Taking Care of Mama: Post Partum Recovery by Donielle, written for Simple Organic – “We seem to be focused so much on “doing it all” that even after we women give birth, we seem to think we should be able to bounce right back up and begin about a normal day. To be the “super mom.” Or to get back into our pre-pregnancy pants as soon as possible! I wanted so badly to “have it all together” and be the woman everyone else wanted to be, but for me this thinking led to a longer recovery and undue emotional stress.”

Dry to Preserve: A Quick Guide to Dehydration at Keeper of the Home – “Are you preparing to preserve the fruits of your labors (pun intended)?  Preserving your own food is an inexpensive and healthful way to feed your family, prepare for emergencies and practice self-sufficiency.”

Simple Green Salad by Donielle at Naturally Knocked Up – “The longer I’ve lived my life, the more I want to experience new flavors, and this one truly ‘hit the spot’ so to speak.”

Have a wonderful weekend mamas!

About donielle

Donielle is a natural momma of two, lover of real foods, and owner and editor of Grand Rapids Natural Living and Naturally Knocked Up. You can usually find her in the kitchen whipping up some nourishing foods, cuddled on the couch reading books to the littles, avoiding the laundry and Mt. Saint Dishes, or tapping away on the laptop. Her husband puts up with her sometimes crazy "hippie" ways, but loves her regardless. Welcome to my home away from home.
