Hi! I'm Rachael. I'm a wife to one hunk, and a mama to six awesome kids. I grew up outside of Memphis, Tennessee and now live in Utah.
After having my last two children, my body took a dive. My hormones were never balanced, I couldn't lose weight (in fact, I gained some), I had very little energy, I was tired all the time except when it was time to sleep and then I couldn't , and my body constantly ached, like I had the flu. I went to several doctors to figure out why I just did not feel like myself. Some would blame it on the fact I was a mother of six, others prescribed hormones supplements which did not work, and others put me on an anti-depressants that I took for way too long before realizing they were making things worse.
Through an instagram feed I was introduced to the paleo world and the Whole30 program. After reading the book, It Starts With Food, and completing my first whole30 in December of 2014, I became a firm believer in the power of healthy food to heal and fuel your body.
Thanks to a healthy, mostly paleo/whole30 diet, my body no longer aches. I sleep better, think clearer, and have more energy than I ever have before.
As I share what works for me along my journey to heal my body and keep it healthy one bite at a time, I hope that maybe you will find some inspiration that will help you along yours.
Thanks for stopping by.
