Do you ever feel like you need to get healthier, but there’s so much information (and MISinformation!) out there that you don’t know where to begin? Have you ever looked up ideas about healthy living on Pinterest or on Google but felt like there is no way that eating like that or buying that food would be reasonable or cost effective? Ever seen health tips from fitness coaches or Instagram models, but found yourself having trouble relating because your bills are due, your kids are making a mess and by the time it comes to making dinner you just can’t.

If you answered yes to any or ALL of these questions then you are just like me!

About Me

For most of my life I neglected my health and personal wellness. I ate food that was not good for me, I didn’t take care of my mental wellness, and as a consequence I suffered from chronic illnesses and mysterious unpleasant symptoms. It was clear I was a yo-yo dieter that would binge eat my feelings and look for the nearest quick fix that wouldn’t require me to actually make a lasting change. I wanted to be healthier and eat better, but had no idea how to make that happen.

More specifically- I felt like I didn’t have the time, energy or cooking skills to make it happen.

After my second baby I made the plunge to stop dieting, and get myself really, truly healthy. I achieved this by clean eating, and walking with the stroller. This laid the foundation for me to get my mind right. During this process I lost 70 lbs and felt better than I had since I was a little kid!

It was during this process that I learned you don’t need any extra money, spare time (that exists?!) or cooking skills to start eating healthy. I want to share the approaches that helped turn me from hot mess mom covered in pizza sauce to hot mess mom covered in avocado toast crumbs!

If you are in this boat, and find health information as confusing and overwhelming as I did then we have got to become friends! My intention is to show people who think that eating clean will be too hard, too time consuming or too expensive just how easy it can be!

Health and wellness should be easy, affordable and accessible to all of us with wild and hectic lifestyles!

I now have 3 kids and am on the path once more to becoming my best healthiest self. I want to share with you how easy it is to eat clean, while also trying to live a “greener” lifestyle. If you are hopeless with recipes like me, I want to show you that by doing a little prepping and planning, as well as stocking yourself a “just the basics” pantry, you will have everything you need to maintain a simple fuss-free lifestyle change. You can easily eat healthy while reducing food waste and saving money.

I am a regular gal with screaming kids, things to do and a lazy as hell disposition, so if I can do it SO CAN YOU!!
