Mom Blogger Interview: Tracey From Don’t Mess with Mama

Today we want you to meet Tracey from Don’t Mess with Mama.

Tell us about your blog.
Don’t Mess with Mama is a blog about parenting, green living, organic and healthy eating, and life as a far-from-perfect mom. She has three boys under the age of eight, and lives in San Diego, California.

Why did you start blogging?
I had been blogging for years to my family and friends about the challenges of raising kids, and finally decided to go public over a year ago. I just felt like I had a voice to share for parents who felt like they weren’t living up to the “perfect parent” standard. I’m the first to admit that I’m far from a perfect parent. But when it comes to the food they eat, I live up to my blog name, Don’t Mess with Mama.

Before having kids, I was relatively healthy. I was a vegetarian and rarely ate fast food, but I didn’t give a second thought about chemicals in food, like artificial dyes and colors, preservatives, and pesticides. I just thought if it was low in fat, then it was healthy.

Then, when my first son was born everything changed. I only wanted him to eat the best food and learned more about the benefits of organic and local, community-supported food. I’m now a huge advocate of organic food – in fact, one of my top priorities as a parent is to give my kids the healthiest food possible.

What are your goals for your blog going forward?
My blog still focuses on parenting challenges and advice, as well as our journey to become a more green family. We’re slowly making changes to be more eco-conscious – from using reusable cloths instead of paper towels to making homemade cleaners to reduce our footprint on the environment.

I also review green products, post recipes, and chronicle our travel adventures. Recently, we spent two months in Hawaii to try to live off the grid a bit and enjoy outdoor activities in the islands. My hope is that sharing our journey to go green and live more simply will inspire others to do the same.
