Welcome to Mama Bear Feeds Family: A Vegetarian Food Blog.

Hi! I’m Alyssa, the author and creator of Mama Bear Feeds Family. The recipes on this site are created to satisfy all members of your family in a timely, affordable way. I believe vegetarian food can be flavorful, fun, affordable and fast. I am a mom of two young kids and totally understand the time crunch that can come with trying to get dinners on the table before bath, bed and any potential meltdowns. Keep reading to find out more about me.

Me and my husband, Mike.

I started this blog in July 2020 after needing a creative outlet for my meal ideas. My oldest son started using the notebook that I write my recipes in as his own “grocery list” and I decided they needed a more permanent home that can’t be colored on. I have been a “full-time” vegetarian since 2017, and really enjoy trying new ingredients that I haven’t had before or in a different format (but really, have you tried air fryer tofu). I still have a lot of trial and error, but thankfully I have a lovely husband and two boys who are always willing to be my testers.

Throughout this blog, you’ll find dinner ideas, healthy baked goods, simple breakfasts, and some tips and tricks I’ve learned about meal planning and prepping over the years. If you have any questions, suggestions, or recipes you are interested in seeing, please feel free to contact me!
