  1. I ‘Make it Merry’ everyday when I plan my food for the day and know that I’ll discover a new and yummy recipe from the Merry Maker Sisters newsletter. It always changes my plans but makes it new and exciting. One of my favourite recipes is the 5 Minute Paleo Chocolate Mousse. There are still so many I haven’t tried.

  2. whoop! first one (unless someone gets in whilst I’m typing haha!)
    Just ordered my copy – thank you – was looking out for your email since this morning 🙂

    I ‘make it merry’ everyday by remembering there’s a bigger picture than what I can see. To me life may look like the back of a tapestry – threads going here there and everywhere in a jumbled mess – but once it’s done and you turn it around it’s crafted a beautiful picture!

    That and being thankful every day for what I have. Amen!

    P.s. congrats on your first paperback girls, so excited for you!

  3. Mix with positive people.
    Enjoy great wholesome food.
    Relax and unwind and be kind to myself.
    Roasted sweet potatoes!!!
    You girls and the other wellness heroes out there blogging, podcasting and inspiring your tribes.

    Thanks girls. Looking forward to reading my Merry cookbook. Keep up the great work.

  4. Make it Merry – Well its Merry Everyday with bright, colorful foods that taste good and tempt me to cook, cook, cook! Love your ebooks and am looking forwarding to cooking up a storm when this one arrives in the mail.

  5. Hello girls. Just ordered my copy. So v proud of our clever cookie Canberrans. I make it merry everyday by smiling a lot, making good choices and allowing myself to be perfectly imperfect.
    Thank you for making wellness accessible for so many.

  6. Hi girls, you help me remember everyday to be thankful and joyful via your website. Sometimes when all is going wrong and I get onto facebook and you have posted a post that has me thinking twice about my so called misery, that you make me smile. I have followed you a long time and cannot wait for the book, happy dance. You help me to make merry everyday, don’t stop.

  7. So excited to get my Make it Merry cookbook! 🙂

    I “make it merry” by focusing not only on what can happen in a month or a year, but by focusing on the 24 hours ahead, and what i can do in that time to get closer to where i want to be.
    We may not be exactly where we want to be, but we can get one step closer every day, if we focus on the here and now. Recognising this and rewarding ourselves for small feats keeps the fire burning!

    Can’t wait to get Merry-ier with my new book x

  8. Hi

    I’m so excited to get the Merrymaker cookbook!

    I “make it merry” by focusing not only on what can happen in a month or a year, but by also focusing on what i can do in the 24 hours ahead of me, to help me get there.
    By acknowledging every feat along the way, i stay grounded and focused .. and of course Merry.

  23. SO excited about this cookbook. Back when I was just starting on the paleo and clean eating way of life I found you girls on facebook and I have followed you ever since!
    My journey of food has been a long one, learning all about what food does and how it interacts with our body has been interesting and at times confronting.
    I love to ‘make it merry’ every day by always keeping things fun. Making a new and delish meal doesn’t have to be difficult. Keeping my family healthy with what I feed them and having them enjoy every mouthful is what makes me happy.
    Keep up the good work, girls & thank you for your inspiration in my life! xx

  26. Just ordered the book! Can’t wait to get my copy. Love your recipes.
    I ‘make it merry’ everyday by starting with a walk or run in the fresh air, some yummy broth and planning my menu of delicious real foods for the day. Just eating real food makes me feel merry as I know and feel the positive affects it has on my health, my mind and my physique. Merrymaker sisters I’m grateful for your many recipes I’ve enjoyed via Facebook, pinterest etc. You girls rock!

  27. I make it merry every day by laughing with my girl! Can’t wait 2 get my book so we can laugh while cooking.

  31. Congratulations on your book girls! I am so happy for you, and so excited to cook some yummy healthy food! 🙂
    I make it merry everyday with my thoughts. Positive thoughts attract positivity to your life. You can literally create your whole life with your thoughts! How great is that? I have just recently found out HOW powerful my thoughts are and from now on.. the MERRIEST thoughts only! 🙂

  32. Congratulations! So excited to get my new Merry Maker Cookbook! I have them all & your totally delicious recipes grace our dinner table many times a week.

  33. I ‘make it merry’ everyday by doing something active that I enjoy, experimenting with new wholesome recipes at dinner time and spreading kindness to those around me. I also use perspective to overcome any worries and to live a life of gratitude.

  34. I make it merry every day by valuing my health enough to plan what I put into my body. I feel merry and ready to face the world when I am nourished with fresh, tasty wholefoods. I love using the merrymaker recipes because they are so simple and scrumptious. I am proud of my journey to paleo and won’t look back!

  35. I “Make It Merry” when I involve the merry little munchkins in helping prepare our good food and teach them about reducing grains and sugars. Lovin’ it! Feelin’ it! Merry made! x

    I ‘Make it Merry’ by simply keeping it real. It’s amazing how your whole perspective can change when you choose to eat real food and associate with real people. When you open yourself up to having real conversations about your passions and dreams and the things that truly matter in life. It may take some time to settle in, but that’s where the bliss is.


  39. I am pretty new to the Merry Making family, and what resonates with me is your message of “…to do what works for you and what makes you feel good…”

    I make it merry everyday by not judging myself or others on their own individual pursuit of being healthy and happy – life would be pretty boring if we were all the same!

    Looking forward to receiving your fantastic cookbook!

  70. Thank you Merrymaker Sisters! Because of you I am a different person. A happy and healthy person who jumps out of bed each day. I was in a rut both emotionally and physically. My health was taking a beating and my coeliac disease not manageable.
    I found you searching for a quick fix to feel healthier and happier. Not only did you introduce me to the Paleo lifestyle you have shown me how to find my bliss.
    In the time I have been following your posts learning about healthy eating, mindfulness, public speaking, networking, better sleep, organisation skills even Instagram! I have done a huge 180 on my life. I have started my own business which I have a passion for. I eat healthy and at a recent visit to my doctor she couldn’t believe how much my health had improved and asked what supplements I was taking. Nothing! Just a love of healthy food and recipes inspired by The Merrymaker sisters.
    You have made a positive difference to my life and are both truly inspirational people. Thank you for everything you have brought into my life and I wish you the best with your own future adventures. Follow your Bliss.

  71. Yay for the release of your hardcopy cookbook!! I’ve ordered three copies… I’m always talking with my sisters about the amazing recipes I’m using from the Merry Maker Sisters!

Himself and his subbies love the sweet treat that is guilt free!!
    I cannot wait to get my hands on the hardcopy and keep cooking away…

    Thanks girls!!!

  73. I make it merry every day by making sure I smile at everyone I meet. A simple smile can help others in so many ways. Loking forward to receiving the book. Thank you

  74. I make it merry every day because I choose to not let the craziness of life consume me. I choose to change the eating habits of my beautiful 12 year old daughter who suffers from mental health issues, I choose to cook everything from scratch and we do it together – something that helps her with her anxieties and depression. She feels free and relaxed when we cook, the bonding and gentle words and worries mumbled over cooking relieves her young precious soul. This book has been brought for her, a gift for new adventures in cooking together, taking steps towards more merry in her life!

  75. I make it merry everyday by being grateful for waking, spending time with son, eating food to fuel me and training hard 🙂

  76. Just downloaded your new book, wow! Found some great recipes to make already this weekend. A merry day will be making something new & introducing this to my 2 little boys. There is nothing but joy & excitment when they want to help in the kitchen & are learning all about food & the nutritional side of it! Congratulations to you both on such a wonderful book!

  77. I make it merry every day by stretching, smiling and living in the present. I know I am lucky and I am thankful for it and so I keep it real and don’t sweat the small stuff. I am so new to the paleo lifestyle and I feel so great and have so much energy I can’t believe the effect it has had on curbing my sugar cravings, lethargy and skin! I can’t say enough about it and I just want to learn more and more! I love your website and can’t wait for my book arrives!!

As well as looking forward to having a hard copy I bought this to thank you for all the fantastic tasty recipes I’ve made over the last year since I began my paleo journey. Favourites such as the stuffed mushies, pesto sauce, granola and of course several of the sweet treats ie the hazelnut cup!! How do I make it merry everyday? Well I start my by reading your great posts on FB each day, drool over the food pics, daydream about cooking up a storm (whilst at work) and by reminding myself how much better I feel since starting this journey. Thanks for making food fun!!

  80. thank you girls for bringing a little bit of something to look forward to every day 🙂 i guess i ‘make it merry’ everyday by being mindful, I try to be consciously grateful of every moment, we really have so much to be grateful for.

Make it Merry every day! xx

  84. Making it Merry

    The Merrymaker sisters I have to say
    Helped make an easy transition to the Paleo way

    I am always inspired by their Facebook posts
    Emma and Carla are true Paleo hosts

    With lots of tips and recipes galore
    broth,waffles,lollies and so much more

    Shopping and cooking is no longer a chore
    Healthier options are in abundance once more

    Their inspirational quotes help me each day
    They help my Paleo journey along the way

    So I “Make it Merry” as you can see
    Thanks to the Sisters who have been helping me.

  85. Congratulations Merrymakers! Like you two we “Make it Merry” every day by having the perfect partnership where we’re both on the same page in terms is what we want in life and business. It’s hard not to be merry when you’re in it with your best friend, right?!

    Every day is merry because I make sure ro enjoy the simple things. Smile, listen to your body and enjoy every day; what ever challenges it brings. By listening to your body you understand that on your down days you need to take more care and look after yourself. If it’s taking a time out and going for a walk, baking or reading a book with a cup of tea. By keeping it simple & eating well your body has the ability to make every day a merry one. ❤️

I belong to a tribal dance group and dancing together and the support of my tribal sisters is a truly merrymaking experience. Blessings to you both and thank you for you daily wisdom.

  98. I make it merry everyday by:
    Starting each day with a 5 minute meditation focusing on kindness, loving & strength
    Choosing a random ‘Happy Mama’ inspiration/affirmation card – & my daughter chooses one for her too
    Singing my ‘good morning’ song with my daughter
    Then during the day taking time to see the beauty in nature – whether it be autumnal leaves, smelling a flower or just appreciating a beautiful sunny day 🙂
    I ensure I do at least 1 silly thing that makes me laugh during the day
    And I finish the day with my daughter with our ‘I love you to the xxx & back’ ritual 😀

  99. You put this quote on your Instagram a little while ago and it stuck with me! ‘Look for something positive in each day, even if some days you have to look a little harder’ I guess this is how I Make it Merry every day! Finding that positive thing and sharing it with as many people as I can… And on those days it is a little harder… I have my amazing New cookbook and gorgeous recipes to share with my family and friends! So I guess in a nutshell every day is a very Merry day!

  100. Thankyou you have brightened my day, I have just ordered your cookbook! I enjoy experimenting with your marvelous recipes! Life can get a tad testing sometimes as I care for my husband who has a brain injury. In my small kitchen I have found solace by creating such awesome food so Thankyou for helping to make my days a little brighter, merry and fun. My husband is very experienced at licking the bowl!

  101. I make it merry daily but taking the time to be mindful and to be actively aware of the positives in my life in the here and the now, and if all else fails a generous serving of raw chocolate always makes me merry!!!

  122. I make it merry by living in the moment and by feeling the fear and doing it anyway! Leading bt example for my 2 beautiful girls. Xo

  123. Thank you both for this merry little book! So excited to receive my copy soon!
    I “make it merry” everyday by exercising in the morning, eating healthy nutritious food, meditating, making time for friends and family, studying hard to achieve my goals and reminding myself to enjoy everything the day has to throw at me!
    Another point to make my day merry, recently, as in this weekend, my sister decided that she is going to give up sugar and start eating paleo. I have directed her to your site! She keeps sending my pictures of all of her creations over the past few days! All from your recipes! From pancakes, to iced coffee and salted caramel smoothies! Love spreading the “merrymaker” life style!

  124. I make it Merry Everyday by looking at all the different recipes that I want to try.
    I’ve tried a few of your recipes but have so many more to try. I absolutely love your banana bread, I’ve made it so many times and tastes better and better each time I cook it. Can’t wait to get your book in the mail.

  125. Love, love love your work, girls! Just ordered your bundle cos I love holding books in my hands but like the e-book cos it won’t get splattered when I’m whipping up some of your fab recipes. I “make it merry” everyday by cooking real food for my family. Congrats on the new cookbook – I know it will be inspiring!! Now I’m off to check out the e-book……eeeek! so excited……

  126. Post
  127. My aim is to make the next generation merry starting with my Five kids;-) everyday I try to serve them nutritious paleo food without them necessarily realising it… Something that I’m sure your new cookbook is going to help me merrily along the way! Thank you;-)

  128. I ‘make it merry’ every day by looking out the window of my car on the way to work. Sounds weird and not cooking-related, but it makes me think of how lucky we are to be here in this beautiful country with good health, bought on by the good food that we put into our bodies. I also ‘make it merry’ by treating myself to the odd raw cacao cake – but try not to do that every day!
    My mum and sister will start ‘making it merry’ every day too when they get the other copies of your book that I ordered for them!!! Whoot!!!

  129. So excited about your new book! Another to add to my collection but hardcopy this time!!

  130. Hi Girls
    Just a quick one. I think I’ve entered (fingers crossed) as I ordered the book earlier on in the promo but second guessing that I’ve done what I needed to do, just starting Uni so it’s a huge step for me and I’m inundated with info. Don’t want to be missing out if at all possible. Oh and what about the meal plans etc. that you are offering did they come with subscription to your email listing? I already had a subscription and was just wondering if I’ve missed something. Got to make the most of “Merry Made” easy. Thanks heaps – PS: Bacon, Pumpkin Cauli Rice was awesome dinner side last night and equally fabulous for leftover lunch today. YUM, thanks. L

  131. My whole comment didn’t come out so this is attempt number two!

    Super excited about your new book, another to add to my collection but HARDCOPY this time! YAY!

    I ‘make it merry’ by starting each new day with a new positive mantra, planning & prepping healthy & nutritious meals but always adding in a few extra little goodies once receiving your newsletters, by feeding my body with nutritious superfoods and forever reading and learning more about the benefits of choosing to be healthy, by discovering a new found love for food that you thought had disappeared, by the new found confidence to use your recipes and even sometimes as a guide to create my own . You girls have encouraged me to ‘make it merry’ each and every day with your delicious goodies. So I thank you for that

  132. Just purchased your book. I have printed out so many of your recipes from the merrymakers newsletter and slowly making them so yummy. You 2 make me merry I love reading your posts and recipes. Good luck with the new cookbook.

  133. I’m SO looking forward to receiving my book and getting stuck into your recipes. We have a batch of your unsweetened pumpkin brownies in our fridge pretty much all the time cos my 6 and 8 year old boys bloody LOVE them. I make it merry by doing my best to be a better person every day, and accepting that I’m not perfect. Lots of yoga and mindful meditation helps with that bit!!

  134. I Make it Merry every day by remembering this quote: “You should sit in nature for 20 minutes a day. Unless you are busy. Then you should sit for an hour.”
    Love you girls xxx

  135. Your emails make my day. They’re always bright, cheery and positive. I’m so excited about your new book and can’t wait to receive. Like you I am a sweet tooth and love all your special treats, especially your brownie. Would love to be part of the prize winners. Best wishes.

  136. I Make it Merry everyday by remembering that the only time we have is NOW. Wasting time on the past or worrying about the future won’t let you live your life now. Be present in the moment and work towards creating your own bliss! Love all that you guys do, congrats on your book! xx

  137. I cherish every day by choosing wholesome foods, walking my best friend down by the river and surrounding myself with good vibes !!

  138. I make it Merry everyday, by making the best and yummiest choices for food for my family. We also love to dance, so we do! Everyday to beautiful loud music 🙂

  139. Just ordered my books! finally! Yay! I’ve been looking forward to this for freaking AGES!

    I ‘make it merry’ everyday by trying to find the positives in every situation. Sometimes it’s really hard to find your bliss or find ‘merryment’ during darker times. People or circumstances can test you or push negative energy your way. I always try to make it merry by cherishing my happiness and holding onto a positive attitude as best as I can.

    Love your work girls. So excited for you and this wonderful achievemnet! And can’t wait to get my book!!

  140. I ‘Make it Merry’ by smiling and being positive everyday, no matter what happens 🙂

  141. I “Make it Merry” everyday by waking early and being excited by what the day may bring. I get enjoyment from my work, my exercise, and my family, and my food. I just ordered my ebook and cannot wait to choose something for dinner! Cooking for friends and family is my favourite thing to do. Merrymaker recipes have helped to make sure the food is as wholesome as the love behind it. xx

  142. My “merry” is that I have surrounded myself with good, positive people that make me feel good about myself…. So everything else is paleo gravy!!

  143. I make it merry everyday by trying to consume the best quality produce I can and not stressing too much when ‘life’ happens and you can’t eat as well as usual. Relax, smile, socialise, eat well, train hard and your future will be bright.

  144. I ‘Make it Merry’ by empowering myself to try different things, experiment and most of all have fun doing it and seeing what I can achieve. So looking forward to receiving your new book. W ell done lovelies 🙂 🙂

    I make it merry by making sure to smile and laugh everyday! Reminding myself that nothing lasts forever makes me appreciate the good things when they are around and makes it easier to get through the bad.

    Thanks so much for all the time you’ve put into your recipes, blog and now your book! xxx

  149. I didn’t hesitate for one second to purchase your cookbook! I;m very excited to receive it! I was wanting to support you girls for all the hard work you offer for free but I don’t like ebooks. I make it merry everyday by not only the good food I put in my mouth but the kind of thoughts I choose to think!

  150. Congratulations on the new book, I cant not wait to receive me copy!
    First of all you girls have made my life merry!

    I Make it merry everyday by putting only good food into my body, surround myself with positive people and read a inspiring quote daily along with some free therapy.. exercise! great for the mind body and soul.

    Thanks again, keep up the great newsletters and Instagram post xxx

  151. I cannot wait for my Merrymaker Cookbook.. woohoo!!
    I ‘Make it Merry’ everyday by simply being Merry! All it takes is a simple kind gesture towards others to pay the merriness forward. A smile, a compliment or going a tiny bit beyond will hopefully spread to merriness all over! 🙂

  152. I “Make it Merry” by being grateful for my abundant life, and energised from the wonderful tasty and nutritious food that your recipes create.

  153. The Merrymaker website was the first Paleo site I ever found. It was recommended to me by a sales assistant in a nut store. Since then I have made it merry by following as many recipes as I can and losing 15.5 kilos in the process (in 14.5 weeks). The MerryMaker cookbooks have all been great so far and I expect that this one will top them all. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.

  154. I’m looking forward to using the cookbook to help everyday be a merry day. Your recipes to date have been great. Thank you for helping me look after my body and make it merry

  159. My day becomes merry when my 5yo daughter happily gets involved in making healthy choices for herself and our family – maybe one day i won’t have to hide the vegies

  160. i “Make It Merry’ everyday by playing outside in the sunshine with my two boys and dog… shoes and sun on my face….fresh air!

  161. Making my day Merry everyday by…

Keep on merrymaking girls!

  164. I’m super excited for this cookbook! I have the others and love them but nothing compares to flicking through an actual book!

  166. Can’t wait to get a copy of the new book. I make it merry each day by appreciating all that I have. I am sincerely blessed x

  167. Post
  168. I make it merry everyday by reminding myself how blessed I am. There is always someone fighting a battle, kindness matters xx

  169. I love enjoying Merry food every day for myself and my family. We have been Merry for over 12mths now and our family are happier and healthier because of it. Can’t wait to receive my book!

  170. I make it merry every day by being myself and not a sheep (a follower), and teaching my boys
    that “you are what you eat”.

  171. You girls make it Merry everyday and your blogs and photos encourage us all to do the same. I love your recipes although I did have a fail with the Choc Hazelnut Salted Caramel Pie….. I bought the ebook before you had changed the salt content!!!

  172. I ‘make it merry’ by trying new foods. Taking on a new way of eating, keeping it simple and enjoying unprocessed foods!

  173. So people are mocking me because I ordered the cookbook bundle – hardcopy and ebook – surely one is enough they say… nope! I’m impatient so the ebook has meant I’ve been able to start cooking straight away and I’m loving the recipes I’ve tried so far. And let’s face it, books are way better than technology so I’ll be cooking far more lovingly once I have the book in my hot little hands 🙂 (And as a bonus, my very fussy, but very food sensitive 11 year old has already tagged a heap of recipes she wants to make!)

    As for making it merry every day, I could list all the things I do to make my (and my 2 daughters) lives merry, but it all boils down to this… opening our eyes and hearts to the joy that is in every day – it’s there if only we take the time to look and appreciate. And often, it’s the little things that bring the biggest smiles to our faces – the shapes of the clouds, a flower blossoming, laughter, sharing a meal together, family snuggles, spending time in nature, or being creative…

  174. Ordered the book a few days ago and simply cannot wait! I’ve been following the girls for ages. All their recipes and ideas are awesome!! Can’t wait!!!!

  175. So excited for your book and the goodies you have in store for us.

    I try to Make it merry every day by taking time to refocus on the things I am grateful for. This is especially useful in times of stress so I can refocus my attention not on the negatives but on the positives.

  176. Hi Girls!

    Just ordered the new cookbook – can’t wait for it to arrive! Since giving up Wheat/Grains and going paleo I am feeling great and making merry everyday 🙂

  177. Very excited for my new book to arrive! With a toddler and a baby my merriest moments are cooking my family healthy, delicious food and watching them enjoy it. When I’m too tired and sleep-deprived for things like vacuuming and laundry, I cook. I always have enough energy to prepare beautiful food. It makes my heart happy. (So don’t mind the dust bunnies in the corners!)

  178. I make it merry every day by making sure I live my life from a place of self love and this includes nourishing my body with food it loves!

  179. I “Make it Merry” everyday by:
    * Morning exercise = me time
    * An amazing healthy breakfast – usually inspired by you lovely ladies or another amazing Insta inspo
    * A home prepped healthy lunch and snacks
    * Family dinner to ensure time with hubby & kids
    * Daily mindfulness – inspired by Mindful in May – there is so much to see and do in Canberra, even in Winter!!
    * Weekend catchups with like-minded friends (a run/bike ride and healthy brekky works every time)
    I am still making mistakes and learning everyday, but every step I am feeling happier and healthier 🙂
    Congrats on your new book, I can’t wait to get cooking!

  180. I ‘make it merry’ everyday by working towards my dream of becoming a personal trainer to help people become the best versions of themselves!

  181. Merryness is made here everyday through finding enjoyment in all the little things…what’s growing in the garden, what can we make, and finding books like yours! xoxo

  182. Woohoo can’t wait for my new cookbook to arrive! Excited! I make it merry everyday by having fun. Fun with my hubby, puppy, friends, job and most deliciously – food! I never knew food could be so amazing until we changed the way we shopped and cooked! Now each meal is delicious and merry!!

  183. I love the feeling of waking up in the morning feeling refreshed and ready to go – I used to always get to the evening and feel unmotivated, bloated and tired….

    I realised that I needed to change the way I eat, exercise and get motivated to ensure I am happy and keep positive

    So I now ‘Make it Merry’ by:
    • exercising in the morning – even if I drag myself out of bed it always makes me feel more positive
    • eating clean and healthy meals – with the occasional treat – this has made me feel less bloated and I have so much more energy
    • having a quote of the day – know this sounds silly but having a daily mantra really helps me stay focused and be merrier
    • lastly surrounding myself with positive people – we all help motivate each other

    Love your cookbook and have already planned to cook something for my friends

  184. I make it merry by finding daily inspiration and practicing gratitude! I love visiting uplifting websites and blogs, getting new inspiration for healthy and nourishing recipes and activities!

  185. Just ordered, I’m very excited to get my hard copy in the mail! I make it merry every day by trying to live in the moment 🙂

  186. I love that we have inspired so many people to eat clean and healthy since my daughter and I started our Instagram page. We have so many friends and family tell us that we have inspired them to change their ways and attitudes toward food and have started to stay away from processed and eat more fresh, clean and healthy. That makes me feel very Merry! 🙂

  187. I make it merry every day by learning and taking new steps for my health and happiness!
    so excited for this recipe book! keep them coming!

  188. Just ordered a hard copy of your book, I make it Merry every day looking after myself with great recipes like yours and Yoga/meditation xo Good luck with the book girls!

  189. I make it merry everyday
    By being grateful in every way
    It’s all about the attitude you bring
    To every big and little thing
    By focusing on the GOOD instead of the bad
    I hardy ever get sad or mad!
    The positive energy you put into the world
    Always comes back a hundred fold 🙂

    A HUGE congratulations on the book ladies, I can’t wait to receive my copy!! Love you guys stacks xoxoxo

  192. I Make It Merry everyday by practicing daily self-care, loving the work I do, getting in some great exercise and nutrition (with the occasional paleo caramel slice), and being motivated to live in the moment!

  193. I make it merry every day by looking for the positive in every situation, being grateful for everything I do have, keeping my body nourished with divine Merry Maker Sister recipes, and sharing the merriness with those around me!

  194. I’m just dipping my toe in the paleo pool to see if I like the temperature. Your beautiful book entices me to try a ‘merrier’ way of living.

  195. I love supporting local business so I am super happy to have purchased your book, I can’t wait to receive it in the mail.
    Using mindfullness helps me to make it merry everyday! I start my day with a cuppa and 10 min’s of time to think about what’s ahead that day, consider the great things in my life and how fortunate I am. A positive beginning to the day means I am making it merry all day everyday 🙂
    Thank you xox

  196. I need to make a change, so that I CAN make it Merry every day :0)
    Coeliac disease runs in my family, and there’s no denying the bloat or the throat tickle, the cough that results from eating the gluten, dairy or other nasties when you ingest.
    Gotta get on the right track – so I’m putting some faith in you both – as the vibe is welcoming and the message simple!

  197. Merry Maker Sisters I can’t wait to shake up my recipes by adding a little more merry to every meal every day. Adding a bit more goodness into every meal will make me more positive, healthy and happy! Thanks girls!

  198. I am looking forward to receiving my copy! I haven’t been so merry lately: overweight, auto-immune arthritis plus now osteoarthritis

  199. I Make It Merry everyday by getting up early, expressing gratitude, moving my body, breathing mindfully, smiling, and of course cooking with love using ingredients from loving sources, playing music whilst doing so and sharing these moments with the people I love. Cant get much more merry than that!

  200. Committing to a life of health and happiness. It’s not just about one day, one week or one year but it’s about everyday making that choice to eat well, knowing where your food has come from, supporting local producers and eating for a whole life of health and nutrition. As well as being active, appreciating the outdoors and enjoying those special moments with friends, family and our adorable pets. Now that’s what i consider ‘making it merry’ every day 🙂

  201. Well I am on my way to a new lifestyle with the help of your new book! Thanks ladies can hardly wait till it arrives. You gals have got it going on, on all levels health & happiness go hand in hand….. Cheerio x

  202. Awesome couple of gals with awesome recipes and blog posts
    Keep it up ladies – you inspire us 🙂

  203. I can’t wait to get my book girls! Well done to you both! I make it merry by realising life is too short & you need to enjoy all the little things while you can! X

  204. Awesome….you girls are awesome. So inspiring…….I purchased the bundle – ebook for me and hardcopy for my daughter who at the beginning of her independent food journey (yep she moved out!). Here is to good health, good attitude and long blissful life. Thankyou.

  205. How I ‘Make it Merry’ every single day:
    Hug my kids and husband
    Tell them I love them
    Feed their souls with real food.

  206. Post
  207. Can’t wait to get my ‘Merry’ on when the book arrives 🙂 I’m one of those ppl who still like to have a hard copy. There’s something about holding a book in my hand and turning the pages that I just can’t give up. It also makes it real for me when I can see it sitting there. It’s like it’s begging me to use it LOL. I currently get my ‘Merry’ on by walking to and from the train to work every day and cooking from scratch as much as possible. I hope that my kids grow up noticing the effort and love that I put into providing them wholesome, real meals, and go on to replicate that in their own lives.

  208. I begin each day in the ‘Merriest’ of ways by getting up for an early gym class, beach walk or yoga session with Healthy Happy Shine, followed by a delicious nourishing breakfast enjoyed leisurely while reading the paper or some inspiring reading. A meditation session finishes off my morning ritual. My mornings are my ‘me’ time and nourish my body, my mind and my soul. It sets me up for a positive and productive day and I know that no matter what the day holds there will always be some ‘Merriment’.
    Looking forward to making this book a part of my mornings!

  209. I make it merry by eating as many healthy meals as possible. I found out that I may be allergic to wheat so for the first time in my life I started to change my pantry and instead of flour now I have almond meal, coconut meal, quinoa etc. I try to change my diet every day and hopefully in a few months my food will be much healthier. And love it you published hard copy as I am not a fan of ebooks. Hope there will be many more books from you.

  210. Congrats on the cookbook! I love the way my family and I feel when we eat the ‘good the food’, you feel good, kids behave…. Kids behaving is enough in my eyes

  211. I “make it merry” on a daily basis, by taking time out for me each day (away from the 4 kids 🙂 ) to exercise. This often happens at 5.15am before work each day, but I also enjoy heading to the gym at night a couple of times per week.

    I’m also VERY “merry” when I find new treat recipes on your website that are awesome tasting! My husband says that I’m obsessed! What makes me even merrier, is teaching my kids about leading a healthy lifestyle, and seeing the positive impacts that this is having 🙂

  212. I am “merry” every time I see my children enjoy a healthy “merry” recipe.
    I am super “merry” now I understand my children’s food intolerances and how important a healthy food lifestyle is for their well being. Thank you for the positive impact you have made on our lives!

  213. Make It Merry each day, when your feet land on the floor, smile and continue to smile – it comes back 10 fold! 🙂

  214. How I make it merry one day at a time-
    By nourishing my body with happy healthy food
    And counting my blessings is a sure way to improve my mood
    By dancing in the moonlight to the song in my heart
    And immersing myself in a Merry Makers Sisters salted caramel tart!
    By feeding my soul through the rays of the sun
    While making my day’s merry with a whole lot of fun
    By surrounding myself with the blessings abound
    And stilling my mind is pure bliss I’ve found
    While enjoying paleo, yoga, meditation and mindfulness
    I’m relishing in the new found freedom of my inner happiness.
    I met you guys during a webinar via Jules Galloway (Shiny Healthy Me) project and fell in love with your enthusiasm, recipes and zest for life and I’ve always had a passion for the colour pink… BTW while looking at the prizes saw ‘The Love Letters’ which got my intrigued so I ‘googled’ and did find ‘The Love Letters’ but also a lovely movie which I wouldn’t have watched without your cookbook. Also had a dream that night that I met you 2 in the supermarket and told you about it. Weird hey.
    Good luck with your cook book and your journey through life. xx

  215. I ‘make it merry’ by embracing each day as an adventure with my two little girls!

  216. I make it merry by taking some time out every day just for ME, to do something good for my own body and mind instead of allowing myself to put others’ favours first (a habit I’ve been in for my entire life!). Following my bliss has helped me pull myself out of a depression/funk after a chain reaction of unfortunate life events! Thanks girls! xx

  217. I make it Merry every day by making sure that I eat foods that boost my vitality and energy. In this way, I can also make it merry with my husband every day ;D

  218. I ‘make it merry’ each day by enjoying the process of creating beautiful food and having the opportunity to eat it with the ones I love. This helps me to ensure I eat healthier and have a much better eating relationship.

    Very excited to receive your new book (I’m sure my hesitant husband is going to love it as much as me after he tastes some of the recipes)!!

  219. Make it merry everyday by first loving yourself and nourishing yourself with love happiness good food and laughter. By doing this you have more of yourself to give to make others happy xo

  220. I’ve only recently come across your site & I’m instantly in love! I make it merry in my house by constantly trying new, nourishing & healthy recipes. After quitting sugar 6 months ago with two young children, their health & nutrition is paramount. The kids are merry, which makes for a very merry mumma & the hubby loves it too – merry wife, merry life!

  221. I Make it Merry by considering how a meal will contribute to my health and wellness before I enjoy it. This helps to ensure my wellbeing is as Merry as can be 🙂

  222. Just bought your book – SO excited – can’t wait to get it! I’m really conscious about promoting healthy choices for/to my family (a work in progress) so finding amazing recipes that taste as good as they look makes its so much easier! I don’t want my 7 year old daughter to have a negative attitude towards any foods – there is already enough social pressure out there – but I do want to encourage her towards the healthy alternatives! Leading by example!!!

    I attempt to make it merry everyday by starting each day with a kiss for my partner, a hug for my daughter, a walk for the dog and then catching up on all the awesome creations health conscious people like yourselves post on instagram!!! The daily inspiration is what keeps me striving to improve my own lifestyle, and perhaps provide inspiration for others 🙂

  223. I Make it Merry by fueling my body with wholesome and nourishing food, find my movement with intense HIIT training or gentle yoga, and free my soul with meditation, loving myself and serving others xx

  224. Ladies, I am so excited about this book. Congrats, and thank you! . (And kudos to all these generous sponsors!)
    Here’s how I keep it merry (I hope its not too long, I think I enjoyed doing this too much!)

    Every day begins with bone broth and prayer
    Essentials to my body and soul self-care
    I ask for guidance on how to serve
    And escape the crippling fears that none of us deserve
    ‘Student’ is my mantra and intention

    I repeat the word throughout the day
    Its like balm on my anxious heart
    It melts and rips and shreds that wretched thing called ‘Fear’ apart
    Curiosity becomes my play
    Mistakes become my goal
    Failure is no longer a blackened cloud
    No, it carries excitement
    It brings growth
    It fosters hope

    I meet midday with dance
    This freedom, this hope, ripe in every bump and grind
    I shake it off
    I see a sky full of stars
    I shine bright like a diamond
    I keep the blinds open
    And then I eat zoodles.

    Some days I get weary
    (And teary)
    I have to make it merry. every. day. My soul blinks.
    This shit is heavy and hard
    Like it is when I eat too many carbs!
    My thoughts go sour
    Failure looms
    My stomach clenches

    I remember.

    Failure was a mistake
    Mistakes become lessons
    Learning was the goal
    The cloud brightens

    I get my phone and open “Merry & bright”
    Keen and eager to write
    Far away, mum has already written her gratitude
    She gives thanks for rain and friends and food
    Me too
    And for lessons and love
    Broth and zoodles
    Stereos and sweat pants
    And for tomorrow’s chances
    To make it merry

  225. I make it merry everyday by living a healthy and active life with my beautiful baby girl. She is intolerant and allergic to loads of things so we enjoy cooking all your recipes, eating them and then spending time together. Just the simple things in life!

  226. Post
  227. I have just bought the book and have not received it as yet. But my life will become more the merrier with it as it will give me freedom to choose amazing paleo inspired recipes which I can cook when moving overseas for a posting for one year. So excited and cannot wait.

  228. It is so easy to get catch up in the grind of everyday life. I aim to have a “merry moment” everyday. It could be savouring a cup of tea or coffee in my favorite cup/mug, catching the train and have undisturbed podcast time or laughing as my almost two year old puts yoghurt all over his face and hair after a shower just because it feels nice (no point in getting upset just go with it).

  229. Congratulations ladies on the book launch! I absolutely love following you on Instagram it fills my news feed with colour and creativity! I purchased your book not too long ago and have already made a dozen of your recipes – your blueberry and lemon slice being one of my favourites! Being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last year has been a struggle to say the least! Things we take for granted in life such as eating – now a challenge I had to face every day! Its so hard to find real healthy food and recipes and there are so many blogs and cookbooks out there! But stumbling across your blog has given me a newfound hope! Your healthy and delicious recipes are now a daily food choice for me and not to mention considerably low GI and low carb! I even showed your recipes to my dietician and she is ecstatic to see me eating so healthy, and even said she would buy the book also!

    So finally, I ‘make it merry’ everyday by not letting my disease define my life. I get up each morning being thankful for what I have and the resources I have to get it. Your recipes have significantly assisted in this, and I am truly grateful to you both for that! So keep up the amazing work ladies, there are a whole lot of us out here who owe you so much! xx

  230. I am slowly learning to “make me merry”. I’ve come a long way from where I was 3 years ago – 50kgs lighter, pretty much off sugar and feeling fitter than I ever have, but still suffering from the dreaded tummy bloats and general feelings of just plain yuk some days. I’ve been interested in food but realise that its not just the food – its about attitude and well being also. I stumbled on your website and was immediately struck by its energy, enthusiasm and well, feeling of “upness” for want of a better word. I cant seem to get enough information from you. Its finally clicked for me and I couldn’t wait to get your book and to start incorporating changes. Small to start with but focusing on small consistent changes will ultimately get me living a merrymaker life. Your enthusiasm is already rubbing off on me. I’m excited!!!

  231. Even though my sister and I live in different states, we keep each other merry by sharing daily anecdotes in our lives such as what we are grateful for each day and our favourite recipes.

  232. I’m so excited to get my hands on my hard cover copy of this amazing book.
    I am sooooo proud of you ladies. I can’t wait to make your amazing recipes come to life on our dinner table xxxx

  233. I ‘Make it Merry’ everyday by taking time out for self care. I light a candle, I meditate and best of all I cook with love the most wonderful food for my family. I am certainly looking forward to enjoying the recipes in your amazing book and sharing your love for food with my family xx

  234. I make it merry everyday by always ensuring I have ‘me’ time.

    Some days it might be having a Crio Bru (on homemade almond milk, of course!) while watching my bunny bounce around, taking time to read a book, doing yoga, reading a blog, taking my daughter for a walk in the pram, having a massage, having a workout session at 6:30am or spending time on a Sunday cooking up a storm, quiet cuddles with my family, etc… all because I want to.

    Being more mindful to ensure I get at least a few minutes of ‘me’ time everyday ensures I am a better mummy, wife and person.

  235. Thanks for the AMAZING book ladies! I Make It Merry everyday by making sure I have some music on while I am baking in the kitchen. Nothing like some singing and dancing whilst stirring, mixing and beating!

  236. I make it merry every day by eating food that makes me feel good, getting outside and remembering to be grateful the good things in life! xx

Thank you both for your energy and constant inspiration and helping me and many others to be ‘ merry every day!’

    I make it merry in the kitchen by sharing my love of cooking with others. Cooking is such a joyous event for me because I’m either spending time with my husband, nourishing myself and my new baby girl, or making something to share with family and friends! Baking is such a stress reliever for me – the shopping, the smells, the cooking music and dancing while I wait… It all helps to make cooking merry

  242. Congratulations on your book, ladies! Can’t wait to receive my copy in the post.

    I Make It Merry’ every day by smiling and laughing at any chance. I love that a smile and a giggle are so contagious. Of course, a variety of good food contributes to this by making me feel great so the smiles and giggles just come naturally 🙂

I love being able to go to your recipes and tell him that yes, we can make this for him to eat today! I am so grateful that I have my little boy to cook with, my older son to love everything we serve up to him and my beautiful partner who knows we are cooking with his health and happiness in mind. I can’t wait for your book to arrive in the mail, I nearly got the ebook just to start straight away, but my son actually goes to bed with the recipe books and uses his reading time to decide what we will cook together! So it will be a big treat for him when it arrives in the mail! Thank you girls for being crazy enough to do a hardcopy!

  266. Thank you ladies for extending it by one day. I too was someone that thought they had missed the boat!

    I make it merry every day by giving thanks and being grateful for all that is around me. I concentrate on the appreciation of the simple. Each day I chase those sunrises and sunsets and then look for the moon in all her stages. I take time each day to be outside in the dark and light (rain, hail or shine) and feel how lucky I and we are to be able to witness this natual routine.

  267. We make it Merry in our house by making cooking an experience for all.

    Hi Anne! Wow love your entry! What is the movie that you watched? We’d love to know about it!

    We are so glad you stumbled upon us and so happy to have you part of our merry community! <3 HUGE LOVE e + c

  278. Post
  279. I ‘make it merry’ everyday by loving real food and learning how to make delicious meals and treats with it! This year has been a real health journey and a massive learning curve away from processed food, gluten, dairy and sugar. Thanks you two for your great recipes which have helped me along the way!Xx Jo

  280. Merry recipes for good health and happy kids!!! Definitely makin’ it merry every day for us! Thanks so much for your passion and for sharing your wisdom and fab recipes. Certainly appreciated by my merry band!

  281. Thanks Emma and Carla, the movie was called “The Love Letter’s’, it had Jennifer Jason Leigh and Campbell Scott in it and was made in 1998. They met (well they didn’t actually ever actually meet, as they were from different generations) when they started writing letters to each other and they would magically appear in the secret compartment of the writing desk that she used to own and that he found in an antique shop. It’s very girlie and romantic and shows that love can transcend through time and space. If you’ve even seen ‘The Lake House’ with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock it’s similar to that. I loved finding that treasure when looking for “The Love Letters’ that is one of your prizes. Another coincidence I was mentioning ‘The Love Letters’ to my yoga teacher as I though the concept of them was unique and intriguing as well and she knows one of the girls that started them. Love to you both and good luck with your book, it has started off awesomely you should be so proud. Anne xx

  282. My four year old makes our lives merry every day with her sunny nature and constant smile I can give a little back to her by feeding with the best quality whole foods cooked with love using recipes compiled my The Mertymaker Sisters. Looks so wonderful got an additional book for my sister in law
