Family food philosophies



Cohesive Home and Streamlined Motherhood

[one_third][/one_third][one_third_last][/one_third_last]

One of the best parts of creating Friendlier has been connecting* with other podcasters. Two of our favorites are Melissa and Kate of Cohesive Home. On their show they share their take on simplicity, minimalism, and living into their families’ values.

We are so excited to share that Kate has now launched Streamlined Motherhood–a podcast that will “guide you back to your intuition, help you dig out from the chaos of life, and start feeling confident again in the amazing mama you are.”

If you need some inspiration or encouragement in parenting and creating the life you want for your family, we recommend giving their shows a listen!

*This time last year, we collaborated on a community episode–check out their episode and ours.

Style and beauty

From hair (we both have so much!) to skin-care (what exactly is a toner anyway?), we share our style and beauty routines and how they have changed over the years. We’d love to hear which aspects of beauty and style are worth the effort for you, and which aren’t. Links featured in this episode:

Eating lately

Sarah put in the effort to make a Greek salad (why is chopping vegetables so hard?!).
