Introducing Our Real Food Contributors – Part Two

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 the second part of our Real Food Team!

Blog: Happy Blurry Beautiful

Bio: Ritu lives in the small coastal city of White Rock, BC with her husband, son, and fur baby. She has had a lifelong passion for food, which started as a child between helping her family prepare dinner and watching her favourite cooking shows as a five year old. While many were playing with Barbies, Ritu pretended to star in her own cooking show as a child. When Ritu is not cooking or eating or thinking about cooking or eating, she enjoys hiking, yoga, reality TV, and writing.

What does food from scratch mean to you? Food from scratch is food that is made at home, with wholesome, real ingredients. This is food that is prepared with love and thought and uses ingredients that we can understand, not ingredients with complicated chemical names that we can’t pronounce.  Food from scratch means bringing a family together, not just to consume a meal, but to participate in the whole experience. Ultimately, to me, food from scratch means that we gain a full understanding of what we are putting into our bodies, therein contributing to greater control of our lifestyles and bodies.

What does food from scratch mean to you? Living on 0.17 of an acre and using what we have. We have a big garden, 10 chickens, 6 fruit trees, strawberries, etc. You don’t need to have a lot of land to homestead, but rather use the land you have wisely!

What does food from scratch mean to you? It means that I’ll never have to worry about my son eating something that he’s allergic to. It means that traditions are not lost to convenience. It means that I know that what I’m putting in my mouth is something that I have qualified as food, and it’s not full of random additives that someone who doesn’t have my best interest at heart says food is.
