We here at Healthy Moms have been watching our community grow over the years with delight. There’s such a wide range of moms who take part in our discussions, but if there’s one thing we all have in common it’s that we’re all a little bit, um…crunchy. Maybe not all equally crunchy, but if you can’t relate to at least one of these signs that you’re a crunchy mom, then we’ll kick you out of our Facebook group. Kidding. Here are 15 signs you might be a crunchy mom:
One of the hardest things to accomplish, as an ethically-minded, socially conscious parent, is keeping purchases…well, ethical. We live in a society that currently worships fast fashion and disposable, dollar store toys. Big box chains sell adorable kids’ clothing that falls apart before your children have grown out of it–and considering how fast kids grow, that’s significant. Sure, those leggings were only $5, so replacing the ones that developed a hole along the seam in just a few wears doesn’t seem like a huge deal. But when you consider how little the people who made those leggings are getting paid? It’s a huge deal.
Are the holidays over yet? If you’re anything like me (and I hope you are), there’s been a bit of overindulging happening in the past week or two. You may also have had it up to here with cooking for large gatherings, so now is the perfect time to kill two birds with one stone: go out to eat something healthy! The Healthy Moms card has you covered in that department.
Being a Healthy Mom doesn’t mean you can’t eat out when you want a treat or you’re on the go! It’s not just online orders that work for cardholders, it’s brick-and-mortar stores too. One of the wonderful things about being a cardholder as a Healthy Mom is that no matter where you are in the city, or what you’re hungry (or thirsty) for, there’s probably something nearby for you.
We’re just a few days away from December, and if you’ve been in virtually any grocery or department store, you’ve likely seen Advent calendars for sale. Yay! My kids are just finally getting to the end of their Hallowe’en stash, and now I’m being coerced into giving them a chocolate every morning? Happy holidays!
