Saving Time in the Kitchen – With (or Without) a Newborn

A Newborn.

Sweet smells, cuddles, sitting, rocking, nursing. And sitting some more.

A wonder lies in your arms. You’ve been waiting for this moment. It should all be bliss, but the rest of life goes on.

No… you get the picture. And if you have children, you know exactly what I mean. You want all of your time to be devoted to this precious new life, but the laundry, cleaning and the rest of your family still needs you and your attention.

Well, whether or not you have a newborn, if you are like me, you need to save time in the kitchen.

Not that I don’t love cooking, mind you, but sometimes I’d just like to be done with it a little faster.

And for those of us trying to eat foods more and more the way that God created them (i.e. not boxed and pre-packaged), every little time-saving strategy helps us achieve our goals.

Well, to help you out, I’ve put together some ideas to help you.

Head on over to Modern Alternative Mama and see some of my best time-saving kitchen tips.

I hope when you’re done you’ll be out of the kitchen quicker and onto other good things in life!

Please come on back here after reading my post and let me know what you think or if you have any questions. 

I can’t interact with readers over there, but I sure would love to hear your thoughts!
