A HEALTH CONSCIOUS FAMILY
Who want to prevent illness and promote better health.
Today, as a family we proactively choose health. We make time to de-stress, to enjoy each other’s company, to exercise (all 3 of us are ranked indoor rowers) and most importantly, we choose to eat Vegan foods that are as organic, as in-season, as unprocessed and as freshly prepared as possible.
Junk or processed Vegan food is a rarity in this Mama’s kitchen. If there is a treat on their table like Mama’s donut holes, spinach chips and green sundaes, rest assured that they are all freshly prepared, kid- and family-approved, nutritious and Vegan. What’s more, they don’t take more than 30 minutes of active ‘work’ and they truly are so healthy you will have no qualms serving them for breakfast!
Mama in the Kitchen… and she ain’t cookin’! includes our family’s dietary adventures and choices, how this Mama gets her boys to eat more unprocessed Vegan foods and how this Mama pampers herself! There are many well-researched posts and tips on how the Vegan diet affects a family’s health. There are also raw and cooked Vegan family recipes that are quick (under 10 ingredients and 30 minutes of active work – otherwise, I have no time for them myself) and easy to follow (not complicated) for parents who don’t have much time and yet want healthy Vegan fare for the family. There are also numerous reviews on cosmetic products.
Who is Mama?
I am a passionate Mama in the Kitchen. I believe in fresh, organic, local/in season, unprocessed Vegan food. A Culinarian with cooking school, restaurant and catering backgrounds, I am also a certified Ayurvedic Nutrition Therapist and co-author of Yoga for Cancer: Esoteric, Yogic and Dietary Remedies. I recently completed Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s Plant Based Nutrition Course at eCornell University. My family and I believe we are healthier both short- and long-term because of the addition of more and more unprocessed and unadulterated Vegan foods into their diets. Through my blog, I hope to share information with other parents on how to create a disease-free, healthy life by adding more raw fruits and vegetables into their family’s diets.
Hope you stay and enjoy looking around!
