Health

I like trying to live a healthy lifestyle where food is my medicine, natural supplements are used to boost health, and stress is kept to a minimum. I also love doing in depth research to really learn how and why things are the way they are.

Our Bodies

There is a lot of information (and misinformation) out there about the “perfect diet”. We have found great health benefits in following many of the Weston Price philosophies along with many others, but I wanted to really explore the biology and the chemistry behind how food works in our bodies.

Fats

There is a big misconception that saturated fat and cholesterol are bad for us, but that is simply not true! Saturated fats are actually the best kind! Trans fats are the fats that should be vilified. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are good in small amounts, but too many will make you fat!

Food Science

When exploring which foods are good, which foods are bad, and which foods are in between, there is a deeper level of understanding that can get technical, scientific, and hard to understand. In these articles, I hope to make the science understandable, accessible, and applicable to our lives as we explore the foods we should be eating.

Supplements

Even when we try to eat the healthiest diet possible, it still might not be enough to reverse the damage that has been done. Natural supplements can help to speed up recovery or provide the best platform for future health. You can get carried away and spend WAY too much money here, so it’s best to prioritize what is within your budget.

Pharmaceuticals

Pharmaceutical companies are billion dollar corporations out to make a profit. Because they are publicly traded, their number one priority is to make a money, not to help mankind. And while there may instances where these drugs are useful, they are pushed on to consumers way too often. We need to be aware and beware.

I am passionate about teaching my children, feeding them healthy food, learning the truth about things (not just what is popular opinion or counter culture), and sharing what I’ve learned and experienced with others. Thanks for stopping by!

ABC Flashcards

These ABC flashcards are great for teaching children the letter name, letter sound, and word associated with each letter all at once using simple hand drawn images and lettering that is very engaging for children.
