Calling me a "Crunchy Mama" has never been anything other than true fact. We buy in bulk, carry our BPA-free water bottles everywhere we go, have the most amazing wardrobe of hand-me-downs, we reuse, recycle, upcycle, and compost, I cry on the inside, okay, I actually cry real tears anytime I forget to pack up our reusable tote bags when shopping, and we came way too close to setting up a chicken coop in our yard. We actually love granola (pro tip- add sunflower seeds to your homemade recipe), however, we tend to side more on a chewy consistency than a crunchy blend. Crunchy granola-chomping, free spirits reflect the stereotypical embodiment of "crunchy" living. Either way, we're all about that "crunchy", nature-loving, go green, inner creative, earthy life. I'm a "Crunchy Mom" raising "Crunchy Kids". Know what? You might be "crunchy" if...
