Wholefoods for Busy People

About 10 years ago, Adam and I went through a complete diet change.

We started reading a whole bunch of books talking about wholefoods and getting back to nature – Traditional Foods…. and it all made sense.

I was having health issues and the doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with me… it was probably just a side effect of what I was eating. So I decided to ditch the “Healthy Foods” and search for Real Food.

We started making everything from scratch and we felt amazing!! But then we became parents and life got CRAZY! read more

Are you Freezing?

What’s Your Metabolism Telling You?

I used to be cold All.The.Time. My hands and feet would be freezing and ice to the touch. I would have to carry a sweater around with me even in the summer because I couldn’t tolerate the cold in restaurants. This is not a healthy sign. What’s your metabolism telling you?

Your metabolism is your inner fuel burner. It is a pretty smart mechanism that will adjust based on how much it needs to burn or if it needs to reserve energy.  When you are eating the right about of calories and nutrients, your metabolism will be a fire house. However, if you start to reduce your calories or eat low nutrient foods, your metabolism will dial back and slow down. Think about a bear going into hibernation. The bear’s metabolism slows way down to conserve all the energy to make it through the winter. We don’t want to be a bear in hibernation. read more

Happy New Years!

It’s the start of a new year. The time to reflect on what has happened the last 365 days for better or for worse.

Happy new year

I am trying to slowly come out of the morning sickness fog and focus on growing a little person now.

So for that one goal this year: To have a healthy pregnancy and baby… I have a few sub goals that I will try to follow.

1) Take my Cod liver oil everyday.

41cc7jSpB9L._SL500_AA300_Pregnant women are supposed to have 1.5 teaspoons a day. I have been trying to down the chocolate gel that Aidalyn loves so much, but sadly it has come up far to many times. I just ordered capsules from Green Pastures that are butter blend/cod liver oil. That should help with Vitamins A and D. read more
