And in this case, we’re not just talking about your overall outlook on life. Like so many mamas, you took the Group B Strep test in pregnancy and your results were positive for the presence of the bacteria. Maybe you immediately wondered what you “did wrong,” or if there was anything you could do to prevent it.
I know I did. Continue ReadingRead More »
Please join me in welcoming Mary Voogt of Homemade Dutch Apple Pie as today’s guest blogger on Mommypotamus.com! Mary is a SAHM who struggled for years with digestive problems, eating disorders, anxiety, infertility and OCD. Her journey led her to follow Nourishing Traditions/Weston A.

And though I’m sad to see it go, I’m happy to see fall come. But first, how about one more ice cream flavor? Continue ReadingRead More »
But they’re mostly of the modern day sort. Occasionally, though, I come across a recipe or ingredient that seems like it was pulled directly from one of Grimm’s stories. How else could one feel about keeping dragon’s blood in the cupboard, and enchanted fire cider in the fridge? Continue ReadingRead More »
Note From Mommypotamus: Today’s recipe for crunchy, maple goodness comes from Carol of Ditch the Wheat. Her new ebook, The Grain-Free Snacker, is on sale right now. We’re talking grain-free pizza pockets, nachos, three kinds of cheesecake, tart cherry gumdrops, gummy worms and salami basil fig bites, so no procrastinating, mmmkay? Grab it here.
I’m Carol Lovett from Ditch the Wheat and I am thrilled to be sharing a recipe from my new cookbook, The Grain-Free Snacker. I have been a huge fan of Mommypotamus for a long time. I finally got to meet my hero in July. I’ve been living in Nashville for a few months and I was invited to see Heather’s farm and meet her family. It was an epic adventure full of goat kisses and walks through a dream backyard. Continue ReadingRead More »
It’s true. And I still have friends. And no, it’s not because all bad breath is equal over the internet. Despite how unseemly my confession must seem, I didn’t give up toothpaste in an attempt to create a six foot “personal space bubble.” My mouth is actually minty fresh as I type this – I just took a closer look at the label and decided that toothpaste and I needed to break up.
Sorry, toothpaste. It’s not me. It’s you, and here’s why: Continue ReadingRead More »
Note from Mommypotamus: Today’s post about dairy-free ice cream bites comes from Katie of Girl Meets Nourishment, whom I’ve invited to be a regular contributor this summer. Thank you, Katie!
The chocolate covered miniature ones? What if I were to tell you that you can emulate those little ice cream bites with bananas…oh yes! And they won’t have a ton of nasty additives or “mystery” ingredients in them, plus they are dairy-free. Continue ReadingRead More »
Bacon is its fairy godmother. Over the years I’ve failed more times than I’ve succeeded in getting my family to love liver. This homemade chili and bayou dirty rice have gone over very well, but it’s not like I personally jumped out of bed in the morning and thought, “YAY, it’s liver day!”
Until now. Continue ReadingRead More »
The post that was originally published here, I did it because I value the trust you’ve placed in me. At this time, to protect my family to the best of my ability, I’m choosing not to discuss oil companies at all, nor publish comments that mention them. I feel incredibly sad that I have to limit the discussion in this way, and I am very sorry that I had to remove some of your comments even though there was nothing inherently wrong with them. Please know that I value the time you take to share your thoughts, and this is a unique circumstance I did not anticipate. Continue ReadingRead More »
