My Best Mom Hack!
Hey there! I’m so glad you found this page! I’m Kayleigh Rose, and you’ve landed on my mommy blog, The Pigeon and the Peacock. I know, it’s a funny name for a mom blog! But if I had a spirit animal, I’d choose the peacock. I love their colours, their boldness and their perfectly pulled together style. Traditionally, they have also been a symbol for wisdom and spiritual insight (their plumage looking like many eyes). As a mom, I need all the insight I can get!
But being a mom to two little ones close in age, most days I feel more like a scatterbrained pigeon. Can you relate?
I’m going to guess that you can… and that’s why you’re curious about what my “Best Mom Hack” could possibly be!
What’s something you, as a mom, have to do multiple times a day for yourself and for your family members? And even though it’s an ordinary everyday thing, it can cause a lot of stress, guilt, mess, and extra fuss?
Breakfast, lunch dinner. And then there’s the snacks, snacks, SNACKS!
Can I suggest another option you can include in your meal prep, healthy snacking, grocery planning tool kit? Not too long ago I was a scatterbrained, high anxiety mom, and my “meal planning” more often than not meant another frozen lasagna or the donair shop down the street.
It wasn’t good for our budget. It wasn’t good for our health. And it definitely wasn’t helping with my overwhelming mom guilt. (If you’ve ever experienced postpartum anxiety, you know exactly what I’m talking about). That’s when a friend introduced me to Thrive Life foods, an online grocery store specializing in top notch freeze drying.
And yes, I can work it into my monthly food budget, and even save money in the process. I love the food so much, I decided to become an Independent Consultant with Thrive Life so I could get compensated for sharing it!
But my goal isn’t to just “sell” something to you. That’s not fair, or all that genuine (and I want this blog to feel like a safe place). You’re a real human being, with a budget and a busy life. You want to see how this could work for you. I’ve helped hundreds of families work this food into their eating and snacking routines, so I promise you it’s legit.
#BESTMOMHACK Blog & Video Series
I’ve put together a series of videos and blog posts to show you the food in action. My video editing skills aren’t going to wow you (and my hair is a mess!) but it will hopefully give you an up close and better understanding of this delicious, versatile food. I’ll show you how it’s:

Not only is it “fresher than fresh,” their quality control process is top notch. Having had a behind the scenes facility tour, I can vouch for the incredible tech and process that goes into making this the best freeze dried food in North America (and possibly the planet!)
We all have long days. Now you can make dinner for the whole family in 10 minutes, without planning anything in advance or pulling out a bunch of fancy cooking tools!
(Let’s pretend that’s a real word, k?)
Buh bye brown broccoli. See ya slimey strawberries… this food won’t spoil on you!!! And by throwing out less food and eating out less, it’s kinder on your wallet too.
