"My Mama's Milk" is here! I'm so proud of this book and I especially love how my husband, Edward Yniguez illustrated my words! This book was truly a labor of love! After writing it, it took us awhile to complete the illustrations, because we wanted them to reflect many different nursing relationships.
My Mama's Milk highlights the mother and child breastfeeding relationship and explores how each mammal makes milk specifically for their babies. As a breastfeeding Mama of color, it's important that my children have images and stories that reflect their life. As a vegan mama, it was also important for me to highlight other mammals nursing their young.
The book is available on Amazon and I'll have copies with me after my talk at the Herbivore Festival on Oct 2nd. I'll also have copies of "Where Does Dinner Come From?"
Hope to see you there!

We had a blast this year at the Green Festival! It was jam packed with activities, speakers and presentations. I went on my own on Friday and then brought the littles with me for Day 2. Check out the video to see how our 2 days at Green Fest went!
Thank You Green Fest for a fun filled 2 days and we'll see you next year!

Organic Lollipops and Fruit Snacks, what's not to love!
Yummy Earth were the first lollipop that my children had. Around Halloween time a couple of years ago, I started looking into healthier vegan treats for them. I found these and was happy with the ingredients. All the goodies from Yummy Earth are vegan except the Gummy Bears and Gummy Worms.
Yummy Earth uses All Natural Flavors with No High Fructose Corn Syrup and No Artificial Dyes. A couple of weeks ago, we were out of town visiting family and the kids were having rock candy lollipops. My littles didn't miss out, because I pulled these Yum Earth lollipops out of my bag and let them choose one. With all the fun flavors, the other kids wanted to try them too!
We recently tried the Fruit Snacks and the kids loved them! They come in perfect little pouches for a fun treat while out. I keep a couple of bags of the fruit snacks and the lollipops in my back pack for our Amusement Park outings. They are especially great for play dates and party favors!
You can order Yummy Earth Organics online or find them locally at stores such as Whole Foods and Walgreens. Click here link to find a store near you!
