So why write a blog?  Aren't there enough bloggers out there?  Well, yes and no.

I've found that most, if not all, of the bloggers I follow can seem too perfect after a while.  Not real. Not like me. I like what they're all saying, and the recipes look great, but they end up losing me because I can't relate to them as a person.

Some seem to spend their every waking moment in the kitchen, others are doing endless yoga retreats and juice cleanses (the childless ones), and the rest are way too fanatical about the particular diet they're following. There is no joy, just carefully choreographed selfies showing their perfect dinner plate or basket of organic produce from their local farmers market (again, childless).

I think there's room for someone like me and I hope you do too.  I've been through a hell of a lot, healthwise, and have learned many wonderful things along the way, both about myself and health in general.  I'd like to share some of these experiences with you so that I can connect and give hope to anyone who needs it.  I'm not a scientist, a nutritionist, or any real "expert" for that matter.  I'm just a chick who had a shitty experience in my mid 20's which changed my life forever. I can offer realistic advice about improving your health and lifestyle because that is what I've been slowly doing for the past 16 years, operative word "slowly".  My aim is to keep it real. I hope you'll join me...
