Butter doesn’t scare me – here’s why

Butter doesnt scare me www.thatswhatieat.com

This is a post that I have been hinting at for a long time, but have hesitated to actually sit down and write. This is one topic that people for some reason get edgy about, like I’m poking at your dogma and asking you to step into a whole new belief system. And really, when it comes down to it, I am!

And what is that belief that I’m telling you isn’t true? Hold on to your hats, here we go:

Giveaway!!! Meal planning made simple with eMeals

You may have heard this story before, but when Marquis and I were dating and had started talking about possibly getting married, I decided I needed to show him that it was possible for me to be domestic, and I invited him over for a home cooked meal. The problem? I was the queen of mac’n’cheese from the blue box and could microwave a killer bag of popcorn, but that was about the extent of my cooking skills. That night, to show off my amazing abilities, I tried to cook him some chicken drumsticks covered with BBQ sauce, some frozen rolls, and some steam in the bag broccoli. The chicken was

Food Revolution Ambassador


This journey has been absolutely amazing. For the past three years I feel like I have been led by the hand, step by step, to where I need to be. I have been led to the people, books, blogs, information, and tools I needed to to completely change my life. I have then been led to an amazing school where I have enjoyed every moment, I have learned so much, and grown even more into the person that I want to be. Step by step I have had a passion ignited in my soul, first a generalized passion for all things heath and wellness, and now that passion is being honed.

Of course, I want to help everyone. But as I get further into this journey, I have naturally been drawn to

Can you have both health and happiness?

Is it possible? Can you have both health and happiness?

A recent conversation with a stranger:

Them: “So, what do you do?”

Me: “I’m a health coach. I specialize in helping busy moms feed their families healthy, quick meals and live healthy lifestyles.”

Them, laughing: “Oh, I tried being healthy once. It was the worst day of my life! Everyone is going to die sooner or later, and I’d rather die young and happy than old and healthy.”

I’d rather die happy than healthy.

I’ve heard this sentiment more than once. There is a HUGE misconception

Weekly school lunch roundup

Real Food School Lunch Ideas from www.thatswhatieat.com

So how is the school year treating you so far? It has been about a month for us now, and we are really getting into a routine. Thank goodness! Our whole house just functions so much better when we have a routine! That does mean that we appear to be getting into a bit of a rut, so I think I’ll have to start getting more creative soon. Or maybe not.

This week also includes a lot of turkey. In preparation for some upcoming fun stuff

Pizzeria Limone Restaurant Review

Are you one of my local Utah peeps? Are you looking for something just a little out of the ordinary this weekend? Now, this place isn’t totally Real Food because of the white crust, but since we don’t go out to eat often, we don’t mind bending the rules a bit from time to time. And then we go eat some white flour crust on a pizza at a delicious place like Pizzeria Limone.

How to get great deals on great food – Green Polka Dot Box

As I’ve helped people transition to a Real Food lifestyle, one question that I get asked over and over is about where I shop. How do I find these elusive Real Foods, and how can I afford them when I find them? How can I find great deals on great food, without spending hours and hours? I can tell you it hasn’t been easy, especially not at first. Our normal weekly grocery shopping had us going to three or four different stores, along with a stop on the weekend to pick up our co-op basket, or to run to a farmer’s market or other fruit/vegetable stand nearby. We now have our new preferred products that we know contain the ingredients we want, but we have spent a lot of time standing in grocery store aisles reading labels. Grocery shopping is not a chore that I have ever enjoyed, and the change in our lifestyle certainly didn’t make it any easier.

Have I got you depressed yet? Never fear, I have a solution for you!

I’m so excited to announce my new affiliate partner, Green Polka Dot Box. Imagine just for a second that your pantry is looking a bit bare, so you
