Mom at home scientist

Ecology of my motherhood; analyzed, frugal, and (mostly) natural.

Laundry, re-invented..

1 Comment

 I found all of my sorted & folded laundry piles thoughtfully… “refolded” and shoved into a laundry bag… I love my two year old but he is not quite a labor-saving device yet. Another setback to spending time learning about blogging.

Projects touched so far this morning… 1. I made some wonderful fermented oatmeal porridge for breakfast, per Nourishing Traditions cookbook, and refilled the jar. I have a food intolerance that bothers me if I eat grain and dairy products within 6 hours of each other, but fermenting the oatmeal makes it more digestable and the nutrients more bioavailable as it neutralizes phytates. It’s 3pm now so I better redirect my attention to dinner instead of on finishing the stuffed animals for my 4 month old for Christmas.

Author: Jenn

A busy at home scientist and mom with hypothyroid Hashimoto's, Jenn tries to make the best decisions for her family based on science, frugality, religion, health, sustainability and time management (not necessarily in that order). She occasionally writes poetry or goes ballroom dancing. Jenn regularly attends both church and mass. She also has a zoology degree from one of the most prestigious science universities in the country, more research experience than many PhD grads and a love-hate relationship with toxicology. Jenn cloth diapers mostly, but practices "elimination communication" as well. She has lived in three countries and speaks several languages. Jenn also sews, cooks, bakes, gardens, spins (wool) and loves calculus, even though she may be a bit rusty at it by now. With many food intolerances in her family, Jenn is constantly looking at dietary bypasses and evaluating food choices taking into account her education in metabolism, cell and molecular biology and biochemistry. To add to the complexity, she has started following the Auto-Immune Protocol (AIP), which is for healing the gut and putting auto-immune disease into remission.
