness #fitspo #instafood #feedfeed #jerf #wholefood #wholefoods #homecooking #lifechangingfood #australianowned #australiangrown #australiancertifiedorganic #aussiesofinstagram #aussiemum #aussiemums #aussiekids

I realise this isn’t the most Insta-worthy photo, but I had to snap it when I saw the moment. Sophia (8) came home hungry, and wanted to eat. Like, now. So, without hesitation, she grabs the puffed quinoa, the raw honey, the almond milk and strawberries, makes herself some ‘cereal’ and sits on the deck enjoying the sun. We used to have things like corn flakes or raisin toast at the ready. But when we remove the stuff that doesn’t serve our bodies and replace it with better options and a bit of practice (and yes, ‘adjustment’), we can witness these kids of ours take their nutrition into their own hands and healthy becomes their new ‘normal’. So the rest of us are making catching up to where Sophia's at our New Years Resolution. More real food, quickly! What's your New Years Resolution for 2019?
