About Us

We were first-time moms in the same play group and loved having the support of other mamas. Over the years, our lives got busier and we moved across country from each other. We had more kids, our days got shorter and more chaotic, and our meals got quicker and less healthy. It got to a place where we both felt like all the energy had been sucked out of our bodies, yet we still had to get up, get dressed, take care of our kids and survive the long day. We needed a lot more energy than our bodies seemed capable of—we were experiencing the effects of the Standard American Diet (SAD).

I also decided to pull out my Winter Flu-Buster Secret Weapon this week… Ah Clementine’s, the perfect winter fruit to ward off a cold, don’t you think? Eric and I have been eating these juicy little delights non-stop, but when he started to feel like he was getting a fever, all he wanted was something COLD to soothe his throat and help his body cool down.

I mean, just yesterday we had a very deep conversation about oil pulling as I was walking through the produce section at Costco. No one gave me weird looks at all… But amongst the thousands of recipes out there using coconut oil, I think I have discovered a new favorite. It began with a craving for biscuits, and a bag of self-rising flour that I needed to use up, and an old 3-ingredient recipe that used to call for shortening. Nowadays, anytime I see shortening, it’s like the recipe is just begging me to try substituting in some coconut oil to see if it works.
