A Little

About Me


I thrive off of blue bird powder ski days, long days in the backcountry hiking and climbing, salty sprays of turquoise waters, lots of sunshine, living and laughing with family and friends, creating in the kitchen, and photographing beautiful food. I believe Brussel sprouts should be their own food group, floral arrangements make everything better, and that life is worth celebrating because Jesus is my first love.

My

Story

PALEO & HEALTH JOURNEY

For nearly three years, I have been committed to the paleo lifestyle and I can confidently say, that I can’t remember the last time I craved something I couldn’t eat. I was turned onto the paleo diet at the beginning of my battle with chronic illness. At the age of sixteen, I was diagnosed with mono, adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, leaky gut, two blood disorders (thalassemia and pernicious anemia), and a pile of allergies, and Hashimoto’s Disease.

I went from being extremely active, full of life, on the run, and working out, to feeling like a 100 year old woman; unable to walk or lift a glass of water. I spent years on bed rest as a teenager and young adult. As well as in and out of waaayy too many doctor offices and a myriad of natural health care practitioners. Eating paleo has supported my body and given me freedom to create as my body continues to heal. I feel my optimum best when I am eating whole foods that nourish my body and balancing that with as much exercise as my body will handle. I want everyone to feel their optimum best! I am on a mission to spread health and a joyful lifestyle through whole foods and the paleo diet.

PHILOSOPHY

I love creating. I love healthy nourishing whole foods. I love the feel of my camera in my hand. I love food. I love the feeling of kneading soft dough with floury hands and aroma of warm yeast rising in the air. Cultivating an atmosphere that captivates and inspires the soul, nourishes the body, and brings joy into the room is my passion.

I started this blog out of my desire to share healthy food that actually tastes “real”. Eating with allergens and thriving on the paleo diet doesn’t mean bland, boring, and time consuming! I love to cook, but I’m also practical! I love quick and easy recipes that taste delicious. I want you to eat food that you are excited about while eating healthy, feeling great, fueling your body with nutrients, and loosing weight. Sound good?

I hope you enjoy some yummy food and have fun along the way! Happy cooking from my kitchen to yours:)

Lots of love,

A few things you should know about me if we are going to be friends:

1. You can win my heart with superfoods; mainly goji berries and mulberries. I once received multiple packages of these berries for Christmas; da best!

2. I actually hated cooking before I was paleo. Mom was legitimately worried that I would leave home never knowing how to cook. So she made me make dinner once a week, hoping that I would at least have something to survive on other than my ritual salads and toast… Things have changed since then 😉

3. Rooibos tea and steamed almond milk is my jam!

4. I have a untamable obsession for beautiful ceramics and artisan home goods (making prop shopping a valued task on the to-do list 😉

5. Never did I image I would have a blog much-less, publish an ebook, and be a blog consultant!! Let’s just say that I was the exact opposite of a techie… and wanted nothing to do with electronics and social media before I started all this. I didn’t have Instagram until I started my business and I am an introvert, so this whole spilling my life to the cyber world is pretty much completely out of my comfort zone and something I have had to work up to.

Well my friend, if you made it this far, let me say welcome to my little corner of the internet! I am overjoyed to have you here!! I hope you find this space to be joyful, hopeful, and full of fun things to eat. Let’s stay connected; there are a few ways you can do this:
