Blog Bash
I am really excited to participate in NYAT's first Blog Bash!  Here is my introductory post!

1) Why do you blog? I decided to start my blog for several reasons.  I was a French teacher before having my son, and spent a significant amount of time living in France.  When I returned to the United States I was appalled by the American diet and I was especially appalled at the diets of our teenagers.  As a teacher, I integrated a lot of cooking into my curriculum, to teach kids about a healthy diet full of whole foods.  When I had my son, I got tons of questions from other moms about how I get my son to eat things like eggplant.  I decided to start the blog in order to get my voice out there, share what I know, and my opinions about food.  To help change the American diet for the better. 



2.) What do you blog about? The Foodie Mommie is a blog about helping families eliminate the processed foods from their diets, as well as providing tips for cooking as a family.  I also provide product reviews, videos, and live web classes.   I want my readers to be able to interact with me. 


3.) What do you find to be the biggest reward you get from blogging?  I really love the fact that I am getting to meet so many new and wonderful people.  There are so many people out there with great ideas and marvelous things to say and I feel so privileged to be a part of this culture. 


4.) How long have you been blogging?  Since March 23rd :).


5.) Let's hear the story behind your blog title! Simple, I am a total foodie and now I am a mommy too!  Mommie is spelled with an "ie" because I wanted it to match foodie :).

I love your reasons for starting a blog. It is ABSOLUTELY appalling how Americans eat and I hate that I've fallen victim to it. Maybe someday I'll get a brain and stop.. :(

Hi there, nice to meet you. I'm over from a Monday blog hop where you are the featured blog.

I have a difficult time getting my 4 year old daughter to eat veggies so from time to time, I will stick a carrot or cucumber or something like that in a fruit smoothie for her.

I bet I could learn a few tricks around here!
