The Momtrepreneur Movement

“She’s on a mission. She wants a better life with more flexibility. She wants financial freedom. She wants to impact the world, and be able to provide for herself and her family” Sound familiar?

The 1 Minute Breakfast Solution for Kids

The necessity of a healthy breakfast is indisputable.  But reality? If your family is anything like mine, we run late, miss buses, can’t find clean socks, forget to brush our teeth, and sometime do homework last minute in the morning.  A healthy breakfast? Sometimes that just doesn’t happen….. Being a nutrition advocate, and borderline hippy-mom,…

Microdermabrasion Treatments? Yes!

One Year Clean

Eating that is! It’s been exactly one year since I have changed my life around and focused on clean eating. According to Fitness Magazine clean eating “is about eating whole foods, or “real” foods — those that are un- or minimally processed, refined, and handled, making them as close to their natural form as possible.” All these years I thought I was eating healthy, until I realized, I was not. The body needs essential nutrients, and they are just not found in the average American’s food supply anymore. You must now become mindful of where you get your food, what’s in it, where it was grown, and with what chemicals! It is said that chronic illnesses has been on the rise since the introduction of the “Twinkie” times about 100 years ago, and that allergies are 400% on the rise correlated precisely growth wise to the introduction of GMOs!

My “Liquid Prozac”

The stresses of today are immeasurable. How have we created a society where stress is the number one killer? How did we deviate so much from “the village” it takes to raise a family,  where everyone helps everyone, to the majority of people needing pharmaceutical drugs to get thru their day? I just learned that…

Emulating the Willow

“That the yielding conquers the resistant and the soft conquers the hard is a fact known to all yet utilized by none” -Lao Tzu I struggle daily with my patience, and have just recently had the need to start high blood pressure medication because I am unable to instill this simple yet profound statement in…

Blessing from Cherubs (in disguise)

“I was in heaven with God and he gave me a choice of moms and I chose you”.

I read this expert from Sue Patton Thoele’s Woman’s Book of Soul just as I was about to snap this morning after I found uncleaned peanut butter oil smeared all over the kitchen floor and tracked through out the house from my son and his friends mid night snacks during their sleep over last night

Children Lacking Essential Nutrients in the Diet: Hidden Hunger

Hunger is an epidemic that plagues millions of children worldwide. We have all seen images of children in developing countries that do not have enough to eat. They may appear very skinny, and in other cases have bloated bellies. These things are caused by the lack of calories and protein in the diet. But, there is a new form of hunger on the rise, mainly in developed countries like the United States, where food is plentiful. It is referred to as hidden hunger.

Shall we dance?

If anyone ever wondered what goes on behind closed doors in a professional dancers household, this is it! It can happen at any time! Out family is so accustomed to music playing and dancing being a part of our life, that is completely normal to bust the moves out in the kitchen, during dinner if a good song happens to comes on, or embarrassingly enough, sometimes even in public.

Why the kids and I Yevo.

Yes. I turned it into a verb because that is what it is. It is the food lifestlye I have chosen for the kids and I, my immediate family, my friends, and even my ex significant others and their families. WHY, you ask, does someone need to choose a particular style of eating? IS all this hype really necessary? Or is it just another conspiracy theory or marketing scheme? Well, you may be extremely busy in your daily schedule, but I am about to tell you some information that could change your life. Whether it be for health or convenience and life simplification, I have chosen to Yevo, and here is why.

I should never have hired you. You have too many children.

Happy Independence day to me! Feb 19th, 2016 marks the two year anniversary that I quit my job against a tyrant boss who I’ll just say is one of those people we all need to pray for. (I’ll keep the negative vibes off of my computer) I literally felt as if I sold my soul to the devil in desperation when I accepted the job after a separation from my then significant other that left me financially broke. I traded in my then two year old to day care for a salary that would more than comfortably support my three kids and I. Little did I know what the next year of my life would entail. For if I DID, I would have rather stayed broke and accepted government assistance, as nothing is worth your physical and mental health, or that of your children’s.
