Be adventurous today and try a dragon for breakfast!
You’ve read about dragon’s in fairy tales but now you can eat one in the form of a dragon fruit. Similar taste to a kiwi, dragon fruits look amazing and distinct among the other fruit in the produce section.
Also known as pitaya, the edible parts of this fruit when eaten raw consists of mostly water and carbohydrates, with some protein and fat content. Pitayas contain slight amounts of calcium, phosphorus, iron and other nutrients.
You’ll find videos on YouTube on how to peel this wonderful fruit and more information at:
Thanks for reading and being adventurous!
Brilliant story with magnificent rhymes and colourful illustrations, The second of The Lemonman series, A Party, some rain and Wiggleworm Lane, teaches a wonderful lesson.
Weather is out of our control but how we react to it and enjoy it is something we can all learn to do. While the worms hope for more rainy days they plot and scheme their way to make their town more ideal for them… or so they think.
Follow the Lemonman as he is invited to a party of worms and later to their secret domain to learn what this book has in store.
I am eager to read it to my four year old to get his reaction to the whimsical and musical story of how the Lemonman made it rain.

The brilliant illustrations on cardboard paper of a wonderful story made this extra impressive.
My almost 4 year old’s eyes shone bright with the details of each page, almost like a photograph more than a drawing.
The story of a young girl waking up to a magical brown bear to go on an adventure every kid only dreams of. Meeting new toys brought to life with the words and colour, the story circles to Jessica’s grandfather who owned the brown bear when he was a child.
A recommended read for children and parents alike. Excellent for a Christmas traditional story time.

Coconuts are considered a fruit and they are filled with milk!
Shredded coconut is very versatile and can be used in cookies, macaroons and eaten by the handfuls. Stringy bits of white that can added goodness and flavour to almost any treat or meal.
I bet you wouldn’t be able to find one cookbook without the use of coconut in a recipe.
So get your family together and find a recipe you all love the taste of. Make it, enjoy it and share it with us.
