As I have mentioned a few times now we are trying to recycle more, grow our own foods and of course make environmentally conscious switches to organic foods where possible. One of the things we use most of in this house is milk, the girls are constantly in the fridge and have countless bowls of cereal each day and sometimes even milkshakes and smoothies depending on the mood!
Arla is changing things up in a good way with 89 British free range farms where the cows graze at their leisure on 100% organically farmed land, no pesticides, no nasties! They rely on crop rotation which eliminates the use for chemical sprays.
Not only are Arla helping keep British farms active they are also focussed on keeping us fit and healthy too. Did you know a 200ml glass of Arla semi-skimmed milk provides…
Our daily use of Arla Organic Free Range Milk includes breakfast which is usually a bowl of cereal for the girls and a cup of tea for me, if the girls choose toast they tend to like a glass of milk with their breakfast.
Lately lunch has been based around eggs what with the chickens upping production to 3 a day! More often than not the girls request scrambled eggs, as the eggs are fresh from the chicken the colour is amazing and they taste delicious, I have always added a splash of milk (mum did it too so I have just followed suit!), a little salt and pepper and voila. A simple stress free and healthy lunch.
The girls love nothing more than having either warm milk or hot chocolate made with milk for their supper. I think this is still stemming from Christmas when we had nothing but hot chocolate in the run up to the big day and Amelia is now asking when he is next due!
I love a good snuggle on the sofa with a warm drink while watching a movie before bed. It really does calm the girls down after bath time and sets the mood right for the night.
