Lasagna Love. With Rhiannon Menn

Lasagna Love with Rhiannon Menn

Every so often I discover someone online I wish I knew in person, Rhiannon is one of them. I was so intrigued by the kindness movement she started during the 2020 global pandemic that I had to invite her to share the story of Lasagna Love and Be Good to Mama with you. Enjoy!

What We Talked About

  • What inspired Rhiannon to create Lasagna Love
  • How  Montessori aligns with her personal values
  • Her tips and mindset needed to travel with young children
  • Being careful not to lose your identity when you become a parent
  • Why she needed to create Be Good to Mama

Things to Remember

“The information is out there, but the answer is within you.”

“The number one thing about traveling with children is mindset.”

“By taking care of myself first, on the surface, that sounds selfish, but truly it makes me better at taking care of the people around me.”

“I learned not to walk into parenting with expectations, both of myself and of my kids.”

“Your children will be happier with you as a mom who can model for them how to take care of yourself and love yourself and be kind to yourself.”

– Rhiannon Menn

“Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.” – Kahlil Gibran

More About My Guest

Rhiannon Menn is a mama, chef, and adventurer. She loves decaf coffee, traveling, and super fuzzy sweaters – which she, unfortunately, can no longer wear since she left New England.

After the birth of her second child, she had an epiphany: when she took good care of herself, she was much better at taking care of those around her.

She founded Good to Mama as a way of changing the narrative about what it means to be a mom. In 2020 she also founded Lasagna Love: a nonprofit platform that connects neighbors for home-cooked meal delivery.

Rhiannon has been written about in Forbes and Women’s Day Magazine and has appeared on the Today Show, Kelly Clarkson, and Good Morning America. Rhiannon is a graduate of Berkshire Community College, Brown University, and MIT Sloan, and is a Siebel Scholar.

She lives in Kihei, HI with her husband, and three children, and is still relentlessly petitioning for a cat.
