Life and lemons.

This year, The Emerging Dietitian has somewhat been put on hold whilst I finished the final year of my dietetic degree. Well guess what? I have finally finished my degree! Ten years in the making and I’m finally here. I’m awaiting my final results next week and then I can officially call myself an Accredited…

Celebrating them.

A few weeks ago we celebrated Fathers’ Day with our immediate family. It was a seemingly low-key lunch at home, but there was a little extra TLC added in to show Alex and my Father-in-Law how much we appreciate and love them. So onto the menu. My in-laws provided the entree. They had been to…

Happenings in the Handrinos Household

I’ve found it so difficult to keep up to date with my Emerging Dietitian posts this year. It’s always at the forefront of my mind however moving house, traveling overseas and commencing full-time clinical placement has put my creativity on hold. For inspiration, I’ve turned to Heidi and her happenings posts. She was inspired by…

Emilia’s Farmers Market

Today is my first official day back at university (edit: I started this post last week). The final year of a total of 9 years spent here. I feel old just typing that sentence. It is also Emilia’s first full day at childcare. I’m in a world of emotions. Or for those of you whom…

A few staple recipes.

Over at The Emerging Dietitian HQ it has been a whirlwind of cooking, cleaning (seriously how much mess can a tiny human make?!?), working and preparing for the changes which are upon us in the coming weeks. I’ve fallen into a little bit of a routine with our meals. This isn’t a bad thing, simply…

The cake smash.

I started this post in December but with Christmas, New Year and Emilia’s birthday, it got put on hold. I’ve finally got around to telling you all about the cake smash. Let’s begin… I am still in denial about the fact that my baby is almost one. So much so that I’m in denial about…

Give yourself the best gift this Christmas…

It’s Christmas time. We spend so much time, energy and money on gifts for those whom we love the most during this festive season. I’ve been hearing it all over the radio the last few days; an estimated $52 billion in Australia will be spent on gifts. That’s crazy if you ask me. Think of…

Baby led weaning..

I have touched briefly on baby led weaning (BLW) before. I have had a few queries about it and what Emilia eats. So let’s talk about it here. Put very simply, Emilia eats what we eat. There’s no separate meal times for her. There’s no purees or supermarket bought baby food. Don’t get me wrong,…

It’s been a while…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog over at The Emerging Dietitian. You may have noticed my work over at FarmGate Online (if you haven’t, I highly suggest you head over and take a look). Between work, mum life, our first family holiday to Tasmania and a girls trip to Newcastle… it’s left me…

It has been a nutty week.

For those of you who follow me on social media, you will be aware that this past week Emilia and I were attending an inpatient sleep school. It was the toughest thing we have ever done. But Emilia is amazing. Alex is amazing. Together as a family, we’ve shown time and time again, that we…
