This year is one for the books.

It’s been a day or two (or twenty) since I have had to chance to write! I began school to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and it seems that every spare minute I have is going to reading, watching class, or doing assignments. My nose has been stuffed in books for a month and there…

There Is No Such Thing As Ready

“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.” Now is the only time…

Are Good Vitamins Worth the Price?

I wrote this up this morning for my Winter Workout and nutrition Group. All about vitamins and how to chose a good one! Happy Friday, Ladies! I hope you are all gaining from this group! If there is anything that you are wanting to know that I have not address, just let me know! Today…

Carbs are so last season (or are they)?!

In a world where there is a new, latest, greatest diet plan around every corner it is hard to decipher what really works and what is just a scam. I have put together my opinion of a few ‘diets’ for you all. Whole 30: The whole 30 is designed to be a 30 day nutrition…

Calorie Content Vs. Nutrient Density

I was just speaking with a client last night about seeing the difference in calories vs. nutrients. As Americans, we generally have the most diets and ‘eat me i’m low calorie’ foods in our lives (We also have the most processed food, junk food, and fast food. But that is a whole other blog post)….

Give me all the Water!

I get asked a lot what is an easy way to up health levels, energy levels, and mood. My quick answer is always: DRINK MORE WATER! I see a lot of women in the gym, in fitness groups, or just in general that are asking and thinking of ways to get more in. Drinking atleast…

Start Now

As summer begins to wind down, it is easy to slip into a lazier routine for a lot of people. Fall is in the air, baking is a go to activity, the gym is almost empty this time of year, and the ‘Jan. 1st I will begin again’ is too close for comfort. Keep going….

A little Fitness Update

It has been awhile since I have talked to you all about fitness. I feel like I started this blog to talk about fitness and it has gone in the direction of nutrition, mom life, farm life, and adventuring! Which, by the way, I am totally ok with since that is my life. But I…

Can I feed my 2 month old Ice Cream?!

I recently joined a ‘stay at home mom’ group on Facebook and wow have my eyes been opened! I guess I thought the rest of the world of moms had the same schedule, opinions, and household set up as me. I also like to believe that children are all playing outside, growing gardens, eating dirt,…

How to find a healthy meal (almost) anywhere

Eating out 101. How to eat healthy. How to avoid the temptation. How to feel like you splurged without actually ingesting multiple fried foods. My husband and I do not eat out often but when we do I like to try and keep my meals and our daughters fairly healthy. Now don’t get me wrong,…

Tasty July 4th Treats

Part of being a farm wife is helping out whenever the need arises. The past three weeks we have been harvesting wheat and my job is to deliver meals to the field twice a day. All meals must be able to be eaten while driving a combine/semi/tractor.We just finished up on Saturday and needless to…

Gaining Wellness

If I could just go out and see that every person knows how great it feels to be healthy and eat real food, I would. If I could help every obese child take their lives back, I would. If I could talk to each person with asthma and tell them that steroids are not a…
