A New Blog for a New Life


I am so thrilled to start this baby/mama-centric blog on clean eating.

I knew that I would make my own baby food, but that's all I knew when Baby G turned 6 months old. I had visions of a freezer stocked with purees. Of a happy, smiling baby gurgling her way through a rainbow of food. I would be the mama who would boast of a child who ate anything I gave her from spinach to berries to smashed bananas. We would be epic! Other mamas would hush when we walked in the room whispering about the baby who loved snacking on artichokes and kale.

In short, I was delusional.

Baby G is the only baby in the world who does not like bananas. Spinach is questionable and berries are a crap shoot. 

Some of the time she eats, some of the time she is more interested in pulling her socks off, and most of the we are both covered in baby food and I'm lucky if Baby G swallowed a spoonful.

It's cute, but it can get frustrating.

On this blog, I look forward to sharing with you some of our recipes, our tactics, and how we are leading our whole family in a whole foods, unprocessed diet.

I would love to hear from you, so please don't be shy. Introduce yourself and if applicable, your kiddos. Let me know what you would like to see in terms of recipes and topics.


  1. I think G might be in the running for cutest baby ever and I don't say that about many babies ;) I did babysit for a little boy once that was also disgusted by bananas and still is 8 years later. For G's sake, I hope she grows out of that dislike because they are so good!

  2. Thanks Kinley! Yes, I really hope that she loves bananas. It's one of my favorites. What spinach is to JP/Manatee, bananas are to me.

  3. Hi Kimberly and Baby G! I am Kristen and my son is James (8 wks). I look forward to reading this blog and going through your journey in hopes of learning some tips for my own to follow. I am excited to see where this goes. Thanks!

    1. Hi Kristen and James! Oh, 8 weeks, I remember the days. So tiny and so precious. Enjoy and thanks for joining us.
