I’m truly lucky to live in Sonoma County. Especially when it comes to seasonal organic produce; I could not be luckier, nor happier. When I became a first-time mama, I wanted to make sure my lil’ man had a healthy start; a diet filled with local organic foods.
My favorite implements, Vita Mix Mixer which pulverizes to a molecular level (good for seeds), I know–serious stuff, followed by the steamer and food processor Beaba Babycook (at its hay-day I was working this machine 3 times a day):
And for online cooking inspiration, I loooove Weelicious! Katherine, Kenya and Chloe provide limitless ideas in the kitchen.
My journey begins with the early months…
Everyone told my husband and I that there was “no instruction manual” when you leave the hospital with your new baby. Yeah, no kidding! After enduring the first few weeks of ‘basic non-training’ we began to think we had things pretty much wired. Ooops! Finding his perfect bio-rhythm (for lack of a better word) continues to elude us to this day- but it doesn’t stop us from trying to strike that nebulous thing we call “balance”. And of course, as soon as they flash you that brilliant smile, you tend to forget about the fact that you haven’t slept in weeks. Hopefully, I’ll shake out a few techniques so that others may prosper. Understanding of course, that my efforts may be in vein? After all, if it were a science; wouldn’t there be an ‘instruction manual’?
Now for the second stage, toddler-dom, gulp.
Bring it on!
