Hello!

My name is Carrie and I’m so glad you found my site!

This blog is my place to share my personal experiences as I try to raise healthy kids in a not-always healthy world, as well as nutrition and wellness information that I have found useful as a mom.

Here, you will find: realistic nutrition advice, recipes, tips for what works and what doesn’t when it comes to raising a healthy family, and much more!
