Spring has sprung and with it comes all of the freshness and sweetness of a new season. No one embodies this season’s breath of fresh air more than new mother, and this month’s Guest Editor, Alicia Silverstone. Alicia is enjoying life with baby boy Bear Blue – and the imminent arrival of her latest ‘delivery’ for new moms everywhere! After launching The Kind Life, an online destination all about living well as a vegan and originally based on her book The Kind Diet, Alicia has grown to be an (adorable) advocate for natural living. Alicia is the perfect woman to feature for these first days of spring and a real thrill for us. Not only is she sweetness itself, but Alicia’s glowing, new mommy state makes her the ultimate spring guest! Don’t you agree?
With her new book on healthy motherhood, The Kind Mama, hitting the shelves April 15th, we knew our readers would swoon over this amazing mama and all her ‘kind’ insights. Join us throughout April as we share insights from one of our favorite effortless icons (is there a more quintessential California girl?) and happy new mama. We love Alicia’s message of happy pregnancy and motherhood – we could all use a fresh perspective on one of life’s most perfect jobs. Here’s Alicia…
Dear Chalkboard readers,
Spring is all about rebirth. So, this month, I’m thrilled to be helping so many wellness-minded readers emerge into this new season in glowing health. Whether you’re a new mother or not, it’s so vital to take advantage of everything this time of abundant renewal has to offer. Throughout the next few weeks, we’ll be exploring a few of my favorite ways to stay healthy and happy – and talk about my new book, The Kind Mama!
I’ve been anticipating this book’s release for months. Over the course of my own pregnancy, it was a thrill to craft all of the goodness inside The Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, a Radiant Pregnancy, a Sweeter Birth, and a Healthier, More Beautiful Beginning for other mamas everywhere. Based on a wide array of expert insights, my own experiences and those of the women I respect most, this book is for every woman who believes that mamahood can be everything we dream it to be! It’s my sincerest hope that this book will help you find your way into a super-vibrant, soul-satisfying pregnancy, birth, and motherhood.
The Kind Mama is all about reclaiming the process and experience of bringing children into the world. Guess what? Moherhood can be beautiful, calm, empowering and healthy all at once! Whether you’re planning on bringing a scrumptious new baby into the world right now or not, there is room for all of us to improve the way we’re looking at the world and the care with which we’re building this world for those who aren’t even here yet. That’s what living the Kind Life is all about.
I invite you to join me throughout April as we chat about shopping the farmer’s market, stocking your kitchen, and some fantastically fun bits from inside the pages of The Kind Mama. As we continue to make this planet a better place for those around us, remember along the way to be kind to you! Here’s to a lovely season of fresh new life together, this spring and beyond…
