I am a full time teacher, wife, and mother to my two beautiful daughters. I am dedicated to a life of healthy living and teaching my children healthy living as well.
After having children and dealing with the stress of working full time, our family got into the routine of eating whatever was cheap, quick, and convenient. Unfortunately, over the years that really took a toll on our health. Facing a pre-diabetic condition, dangerously high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity we needed to change everything about the way we lived our lives.
We knew that making the changes would be difficult, but we wanted to make the changes immediately while our girls were still young enough that we could grow healthy habits with them. Through the journey, I have eliminated all of my medical issues and lost 155 pounds.
About six months into our lifestyle change, our youngest daughter was diagnosed with a gluten and milk allergy. This, once again, changed our eating habits for the better and we began a gluten/milk free journey. Although the rest of the family is not entirely gluten/milk free many of my recipes are. I try very hard to make sure that my daughter gets the same opportunity to enjoy her favorite foods.
All of the gluten/milk free recipes are ones that I make with my daughter specifically in mind so many of them are typical kid-friendly foods. She is a typical 7 year old picky eater. This recipe blog has a mix of recipes that have helped me on my journey to health and recipes that I make special for my daughters.
I hope you enjoy them as much as we have 🙂
