About Me

That sign at Central Market “Foodie Crossing” always tickled my fancy. I am definitely a foodie from a family of foodie’s! I am a foodie that loves to help other people succeed with improving their health. Helping others is natural and so is cooking and fitness, so putting the two together was a no brainer.

I am married, have a 5 year old son and a 2 year old daughter! And I was told I shouldn’t have kids or I wouldn’t be able to have kids. Another lie I wasn’t going to fall into. We live in the Dallas area and I am so enjoying this part of my life. Seeing others recover and conquer things they never thought possible is a miracle.

I have Crohn’s disease and have achieved remission with food and fitness. I was at the mercy of God, I had reached the point of “I can’t handle anymore”. I soon realized after achieving remission that I needed to get to that point, to really discover food and what the bad food I was eating, was doing to me. I started with just a Gluten Free diet after my Holistic doctor tested me and I was positive for Gluten sensitivity. Not feeling completely “well”, I researched other options and decided that I needed to start eliminating other things as well. My blog and recipes will cater to Paleo/SCD/Primal/Whole 30, as long as, it’s WHOLE food, I may experience it and share it with you!

I did realize through my health journey that it was impossible without support. That is what started me to blog. To help others with recipes, ideas and to know that you are not alone.

Most of the recipes are excellent for Low-Carb diets, GAPS, Paleo, Primal, and Gluten free/low sugar diets. They are also great for those that suffer with food allergies. ALL recipes are grain free, gluten free, refined sugar free. The only Dairy used is Butter, some Cheese, and cultured Yogurt.

I love to use holistic approaches and alternative medicine! I love cleanses, detoxing, juicing, ShakeologyEssential Oils, Fitness, and just helping others that want a healthier lifestyle, but don’t have all the resources they need.

We all need to work towards encouragement and to learn to be advocates for ourself! Whether you are just starting, struggling, or loving your new lifestyle, there are better options for things like Autism, Arthritis, Crohn’s, MS, Eczema, Celiac, Colitis, weight loss etc. A lot of things that God gave us naturally that we need to rely on more than modern medicine.

Take a look around and hope you find something to help you on this journey to a healthier lifestyle!

To good health and happiness-Brittany

    Hi Honey,

    New to GAPS and Paleo since being tested for food allergies last month. Yeast is the culprit for me but gluten, grains and sugar are also on the list. I also struggle with what to eat for breakfast. This am, sauteed spinach, tomato, cilantro with a scrambled local egg. I’ve also been experimenting with almond, rice and coconut flours and look forward to trying the apple crisp. I love that we have this food connection. You definitely come from a family of ‘foodies’. I hate that these gut issues seem to run in the family. Puppa also suffers. I love your new SCD page and look forward to trying your recipes and sharing some of my own. Love to you. Auntie Carey

        Loving your posts! Made homemade yogurt with local raw organic milk a few days ago. It was so easy and delicious. Of course, raw milk has all the good bacteria which store bought organic milk does not due to pasteurization.

    Thank you for all of your wonderful recipes!! I am excited to try them. I just recently started the SCD diet. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis a year and a half ago. I am hoping this diet will help keep me in remission!

      Well I’m so glad you discovered SCD as most doctors say diet doesn’t help. That is ludicrous. I wish you all the best hope to hear how some of the recipes turn out for you!

    My husband has had Crohn’s for almost 10 years. I found the SCD diet a year ago and he has been on and off (you know how hard it can be) and since jumping back in this month, I found your blog; the best I’ve found yet. We’ve got two little ones as well, and I eat right along side him for support. Your food is delicious, creative and inspiring. Please don’t stop posting, I feel like you are in my kitchen every day!

      Miriam, you have made my day. Blogging and cooking is time consuming but I love to help others and just knowing that one person appreciates it, makes it all worth it! I wish you and your family the best. Come back often, the site is about to become much more user friendly! All updates to the site will post to facebook, so make sure you stop by to stay updated!

    First and foremost, great website. I am excited about your recipes and I love your approach to life. You have encouraged me. At the age of 18 I was diagnosed with Crohn’s dx. A well respected GI doc told me “You have a severe case and will most likely need to be on medication for the rest of your life”. I took his word. Three months into infusions, pills and terrible side effects I received the biggest blessing. A dear lady from my church introduced me to SCD. Within weeks on the diet and eating rich homemade yogurt I felt one hundred times better. No more medications, no terrible pains, no unpredictable-painful bowel movements. I had energy and, thankfully, began to gain weight! This diet has been a total life changer. I got to go to college, make wonderful friends, run marathons, meet my husband and become a Registered Nurse. Seven years later I am still without medication, I am still on the diet. I love teaching patients, friends and even doctors about SCD. Yes I am in the field of medicine, yet I whole heartily believe in a natural, holistic approach to gaining health. In the last couple years I seen more doctors turning their head to listen and learn about diet approach to GI health. So encouraging! Thank you so much for the talent, time and energy you have put into your website. You are greatly impacting peoples life! Look forward to following your website.

      Angela you are so sweet. What a blessing it is to me to hear these words. Things are really backwards in healing these bowel diseases. I feel so badly for those that have no idea what they are killing themselves with, all the wrong food!

      I wish you continued success on your journey! So glad you are enjoying the site!

    Thanks so much for posting this! I am an 18 year old in high school and eating right for my Crohn’s disease is difficult, as you all know. I appreciate the help with meals here, and your recipies look amazing. Thank you!

      Savannah, it is difficult but you will reap the benefits of not having to start on heavy medications so early in your life. I wish I had known of SCD at 18, I may have saved myself 2 surgeries! Come by on Facebook, people ask questions and it is a great place for support! Good luck with everything and thanks for the comment!

    Hi, new reader here! Stumbled upon your site via Pinterest recently and currently have a pan of Almond butter Blondies in the oven. :) My husband and I (and slowly, our 4 and 2 year olds) are beginner Primal eaters (no reason, other than it all makes so much sense!!), and I’ve already got a huge handful of your recipes flagged to try! I’m so grateful for bloggers such as yourself, who do all the hard work and share it with your readers. Thank you, thank you! Gotta run, I smell those Blondies, think they might be ready for a taste check or two.

    Let me say first, you are amazing!
    I just happened upon your blog trying to read more about scd diet. I have been on and off yeast connection diet for twenty years now and my new doctor just suggested the gaps diet. It has taken me awhile to come around but I’m ready and finding your blog has added the motivation I have much needed for months. I can’t wait to try your recipes and start fermenting vegetables.
    Your demo takes the worry out of the prep for me. Thanks so much! I can’t wait to share with friends and family. My son has been battling with ADD issues for years do you have any recipe suggestions for him he loves pizza?
