About

If someone were to ask me, “What’s the best thing I can do to be healthy?” This is what I would tell them, based on my knowledge as a nutritionist & physical therapist, studying the world’s healthiest people, 23 years of my own health journey, and most importantly, my desire to help my 3 children eat healthy in an unhealthy world:

“One of the best things you can do for your health is to shop for, cook, and eat real food, made simply from scratch, several times per week.”

That’s what this blog is about.

How I got here:

I started this blog to share with whomever is interested how I shop for, cook and eat healthy in an unhealthy world for myself, and my family, including my 3 children.  I’m also interested in sustainable farming, gardening, reading about food trends and all things food, including cooking from scratch, gardening, baking bread, fermenting, pickling ,and canning.
