I am currently a domestic engineer as my two daughters are in school full time. I have many key roles in this position, mom, mommy, mother, driver, cleaning lady, scheduler, activity and event planner, laundry magician, boo boo fixer, fixer of all problems, and most importantly or my favorite head whisk holder and chef! We are a very active on the go family. My husband likes to run, and it has now become a family activity we can all do together, well the fun runs anyways maybe someday we will join him on a marathon or half marathon. Our daughters fill their time with soccer (traveling and rec leagues), volleyball, gymnastics, and running. I cross-train (love HIIT), fell in love with PIYO last year (never was a fan of yoga until PIYO) and we all enjoy outdoors activities like hiking, camping, kayaking, and snow activities as a family
I was going to start this blog years ago being urged by friends to do so (I even had the name picked out) but chickened out having no experience with these things. The urges were the result of me being asked for recipes over and over for pictures of food I would post. Pictures which were originally destined to be in a cookbook for my girls and like many things, eventually found their way to social media. In 2012 I decided to go down the life path of “clean eating”; trying to be the best me I could be by working out more and fueling my body right. Along this journey still wanting to do what I love (cook and bake) I found it both challenging and fun to come up with new ideas and recipes. So in 2013 I started this blog to share this passion of mine, showing others that eating healthy can be fun!
Now that you know a little about me, let me tell you a little about what you will find on my blog…
I am committed to two things, being true to who I am (which is why you will see many different recipes past and present as my and my families needs change and or evolve) and having fun! Cooking just isn’t about food; it is the fuel our body needs. It’s fun, delicious, there is emotion, and so many more things than just the food. My daughters are my biggest inspiration and they love to help me in the kitchen. They love it when their food is fun or “fancy” and I want to make sure they’re eating healthy. Of course everything is good in moderation and everyone needs balance. So this blog will be a mix of all different types of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks. It will be everything from healthy shakes and smoothies (which we drink a lot of), raw whole foods, elaborate “fancy” meals, simple meals, desserts, and kids meals and snacks. As I said everything needs balance and everything in moderation so while most of the foods here will be healthy, you ABSOLUTELY WILL find indulging over the top desserts and treats as well!
Eat well, play hard!
