Made with lots and lots of Love!

When I started Green Mommy Guide, my baby, Drew was only 6 weeks old. I knew I wanted to make my own baby food for him for so many reasons:the financial savings, the health benefits, and being able to control exactly what does and what doesn't going into my little guy's body. But I haven't had the chance until the last few weeks. Drew is 6 months old now and has graduated past cereal. He now eats bananas, pears, sweet potatoes, and green beans- all of which has been made with a ton of love by his mama. The "work" (if you can call it that) of making his food is far less time consuming that I thought it might be. We're talking 10 minutes, tops, for a batch that lasts all week. The benefits are beyond what I thought they'd be, too. When Drew gives me a big, orange, organic sweet potato grin, I know its because of something I made for him, not just something I grabbed from a store shelf!

Anyway, I hope everyone's having a great weekend! Stay tuned for a whole new section coming to Green Mommy Guide- I hope you'll find it fun and helpful!

Blog Needs Some Lovin' and Mom Power!

I've been neglecting this blog lately. And that's wrong. It didn't do anything to deserve that!
Things with Green Mommy Guide are really taking off, getting more and more readers and email subscribers every day. I recently read an article in O Magazine talking about how "Soccer Moms" are going to be the ones who change the world when it comes to going green. While I bristle at the term "soccer mom" because I find it dismissive (especially when they use it during elections!), I agree that this change will be largely initiated by moms. We are the ones who largely make the purchasing decisions for the household, and we live in a profit-driven society. We are the ones who are vocal about getting pesticides out of our children's foods, vaccines, and clothing. We are the ones who can connect with each other, be it in person or online, to create a movement.
Anyway, feel free to check back here often for updates and random thoughts and to leave you feedback about Green Mommy Guide. I need your help to keep the site growing!
