Meet our new, very talented Real Food Contributors for the Scratch Mommy E-Magazine!

Introducing our Real Food Contributors – Part One

As the Editor in Chief and Editor of the real food section of Scratch Mommy, I am so thrilled to be creating content with such an amazing team of writers. The real food section will be a devoted space to make your mouth water and want to eat the screen. Hehe, no but really. We’ll use the finest, wholesome, most natural and organic ingredients as possible — you’ll never need to worry about processed foods, GMOs, or any other yucky ingredients in our recipes. Just delicious and nourishing *real* food.

If you’re on a specific food allergy diet, you can count on those recipes being on Scratch Mommy. You’ll be able to find recipes of all skill levels because I want anyone and everyone to feel like they can cook from scratch!

With that, let me introduce you to our Real Food Team!

What does food from scratch mean to you? Food from scratch is a labor of love. Just as many mommies have come to realize, many “foods” in the grocery store are not really food at all. As a result, my hubby and I decided to take matters in to our own hands, and kitchen, and start making more from scratch. I’m not naturally domestic, so I hope this gives hope to those of you who desire a more natural way of living, but weren’t born with the natural talent to do so.

What does food from scratch mean to you? Food from scratch is more than just delicious recipes. It’s made with ingredients that nourish and heal our bodies.

What does food from scratch mean to you? Real food means food that God made, not man made. It means healthier bodies and alert minds. People who are connected to their food, their environment and their community. Unlike the big box food companies, it’s a culture built on caring and awareness, not profit. And when you’re making real food from scratch, you can have all this without lots of time and effort.
