We’re a somewhat outdoorsy bunch here, aren’t we? I mean, we talk a lot about exercise, organic products and eco-friendly living, so I think it’s safe to assume a good portion of us are striving for oneness with Mother Earth. Sure, I love my beauty products and my high heels, but I am no stranger to the great outdoors. In fact, every summer, Mr. Bombshell and I load up the minivan and high tail it out of the ‘burbs to spend one blissful off-the-grid week camping along the Kern River.
If you tell a non-parent that you’re on the market for laundry products for your baby, you’ll likely get a blank stare. Why would baby clothing need different treatment than grown-up clothing? Once you’ve dealt with baby laundry, though, you know what makes it “special”:
Oh how babies love the beach! The wind tickles their tiny toes and makes them giggle; the sand is fun to sift through with chubby little hands; the ocean is a source of endless mystery and amusement. Not so amusing, however, is a baby with a sunburn. Not only can a burn cause temporary discomfort, but the damage to tender skin also can have long-term repercussions, and repeated burns can result in lesions and even skin cancer.
No matter how much we try to avoid it, there are days when your family will need to eat “on the run”—whether it’s a snack while heading to soccer practice or dinner between said soccer practice and the school open house that immediately follows. Rather than resorting to junky fast food or expensive take-out, you can easily pack healthy, whole foods that satisfy hungry tummies and nourish active bodies away from home. All it takes is a little planning and creativity.
Don’t let bright orange mac and cheese land on your kids’ plates—that is, unless the color comes from roasted butternut squash instead of a packet of chemical powder! This creamy, comforting homemade version is made with fresh (or canned organic) squash, half and half and soft goat’s cheese—or you can substitute these ingredients for vegan-friendly ones. Make it a complete meal by adding your family’s favorite chopped veggies.
Spring is in the air! What better way to celebrate the start of the season than to surprise your family with a fun, healthy treat? These moist and spicy carrot muffins are studded with plump raisins (or dried cranberries—your choice!) then topped with organic shredded coconut to create mini “birds’ nests.” Decorate them with organic jellybeans or use my recipe for raw macaroons to create your own candied “eggs.”
I’m going to be perfectly honest here, I LOVE SPRING. The sun is out earlier and longer, the weather warms up and my favorite plum trees out in front of my house blossom with incredible pink flowers that brighten every morning. My family celebrates Easter, which traditionally centered around candy-filled baskets and a big feast with ham as the centerpiece.
