Thanks for coming by and being interested enough to look at the About page. I’m impressed with the intelligence of this readership already.
I am a super busy (like the rest of the world) homeschooling mom of two little boys. In a former life I was too cool for school, but pretty good at it, so I went on to be an Aggie. Whoop!
My degree is in International Studies and History (not food related you say? No, not so much). What do you do with two such spectacular degrees? Well, you could go get some more education, write, or teach – or some combination thereof. I taught 9th grade for awhile. Now, I’m more on an elementary level.
I have always loved food. Unfortunately, I was raised during the fat is bad, carbs are good movement. After, I became a wee bit less active and had my two little nuggets I was supporting a very maternal belly (three years post-partum). Did I mention I’m really good baker? I love baking.
Determining that now was the time to nip all that nonsense in the bud I looked for a way to get my family back on track. Like many, we had previously dabbled in diets (South Beach, Body for Life, etc.) but none of them really clicked in a way that seemed sustainable or life altering. That is what is so attractive about Paleo. First, that it is a lifestyle and not a quick weight-loss plan. Beyond that it just clicked with me. The logic behind it works for my brain.
After dabbling around with Paleo dishes here and there, but still having too much take out, delivery, fast food, and sugar (How has it happened that there is now a sugar-laden holiday every time we finally get rid of the last batch of candy?), the new year rolled around and the hubs and I decided something needed to give. If not it would be the seams in all our clothes. Things were getting tight and pretty uncomfortable. That is when we committed to the Whole 30.
They say it’s life changing because it is. There are things going in I wouldn’t have believed coming out, but so much of what is outlined in the plan is true. Many people transition from Whole 30 to Paleo or Paleo-ish. But, really, it’s just eating good clean food.
It’s also a lot of cooking. This was definitely different cooking than I had previously done on a regular basis. I mean, I always knew how to make dinner, but this is all real clean ingredients all the time. All the time. Even when you’re tired. Even when it’s easier to order Chinese. All the time.
So, this was the birth of the blog. So, much good food. It must be shared!
I thank you for letting me share our food with you and yours. Hopefully, you will enjoy this food journey as much as we have (after detoxing all the crap out of your body…that part is not enjoyable).

I am not a medical and/or health professional and I am sure as heck not qualified to give medical and/or life changing advice (really, if you listened to me you’d probably never see a doctor. I would be like can’t you check that out on WebMD and then find someone selling oils, or something? Nothing against doctors, I don’t even use oils…except to make my vinegar cleaning solution smell like orange scented vinegar…but, I digress. If you have an issue or the online questionnaire has told you you have a rare form of Legionnaire’s disease, but could also be the flu, or a bruise you should go see a doctor, man!) I can only share what works or doesn’t work for me and mine. If you choose to apply anything you read hear to your life, and it doesn’t work out so well, it’s not my fault.
