Ayurveda is an ancient Indian holistic system of health and wellbeing.

Hi! I’m Kayla the creator of Mammananda, a community for holistically minded mammas who believe in the power of real foods, plant based medicine, attachment parenting and conscious living. “What the heck is a mammananda?” you might be asking yourself. Well. Ananda is a beautiful Sanskrit term meaning bliss, joy or a state of extreme happiness. There have been many happy occurrences throughout my life but by far the most joyous of these is becoming a mamma. Looking at my son and realizing that I am his and he is mine is truly the most blissful I have ever felt. And thus the name was born!
As a new wife and mother it is super important to me to find the most natural, organic ways of nourishing my family. It is not always easy and I don’t have all the answers but I would love for my fellow “crunchy” mammas to embark on this journey and learn along with me. We have the power to create a state of good health. We can choose clean organic food and nature based medicine. We can raise our children to know how to live in harmony with themselves and the world around them. We can help the next generation to become more conscious and change our world for the better. My hope is that this site will provide you with healthy recipes, lifestyle, and parenting tips that can make that goal seem a little more reachable. Every day is a chance to learn more and create the kind of world we are proud to pass on to our children.
Thanks for stopping by and I can’t wait to get to know you as you join me and my family on the path to wholeness!
