Profile Picture of First Time Mommy

I started First Time Mommy in July 2013 to share my pregnancy and parenting journey with other first time mothers. My blog is a one-stop blog for wellness tips for pregnancy to lessons on gentle and positive parenting and nutrition and health tips for both mother and kid.

However, along the journey, I realized I was much more than a blogger.

It all started 5 years ago with my daughter asking for chocolate cookies at a mall.

I told her, “Let me make it for you at home. It would be better for you than store bought cookies.”

That day, I took a stand. No Processed Foods at HOME. I started making ladoos and halwas, baking cakes and cookies, making fresh fruit jams and pasta sauces for my family.

It’s been more than 5 years since I embarked on my healthy journey, and it’s been very soul-satisfying. This led to the germination of The Soul Kitchen.

The Soul Kitchen offers traditional, healthy and nutrient rich foods for a soul satisfying and guilt-free experience. I use local superfoods to create a variety of convenient snacking options for active kids and adults alike.

You can now buy traditionally made Homemade Products from The Soul Kitchen. Your order will be delivered at your doorstep, free of charge. Follow @thesoulkitch either on Instagram or Facebook.

I am not saying it’s the BEST, but my traditional handmade offerings are Better For You and Your Family as they are the same ladoos that I give in my daughter’s tiffin box too.

I also do product reviews, and have so far reviewed products for Tanishq, Kellogs, Eureka Forbes, Dr. Fixit, Baby First, Photojaanic, Chu Chu TV, Perfico, BumChum Diapers, Adlabs Imagica, Johnson’s, Casio, Dettol, etc.

I am also a fiction writer who loves reading, especially murder mysteries. No prizes then for guessing that Agatha Christie is my all-time favorite. Recently, I launched my eBook Tara on Amazon which was well received by readers. Do check out my other blog if you want to read some great fiction – https://anshubhojnagarwala.wordpress.com/
