I have quite a few friends who are new moms or who are about to be new moms, and I've been thinking about them lately, and musing about my own experiences in the early days of motherhood. It was overwhelming and intense, and one of the things I wished I had done was to have a better idea of how to manage my kitchen and my baby.
With that in mind, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite mom-centric food blogs.
Parenthood also resulted in me reevaluating the way I feed my family. The sites I've listed give a lot of food for thought on that score. I don't agree with all of it, and that's just fine. One of the things all moms must come to terms with is that there are a lot of opinions out there about how you should raise/feed/talk to/discipline/look at/breathe near your children. The only opinion that truly matters is yours. Forge your own path, and do it as fearlessly as you can. You are awesome!
There are lots of great blogs out there, and these are just a few of the ones I've found most helpful and delightful.
Some great recipes here, easily catergorized by "Nap-Friendliness" or "One-Handed Meals" you can eat while nursing or running after a toddler.
Lots of homemade baby food recipes and ideas for first foods at every stage of development. Also lots of video tutorials!
This has got to be one of my favorites. I love how fearlessly this family approaches feeding children. It's not all chicken nuggets and carrot sticks.
Just as the name implies, this site is great for families on the go. Squeezing dinner prep into even the shortest catnap starts to sound like a breeze! One to bookmark for sure.
I love this site all around. Great food, fun parenting ideas, awesome book recommendations. But the food is my favorite. (Surprise, surprise...)
