For those who are curious...
I just thought it was time for a quick little chat about why I started this blog in the first place. I really have two reasons:
1. As I was creating new recipes and eco-friendly DIY products I knew I wouldn’t be able to remember it all. It was just impossible. Even if wrote it all down in a notebook or in the “cloud” somewhere I knew I would end up losing things and just end up with one big disorganized mess. So, even if I actually took the time to write a recipe down the chances of finding it again would be zip, nada, zero.
2. To be a hope and resource for other people. I’ve been there when you find out the reason why you haven’t been feeling well for so long is because of a food allergy. I’ve been there when you’re first learning what to eat again and something so ordinary like making dinner becomes completely daunting. I know that feeling of feeling like your whole world has been turned upside-down and all because of that certain food(s). And I’ve SO been there with you crying and wishing you could just go to the store and buy a box of cookies (the good ones!). I’ve also been there when for whatever reason your body decides to reject all your cleaning and beauty products and you can’t clean the bathroom or wash your hair without burning eyes and a migraine.
As for the first reason this blog has been a lifesaver! I have been able to keep track of all of the recipes and products we’ve figured out that actually help our bodies rather than hurt them. What I really love is since I’ve been able to document everything with pictures my kids can point to what they want to have again as a meal, snack or treat. So, score!
For the second reason, I hope this is coming true, maybe bit by bit. Just helping people live happier and healthier lives. even if you don’t like some or all of the recipes on here I would hope it still serves as an inspiration. If me, with all my allergies (check out my about page), can find this many things to eat. You can too! Maybe some of these recipes work perfectly maybe others you have to adjust to your liking, but you can do this and you’re not alone. So, I want you to view this blog as one big encouragement that you’re life can be yummy too!
