This blog is for my girls.

I am inspired to write for them, excited to experiment with food, to share stories, to give life lessons, to provide tips on how to… everything. I hope that no matter where they are, they can connect to home here.

Our name, Momtra, is inspired by the Avestan word Montra or Mahantra which means protection or to take refuge under. As moms (and dads) we want our children to feel that they can always find refuge in our arms, in our homes, in our council, in our words and actions.

Note: Montra is not to be confused with the Sanskrit word mantra (mystical syllable or poem).
