Welcome!

Hi, I’m Lauren from ExplorerMomma.com!

I’m Mom to a fun-loving 10-year-old girl and a dinosaur and squid obsessed 6-year-old boy. As a former French teacher and Peace Corps volunteer, I love to read, cook, and learn about other cultures – foods, languages, history, people. I get so excited to share the traditions of different places with my kids and travel whenever possible. I’m also a bit obsessed with real foods, cutting out sugar, and low carb eating.

What will you find here?

You’ll see resources for low carb and keto recipes perfect for families, mom and family travel, books, learning, and fun!
