I'm Heather. I am a registered dietitian and mom to three spunky girls who are not so little anymore. I have a passion for teaching families about eating and cooking real foods. That passion grew with each child I had, and, with that, a deeper understanding of feeding a well-nourished family. We aren't perfect eaters over here. Honestly, we battle with a lot of feeding difficulties like food allergies, EoE, autism, and extreme picky eating. We truly are a work-in-progress. I am hoping that I can share with you my own experiences with feeding a family, along with recipes, tips, expert information and (lots of) humor.
On this site, you will find:
Some fun facts about me:
1. My husband Jeff and I have been married for 16 years. We live on an island in Michigan, and no, it isn't very tropical. We love to eat and sharing a meal together is our favorite type of date night.
2. I won't judge your grocery cart. And, I hope you won't judge mine. Like I said, I have three girls. We have autism, food allergies and girls that are on the cusp of becoming teenagers. Sometimes I have junk food in my cart. Some weeks I don't. Balance is truly the key in raising healthy eaters.
3. We really do eat mostly fresh, whole foods. I will walk you through our whole food journey focusing on a Mediterranean lifestyle and how meal planning has saved my sanity. I will also talk a lot about cooking....and getting your kids to help cook those meals.
