Paleo and Real Foodies Mother’s Day Guide –
When I was 3 years old my parents got divorced and it was really sad, but the best thing that happened was that I ended up with two mothers! I am lucky that I have two great women to lead me through life and offer amazing support.
Having two mom’s meant that I had to find two gifts to give each of them on this special day, which was no big deal. Even though I live 3000 miles away from them I still send gifts every Mother’s day. They listen to me too and I have had some nutritional influence over each of them. They both have real food/gluten free success stories that you can read about here and here.
Paleo and Real Foodies Mother’s Day Guide
These are some gifts I am considering for my MOM’s (or myself ) this year. Mother’s day is mid May so mark your calendar and do something nice this year for your hard working Mom.
You don’t need to spend a lot just consider making a bath salt or a green tea mask. Also there is a wonderful grapefruit scrub or face serum. Just spending time with my mom makes her happy. I can take her for a walk or a coffee and she is thrilled. But if your mom wants a little more then consider more tangible options as you scroll down.
Instant Pot Pressure Cooker
This has been on my list for a while, I am die hard crock-pot person but I hear great things from my sister about the instant pot. I think this would take away the fear of a regular pressure cooker as I tend to multi-task and burn things up. This one has all the safety features for the forgetful as well as making yogurt and 30 minute bone broth, oh my! order on Amazon prime here.
Also this one from Fagor is recommended by Nom Nom Paleo and it is 1/2 the price.
Stick/ Hand Blender
This hand blender is absolutely my favorite kitchen tool. I am a connoisseur of soup and this one whips up a creamy bisque in no time. I have tried others but this one packs the power your are looking for. This one also comes with a mini chopper attachment, a whisk for easy mayo and a smoothie cup.
Programmable Slow Cooker
If you do not have a slow cooker yet I do not know how you survive. Even a person like me, who works from home and not in an office, has a constant pot of broth simmering at all times. I love waking up to warm stew or roast when I don’t feel like cooking or washing dishes.
This one from Hamilton Beach is reported to be lead free from several reliable foodie/blogger friends. I don’t have this one yet but I covet it and would be so happy to get it on mother’s day! It has a meat thermometer and set it and forget it timer that stays on warm once your food is cooked. This is a must for a busy Paleo Mom!

I like these ideas for May 12th. Your moms are great people, and these are really good gift ideas. I’m surprised you didn’t recommend a massage! Are there any good magazines you suggest?
