A fresh Start! 
 The Johnsons

Back in the spring of 2018 we were faced with a simply amazing opportunity and we are so pleased to finally be able to share everything with you all. 

As a busy family with three boys and our own business life is always a little manic and fitting everything in, especially food planning and organisation in general is hard. So, as you can imagine when we were asked if we would be interested in taking part in the new Tom Kerridge television series for BBC2 to be titled a fresh start, our ears pricked up! 

The premise of the show is to basically make a fresh start to our approach to food. All of the families involved had different reasons for wanting to take part, but ours was to take control in the kitchen, to bring back some enjoyment in cooking and not let time slip away so that we end up eating rubbish. We hoped that by doing this we would not only change our approach but change our lifestyle, get more active with the boys, improve our health in general and have a blast. 

The process was fabulous, it really made us focus. Before starting it, we obviously did cook, but it felt like a real chore, I would dread the thought process each day of, “what will I feed them!” I felt like a moody teenager dropping my shoulders in a sulk each time I “had” to do dinner and on busy nights it was even worse. 

I’m super proud to say that has really changed! I love my kitchen (although I am a realist and it needs a jolly good sort out after Christmas) and being planned and organised has made life so much easier. 

We aim to share our journey with you both here and on social media, with tips and tricks we have learnt, things we find really work, what doesn’t seem to work for us and how we found each stage of the process. I’m not an insta perfect mum, with a full face of make-up and prefect posts every day, I real and I hope that really comes across. 

We would love you to join us along the way, so please do like and share – I’m surely not the only mum in the world that found the kitchen a little overwhelming. 

Much Love B x
