Genevieve of Mama Natural and her sweet family stopped by the farm yesterday!

Weird fact: Our three year-olds were born one day apart . . . and so were our 5 month old babies.

Another fact, but not weird: She is one of the most fun people I know.

If you could spend the day with any blogger, who would it be?

"Because of my culinary background, I've tasted a lot of risotto.

I've had some that were simply OK, some that were pretty good and some that left me 'needing a moment alone' while I regained my composure and let the strength return to my knees. This risotto falls into the latter category."

LOVE this guest post from Real Food Girl: Unmodified! I've always been intimidated by risotto - not anymore!

It's easy to think Earth Day is nothing more than a token nod to environmentalists, but that's not how it got started at all. In 1970, 20 million Americans flooded the streets to protest DDT, oil spills resulting from carelessness, and widespread pollution.

Their raucous protest led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts.

Sure, politicians have diluted the effectiveness of the laws that were enacted. That's why this day exists - to remind them that WE STILL CARE.

What is the #1 environmental issue you want addressed in our lifetime?

Have nanoparticles been tested for safety as a food additive? Um, noooooo.

Are they added to salad dressings without being labeled, despite preliminary research that indicates they could cause health problems? Of course!

Here are the top five ingredients that made me ditch store-bought dressings.

Introduction
Real food blogger, writer, wife, and mommy. 

Frequent Blog Topics:


I’m a mom. I have two beautiful children that were born at home in my living room. You can read their stories here and here.

I’m a researcher. Questioning the status quo comes naturally to me, which is why I rely on evidence-based research to guide my decisions on vaccinations, birth, extended-breastfeeding, circumcision, real food and a bunch of other topics.

I’m a doer. For me, life’s pleasures come through the pursuit of the next goal. I love to DO, and to do well. Unfortunately, our society’s obsession with performance often becomes a pitfall. Who wants to be an amazing wife? Supermom? ME! Not to mention the other “master’s degrees” I am currently pursuing: chef, organic gardener, etc.

What’s wrong with this culture we live in? Nothing really, except that it’s totally unnatural. In the past, our desires were moderated by natural constraints. When someone was tired, they slept. Now they down a pot of coffee and keep going. 

Everything is in hyperdrive. Consider this: It used to take 4-5 years for a cow to reach it’s mature weight, but through the “miracle” of science (i.e. liquified fat, protein supplements, synthetic estrogen and corn feed) it now only takes about sixteen months.

In our attempt to become uber-individuals we have lost touch with the natural rhythms and cycles that bring meaning and enjoyment to our lives.

What do I hope people will get out of this blog? I hope they will encounter ideas that help them re-establish rhythms and a connection to Nature without having to go out and live in the woods. 

We are intentionally bringing Nature’s rhythms back into our lives, and we would love for you to take part in the process.

Some of you curious types may be asking yourselves, What is a Mommypotamus? If you want to know check out this post.
