A BIG WARM WELCOME to those of you who are here for the first time. I’m here with you too, nervous, excited and full of anticipation for what this will become.

So, what is NW Healthy Mama?

Well first, let me introduce myself. I’m Angela, wife to a hard working and patient man and Mama to 3 little ones.  I’m a life long resident of the amazing Washington State and I absolutely never want to leave this place.  I’ve been dreaming about NW Healthy Mama for awhile now and I can’t wait to see this all come to life. I hope this place will be an encouragement to other women, as we become our best, healthy and happy selves.

One day, while vacuuming, the words NW Healthy Mama came to mind. I sort of brushed it off, sure there was already something out there very similar. But, I couldn’t let it go. As I pushed the vacuum around my house, it all started coming to me so fast. We’d talk healthy recipes here, hikes and gardening.  We’d tour inspiring chicken coops and gardens. We’d encourage each other to fully enjoy motherhood and live kind, adventurous, loving and well.

As soon as I turned the vacuum off, I ran to the computer. After searching around, I realized NW Healthy Mama was available and if I wanted to go for this, it could be mine….well ours, because the bigger picture for this space includes many more women than just myself. The biggest blessing is how I’m already seeing the perfect contributors step up to the plate and offer their voices and stories to all of us. Over and over again, I’m blown away with the amazing women in this world. There are far too many fabulous and knowledgeable ladies for me to be the only writer here. I’m very excited to share this space with many other contributors!

NW Healthy Mama is a collection of all things beautiful and Pacific Northwest, paired with a passion for all things healthy and active.

Here at NW Healthy Mama, we believe health is not a specific diet, but rather a frame of mind, a meal that helps our families thrive and an adventure outside with good friends. We believe in enjoying motherhood and loving our people well. We believe in living as if life is a gift meant to be enjoyed and maximized.
