013. Seasons, Senses, & Biodynamic Nourishment with Lily Diamond

Connection, slowing down, being more present, & returning to nature. These ideas keep presenting themselves over and over again here on the podcast in multiple episodes across a variety of topics.

Slowing down and being more present in our everyday lives—with ourselves, with our children, with the seasons—I know many mamas would like to do just that, but how? How can we take care of ourselves and be present as moms when we are so busy and fed constant contrary messages about #allthethings we need to buy, do, and be?

Maybe the answer is hidden inside of us…within our senses. And in our pantry, our kitchen, and our garden…with the natural foods and plants that are already there. Our guest today, Lily Diamond, is here to talk about idea s like these from her beautiful recipe book & blog that will encourage us to slow down, tune into our senses, and learn more about how plants can nourish us both inside and out.
