Hi, I’m Jeanette,
I love making things, lots of things. A New Zealander (hence the British spelling), trained as an engineer, sewing and designing since I was 12 years old and now full time mum.
Now as a mother of four growing boys and a girl my life seems to revolve around food. I never thought of myself as a foodie but it seems to have grown on me. I enjoy a mental challenge, and that certainly came to me when I started changing the way I eat to the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan. Not that the plan is hard – I just wanted recipes that worked for my family and I. Being a do-it-yourself-er that’s exactly what I did – and now I can’t stop.
The ideas and things I want to try keep coming – hence the name. And the fact I’m getting a good collection of my own THM recipes now is the reason for starting this blog.
My other pursuits include faith, medieval reenactment (SCA), cake decorating, sewing and design.
