How to Detoxify your Home: Part Two

Continuing on my DIY healthy home conversion, part two of the detoxification series is dedicated to the next common  home contenders: mattresses and paint. Who would have ever thought that both mattresses and paint leech out so many harmful chemicals into the air? Until a few months ago, certainly not me.

Non-Toxic and Hydrating Skincare for the Entire Family

For anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a total freak when it comes to what goes in or on my body, including my family’s. I’m THAT person who will read the ingredients of our groceries/out to eat and research the materials in everything I buy. This is because all of the crap that goes…

How To Detoxify Your Home: Part One

Now that we’ve been homeowners for a few months…with a tiny human, pups, and pregnant, my brain is been in severe overdrive figuring out ways to detoxify our 100 year old bungalow. As a part of a three part series, I’ll be sharing how we have made progress towards detoxifying our lives and home.

Spiced Paleo Ham

Soon after Liam visited his new school, I got my first holiday pot luck invite as a new suburban mama. Although the new opportunity to make new mommy friends sounded exciting, it was equally daunting. I didn’t know these ladies’ tastes, any allergies to be aware of, or really what to expect for a pot…

Easy Six-Step Sausage Stuffing

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve gotten a chance to write an article. Between moving into a new house, an energetic toddler, and surviving the first trimester of a new pregnancy, mama has been tired. However, now that my appetite and energy is kind of back, I’ve been really into cooking for the fam…

Gluten-Free Pizza Cups

Tying to deal with toddlers’ every changing food preferences and aversions can drive you INSANE. Especially when your kid has food sensitivities/allergies and your options are already limited. After seeing my pizza-burger-wing (anti-Aimee lifestyle) husband continually eat his usuals, an idea popped in my head: introduce pizza to this kid and see how it goes.

Food By FARE

Since converting to an AIP/Paleo lifestyle in 2015, finding honest and healthy food options has always been a struggle for me; And when I say “healthy food,” I don’t just mean a salad, smoothie, or celery juice. I’m talking about fresh, sustainable, and simple ingredient menus – menus not including canola, soy, or any other nasty…

Finding Time to B3 Me

Even before Liam was born (10m ago-omg!), I’ve barely had a minute to myself. For the last couple of years, I’ve been a wife, dog-mom, fitness enthusiast, and friend. However, adding “Mom” to my resume, made the juggling act even harder. I know people say having a kid changes everything, but until you experience it…

Gluten-Free Paleo Biscuits and Gravy

I’m approaching the end of my nursing career (for right now at least), and being hungry all of the time because of the extra caloric requirement is NO JOKE.  I haven’t dropped a feeding until now. My body has been a machine since the day this kid was born. I have to drink a certain…

Gluten-Free and Egg-Free Paleo Sunbutter Cookies

Now that I’m 1.5 months into going back on AIP/elimination for Liam, his skin is 99% improved and his stomach issues are slowly getting better. For all of the doctors we’ve seen and told us to switch to formula or to accept his issues as normal, eff you. Changing your diet and lifestyle has a…
