Those of you who have been hanging around me long enough know I do not really believe in strict diets because they are not sustainable. Sure, you can lose a bunch of weight on keto, but are you really never going to have a piece of bread again? Raw vegan sounds great i...

My handsome husband hates mushrooms. I've seen him pick them out of every dish they are included in. So does my mom come to think of it. Somehow on the way home from the beach yesterday, I convinced him to try a new adaptogen drink made with fermented tea and mushrooms...

A group of 15 women last year, in a small church group focused on nutrition, were shocked when I told them on Thanksgiving to...eat whatever. They were like "but you always say...not to...and this is better..." and YES, they had every right to be shocked! Yet, I know b...

Sauce, drinks, dried...this time of year, we want them all! 
 

Cranberries are native to North America, which is why they are such a huge part of our Thanksgiving feast! Due to their high nutrient and antioxidant content, they are often referred to as a superfood. And y...

I love when I come home from the health food store with an accidental purchase. I grabbed what I thought were the small yellow tomatoes my kids love, but once we opened them felt they were sticky to the touch. It reminded me of a tomatillo and for good reason!

When you...

Resistant starch - what is it and why is it important to know? It's significant because it's starch that doesn't get metabolized and therefore doesn't get stored as fat! Interested now?

For those of you who don't know, beans (a primary source of protein for vegans)...

Lunch boxes all packed up with nutrients for the day could be relatively easy if you are food prepping during the school year because, you know, schedules! We need to be certain places at certain times, so we are forced to plan. But what about the summer?

I am all about...

Most American's have heard by now to take a probiotic daily. We are concerned about gut health and the good bacteria overpopulating the bad bacteria in our digestive tract. If you have already added a clinically tested supplement to your daily regime, thumbs up. But wh...

I know you think I am crazy right now. A few months ago I would have thought the same thing. I would have clicked on this article, read the title and moved on with my day. Thinking impossible, no way, not my budget. But let me tell you. There is a way. High quality, he...

Green Mama Mission

We are a tribe of moms who want the safest home for our children, both inside and outside our actual house. We band together to share info about health, fitness, holistic wellness & more, not just with other moms, but everyone we know. When we feel good, we want to share why and how! 

 

We want to make it through this sometimes messy, but beautiful road of motherhood armed with the best information we have to make the best decisions we can, daily, for ourselves and our precious family.

 

We are the glue that keeps our family together. And we'd prefer that glue to be non-toxic.

It was 2009. I was a newlywed, working as a designer in the fashion industry in mid-town Manhattan, and unhealthy. I thought I was living a healthy lifestyle...
