Today, on Live Simply, The Podcast, I’m continuing my conversation with Renee from the blog, Raising Generation Nourished and the author of the popular real food cookbook, Nourished Beginnings. Renee is a mom to 3 girls and has a passion for helping mothers, fathers, and caregivers raise a nourished generation.
In today’s podcast episode, Renee shares what real food looks like for her family, her balanced and practical approach to planning and putting real food meals on the table, and ways to get your kids involved in the kitchen–including age-appropriate ideas.

As I mentioned in episode 14, Renee and I talked for almost 3 hours during this interview. In order to keep this interview bite-sized, but also not cut out any of Renee’s incredible insight and encouragement, I’ve decided to divide our chat into a 3-part series. In the next episode, the final part of my interview with Renee, we’ll talk about simplifying school mornings with a breakfast routine, breakfast ideas for busy school mornings, packing a real food school lunch, and she’ll answer your questions.
Q1: What does a real food lifestyle look like for your family in real life?
Q2: You’re a busy momma. How do you make real food work among the chaos of mommy-hood?
Q3: Your kiddos help you a lot in the kitchen, and they started helping at a young age. How did you get them involved and also excited to help prepare meals?
Q4: Can you give us ideas of age-appropriate ways kids can help in the kitchen, from young children to older kids?
Q5: What resources have helped you the most on your real food journey? (Taught you how to cook, challenged your ideas about food, or inspired you to make changes, etc?)
Thank you so much for this series with Renee! My daughter also goes to a Montessori where I am co-chair of the green committee. I can’t wait to share these tips and knowledge with the community through the committee (and of course heavily mention your blog where it all comes from). Looking forward to the next one!
I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series, Tamara! Talking with Renee was such an encouragement and joy. To date, it’s my favorite podcast episodes! And I’m excited for you to share the tips with your community…yay!!!
