What is crunchy? I’ve gotten this question a ton since I began this blog. I was pleasantly surprised to find a great definition from the online Urban Dictionary.
An adjective describing persons or things relating to any or all of the following: vegetarianism; herbs; all-natural and organic products (such as food, skin and hair care products, etc.); recycling; protecting and preserving the environment; natural medicine; etc. People that are earthy-crunchy are sometimes called tree-huggers or hippies.
And Crunchy Mama is defined:
Mother who supports homebirth, breastfeeding, baby wearing, cloth diapering, co-sleeping, gentle discipline, etc. One who questions established medical authority; tends to be vegetarian and/or prepare all-organic foods.
If you would have told me in high school that I would become a “hippie” I would have laughed in your face! In fact it took me until my third child to become this way and I still don’t consider myself all the way there. I am excited to explore all the ways to be crunchy through this blog!
Are you a Crunchy Mama? If so, would you like to be featured on this blog?
