At Mindful Momma you’ll find simple solutions and inspiration to pave the way for a healthy, natural home and lifestyle.
Hi there! I’m Micaela
I started the Mindful Momma blog because I want to help YOU make lifestyle and product choices that are better for your health and for the planet too.
And I believe that YOU can create a flexible, green & healthy lifestyle that fits your budget and does not add stress to your life.
Just like you, I’m a busy mom, juggling lots of balls in the air. I want my family to eat healthy food but we can’t pull it off for every single meal. I want to buy the safest, eco-friendly products but I need to keep the budget in mind. I try hard to reduce waste and protect the planet, but it’s not always possible. I do my best and I’m always improving, but sometimes compromise is the best solution. I get it.
What will you Find at Mindful Momma?
Look, I know it can be super confusing and overwhelming to figure out what changes to make first, which brands to trust, how to avoid being fooled by misleading marketing claims….it’s a lot! But I’m here to help!
At Mindful Momma, I’ll teach you how to:
- Read labels and ask questions, so you can make better choices when you shop
- Take baby steps toward reducing waste and being more environmentally conscious
- Find the best non-toxic and eco-friendly products that have been vetted for safety
- Make some of your own cleaning and beauty products that are affordable and safe to use.

My goal is to provide well-researched information, and to help you prioritize so you can make the lifestyle and product changes that work for you and your family!

More about Micaela
Before I had kids, I didn’t worry much about healthy living. But once I was in charge of little human lives, my perspective changed fast. I began researching the health risks and benefits of everything from food to gear to cleaning products and quickly became overwhelmed. It was a scary world out there – but I didn’t want to live in fear.
So I started making lifestyle changes and product swaps that were healthier and more natural. No, I didn’t immediately throw out everything in my cupboard or under my kitchen sink, but I intentionally swapped the worst things out for better ones. Slowly but surely, small changes turned into habits, and healthier choices became second nature. Instead of feeling stressed, I became more relaxed and confident that I was creating a healthy home and natural lifestyle for my family.
Yes, I still indulge in chocolate cake and the occasional junk food, but living by my mantra of mindful moderation allows me to enjoy life and be healthy at the same time!
Since starting this blog, I have become an author, a natural living educator and an activist for safe and sustainable products. I have spoken at conferences and events, I’ve lobbied for safer chemical laws, and I have consulted with many brands and businesses. My book, Practically Green: Your Guide to EcoFriendly Decision Making was published in 2009.
