Caring for my family often comes in the form of feeding them. Over the past few years, I've become painfully aware of how difficult it is to find high quality food on the shelf of a store. This dilemma pushed me further into my already existing love of cooking, adding a newfound value of better nutrition for the health of myself, my husband, and my kids. An awareness and practice of healthy eating has transformed my relationship with food and how I anchor our daily life around it. I want to help other people have more access to nutritional food for their families to enjoy as well. I want to help people put better food on their table, feel better about what they eat, and show them that healthy eating can also be delicious!
