Game Changers Meal Prep

Meal prep is everything.  I could end the blog post there.  Full stop.  Period.  However, let me explain further.  As a mother of two amazing kiddos, and the founder of Ecopiggy, LIFE IS FULL!  Meal Prep is a Game Changer for our week and our health.   Taking a few hours on the weekend to plan and prep healthy organic food for the week, ensures that when volleyball practice ends at 5:30 on Tuesday, and we are all starving, a nourishing dinner will only take minutes to heat and enjoy!


Ecopacifiers: a healthy and green alternative

Ecopiggy is one of our very favorite brands. Their pacifiers have been the only ones that my daughter will take since the day she was born! As a mom it is so important to not only buy products that are functional, but also safe! When you buy Ecopiggy, you are buying something that is 100% natural and healthy for your precious little babe! From the amazing products to the wonderful customer service, I cannot recommend this brand enough!  [Kenzie S.]


Oatmeal: Culinary Blank Canvas

Oatmeal serves as the perfect base in which to bring out your inner artist – don’t you think? Recently, I’ve been inspired by the array of sweet and savory combinations of dishes that can be created with so humble and simple of a grain: the oat. Oatmeal is not only nutritious and satisfying, but also a beautiful culinary work of art and an affordable meal year-round. Color, texture and taste can be delicately crafted in endless variations – think miso, sliced radishes, cilantro, a poached farm egg and toasted seeds for a savory explosion. Or a nourishing sweet version like the one our founder, Hayley, brought for the team one morning, filled with playful toppings and infusions like nut butter, cacao powder, currants, and persimmon.


Teething with Ecopiggy!

When my first babe was teething, everyone suggested synthetic medicines to help alleviate the pain, a few well-meaning aunts and uncles suggested a touch of brandy on the gums, but it took my own research to find that there were natural alternatives that are immensely healthier than any of those. When I would bring my son around wearing his Baltic Amber necklace, it became clear to me that hardly anyone had heard of them. Once I started explaining it, about 50% were amazed and wanted to know more, and the other 50% were certain it was a hoax. Well, here I am; teething baby number two, and we’re still sold!
