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 believe that anyone can create a flexible, natural lifestyle without a ton of stress.
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 do my best, but sometimes compromise is the best solution.
At Mindful Momma, I’ll teach you how to read labels and ask questions, so you can make better choices when you shop. I’ll show you how to make some of your own cleaning and beauty products that are affordable and safe to use. You’ll also find some of my favorite healthy recipes and tips for living a green, healthy and happy life! My goal is to provide well-researched information and to help you prioritize so you can have fun making the changes that work for you!

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 even the occasional diet soda, 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 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.
Through fact-based information, creative thinking and mindful conversation, I can help YOU craft the unique path to healthy, natural living that works best for you and your family.
