My passion is to do the best as I can as a mother, teaching my son practical life skills, nourishing his growing body, and showing him how to live a slow, meaningful life. I feel that we have lost ourselves some time ago and need to get back to our roots. The greatest gift we can give to our children is to teach them these traditional skills. Follow along as I navigate motherhood and prepare one wholesome meal at a time.

Mindfullness is a state of mind you can only get to if you slow down.
When I was ready to become a mother, I didn't think it would be so difficult to conceive. I never took birth control, I was eating "healthy" and living a normal life. But after of a year of trying, I decided to go visit a fertility doctor. From that point on, it was a LONG journey and hundreds of shots (and I am terrified of them). I honestly remember signing my life away because I thought this was the only way and I would do whatever it takes to become a mother. After all, having a baby is what is supposed to come naturally to woman, right? After 2 failed IUI's, and being told another round wouldn't work, we decided to do IVF. First round was a success! But the shots didn't end there. I had to continue taking progesterone in oil in my butt muscle until I was 10 weeks pregnant. OUCH those hurt. I ended up having a good pregnancy besides the labor part. But that story is for another time!
Jayden was born May 30, 2020 and when he turned 9 months I got my period. I also thought it was normal to get your period later due to breastfeeding. But I was wrong. So we started trying to conceive our second baby. But months passed and nothing. I was told my body could reset itself after IVF and I can get pregnant naturally or it wouldn't and I would have to do another round. Nine months later, round 2 of IVF. It was a success again and I was shocked. But just a few weeks later, at 8 weeks, I miscarried. It was the worst feeling I ever experienced, something I will never forget. Still brings me to tears every time I think about it.
BUT this event was also LIFE CHANGING. (so thank you little one for changing my life for the better). I was determined to find a way to get pregnant naturally. I just didn't want to go through the IVF process again. It was mentally and physically draining. I just couldn't sign up for it again. So I bought some books on fertility, took a course and immersed myself in this lifestyle change. I changed the way I was eating COMPLETELY. When I say I had to unlearn everything I thought was true, it was exactly that. It was so eye opening to realize how far we have stepped away from simple food. Like when did food have to get so complicated? So I want to share my journey with you in hopes that you learn to properly nourish you and your family so you can fuel your body, love yourself and heal internally.
