New year and New food... Preparation is the KEY!


Nourishing Mama Prep Day- and a crock pot recipe!!

The New Year is upon us, and we all seem to have things that we want to achieve.  If you are transitioning to a nourishing lifestyle it can become overwhelming very quickly.  It is easy to get frustrated with prep time, cooking and organizing.....No fear, Nourishing Mama is here(ok that was silly, but cute).  To cut down on wasted food, unhealthy meals or boxed food, take one day a week to plan, shop and prep your meals for the week.  It makes it SO MUCH EASIER!
You can get organized in a few hours and have all of your meals basically ready to put in the crock-pot or cook!

Duck Egg hunt

Every wonder why you can’t find your eggs from those free ranging chickens and ducks?  I do.  I usually find them about a week later in a very well hidden place.

My ducks suddenly stopped laying eggs this past week.  I was getting at least 2 a day.  It is a sad day when we run out of eggs.  I searched all the normal laying spots, and checked old laying spots.  Still nothing, until today.......Best hiding spot ever!
